    Do you receive free gifts if you are one of the first one in the gates during the monrning extra hour? We are going in February, 2009.


    No, I have never gotten a gift for being one of the first guests entering at the start of extra magic hours at any of the parks.

    However, at the parks they do put on a great show as the park opens! Often known as the "rope drop", at the parks they put on some fun entertainment as they let you in the park. 

    Magic Kingdom has a song-and-dance show with a family picked to 'open' the park.
    Hollywood Studios puts on a fun show with 1920s era costumed actors.
    Animal Kingdom has Mickey and friends starting out on a safari.

    These are all fun, and a fun touch to arriving early!

I am one of the Dads on the planDisney Panel, and I love to help parents plan their vacation, with a focus on showing them how it can be fun for them too. I am also here to help Dads plan some nice surprises for the Moms in their life (they deserve it!). Learn More About Doug
