    Hello all! First post. Just beginning the process of planning for a trip to Disney in a year to year and a half. Excited but not looking forward to all the planning required. One post / day at a time i guess :)

    Does anyone know if there is a rope drop at all of the disneyworld parks? I know there is one a MK. But we are trying to plan out our stuff and i have heard there are ones at HS, AK, and Epcot, but then I have also heard there are not. For anyone who has ever been can you help me out. If there are drops for these parks are they worth waking up early to be there. I know with HS we will be arriving early so we can sign my son up for jedi training. just looking for any friendly tips!!!! :cheer2:

    Yes, there are rope drops at all of the parks, except going back way into World showcase at Epcot usually, well they do actually have a rope drop up at the main part where you get to main sidewalk after friendship boat area. DHS has a cute show with Hollywood opening, AKL and Epcot just do some music and a countdown etc. MK is most elaborate with train and characters. To see all of show it is best to try and arrive 10 minutes early on non crowded days, maybe 20 or more on peak days.

    According to this post, only MK has a show anymore:

    And I would be very surprised to find out that Robo is wrong about anything related to Disney. ;)

    Don't know what to tell you about that poster, but I live in Windermere, FL which is maybe 2- miles away from MK and I go to WDW 3-4 times a week, since my job is a Disney Specialist TA. There are ropes drops, the degree to which you could call AK and Epcot a "show" really is open to the individual, there is a little music and a countdown, but I would call DHS with the Hollywood production and MK train with the characters a show for sure.
    In full disclosure I did not go to WDW yesterday, I was in Tampa doing a ship inspection but I was in WDW multiple times other days last week and there were rope drops. Not every day when it is slow sometimes you have to wait outside gates, but that has always been my experience at WDW for years.

    I know I am a little excessive about visiting WDW, but I love it like many here and just speaking of my personal experience at the parks:)

    I love this board! We are planning a trip in July. I know it will be hot and crowded but that's okay. Our last trip has been 6 years ago and I am excited to see all the changes!

    Here is your original thread: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3099931 which was posted on the correct board. You probably won't get an answer posting it anywhere other than the Creative DISigns board. It looks like there have been no responses to your original question so it may be that no one over there knows. You might try bumping that thread up and see if anyone has any ideas for you.
