Happy New Year from Walt Disney World! This week, we are heading to the Magic Kingdom to see what’s new. Let’s go!
Starting Monday, January 9th, the Magic Kingdom will present a new “ Opening Moment”. Guests will be allowed early access to Main Street USA so they can stop for breakfast and shop. The Castle forecourt stage will host this special welcome to open the Park for the day. The current welcome show takes place at the front gates and the Main Street Railroad station.
