GOING to Disney is hugely exciting, and it stands to reason that you’d want to arrive at the parks as early as possible to get the most out of your trip.
In fact, Disney experts recommend it to get the most out of your visit.

But now one Disney super-fan has revealed why it isn’t always the best idea to get to the park before everyone else.
Tiktok user Courtney, who uses the handle @castles_and_kingdoms, explained that many visitors aim to get to the parks for the ‘rope drop’.
That means being there before the park opens so you can be among the first inside and get as many rides done as possible before the crowds arrive.
Some Disney parks are open from 9am until 9pm – giving those who arrive at the start of the day a possible 12 hours inside the park.
But Courtney revealed that while going to the rope drop a good tip for packing a lot in – if you will be exhausted or crabby, then it isn’t worth it.
She said: “Why I don’t think that everybody should rope drop at Disneyworld.
“A lot of travel agents will say that you should absolutely rope drop, hands down, no other way to do it.
“But it is not a necessity for every family and if you are not going to be happy getting up that early in the morning, if your family is not going to get along with each other, if it is going to make you stressed and miserable, it’s okay to stay late, it’s okay to show up at midday – it’s your vacation and what works for you.”
The video has been watched more than 2,000 times and viewers agreed with Courtney’s advice.
One person wrote: “I have teenagers that would be miserable getting up that early for five days in a row on vacation. We would rather stay late.”
Another commented: “You can still ride most of the rides without being there at rope drop.”
A third wrote: “I’m not a morning person so I’ve never rope dropped. I’ll shut the place down though.”
If you are a morning person and want to be in the park as early as possible, another former Disney employee has revealed how you can get into the parks before everyone else.
