    What is the opening ceremony at Magic Kingdom? The latest DW book I am reading is saying something about a stage show at the castle. Have they changed it from the train pulling into the station on Main St. with the characters, etc.

    Hello Barb!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The beautiful daily welcome ceremony at Magic Kingdom Park is called Let the Magic Begin! As you enter the park, make your way through Main Street U.S.A. down to Cinderella Castle. About 5 minutes before official park opening time you will be greeted by Mickey and friends as you prepare to spend your day at the most magical place on earth!

    Barb, Guests are allowed to enter Magic Kingdom one hour before park opening. Access to all lands will be closed until opening time, but I really enjoy this hour to stroll down Main Street U.S.A., grab a cup of coffee and breakfast items at Main Street Bakery, and then secure a nice spot to watch the show.

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope this helps you while planning, and that you enjoy your early morning at iconic Magic Kingdom Park!

    Best magical wishes,
