    Hello, Kathryn!

    What a wonderful time of year to be visiting Walt Disney World!

    On Monday, November 19, 2012, Magic Kingdom Park is scheduled to open at 9 a.m. Transportation is typically available one hour prior to a park's opening, so these buses should begin running at 8 a.m. I suggest that you try to be there as close to that time as possible.

    Because you'll be heading to Magic Kingdom Park close to a major holiday, the crowd level may be higher than you expect. According to, MK is estimated to rank 9.1 out of 10 for crowd levels that day. Many of those folks may need to wait in line for ticketing issues and purchases, too, so you'll need to allow for the possibility of a bit of a wait in that line as well.

    Worst case scenario? You got there early to find the lines were just fine, and you're able to witness all of the fun that surrounds the park's opening (and some extra time to leisurely make your way to breakfast at Cinderella Castle!)

    Have a fantastic trip! Be sure to send more questions as you think of them, too. I'd love to help!
