Updated 5/22/2014

I thought might be helpful to track the schedule information for the upcoming Rock Your Disney Side 24 Magic Kingdom day.  The event will begin at 6:00am on Friday, May 23rd and the park will remain open until 6:00am on Friday, May 24th.  The theme for the event is Heroes vs Villains, but we don’t know yet how that will play out.  In the previous two iterations the event provided a special dance party in the hub and special character meet and greets after midnight, including Mickey and Minnie in their pajamas.  There is no special ticket required, just a regular park ticket.  Cast Members are blocked from using their gate privileges for the event but can use comp tickets.

Guests are encouraged to dress up as their favorite character, whether hero or villain, but don’t wear a mask that obstructs your vision.  I again remind you it will be really HOT and possibly could rain, so dress in something light and bring a poncho.

Costume guidelines provided by Disney:

  • Costumes should be child-friendly and adhere to any guidelines determined by Disney.
  • Costumes should not be obstructive, offensive or violent; drag on the ground; contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest; contain any weapons or objects which resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
  •  Masks may be worn, but they must not obstruct vision, and eyes must be visible at all times.
  • Guests who dress like Disney characters may not pose for pictures or sign autographs.
  • Guests who do not adhere to these guidelines may be refused admission.

Based on the previous two 24 hour experiences, I would foresee light crowds early in the event and massive crowds in the evening for the fireworks and parade.  It usually begins to clear out around 2:00am when the rides go through brief or early shut downs for routine maintenance that must be performed daily.

Here’s the entertainment schedule that was provided to me.  I will update this information as it’s sent along.  I haven’t received any information on any special character meet and greets or event specific activities yet.  I’ll update the post when I do.

Thx I tweeted and fb that earlier, but didn't post here

I just read on the Disboards about people camping out at the entrance to Disneyland and wondering if people do this at the Magic Kingdom as well?? We definitely WON'T be doing that, but just curious if you know if it happens or not!


Wednesday 21st of May 2014

No because they can't reach the entrance until 5:15am


Wednesday 21st of May 2014

We are really wanting to be there for the welcome show--how soon should we arrive? We are staying at Pop, and resort buses don't start running u ntil 5:15. I could drive, but ferries/monorail from the TTC don't start running until 5:15, so is there any benefit there? Really want to be there for opening! Thanks in advance.


Wednesday 21st of May 2014

Not really any benefit if you're staying on site. Everyone will gather in front of the Mickey Floral anyway.


Tuesday 20th of May 2014

I asked this before but what time would you anticipate characters like Merida or jasmine appearing? The usual 930 or earlier?


Wednesday 21st of May 2014

Regular times for those two. All character times that I know of are in the app
