    If MK has EMH, will the Let the Magic Begin, start earlier?

    Hello Crystal!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It is an honor to answer your first question.

    Let the Magic Begin is a beautiful welcome show where Mickey and friends give a most royal welcome to all Guests, and then daily festivities are ready to begin at Magic Kingdom Park. This early morning welcome starts about 5 minutes prior to official park opening, even on days morning Extra Magic Hours are offered. 

    If you are going to enjoy morning Extra Magic Hours, I suggest that you do so and go to your favorite rides and attractions, and then position yourself close to Cinderella Castle before park opening time to join in the fun of Let the Magic Begin. 

    Did you know that Extra Magic Hours are only one of the many benefits offered to Guests who stay at Disney Resort hotels? Some of my other favorite benefits are complimentary transportation, complimentary MagicBands, and being able to select FastPass+ experiences 60 days prior to arrival. 

    I hope this helps you while planning, Crystal! We will be waiting to hear from you with more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
