    Hi guys

    When the park is due to open at 9am, what time do they typically start letting guests in to the park? Is Manta open from the start (if I'm brave enough to try it)?

    For September, how long before the shows start would you aim to arrive at the theatres to get a good seat? Does this differ depending on the show? They've just released the schedule and I'm trying to plan in several shows :scratchin

    Thanks:goodvibes

    What I have seen when we arrive at opening is cars line up at booths to get in before 9 and they start letting the cars into parking lots at 9. I don't remember ever being let in earlier, but that may have changed.

    Oh really? So it's not even really a 9am opening given the time it takes to get through the parking booths, park and get to the entrance

    We have never been held at the toll booth until 9. We are usually through the toll booth, parked and at the turnstile in time to hear the anthem(which plays at 9am).

    hi claire bear

    We usually travel in September. You can usually park up about an hour before the posted opening time. Most times we have been they have let us throught the turnstyles about 15 minutes before opening time and you are held there until 9. Theres a little bakery that does some really yummy treats!
    As for the shows. We try to get there about 20 minutes before the show starts, but it really doesn't seem vital, especially in September. We just tend to sit down with a drink, look at photos we've taken during the day etc. Much more relaxed :cool1:

    have a great time!!
