    I'm planning on arriving early in the morning to go to Magic Kingdom. Will my magic bands work before I check into my hotel? Thank you for your assistance!!

    Hey there, Sybil! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for stopping by and bringing us your question.

    Sybil, I know the feeling of wanting to hit the ground running as soon as you arrive! You don’t want to miss a minute of the magic. Well, I have great news for you! Your MagicBands will arrive ready to be used, so as soon as you get to the most magical place on earth, please do head on over to Magic Kingdom and enjoy an enchanted day filled with pixie dust and so much fun!

    If you have any luggage with you when you arrive, you can make a pit stop at your hotel, check them in with bell services and they will hold them for you until your room is ready. I would suggest doing online check-in as well so once you get back, you can head straight to your room and relax for the rest of the night. When you stay at one of the magnificent Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, the magic begins as soon as you arrive. There are so many benefits to choosing to stay on property, but my favorite is getting to enjoy my vacation from the moment I arrive without having to worry about any details because Disney will take care of everything!

    Sybil, be sure to stop by and say hello to the boss, Mr. Mickey Mouse himself when you visit Magic Kingdom. You’ll be amazed at the special magic he has up his sleeve. And a photo-op with Mickey is a must to commemorate your visit!

    Have a magical day. Hope to see you again real soon!
