    Hello! We are leaving for WDW in 5 days!! We were planning on going to MK on a day that happens to have Early Morning Magic. If we just have a regular park ticket, will there still be a rope drop ceremony? How early can we expect to be let in?

    Hi Danielle!  Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just a few days away - are you soooo excited?  I'm sure you are busy packing and getting all the last minute details in place.

    All guests are permitted to enter the Main Street, U.S.A. area of Magic Kingdom Park about an hour prior to the stated park opening time.  Guests have the opportunity to shop, take photos, and pick up a snack or beverage as they make their way toward Cinderella Castle for the welcome show, Let the Magic Begin.  The show begins 5 minutes before the official park opening time.  You can use the calendar icon on the webpage for Let the Magic Begin to verify the time of the show on the dates you plan to visit.

    Guests with tickets for Early Morning Magic will receive wristbands to allow access to Fantasyland for the event; the welcome show takes place regardless of this event.

    Depending on the dates of your visit, you might have the opportunity to view two different fireworks shows at Magic Kingdom  Park!  Happily Ever After takes place most nights, and a special holiday show, Disney’s Celebrate America! – A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky, will be performed July 3 and 4.  Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app.  You can use it to check park hours and showtimes, attraction wait times, character greeting locations, and even order food and beverages right from your mobile device!

    Please visit the Moms Panel again if you have any additional questions.  Have a wonderful vacation!
