Magic Kingdom Rope Drop

Hi all, have been going to Disney World for the past 20 years, but have never been there for when the parks open! Heading there this weekend, and want to do something new. So I'm just wondering, does the Magic Kingdom do the little "Rope Drop Show", everyday? Or just on certain days?

whilst we enjoyed the rd show, it was very busy -we felt extremely squashed-
so we won't be doing it again.

Others

have reported that the show can be presented in three lengths with one being very short. We always seem to hit the full version so I assume that is the most frequent.

It seemed like it was 15 minutes (there abouts) before opening when i went. We went during extra magic hours and it wasn't crowded at all! most people were jammed over by the entrances to get in and I had a clear view to film. I have a video if anyone wants to see it. It was about 7 minutes long I think. I liked it! I want to be the family that rides with Mickey to open the park!

So if we go to extra magic hour (park opens at 8 instead of 9)and we want to be there early to see the Rope Drop show...What time do we need to be there? 7:30?

That is about what time we got there I believe. I wanted to get there sooner but my other party was a bit slower. The show started, I believe, about 10-15 minutes later I think. It may have been quicker. I really don't remember too much. They let everyone in several minutes early, which was the case most days I got to the parks before opening. Only Magic Kingdom had a show while I was there. I heard Hollywood Studios does but not the day I was there at open.

The rope drop is done everyday. It is a nice experience if you have never had the chance to see or participate in. Similiar rope drops occur at each of the parks at opening.

Yes. Just make sure you get out before it goes back up or you'll be stuck in for the night. If you do make it out the exit, make sure to turn around or you'll miss it

It's a welcoming show with characters as the park opens in the morning. You can probably google videos of it, but here is a picture:
