    ? Other mom Q received A stating- as long as you buy park tickets and link to reservation, can use Magic Bands prior to resort check in. Our family resort package includes 7 day park tickets, so why do we need to buy tickets to link to Bands?

    Hi, Debbie!

    I do not know what question/answer you saw, but hopefully I can clarify the ticket and MagicBand situation!

    If a guest books a "room only" reservation, they will probably want to buy park tickets and link them onto their My Disney Experience account allowing them to book FastPass+ and enter the parks.

    It sounds like you booked a package that includes your theme park tickets, so you are all set! You just booked all your extras all at once, where other guests put their vacations together in separate parts. 

    Either way, if you have done your online check-in and have your MagicBands, you are welcome to use those MagicBands prior to check-in. You can head straight to the parks and begin your magical vacation as soon as you arrive.

    So snap on that MagicBand with your 7 day park tickets linked, and go have some fun (and don't forget a wonderful break with a Mickey Ice Cream bar!)
