    We will be arriving before the 3pm check in time and have already began the online check in. At what time will out magic bands with our park tickets be active? Will we have to wait until 3pm to use our park passes?

    Hello Sherry,

    Thanks so much for writing to us!  Your MagicBands will be ready to use for park admission and FastPass + when you arrive at Walt Disney World.  There is no need to wait for your Walt Disney World Resort room to be ready.  In fact, if you have completed online check-in, you can skip the front desk and head directly to the park of your choice.   You can be notified via a text message alert when your resort room is ready.  You will be sent the room number and can then directly there whenever you are ready!

    Have a magical vacation!
