    My family and I are going to Disney World in November and would like to attend the EMH Opening Ceremony. We are staying at Port Orleans Riverside and I would like your suggestion on a time to leave the resort to get there in plenty of time to watch this.

    Hi Sharon!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The Welcome Show is so much fun!  It's a great way to start your day, and if you get there that early you can also beat the crowds onto some of the most popular attractions.

    Buses officially begin running from Walt Disney World Resorts about an hour before the earliest park opening.  Unofficially, though, I have often been able to catch them a bit earlier.  If I want to be at a rope drop ceremony, I plan to be at the bus station an hour and a half before the park opens.  

    I think you will find that this gets you there in plenty of time to see the opening!

    I hope this helps.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
