    What time does the Welcome Show in front of the castle start if the park opens at 9:00 a.m.?

    Hello Susan,

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Just a few weeks after its debut, Let the Magic Begin has become a hit success. Being greeted by Mickey and friends early in the morning at Magic Kingdom Park right in front of Cinderella Castle definitely puts Guests in a great mood for the fun day ahead.

    The show starts 5 minutes before park opening, so if Magic Kingdom Park is scheduled to open at 9:00 a.m. then Let the Magic Begin will start at 8:55 a.m. Guests are actually allowed to enter the park one hour before it opens, so you can arrive early, take a stroll down Main Street U.S.A. and grab some goodies from Main Street Bakery. I must admit there is nothing like arriving very early in the morning and watching the park come to life.

    I hope you enjoy the show! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Best magical wishes,
