8 - What is the Magic Kingdom Welcome Show? Magic Kingdom no longer offers the opening ceremony where guests were invited into the park by their favorite characters coming off the Walt Disney World Railroad. Instead, guests are welcome to enter the park one hour before it actually opens. Explore Main Street U.S.A. and head towards the Cinderella Castle where the opening ceremony, “Let the Magic Begin” is presented on the stage in front of the Castle. A Royal Herald invites you to join Mickey and friends as they open the park in a magical way. Once Mickey gives the go ahead, the park is officially open and guests are allowed to enter the rest of the park. When there are Extra Magic Hours, there will be cast members who will scan your MagicBands at the Hub area that will allow you to go into the park lands before non-resort guests.
