    Is Magic Kingdom the only park that has a daily opening ceremony?

    Hi Mary!

    Thanks for popping by the Moms Panel with your great question!

    Although Magic Kingdom's "Good Morning" show is the best known opening ceremony happening around Walt Disney World, it isn't the only one! Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom all have their own 'unique' ways of officially welcoming Guests into the park for the day!

    The other 3 parks' events are generally much shorter events but each do usually involve the selection of a family to participate and some sort of official 'fanfare' as the day begins. 
    I won't spoil the others for you as they're fun to check out on your own!

    Be sure to arrive at the park with plans to be through the security check point and turnstiles 15-30 minutes prior to opening time in order to be a part of the 'rope drop' at each park. Also, keep in mind that on Extra Magic Hours Mornings, the festivities happen a whole hour earlier, so be sure to check the park hours carefully before making your plans! If you're not able to see all four 'Rope Drops' during your next visit, be sure to make a point of seeing Magic Kingdom's as it is by far the most memorable!

    If you have additional questions, please feel free to write me back any time Mary! I'd love to hear from you again!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
