Rope Drop has returned to the Magic Kingdom

Rope Drop has returned to the Magic Kingdom

Summer is here and with it comes summer crowds, while Disney is not operating at 100% capacity like Universal Orlando it still can get busy at Walt Disney World.

With all of the post-covid changes occurring at Walt Disney World one fan favorite has returned to Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and now the Magic Kingdom… Rope Drop!

You read that right, Rope Drop has returned to the Magic Kingdom! Guests who like to get up early and head to the parks before the scheduled opening time (like me) get to experience cooler temps and less crowds.

While the Magic Kingdom doesn’t officially open till 8am, Disney will allow guests into the park to get those stunning early morning photos, a cup of coffee from Starbucks, shop, and walk around and enjoy the magic of Main Street USA.

Guests are allowed up to Cinderella Castle before the scheduled 8am open time. Many people line up at the entrances to each land so they can make that mad dash to their favorite ride or attraction. I for one like to hang out in the hub and get stunning photos like this.
