    Hi, I´ve heard about the "Family of the Day". Can anyone explain what is it? TXS!

    Hi Michelle!

    The family of the day at the Magic Kingdom is chosen first thing in the morning at random.  The lucky family will meet the Mayor of Main Street USA and will be featured with him and the characters on the train to assist in the opening ceremony of the Magic Kingdom.  

    There is no formula to how the family is chosen, you just have to have some luck and pixie dust on your side!  Helpful tips are to arrive at least 30 minutes before the park opens, interact with the Cast Members and most of all, SMILE!

    Have a magical day!
