In 2009 we got to EPCOT over an hour before opening. There may have been 50 of us gathered there. Someone in green (The Mayor?) invited all of the early birds into the park and the gates were locked behind us. There was a short presentation (I'm partially deaf so I can't tell you what exactly was said) then we were led to the area beyond Innovations and were entertained by a high school marching band. Everyone was then lead into Soaring to ride! After the ride finished they invited anyone who would like to to remain for an additional ride. My DS was so excited and I was getting very dizzy, so I closed my eyes and made it through. Again they invited the crowd to remain. I looked at DS and said, I'll be waiting at the exit! He rode it 4 times in a row! When he exited the masses where just storming the place!

We've only missed rope drop once in all of my years going to Disney and that was because it was hailing and storming! We've had quite a few surprises by being there early. The family in front of us at MK was asked to join the opening ceremony one year.

I've always wanted to do a rope drop but my family are not really morning people so on this solo trip I wanna do as many as possible

What should I expect at the end of January as far as crowds at rope drop, I know it will be lower then our normal crowd levels through out the day(usual trips April-May)

Does anyone know, if the extra magical opening hour is at 8am, but the park officially opens at 9am, do they do a rope drop show again at 9am?
