    How is the family picked to open Magic Kingdom each day. I would love for my family to have the opportunity to do this one time.

    Hi Tory!  Being chosen as the "first family" of the Magic Kingdom would be a very magical thing, indeed!

    Disney policy is that the family is chosen at random each morning.  From what I have heard, there are some tips you can try:

    1.  Be there REALLY early!  If you are the first family there, someone may notice.

    2.  Be friendly and happy.  Sometimes striking up a conversation with a cast member will work!  If you have a touching or magical story about your trip, it wouldn't hurt to tell them about it. 

    3.  Lots of LUCK!

    I hope you are successful in getting chosen.  But, don't be discouraged if you're not.  Either way, you still get to spend the day playing at the most magical place on Earth!

    Let me know if you have any other questions!
