    If the park is open at 8am for EMH, will Tinker's Nook/Ariel's Grotto also be open at 8am? Or do they not ever open until 9am? Thanks for the great advice! 21 days to go! :)

    Hello Cynthia,

    Watching your child meet their favorite Disney characters are some of the most magical moments I hold most dear to my heart and will carry those memories always. At the moment, Ariel is able to rise and shine and naturally swim early enough to meet her Guests during morning Extra Magic Hours in her Grotto. But Tinker Bell and her Friends are busy prepping Pixie Hollow for the Guests and typically aren't ready until the regular opening hours of Magic Kingdom Park. 

    I hope this helps with your planning and may your upcoming stay at Walt Disney World be memorable. If I can be of any further pixie dusted assistance feel free to ask.

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
