    Last time we arrived at MK at opening, we had to wait in line just past the main ticket booth for the gate leading to the monorail and ferry to open. Does the park ever allow people to wait for opening right at the main gate?

    Hi Sarah,

    Opening the parks is one event my family never quite makes. We are there close to opening but those few extra minutes at our resort eating breakfast helps us hit the parks running.

    We have been at Magic Kingdom for the park's opening and we were able to see the opening show at the train station and we were standing behind the park entrance.

    It could be a capacity issue with the number of guests who can see the show from this area. I recommend going as early as possible prior to the park opening. Transportation and parking opens one hour prior to the park opening.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
