    Magic Kingdom no longer does the train opening ceremony?  Now u can get into the park early for opening show? What is that & what time should my family arrive? Will Disney transportation get us there early enough from our WDW resort?

    Welcome back, Amanda!

    You are correct. Earlier this year Magic Kingdom Park debuted a whole new way to start your morning. Guests can now enter Main Street, U.S.A. up to an hour before the park opens to shop, eat, enjoy a cup of coffee or just soak in the Disney details. Then a few minutes before the scheduled opening Mickey will open the rest of the park with a few friends and "Let the Magic Begin."

    Depending on how much time you want to spend on Main Street, U.S.A., will dictate how early you and your family should arrive and yes, you are able to take Disney transportation.

    Happy planning, Amanda, and please let us know if there is anything else we are able to assist you with.

    Magical Wishes,
