    do we use the magic band for the ride from the airport to the resort

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Linda!

    When utilizing Disney's complementary Magical Express Bus Service from Orlando International Airport to your Walt Disney World® resort hotel, you will use your MagicBand, so make sure you have one ready. 

    When you arrive at the check-in kiosk, attending Cast Members will scan your MagicBand to confirm your Magical Express reservation, as well as your resort hotel reservation. From there, you'll be directed to the appropriate number with the line headed to your resort hotel. They'll scan your MagicBand one more time when you get to the head of the line and before sending you outside to the correct bus. 

    I usually keep everyone's MagicBands in my carry-on and we begin putting them on once we've landed, it's our "yay, we're here!" moment.

    Please let us know if you should have any additional questions.
