    Can someone clarify the new rope drop at MK. So we can enter Main Street, but not pass the castle? Is this correct?

    As Mickey says, “Hiya, Pal!” Nicole, you’re going to love the new Magic Kingdom welcome show, “Let the Magic Begin!” It’s full of fun and a great way to start your day at Walt Disney World Resort.

    If Magic Kingdom opens at 9am, guests will be allowed to enter as early as 8am and they will have access to all of Main Street, U.S.A., including the Main Street Bakery, the Emporium and Harmony Barber Shop. You can grab a bite to eat, take photos into front of the castle with the help of Disney PhotoPass Photographers, and purchase yourself those must-have ear hats!

    You are correct when you state that you won’t be able to go further than Cinderella Castle, or gain access to the bridges that shoot out to the “lands” of Magic Kingdom Park. There will be Cast Members to guide you, so don’t worry about stepping off the correct path. If you find yourself with extra time, you can stop by the Firehouse and start a new game of Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, and begin with all the secret portals on Main Street, U.S.A. It’s a lot of fun! Have a wonderful vacation! ~Lindsey P.
