    We'll be arriving early for our Disney vacation. I've pre-registered online, and our bands will be shipped soon. My question is, will we be able to go straight to a park before we complete check in at our hotel (i.e. All Star Movie Resort)?

    Hi Wayne,

    I love arriving early for my Walt Disney World vacation! I can relax at my resort, go shopping at Disney Springs or head to the parks!

    You can head straight to the parks if you have your MagicBands. There are only two reasons you could not. If you are taking Disney's Magical Express, you will head straight to your Walt Disney World Resort. You then have the choice to complete the check-in or head out to the parks.

    The other is if you have the Disney Dining Plan. If you do, you will want to go to your resort to activate your meals.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
