Train Welcome Show Being Replaced at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park

Currently, Magic Kingdom welcome’s guests each morning with a special show right inside the entry before you cross under the walk-through at the Walt Disney Railroad train station.  This show includes performers that sing and dance, appearances by favorite characters, a welcome to the park by Mickey Mouse himself and even a little bit of fireworks to start the day.

Starting January 9th, this will all be changing.  Guests will be allowed to enter the park ahead of the usual opening time in order to walk down Main Street USA to the front of Cinderella’s Castle.  When it is time for the park to open, a proclamation will be delivered along with appearances by characters to officially open the park for the day and kick off all of the magic and fun.  We haven’t heard complete details on this change, but hopefully this will be exciting for guests.  We all get a little apprehensive when favorite magical moments like the welcome show receive changes, but this should improve the opening of the park logistically.  We will keep you posted as we learn more.
