    Hi if we arrive at Disney hotel early (before check in time) will we be able to get our magic bands and use the parks and dining plan prior to getting our room? Thanks

    Greetings Angela!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It is a pleasure to answer your first question.

    As an international Guest myself traveling from Brazil, many times we fly overnight and arrive very early in the morning, which means our room is usually not ready. However, you are most definitely welcome to stop by Front Desk, check in, get your MagicBands and go spend the rest of your day at the theme parks. Leave your luggage with Bell Services, and when you return in the evening simply collect your belongings and head for your room.

    You can check the My Disney Experience mobile app during the day to confirm your room number, this way you won’t have to stop by Front Desk anymore, since your MagicBand is also the key to your room. Your Disney Dining Plan entitlements can also be used after you check in with Front Desk.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Angela! Please stop by real soon if you have more questions, we are delighted to assist Guests with their Disney holidays!

    Best magical wishes,
