    Hi! We drive into Orlando on Saturday morning, check in to the resort on Sunday. Is it possible to activate our tickets on Saturday or do we have to wait until Sunday? I just found out it was Star Wars Weekend, and we'd love to maximize that fun! Thanks!

    Hi there Rebecca,

    Sounds like you guys are in for an amazing weekend at the Walt Disney World Resort and how exciting is it that it just so happens to be a Star Wars Weekend at Disney's Hollywood Studios!?  

    This is the great thing about Magic Bands:  They make everything easy peasy!  You will be able to have your park tickets activated at the entrance to the park of your choice the day before your check-in, but you will need to have your photo ID available for security purposes.  You will be able to use your park admission immediately, but please note, your Disney Dining Plan entitlements (if applicable), will not be available on your Magic Band until after you complete the check in process.  You also will not be able to use your Magic Band for room charge until after you check in.

    Hope this helps and please feel free to drop another line if I can be of further assistance.

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
