    Hi! We're currently planning our trip to DisneyWorld and would love to visit after our flight landed. So it'll be around 6 p.m. when we enter the park? Is this still possible and how long are the opening hours?

    Hi Julia, welcome to planDisney's magical corner of the digital universe!

    Mickey and the rest of the Fab 50 characters can't wait for your arrival at Walt Disney World Resort's 50th Anniversary celebration. Whether arriving by car, bus, plane, pumpkin coach, or magic carpet, you'll know you've reached your destination when you pass under one of the iconic Walt Disney World World archways. Keep your tissues handy!   

    In my opinion, Julia, the sooner you can immerse yourself in the magic of the theme parks, the better. As long as you have a valid admission and park pass reservation linked to your My Disney Experience account, you are welcome to enter and exit the parks as you please. During my September visit, my flight landed at Orlando International Airport at 6:00 p.m. I took an Uber to my Disney Resorts Collection hotel, left my bags at bell services, and headed straight to Magic Kingdom park to experience the fireworks. I had been dreaming of that magical moment for weeks and it did not disappoint.

    I recommend starting your vacation off with a bang, as well, by experiencing either Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom park or Harmonious at EPCOT. Both new nighttime spectaculars will inspire you to believe in the power of possibility. You'll also want to consider the park hours. The only park I would not recommend for your arrival day is Disney's Animal Kingdom park because it typically closes the earliest each day. Animals need their beauty sleep, too!
    If the wish your heart makes is to immerse yourself in theme park magic on your day of arrival, Julia, consider your wish granted. This planDisney fairy godsister's still got some juice in my magic wand, so don't hesitate to reach out with more wishes.

    Choose magic,
