    We are going directly to the magic kingdom before checking into the yacht Club. We need to pick up our magic bands and I am wondering if we can pick them up at the park entrance or do we have to go the hotel?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Robert! Thanks so much for bringing your question to us. I cannot say that I blame you one bit for wanting to head directly to Magic Kingdom Park! I get so nervous and anxious as we travel to Walt Disney World Resort, and do not feel like I can relax until I can walk right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A.

    At this time, Guests cannot pick up MagicBands linked to their Resort hotel stay at theme park Guest Services. If you did not have your MagicBands shipped to your home, then you will need to stop by Disney's Yacht Club Resort before you can do that Main Street walk. It will really only take you a few minutes to complete this and then you are welcome to hop aboard the next Disney bus transportation to Magic Kingdom Park.

    While you are checking in, be sure to ask about Minnie Van transportation, which has expanded to include service at your Resort hotel. The Minnie Vans have to be the most adorable way to arrive for a magical day in the theme parks! The Concierge Cast Members can help you download the Lyft app and program the Minnie Van service as an option. I much prefer using it instead of driving my car to Magic Kingdom Park since the Minnie Vans can drop you off right by the park's entrance.

    Thanks again for stopping by, Robert. Please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your vacation!
