    This is going to be a random silly question but...what is there to do while we wait for Rope Drop? Are there shops we can go to or character interactions? I have a little one that might get antsy is why I ask.

    Emily no question is too silly for me. In fact the sillier the better for this kid at heart. Thanks for stopping by planDisney, I have a couple of fun things to do so let's get started. 

    One of my favorite things to do is wake up super early on vacation, especially when I am at the Walt Disney World Resort. Anytime I am using the term rope-drop I am a happy camper. If you are planning to be at Magic Kingdom Park bright and early, the first thing I like to do is read the credits. If you remember in the early days of movies the credits came before the movie. While you walk down Main Street U.S.A. if you look at some of the windows and doors you can see real Disney legends' names. Pull out your smartphone to look up the names to see how they contributed. Another way to pass the time is waiting for the Main Street Vehicles. I took a ride with my little lady for the first time. She thought it was cool that the driver kept honking the horn, and that it was an actual horn. The Main Street Bakery is also open for business nice and early. That place has all the goods, adults can get their java and kids can get a pastry of some sort for breakfast. C'mon, it's vacation. Let 'em have the sweets. 

    Since you mentioned your little one, my little ones are no longer that but we still do some of the same things, especially after rope dropping. A mid-day break is a must. We love the tremendous fireworks displays at the end of the night. Happily Ever After was actually one of the shows we watched as they grew up. It made its return to the Magic Kingdom skies in April. The only way they used to make it to see it was with those two to three-hour breaks. When I found that formula I never strayed from it again, and a bad park day is tough to have when you are rested up at the end of the day when everyone else is wearing down. 

    If you have any other questions, even the ones that feel silly. Feel free to reach out and ask me a question. I will be happy to help in any way that I can.

    Have a magical day,

    Jeremy A.
