    Hello My? Ressie at Ohana's for 9:45am would I be able to see the opening ceramony at MK and still make the ressies at Ohana's. 1st visit for the rest of my group and also our last day. would like to also view the water pagent that ngt any advice nvr seen


    Usually the Opening Ceremonies for the Magic Kingdom begin around 8:40ish when the park officially opens at 9 a.m. with Mickey and the gang arriving by train to the front station.  You should have no problem seeing them from the area between the bag check and the turnstiles....

    Afterward, you'll have plenty of time to catch the monorail around to its second stop--about a 10- to 12-minute ride--at the Polynesian. 

    As for the water pageant, you didn't mention where you are staying but you can view it from all of the resorts in the Magic Kingdom area.  Be aware that the pageant's times change seasonally and vary from resort to resort.  But you can ask your concierge about times when you arrive.  You can see it from most of the resort piers, but if you're still in the Magic Kingdom area, the Polynesian beach is a favorite viewing spot.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
