5. Rope Drop –
One of the most important insider tips for getting the most out of a Walt Disney World vacation is getting to one of the four parks for rope drop. If a park opens at eight, guests should be there at seven thirty. Getting there early allows guests to ensure that they are some of the first people inside of the park and they are rewarded with minimal crowds and low wait times on popular attractions that generally are very crowded. Guests who arrive for rope drop are also treated to shows or speeches that ceremoniously open the park for the day. The Magic Kingdom’s opening show features song, dance, Disney characters, and a grand countdown. Being at the park before rope drop is a key insider secret!
