Does anyone know how early you have to arrive at MK to try and be the family to open MK? I would love to try and do this for my kids! :mickey:

I think I read somewhere that you really just had to be excited (showing it in your face/actions) about being there waiting for the countdown. If it's not emh morning then I'd plan to be there by an hour to hour half prior to opening. On emh mornings I don't think they do the countdown.

You can get there early, but there is no guarantee. The picking is totally random.

Our family arrived about an hour early (by mistake) one very cold January day and were picked to open the park. It was a great experience complete with certificates for all and magic wands for my daughters!

We arrived about 45 minutes early this past trip thinking we might have a chance. There were a ton of people already there and the family had already been picked.

WE took the first bus over in the morning from Port Orleans French Quarter! As I said it was freezing and we were running around to keep warm. A staff member approached us to invite us to be the opening family. We were thrilled!
