Start the Day in a Memorable Way

Kick off your Magic Kingdom adventures with a most royal greeting, each and every morning!

Just prior to park opening, you’re invited to make way through Main Street, U.S.A. and down to the front of Cinderella Castle. Soon, the sound of a trumpet fanfare will burst through the morning air, signaling the arrival of a very important procession, a.k.a. the Royal Herald.

As the Royal Herald unfurls a scroll of proclamation, feel a rush of excitement as you’re welcomed to Magic Kingdom park. Then, join your fellow Guests as you’re greeted by the most important Guest of all—Mickey Mouse—along with a special Disney surprise you’ll have to experience in person to believe!
