    With the Magic Band, do I still need to check-in at a Disney resort counter or can I just go straight to my room?

    Hello Michael,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with such an important question!I am so excited to hear that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in just a few weeks. The check-in process has never been easier with the use of the My Disney Experience app on your smartphone or tablet device. This app allows you to keep all of your important vacation information all in one place. You can access your tickets, FastPass+ selections, dining and room reservations and all of your vacation plans.

    Once you have all of your information linked to your My Disney Experience account, you can begin the online check-in process prior to arrival. When you arrive at your Resort Hotel, you will visit the Online Check-in desk where you will receive your Welcome folder and other important information.Your MagicBand will not be linked to your room until it is ready. A Cast Member at the Online Check-In desk will give you that information when you arrive. Have a magical time!

    See ya real soon,
