Rope Drop or not?

I know that MK does a special show for the RD everyday but do any of the other parks also do an opening show? I have seen the opening show at DHS during SWW but I was not sure they did anything any other time of the year. Also what time can you start arriving at the TTC for RD at MK? haha I just realized I am using tons of the abbreviations. Im sure most people will know what I mean.

I think at one time they all had a rope drop show but they have since been dropped.

Only MK does a RD show.

You could arrive to TTC as early as you want to. But, I think that the ferry boat and the monorail that take you from the TTC to the MK will start operating about 60-90 minutes before the park opens (that's a guess, and I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong).

The otehr perka don't really have shows. They used to have a couple cast members come by to announce the opening (like some safari guys at AK), but I don't even know if they do that anymore. MK is the only one worth seeing, but it is VERY worth seeing IMO. I love it!

During Star Wars weekend HS sometimes has the storm troopers out interacting. Sometimes on other weekdays they are out with cameras interacting with people.

AK still has the safari Mickey launch I thought, but its underwhelming to say the least.

Never had anything at Epcot either for front or wsc other than a few interactive cm's.

Not Sure about the ferry but i believe the monorail is 1 hour prior to park opening, but it may only be the resort line not the express from TTC to MK, not sure. I know we have seen a part of the RD show while moving from the MK monorail station to the CR in order to go to Chef Mickey's for breakfast

The importance of RD is not the shows, it's access to way more attractions!

Why aren't there any other rope drop shows at different parks?
