Magic Kingdom Welcome Show to undergo changes

Magic Kingdom Welcome Show to undergo changes

With the Walt Disney World Railroad scheduled for a lengthy refurbishment, the Magic Kingdom will experiment with a new setup for the Magic Kingdom Welcome Show.Beginning January 9, 2017 the Magic Kingdom Welcome Show will move from the train station to Cinderella Castle stage.  In previous years the Welcome Show continued to be offered at the train station.

With this closure the park wants to experiment with a new procedure that allows guests to enter Main Street early and perhaps do some shopping before opening the Magic Kingdom attractions after the welcome.

“With more guests arriving early to the Magic Kingdom park, we are enhancing the morning arrival experience by opening Main Street USA earlier than the rest of the park.
Guest will be able to get a head start on their day they as enjoy the early morning charm of Main Street USA with photo opportunities, breakfast options and shopping before the park officially opens.  A new welcome show will debut at Cinderella Castle stage January 9.”

I'm not with anyone on this im against it. The Magic Kingdom welcome show should be at the park entrance now that the trains are up and running. The locomotive Lilly Belle is back up and running after so many years. She's the one who pulls the train full of Disney characters to Main Street station. Plus you could be selected to help Mickey open the park. I bet that's not offered on the castle stage welcome show.

I'm concerned about how early to get to TTC from Bonnet Creek to then take ferry or monorail to,gate for an 8:10 breakfast. I'm thinking leave resort by 6:30 or 6:45 and hopefully be a gate by 7:45 at latest for bag check then straight to Crystal Palace. Then alow 45-60mins to eat and be to Peter Pan by 9:15 . This is so stressful! Help please!

if you get to Peter Pan at 9:15, you'll find a long wait

Did you get in before the crowd? I can't find anything that says how this is being handled.
