WALT DISNEY WORLD MORNING ROPE DROP

What is Rope Drop at Disney?

Walt Disney World guests who consider themselves early risers might want to take advantage of what's commonly known as "rope drop" at the theme parks. Rope drop is more of a term describing the official park opening as there is not typically an actual rope involved. Often times, there are much fewer guests in the parks early in the morning compared to what you'll find during the day. A lot of folks like to get up early and take advantage of the lower wait times that could be available depending on how many people enter a particular park on any given day. As popular as it is to arrive early, we find that more folks like to sleep in on their Disney vacations, especially if they were out until the wee hours the night before.

Here are a couple of things we recommend:

  • Arrive at your theme park of choice approximately half an hour before the park is set to open that day. Each of the four main theme parks do something different at rope drop. Some do a little show, some do an opening performance, some don't do anything at all, but everything is subject to change at any time, so the surprise element is there too.
  • Have a good idea of where you want to go and which attractions you want to ride right away. It's a good idea to take advantage of booking some Lightning Lanes if you plan to use Disney Genie+, but also to allow time to utilize the shorter lines in the earlier hours of the morning.
