    Do we have to go to a certain Area when Entering Our first park with Our Magic bands?

    Hi Pamela,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! My family LOVES when our MagicBands arrive in the mail just before our trip!

    Once you arrive to a theme park, simply head towards the entrance. You will use your MagicBands to enter the park. Once you enter the park, you are all set! We usually arrive and head straight to a breakfast reservation and then after breakfast, we head to our first Fast Pass+

    I assume you have created a My Disney Experience Account, linked your theme park tickets and MagicBands. Do your best to make sure that your MagicBands are secure when wearing them. I lost a MagicBand on one trip but was able to get another one at our resort hotel. Also, be sure that you have downloaded the My Disney Experience Mobile App. We use the mobile app while in the parks to pick up additional Fast Pass+ selections and see wait times for attractions.

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, remember to have your MagicBand at all times. When we stayed at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort last summer, we had to use our MagicBands to access the pool areas. We also scan our MagicBands when dining - our servers deduct the requisite number of meal entitlements from our dining plan that is linked to our My Disney Experience account.

    Pamela, I am sending pixie dust your way trusting you will have a magical time!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
