    What time should we arrive to the parks if we want to see them open? If say it opens at 8 am? Also we want to be there in the treasure store when Tink wakes up, what time is that? Ive got littles so i want to make sure i give my self enough time to arrive

    Welcome back, Melissa!

    Arriving early to be one of the first Guests inside a theme park is one of my favorite parts of any Walt Disney World Resort vacation! No matter how many times I see the Magic Kingdom Welcome Show, my heart pounds with excitement when I hear the train whistle and see all the characters welcoming us! Currently, the Magic Kingdom is the only theme park with an official opening ceremony, and that takes place daily about 20 minutes before park opening. You can check the exact times during your visit via the My Disney Experience mobile app or the online entertainment schedule.  

    Unfortunately, Guests are no longer able to wake up Tinker Bell. However, you can make a FastPass+ reservation to Meet Tinker Bell at Town Square Theater so your little Mouseketeers are sure to meet her! 

    I hope this helps with your planning! Please visit us again should other questions arise as you continue to plan your magical visit!

    Happy Planning!
