    My husband and I are going to be at Magic Kingdom on April 26th. I would REALLY love for us to be able to arrive in time for the "Welcome Show". We're staying at Pop Century, and will be driving our own vehicle. What's the Best way to succeed th

    Hi Amy!

    In order to make sure you catch the show that opens up the Magic Kingdom, you will want to be at the park about 20 to 30 minutes before park opening.  It takes about 15 minutes to drive from Pop Century to the Magic Kingdom's parking lot, which is really at the Transportation and Ticket Center.  Then you have to take a monorail or ferry boat to the Magic Kingdom.  Thus I would leave Pop Century no later than an hour before the park is scheduled to open.

    Enjoy planning your magical Disney vacation, and please write back with more questions!
