    My fiance and I will be going to WDW for our Honeymoon in September. I think it would be a magical memory to be the family that helps with the MK opening ceremonies. How would we go about that?

    Hi Bill!

    Unfortunately, it really comes down to luck!  It's basically one of the many magical moments that occur on a daily basis at Walt Disney World, but only for extremely lucky guests.  That said, I do have a recommendation for you.  If you want to try to increase your chance, I've been told that you should arrive about an hour before the park is scheduled to open.  You should be outside the turnstiles on the right and you should engage in conversation with any nearby Disney Cast Members.  Everybody should look energetic and enthusiastic; I've also been told that it helps if everybody wears a matching outfit.  However, keep in mind that these are just suggestions.

    Have a fabulous honeymoon at Walt Disney World, and write back if you have any more questions!
