Topic: Characters Open MK Park, Are they still arriving by train?< Next Oldest | Next Newest >

I read somewhere that the MK opens the park by having the characters arrive on the WDW railroad. Are they still doing this? I haven't heard it mentioned anywhere lately. Do they arrive at the official opening time (9:00?) or unofficial opening time (8:30)? Do they do this on early entry mornings? Do they get off the train and mingle with guests?

If they are still doing this, I'll try to get us out the door and over there in time to see it. I think it would be fun to see at least once.

Thanks!

They were still doing this in October last year, and we went on a non early entry day and it was right at park opening 9:00 if I recall correctly. It's definitely a must see!!

Yes, they are still doing the show! Wehen we arrived on a non-early entry day, they let us in at about 8:30 into a roped off section in between the turnstiles and the railroad. then after the show, they dropped the rope and we were allowed to go as far as we could.We were headed over to big thunder railroad( in frontierland) and they had you wait until it was 9am before they dropped another rope and walked you to frontierland!When you come off the monorail at the MK from the poly, go to the right side. It seemed when we were there, everyone was waiting at the turnstiles on the left side. I heard a security cop mention that he didn't know why everyone was headed over there since all the turnstiles were open. We were always the first through! If you have a ps before the park open, go to the left side!!
