    Hi. I am going to be checking into Polynesian for Nov 5:6,7. It’s my first visit. Magic bands confirmed to be at hotel. I reserved my theme parks. We are three adults , 4 yr old and a baby under 1. What else do I need to do or is that it?

    Hi Tammy! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    I'm so excited for your first visit to Walt Disney World! Even better yet, you're staying at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort! This seems like a dream vacation in the making. Based on the information you provided, you are already well ahead for your arrival next week. You've taken care of the bulk of the planning, but let's discuss a few more options you have before you arrive.

    The first thing to do if you haven't done so already is to download the My Disney Experience App to your mobile device. Once you sign into your My Disney Experience account, this tool will be a great assistance during your time at Walt Disney World. You can use it for practically anything you need, including making and modifying many different types of reservations. 

    You seem to be all set for everything you need at the parks, You've purchased your ticket package, made theme park reservations, and have your MagicBands waiting for your arrival. Since they were preordered, they will already be linked to your account. One thing to consider each day of your trip is if you want to purchase Disney Genie+. This service allows you to bypass the standby queue at select attractions at each of the parks. To use it, open the My Disney Experience App the morning of your park day and tap on the purple bar that reads "Disney Genie+ Service." Follow the prompts to select the park you are visiting that day, or the Multiple Parks option if you plan to Park Hop on this day. You'll then use the app to make your selections throughout the day.

    If you plan to eat at any table service dining location, you can make Advanced Dining Reservations beginning 60 days before your arrival. With your visit only days away, you still have time to snag any available reservations for your stay. The selection may be a bit limited, but with Guests modifying their plans quite often leading up to their stay, there is a good chance you'll still be able to find what you want. You can easily search through open reservations using the My Disney Experience App. 

    Tammy, you have chosen an amazing resort to stay at for your first visit! Disney's Polynesian Village Resort has everything you can imagine, including delicious dining, incredible theming, and world-class amenities! Plus, it's only a monorail ride away from the Magic Kingdom Park or EPCOT.

    Have a magical day! See ya real soon!
