    Hello, We did advance check in for the Wilderness Lodge but will be arriving at EPCOT prior to actually going to the hotel. Will we have to lay for parking or will our reservation already be activated on our magic bands? Thank you!

    Hi Michelle!

    I had a similar experience back in March.  I was so excited that I went straight from the airport to Epcot in a taxi!  

    When I arrived at the parking entrance, I explained the situation and they were waving me through. (obviously, it would depend on your cast member as to whether this would happen, but they will usually take a guest's word for it)  However, I wanted to find out if my information would show up on my Magic Band just in case someone (like you!) asked.

    So, I had the cast member check, and it was on there.  He scanned my band and could see that I was staying on property.  Easy peasy!

    I hope this helps.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
