Families are eager to get back into the swing of things as summer is here and many are trying to make up for the loss of vacations due to the ongoing pandemic. With that being said, summer crowds have officially arrived at Walt Disney World as the theme parks — Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom — are welcoming large crowds these last few weeks.

And with the large crowds, and an increase in capacity at Disney World, pre-pandemic rope drop has officially returned to the theme parks.

Shelly Barger of Magic Pass Travel Co. shared a photo (below) of what the rope drop crowds looked like this morning at Magic Kingdom and it’s safe to say that the pre-pandemic procedure is back in full force.

Shelly explained that she and her family arrived at Magic Kingdom before the parking lot even opened and once they were let inside, these were the crowds to start the day. This photo was taken in the Tomorrowland area near Comic Ray’s Starlight Café.
