    Hello! I'm planning a trip to Magic Kingdom for October 17th and was just curious if they were allowing guests to enter the park before 9am? Or, because of the current pandemic, are they waiting until 9am to allow us to enter the parks?

    Welcome back, Samantha! 

    We’re so glad you decided to visit us again! 

    The turnstiles to Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort currently open before operating hours, and allow Guests to roam Main Street, U.S.A. until the lands and attractions are ready for their daily visitors! Though the opening of the turnstiles can vary day to day, you can typically enter Magic Kingdom Park 60 minutes before the listed opening time. These policies are subject to change with the continuation of the phased reopening of Walt Disney World Resort, but when I visited in July this was the standard practice! 

    You’re in for a spooky time at The Most Magical Place on Earth, Samantha! Be sure to check out the Foodie Guide to 2020 Fall Treats at Walt Disney World Resort: Parks Edition and the Fall Fun at Magic Kingdom Park articles to stay up-to-date with all the magical Halloween-happenings during your vacation! 

    We’d love to hear from you again, Samantha! We’ll be waiting where the crypt doors creak and the tombstones quake at planDisney!

    Hurry back!
