20 Things You Might Have Missed at Magic Kingdom at Disney World

2 - Opening Ceremonies - "Let the Magic Begin"

In January 2017 a brand new opening show debuted. "Let the Magic Begin," opens the park 5 minutes before the posted opening time. A Royal Herald invites you to join Mickey and friends as they open the park in a magical way. This stage show takes place at the Castle Forecourt Stage. While it does not have the same charm as the Welcome Show that took place at the park gate, it's still sets the tone for a special day at Magic Kingdom.
