    We will be driving our own vehicle to WDW and will arrive before our resort check-in time. Are we able to go straight to a park if we utilize the Online Check-in or do we need to go to the hotel first to get our parking pass?

    Hi Jamie, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question. 

    If you’ve used Online Check-In and you have your MagicBands with you when you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort, I’m happy to say that you can absolutely head straight to the Theme Park of your choice and enjoy complimentary standard self-parking right away, without having to stop at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel first. 

    Just tell the Cast Member at the entrance plaza where you’re staying, have them scan your MagicBand and you should be good to go. I’d recommend having a copy of your Resort confirmation email on hand (either a printout or in your phone), just in case there is a technological issue the day that you arrive. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan your upcoming vacation. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
