    Hi. I currently purchase the magic band+. Once I link it with my reservations, do I still need to go to the guest services to get a park card to initially enter the park on our 1st day visit?

    Hey there, hi there, Loiselle! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with such a great planning question.

    Loiselle, since you have already purchased your new MagicBand+, it sounds as if your planning is off to a fantastic start! I have always loved the hands-free convenience of my MagicBands, but I absolutely love how adorable and interactive the MagicBand+ is. It is just so fun and exciting to watch it light up and dance along with the nighttime spectaculars! Of course, the best and most convenient part of using MagicBand+ is how easy it is to use for theme park and Lightning Lane entry, so let's get to it!

    I think you will be happy to hear that if your MagicBand+ is now properly linked to your My Disney Experience account and your park tickets are also linked to your account, you can simply use your MagicBand+ to tap into the turnstiles at the theme parks, even on your very first day! There is no need to stop at Guest Relations or use an admission card. How cool is that?!

    One more thing before I let you go, Loiselle! Don't forget to make your Theme Park Pass reservations as soon as possible. These Park Pass reservations are required for every Guest to enter all four theme parks, so this is a planning step you definitely don't want to skip! Happy planning and happy tapping!

    I hope this was helpful, Loiselle, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable time on your upcoming vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have along the way.

    You've got a friend in me,
