We are not rope drop people and have been twice to disney but never saw the opening show. Would it be worth it to get up early and see the show and if so what time would you suggest we arrive at the park. Thanks
The MK Welcome Show (Rope Drop Show) is performed at different "opening times" depending on how and when the MK opens.Do the have this show on 8 am openings?
ThanksThe MK Welcome Show (Rope Drop Show) is performed at different "opening times" depending on how and when the MK opens.
EMM (Early Morning Magic) MK Welcome Show plays only for regular park opening.
AM EMH: MK Welcome Show plays only for AM EMH opening.
REGULAR Park Day: MK Welcome Show plays for regular park opening.
(Sometimes the MK "regular hours opening time" gets moved to 8AM.)
Be prepared for the MK Welcome Show to begin approx. 20 min. before the posted opening time.
Also, it's important to note that there are several "versions" of the MK Welcome Show.
One (the most complete full version) offers singers and dancers and the steam train and the Family of the Day and the Disney characters.
But, some offer not all of those features, and some (the shortest version) offers NONE of those features and is simply an audio recording welcoming guests to the MK.
Although it is most often that the full version will be shown...
there is no way to know in advance which version will be performed.
Best to not "discuss" the opening with your group (especially young kids) in advance,
just in case you get a smaller version of the show.
