    What time do the gift shops open just outside magic kingdom? Can I buy autograph books before the park opens at 9?

    Hi Christa!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    My boys loved getting character autographs when they were younger and I love having the books as special keepsakes to represent all of our magical memories.

    The shops outside of Magic Kingdom Park generally open about one hour prior to park opening. However, you can actually now enter the park an hour before official opening and wander about on Main Street, U.S.A.  The rest of the park will open at the scheduled time, but you can use that hour to get the books in one of the shops on Main Street, like the Emporium. Main Street Bakery will also be open if you're looking for some breakfast and Starbucks coffee.

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
