    when you arrive onto Disney property are you able to use the dinning plan via the magic bands right away or will you need to check into your hotel before the dining credits are applied?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Holly. Thank you for your question.

    You may enter the parks using your MagicBand without checking in to your Disney Resort hotel. However, in order to enable charging privileges, including use of the Disney Dining Plan, you will need to stop by your hotel first to activate this feature.

    If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and visit us. Enjoy your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Happy planning,
