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! - Jalex239  379.9 #25 7:32AM
What time do I need to get there, in early September? - DizneyGirl  1491.3 #5 8:02AM
Good question. I'd try to get there about 30 minutes or so before the rope drop to get a good view of the opening show. You definitely should catch it at least once on your trip. We were happy we did! - Jalex239  379.9 #25 8:37AM
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  345.7 #27 2:25PM
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 #85 6:06AM
MK for sure. When we go my mom and aunt are at rope drop every morning. - Bakerjars  264.7 #37 6:32AM
I have never done rope drop....what exactly is it, and when do you need to get there? - ncjal  331.8 #28 6:43AM
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  1491.3 #5 6:48AM
At MK all the characters come in on the train and do a little show. - Bakerjars  264.7 #37 7:32AM
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  1479.5 #6 8:07AM
We could adjust, but it's easier to just book ADRs for or meal times, especially with kids. Our time difference isn't that big, but getting up early is hard for everyone except me - DizneyGirl  1491.3 #5 11:07AM
MK is the best!!! - Deppsfan  37.7 #131 8:17AM
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  166.4 #56 8:23AM
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  345.7 #27 8:52AM
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  1433.7 #7 9:02AM
You can meet a bunch of characters and the mayor hangs out on Main St to say hello and take pics with! - Jalex239  379.9 #25 9:24AM
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  226.8 #43 9:11AM
We did it last September and get there about 35 minutes before and it was already pretty crowded. - Ariel42  262.9 #38 9:47AM
Forgot to say we did it at MK - Ariel42  262.9 #38 10:26AM
We love RD at MK. Great experience! - BodinFabFive  26.3 #151 10:18AM
I can hardly wait!! - DizneyGirl  1491.3 #5 11:17AM
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  753.2 #12 4:04PM

Oh πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ just realized that post was 2+ years oldπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ well people are still taking turns very slowly. Maybe it's the app, not the players.  - DisneyMom13  467.2 #528 6:34PM

I thought it was just me. Lol. Someone needs to hit the refresh button. :) - DeadliestPassholder  448.5 #554 2:10PM
It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  11896.9 #9 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10878.6 #11 9:55PM
