    Hi! Planning for our kids 1st trip in early April! Are there certain times when the characters are out on the balcony at the entrance of Magic Kingdom? I know some of the other sightings are sporadic. Thanks!!

    Hiya, Amanda! 

    It’s so magical to bring little Mouseketeers to Walt Disney World for the first time! I cherish the memories I made when I first walked through the gates of Magic Kingdom Park! Revel in all of the little moments, Amanda! Those first bites of a Mickey Pretzel, the first ride on Peter Pan’s Flight, and the first snuggly souvenir are memories you’ll never want them to forget! 

    Having a pixie-dusted experience when you first walk into Magic Kingdom Park is a must! To have the best chance of seeing some friendly faces, you’ll want to get to Magic Kingdom Park a little before the official park opening (about 15 minutes or so). Adorable Characters waving and sending kisses can be found at park opening on the balcony by Walt Disney World Railroad at the Main Street, U.S.A. station! Right after you enter the park, turn around and look up! You won’t miss their smiling faces! 

    Be sure to get your complimentary buttons at any Gift Shop in the 4 Theme Parks! Your little ones will proudly wear their “1st Visit” buttons, and you’ll want to share the joy with an “I’m Celebrating” button! I always love these little keepsakes! 

    We hope your vacation is magical, Amanda! If you have additional questions, please visit us again at planDisney!
