    I am doing a split stay. I have 2 sets of bands and 2 different meal plans. I only purchased tickets with my first stay hoping to use 2 tickets I will have left over for my second stay. How will this work if I am using a new band for he 2nd stay?

    Hey, Ashlee and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. A split stay with a double Disney Resort Hotel Package Plus Dining is "practically perfect in every way" and you get to check off two Disney Parks Hotels from your list. Wahoo!

    Theme Park tickets have a use range. For example, if you purchased a 5-Day One Park per Day Base Ticket for your arrival on July, 28, 2019, you would have until August 4, 2019, to use all the days. Also these days do not need to be consecutive. All tickets linked to your My Disney Experience account will work with every "Active" MagicBand also linked to your account. So, as long as both MagicBands are "active" you can use the tickets in use range.

    When you check in to your second Resort hotel you will need to go to the front desk to make sure the MagicBand you want to use will have access to open your room door. We have had no issues using older MagicBands for theme park entrance but have needed to stop at the front desk to make sure they can open the doors. There is also a feature on the My Disney Experience mobile app to help open your Resort hotel door. Super cool.

    Disney Dad Tip: The My Disney Experience mobile app is my favorite planning tool for a pixie-dusted Disney vacation. With access to Disney PhotoPass photos, dining reservations, wait times, interactive maps, shopping and more, this app is Mickey's greatest creation. Want to save time in food lines? Many Quick-Service restaurants participate in Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering. It is amazing!

    Ashlee, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
