    Can we use our magic bands to enter the park before we have checked into our hotel? And can we leave our luggage at the hotel until check in time?

    Hi Michealle,

    No worries! MagicBands make travel super easy. Once you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort, you'll have a hassle-free experience. You can swing by your resort, ask Bell Services to hold your luggage, and then head right to the parks! You'll be walking down Main Street, U.S.A. before you know it!

    Even better: If you are using Disney's Magical Express to travel from Orlando International Airport to your Walt Disney World Resort, you can simply tag your luggage at your home airport and have it magically appear in your resort room later that day. You can skip baggage claim and kick off your vacation right away. Now that's easy!

    That's not all. If you've checked in online, you can receive a text when your room is ready. No need to formally "check-in". Just head right to your room when you're ready and use your MagicBand or mobile phone as your room key.

    Hope you have a wonderful time planning your trip. Be sure to let the Moms Panel know if we can help with any additional planning details!
