    My family and I are going in February to WDW and we were wondering if all the parks do special openings before the parks open each day? If so, do they do it for regular hours or do they do it for extra magic hours opening time? Let me know!

    Hi Amber!

    Your magical vacation is so close!  I'm sure you are busy counting down the days and finalizing your plans.  How exciting!

    The Magic Kingdom is the only park that has a true Welcome Show before opening.  There is a calendar on the link I have provided, however, the general rule of thumb is it begins 15-minutes prior to park opening, including before morning Extra Magic Hours.  I suggest arriving at least 30-minutes prior just so you are sure to find a great place to watch it from and have your camera at the ready to catch Mickey and the gang.

    Have a wonderful adventure and please stop back by if there are any last minute questions we can help you with.

    Magical Wishes,
