    Can you enjoy the park and eat lunch using your arm band while you wait for check in for your room

    Hi Belinda!
    Thanks for your question and for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    I like how you think....getting RIGHT to the Magic of the theme parks without delay!!
    The short answer is, yes, you can certainly head out to the parks to enjoy attractions and dine while you are waiting for your room to become available back at your Walt Disney World resort. As long as your MagicBands are active, you do not need to have been to your room before they become functional. If you wish to make certain that they are activated, you could do a quick check at Guest Services in the lobby of your hotel where you can also check your luggage before heading out for some fun. Your bags will be delivered to your room once you are back and ready.
    I hope this helps and I wish you all a Magical trip!!
