    MK rope drop: I know Main Street restaurants and shops are open 60m before, But is there still a little pre-open show w Mickey and gang? If so where do we stand? How do we see the show and also hold our spot in line to rush to rides at rope drop?

    Welcome back, Ellen!

    There's a new show that welcomes guests each morning at the Magic Kingdom. Let the Magic Begin features Mickey, and several of his friends that will be out front of Cinderella Castle greeting guests just before the park officially opens. 

    There is plenty of room to stand in front of Cinderella Castle, but I know that you want to get into Fantasyland and head to your favorite attraction. Most of the guests in the park have the same idea as you and want to head into Fantasyland to experience Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

    A perfect place to stand and watch the welcome show and be in the perfect position to enter into Fantasyland is a bit difficult to pinpoint. You may be able to find a spot in the hub just off of the sidewalk that leads into Fantasyland that will give you a good view of the stage and a great spot to head to your desired attraction once the "rope" drops. 

    Enjoy the show and the Magic Kingdom! If you have more questions, feel free to visit with us again! 

    Happy planning,
