    Hi,I'm getting conflicting info. The TouringPlan I made says the MK welcome show is @ 7:50am, before EMH. I was told it is always before regular park opening(9am),regardless of morning EMH. Can u help me? What time should we be on WL boat for EMH @ MK?

    Hi Jennifer,

    Disney does change procedures from time to time, so perhaps this is the source of your conflicting information.

    In my personal experience, there is an abbreviated welcome show performed prior to opening on Extra Magic mornings and that's it. This will happen at approximately 7:50 on morning EMH days. That's the only show that happens on EMH days.

    The full welcome show happens only when the park has the regular opening time of 9:00.

    I've stayed at the Wilderness Lodge many times (it's my DVC home resort). If you're at the WL and want go to the MK for EMH, you should try to be at the boat dock by about 7:20. The ride itself takes only about 10 minutes, but you may have to wait a few minutes on the dock for a boat to arrive.

    You should also double check at the front desk the night before the MK EMH. Sometimes there are transportation procedure changes where they decide to run buses in the morning rather than boats. It never hurts to be sure that nothing has changed during your visit.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
