Magic Kingdom opened at 8:00 am on Saturday morning. The crowd level was expected to be a 10 that day so I knew we needed to get here early. Plus the opening show is really good. So we arrived about 7:40. We had a reservation at Chef Mickey's at 10:45 so I thought we could ride a couple of things before heading over there. We got so much done in this two hours. The park felt practically empty. We walked on all the rides we rode this morning.
This is a picture of some of the progress on the new fantasyland expansion. This is the top of what will be the Beast's Castle and have the new Be Our Guest restaurant. I cannot wait to eat there!
Look how empty our walk to Frontierland was. This would be vastly different in just a few hours.
