    I read in one of your other posts that Magic Kingdom open their turnstiles 1 hour before park opening. Is this the case for the other parks, such as Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom?

    Greetings, Sharon!

    Welcome back to planDisney with a great question. We are delighted to continue to help you plan pixie-dusted visits to the Walt Disney World Resort. I also cannot wait to return to the magic and hear that long-awaited “welcome home” once again!

    I simply love getting up very early and being among the first visitors to enter the theme parks in the morning. Guests used to be allowed to enter Magic Kingdom Park one hour before opening time, and other parks sometimes allowed entry a little before rope drop. However, due to the current situation, Guests are now required to have a theme park reservation in addition to park admission for the same date of their visit, and they are advised to head to the park’s main entrance during their scheduled arrival window. Theme park reservations can be made via the Disney Park Pass system after tickets have been purchased and successfully linked to your Disney account. You may even check availability before selecting which park to visit each day of your stay. 

    Sharon, thank you for stopping by planDisney once again. I hope this helps you while planning and that you continue to visit us for more tips and advice. 

    Best magical wishes,
