    Hi, do you recommend going to the opening of the new MMRR attraction on March 4? Or is it better to go another day? Disney plans something special for that day? Thanks.

    ¡Hola Jorge! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're so happy you're here with your vacation planning question.

    How exciting that your upcoming trip coincides with the debut of the first ride through attraction in a Disney theme park to feature Mickey Mouse himself! I can't wait to experience this zany new ride; it is going to be a fabulous addition to Disney's Hollywood Studios

    I can understand being unsure about visiting a theme park on the day a brand new attraction opens. While it would be so exciting to say "I was there the day it opened," you would likely encounter higher than normal crowds of guests who also want to be present for day one. If it were me, I would probably wait to experience Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway until later in my trip, and maybe keep my eye on My Disney Experience to try and secure a FastPass+ reservation for any day of my vacation. For tips on how to check FastPass+ availability at one park while still maintaining current selections at another, check out this question I recently answered for another guest.

    I spoke with a Cast Member who informed me that at the current time, Disney does not have anything special planned for opening day. Keep your eyes on the Disney Parks Blog for updates regarding all special events; you never know what could pop up! Recently, for the opening of Toy Story Land in 2017 and Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in 2019, dedication ceremonies were held the day prior to official openings, and while these were not both fully open to the general public, they were live streamed. I recommend speaking with a Cast Member at your resort or Disney's Hollywood Studios upon arrival for up to date information regarding anything special happening during your visit.

    I hope you have a wonderful time on your spring adventure, Jorge! I see that you will be visiting us from Chile. Did you know that we have some panelists on the Disney Parks Moms Panel that also answer questions in Spanish? If you have any local friends or family members who would like their planning questions answered in Spanish, send them on over to see us

    ¡Buen viaje!
