Magic Kingdom Rope Drop

Each WDW park used to do something special to kick off the opening of the park for the day.  It seems now the only park that still holds a rope drop ceremony is the Magic Kingdom.  The ceremony happens in the area right after the main entrance to the park, at the top of the railroad station.  The fire chief welcomes all the visitors and there is a whole song and dance that is done.  One lucky family is selected to officially open up the park.  Rather than describe it, let me show you a video that I took of it back in May 20, 2010.


  1. My wife and I are DVC members and have, naturally, been going to Disney World for years. I still get excited like a kid each and every morning at the opening of whatever park we are hitting that day.

    1. I do too. I never get that with any other theme park.
