Upon entering the park and getting the first views of Main Street, the area in front of the train station was relatively empty:
Our rope drop position in front of the castle was really good:
At rope drop, we raced over to the updated Snow White’s Enchanted Wish, then Pinocchio’s Daring Journey, Mr. Toads Wild Ride, King Arthur’s Carrousel, Dumbo, Casey Junior Circus Train, Mad Tea Party and the Story Book Canal Boats all in the first hour of the park being open. We took a short break and headed for it’s a small world.
Overall, we had a great morning in the park. Other rides we went on were the Gadget’s Go Coaster, Roger Rabbit Car Toon Spin and Buzz Lightyear Astro Blaster.
If you’re ready to start exploring a Walt Disney World or Disneyland family vacation, I recommend checking out Undercover Tourist for your ticket options. I’ve already used them twice, once at Disneyland and once at Disney World and will plan to continue comparing their prices with other sites, however I usually come back to UT because they have the best deals and their instructions make it easy to add your tickets to the Disney apps.
