If we can actually get up early enough to make RD what park would you pick to do it at? Magic Kingdom? We've never done it before!
I suggest MK! The train stops at the main gate with Mickey and friends as well as the Mayor of Main St. It's like an opening ceremony and a really cool and magical way to start the fun for the day! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #16 10:32AM
Just talked my family into waking up early the 2nd day of our trip so that we can make RD. Thanks for the great idea and info!!!! - BagGal  221.2 #31 5:25PM
We've never made it. But I think I want to really try it on our next trip ... And I think I would do MK?! - JessiBelle22  78.4 #66 9:06AM
MK for sure. When we go my mom and aunt are at rope drop every morning. - Bakerjars  236.7 #28 9:32AM
Rope drop has some type of performance right?  Showing up a minumum of 30 minutes prior to park opening?  I want to go, but we are from a different time zone and we don't try to adjust our sleep or meals to EST, so getting up and being at RD at 8:30 would mean us getting up at 6:30AM (our time) on vacation?  Just not sure . . . Maybe I"ll go by myself, I'm an early riser, leave the kids and hubby behind, LOL!! - DizneyGirl  527.1 #9 9:48AM
At MK all the characters come in on the train and do a little show. - Bakerjars  236.7 #28 10:32AM
They do a cute little show at HS too! It's a 3-hour time difference for me and our goal is to always arrive around park opening. Don't you adjust after you've been there a few days? - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  745.6 #4 11:07AM
MK is the best!!! - Deppsfan  37.7 #101 11:17AM
I would do mk, I've been to all the other parks for rd except mk, we are actually going to try and make rd at HS tomorrow - nodell111  159.5 #44 11:23AM
Great question, Diz! Thanks for posting it! We've never made a RD either. I'd love to try though. MK RD sounds so fun, I'll have to talk my family into waking up earlier!! :) - BagGal  221.2 #31 11:52AM
We were at RD for MK once.  Characters came out shortly after and we were able to see Mickey and Pluto out front for meet and greets.  That was 2005 though, not sure if they still do that or not. - mrsincredible  731.3 #5 12:02PM
MK!! No experience like it anywhere...early in the morning on main street and the music and mayor and castle is just magical:-) Good thing someone else said "rope drop" before me..i had no idea what RD meant and was gonna ask..Lol - mickeynme  149.6 #46 12:11PM
We did it last September and get there about 35 minutes before and it was already pretty crowded. - Ariel42  252.7 #24 12:47PM
We love RD at MK. Great experience! - BodinFabFive  26.3 #128 1:18PM
I can hardly wait!! - DizneyGirl  527.1 #9 2:17PM
I always try to each trip and it never happens, but we usually get to the parks 30 minutes after opening. MK seems like it has the best RD! - Andrea84  601.0 #7 7:04PM
