    Is Magic Kingdom the only park with a Gate Opening "Show"? How does the show work with Extra Magic Hours? Do they do it twice, or just once at regular park opening/EMH opening?

    Hi Lalani.

    Each of the four Walt Disney World theme parks have their own Park Opening ceremony or 'show' and they do vary quite a bit from park to park. Magic Kingdom's "Good Morning" show is the best known and most elaborate production. The special 'show' happens at each park about 15 mins prior to the park opening time for that day.

    During Morning Extra Magic Hours, these ceremonies or shows do happen a full hour earlier than on regular mornings and only happen that one time. Be sure to check the Park Hours and Extra Magic Hours Calendars online carefully before planning which park's opening shows you'd like to see.

    I hope this information is helpful to you Lalani!
    If you have additional questions, I hope you'll visit again soon. I'd love to help you plan for your vacation!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
