Frozen Princesses Freeze Magic Kingdom Rope Drop

Every time I see this line at the Magic Kingdom I’m thankful that we only have a son so we can walk right past Princess Fairy Tale Hall. While at the Magic Kingdom last week we noticed a new rope drop procedure. Cast members are now walking with ropes in front of the crowd to keep the mad rush in control all the way to Princess Fairy Tale Hall.

Since Anna and Elsa from Frozen have moved from Epcot’s Norway Pavilion the Magic Kingdom rope drop has been the starting line for a lot of sprinting Mothers and Fathers. I can understand this as the standard wait times are 4 to 5 hours within 30 minutes of park open.

With the new procedure also comes another big change, you can no longer enter the line and hold a place for your family. The entire party must be with you when you enter the line as no one will be allowed to join a family member already in the line. If you are found doing this you will be asked to join the new party at the back of the line.

Luckily the Princess Fairy Tale hall is equipped with FastPass+ so the best way to meet Anna and Elsa is with a FastPass. But be sure to watch your FastPass window as these are usually gone the day you are able to book them.

Here is a quick look at the new procedure – you will hear people saying get up on the sidewalk as they tried to go around the rope without success.

  • That is insane. So can’t you walk up through the shops anymore either?

    • You have to wait till the rope is in the hub area as people were trying to get around the rope by going through the shops. Crazy I know.

      • I just can’t believe the insanity. I love Disney and the characters as much as the next guy, but I’m not that obsessed that I have to rush or stand in a 4-hour line. 🙂 Ashley and I have a tour scheduled for Monday morning – I hope we can get to our destination in time without being trampled!
