Say Goodbye to This Magic Kingdom Show

Beginning Jan. 9, 2017 you will now be allowed to enter the Main Street, U.S.A. even earlier than the park’s scheduled opening time. The Main Street Bakery featuring Starbucks will be serving guests during this time.

A new welcome show will officially open the park for the day on the Castle Forecourt Stage. A Royal Herald will appear to deliver a proclamation and welcome a few familiar characters to the stage, officially opening the park.

I'm sorry to see the current opening go away. It's a true magical moment when the locomotive blasts the whistle and rolls in with all the characters on board. But I'm sure this new show will be a great way to open the park too.
