    MK opening is at 7am for EMHs and 8am for non resort guest. The opening ceremony at the train station is 7:15am.. Transportation for the MK starts at 7:30am (non resort). How do I get there to see the opening ceremony?

    Seasons Greetings Gary!

    It is wonderful to hear you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort so soon. Christmas is such a magical time made even brighter with the help of Disney.

    On days where Magic Kingdom has Extra Magic Hours, the Magic Kingdom Welcome Show happens 10-15 minutes prior to the early opening time. So, if the Extra Magic Hours start at 7 AM the Welcome Show for that day will begin around 6:45 AM. Luckily, transportation will starts approximately one hour before the park opens (even for Extra Magic Hours) so you shouldn't have a problem getting to the park to see the opening festivities. 

    I hope this clears things up, but if there is any other question or concern I may address, please let me know.

    Have a very magical vacation, Gary!

    Yuletide Wishes,
