Cinderella Castle

Watch the Sun Rise in Magic Kingdom

On May 1st, known as May Day all around the world, Disney World will live stream the sunrise over Magic Kingdom and Cinderella Castle!

May Day is a public holiday traditionally celebrated in the ancient northern hemisphere. It is largely recognized as the beginning of spring, and there’s often lots of dancing and singing. There is also normally a May Pole that is wrapped with ribbons. Flowers and cake are also important parts of the festivals. In fact, the holiday is known as Lei Day in Hawaii.

Watch the sunrise over Magic Kingdom on May 1st at 6am!

The live stream will start just before 6am, when sunrise will take place. You can’t get into the park that early, so this is a very special online-only event! Check in at the Disney Parks Blog from the comfort of your own home for what Disney is calling the official welcome to spring! I can’t guarantee that you’ll have the same weather (64 degrees at sunrise and 84 later in the day), but I can promise that you’ll have a beautiful view from wherever you are (providing that you have an internet connection!).
