    Hi,I'm from Brazil .My husband, my 2yr-old daughter and I are going to WDW Apr27 and we are trying to get as much info as possible. When a park opens at 9am does it really open at 9 or sometime before? Thank you and congratulations on the panel. I love it!

    Hi Andrea!  The opening times for the parks are published on the Disney website,  They will open at those times but please note some of the parks have Extra Magic Hours and they will open an hour early.  This will be stated on the calendar for the parks.

    I always suggest you arrive a bit early.  The Magic Kingdom has a fun opening ceremony you will want to see.  At Animal Kingdom you will actually be allowed in early from the main gate but it is for a short opening ceremony near the Tree of Life.  You will wait there for the regular opening time.  Lines will grow at the gates for all the parks about 30 minutes before opening time.

    April is coming soon and I am sure your family is getting more and more excited each day!
