    Want to see the "rope drop" at MK. Should I be there by 8:30 & do the characters arrive on the train?

    Hello and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The ever popular "Rope Drop" is something you will not want to miss.  It truly is a most MAGICAL moment that sets the tone for the rest of the day.  The "real world" no longer exits the moment the Walt Disney World Railroad shows up with many of your classic Disney characters.  "Rope Drop" typically happens 10 to 15 minutes prior to park opening.  I highly recommend showing up at least 45 minutes early in order to secure a great view point.  

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  If you love classic Disney, you simply must dine at Chef Mickey's and meet with Mickey and the Gang. The all-you-care-to-eat buffet is delicious and the company is MAGICAL!

    Have  MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
