Has anyone ever seen the Welcome Greeting at either park? I'm talking about when the band comes out with Minnie & Mickey either in front of the castle at Disneyland or the mini stage area toward the right of the globe at DisneySea. Is it possible to watch this if you aren't a hotel guest? Also, is there a separate gate opening ceremony at DisneySea? If so, how early do you have to arrive at the gates before scheduled park opening on a weekday in June or July to see these? I also read that Tokyo Disneyland recently started opening the gates 30 minutes before scheduled park opening and having rope drop at the World Bazaar. Does that mean that the current Welcome Greeting is now a rope drop show in lieu of the the gate opening show?
