    Hi :-) my question is about Early Morn Magic. It says check in will be near the left turnstiles of the main entrance to MK at 7.30am. Does anyone know a bit more about how to get there and when we catch the ferry to MK etc? I'm a bit confused. Thanks x

    Hi Louise!

    The Early Morning Magic event in the Magic Kingdom is a great way to start your park day. You will be enjoying at least three attractions and a hearty breakfast before anyone else enters Fantasyland.

    Check in does begin at 7:30. Try to arrive in the Magic Kingdom parking lot if you are driving your own car no later then 7am. This will give you time to park and catch the ferry to reach the park entrance. If you are taking a Disney bus from a Disney resort you will be dropped off at the entrance turnstiles and won't need to take the ferry.

    Cast members will be located to the far left of the entrance. You will need to check in with one of them and they will get you into line for early entrance. There will also be guests who have early dining reservations at some of the restaurants. Around 7:45 you will be allowed to enter Main Street ahead of everyone else and you will then walk to Fantasyland where the fun begins. You can ride the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train as many times as you wish or hop over to Peter Pan and Winnie the Pooh to enjoy those attractions. I strongly suggest you do not eat until after 9am to enjoy the rides without lines. Once the park opens the lines will build quickly and that is the time to head to your private breakfast.

    If it still seems a bit confusing when you arrive please don't hesitate to ask any cast member who can direct you to the proper location. Enjoy this special hour of almost having a part of the park all to yourself!
