    Thumbs up shortcut to tomorrowland

    Im sure some people know this already but for those who dont...once the park opens go straight down main st. but take the second to last right before the bridge that leads to tomorrowland. right in front of the big ice cream shop where they have tables outside to sit, go down there and through that fast food place called the pizza pavillion. cut throught there and you'll end up alongside where the old TIMEKEEPER attraction. with a little running or even jogging involved (which you cant do when u take the bridge because its too crowded), you'll beat everyone that took the bridge. if you walk, it will take just as long. i use this everytime i go to MK in the early morning.

    couldnt of been that shortcut....ive taken it since for 5 years now and ive had no problem with it. other people know about it too so its not like a major secret. it just allows you to "speed walk" instead of being stuck behide the crowd.

    Ice cream for breakfast? What sort of example are you setting, JC!

    Well, I'm usually not at the Magic Kingdom for the opening, that is a very nice shortcut to get to Space Mountain before others. Haha, yes, walking isn't really an option, and if you have kids with you of ANY age, walking will NOT happen
    My name is Emily and I am addicted to Walt Disney World. There, I said it and I'm proud.

    I will be at WDW every two weeks then... I can't wait!

    Yeah....but prior to rope drop you still have to wait.

    Annnnnnnd....when they do drop the rope please wait until the CM says to go. In June the "shortcut" people didn't wait.

    Personally....what's the rush...you're likely to get to anywhere in Tomorrowland a whole what 3 minutes before the other people?
