    We are arriving in Orlando on July first and are not supposed to check into Pop-Century until 3:00. But we want to go to Magic Kingdom that morning. If we already have our magic bands, can we go straight to the park or do we need to activate them first?

    Hi Amanda! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Thank you for visiting us once again!

    If your MagicBands are already connected to your My Disney Experience account and if your tickets are also connected to the accounts of those who will be using them, you will be good to hit the Theme Parks!

    My husband and I love to use the My Disney Experience App to check if the tickets are connected to the right people and to make sure that every little detail is in place for a magical vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I'm also happy to tell you that you can take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours in the morning of your arrival day as long as your reservation is also connected to your My Disney Experience account and you use the online check-in feature. How awesome is that?

    I hope this information helps you enjoy your stay at Disney's Pop Century Resort, Amanda! If more questions pop up before your incredible trip is here, please, come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We will be here waiting for your next questions!

    May the magic be with you,
