    With the new opening show procedures, will stroller rentals be available before rope drop? Thanks!

    Hello Marcy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The Let the Magic Begin Welcome Show at Magic Kingdom helps every guests prepare for their magical day before the Theme Park officially opens

    Roughly five minutes before Magic Kingdom is scheduled to open, the Let the Magic Begin Welcome Show begins in front of Cinderella Castle.  To ensure that guests are able to enjoy the experience, Main Street, U.S.A. is open to guests roughly 40 minutes before official Theme Park opening.  During this time several shops and Main Street Bakery are open for early shopping  and delicious baked goods(and Starbucks coffee).

    During this time, the Stroller Rentals kiosk located just inside the Main Tickets Gates is available for guests to rent their strollers for the day.

    With so much to do before rope drop, I recommend you arrive early enough in order to get through security clearance and the Main Ticket Gates in order to rent your stroller with enough time to enjoy the festivities.

    Have a Magical Morning!
