Are you planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort in 2017?
New enhancements are coming to the way guests will experience the opening of Magic Kingdom Park – starting on January 9!
If you’ve experienced the park’s “opening moment” during previous vacations, you may recall waiting at the front of the park to kick off the day.
Beginning January 9, guests will be allowed to enter the Main Street, U.S.A. area of the park even earlier than the park’s scheduled opening time.
This will allow guests time to savor the charm of Main Street, U.S.A., enjoy breakfast or a warm drink at the Main Street Bakery featuring Starbucks.
Then promptly at opening, a new welcome show will officially open the park for the day on the Castle Forecourt Stage.
A Royal Herald will appear to deliver a proclamation and welcome a few familiar characters to the stage, officially opening the park so “the magic can begin!”
