Plan Your Day

Set aside time before your trip to sit down and discuss what everyone wants to do. Make a general or detailed itinerary of what attractions you want to focus on when you arrive.

Arrive Early and Rope Drop

Arrive at the gates at least 45 minutes prior to the official park opening so you can get a good spot in line for rope drop! Cast members will let guests in 15-30 minutes prior to the official park opening and the entrances to the lands will be blocked off with ropes that will come down at the opening time. Being at the front of the rope ensures that you will literally walk right on to some favorite attractions. Swipe up to learn more!
