    What time does everything start at the Magic Kingdom- not on extra magic days. I want to get there to see the characters arrive and open the park. Thanks! Also, will the buses be running that early-staying at Beach Club Villas.

    Hi there, Dawn!

    Typically, without Extra Magic Hours, Magic Kingdom will open at either 8:00 AM or 9:00 AM to the general public. That's when the welcome show is performed and the characters come out to open the Park for the day.

    You'll find a calendar of times on the official Parks Web site; that way, you can check your exact date and make your plans accordingly.

    And buses from Disney's Beach Club will start running at least an hour in advance of Park opening. I would definitely try to get on that first bus for a great early start,

    Have a wonderful time!

    See you later, celebrator,
