    Hi! We’re staying at Copper Creek next week!! What is the current rope drop situation? Are we able to enter magic kingdom before they open around 7 if we take the water taxi over?

    Hello, Jennifer and welcome back to planDisney! My fellow panelists and I love to see a returning guest and I'm happy to help with another question! 

    Jennifer, while sometimes it's tough to wake up early at my house, I seem to leap out of bed at the Walt Disney World Resort ready to soak up the Magic as early as possible, so I appreciate this question. I love to "rope-drop" the parks when the weather is more tepid and the air is crisp. Currently the posted opening time for Magic Kingdom Park during your stay is 8:00 AM and while sometimes the Fairy Godmother waves her Magic Wand and opens the park early, there is no way to guarantee that sprinkling of pixie dust. I will, however, encourage you to proceed with your plan and arrive at the boat launch as early as possible in the hopes you'll be one of the first to walk down Main Street, U.S.A. for the day. 

    Jennifer, my family and I will also be staying at Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge this month and I have written in our schedule to leave our room around 6:30 AM for the 8:00 AM park opening (even though we might need to wait a bit for a boat). 

    Jennifer, while I'm sorry I wasn't able to give you a more definitive answer, I do hope this helps in planning for your day at Magic Kingdom Park. If you have any other questions, please come on back to planDisney! 

    Wishing you a truly memorable stay that will have you grinning from ear to EAR.
