    If we plan to go to the parks on our first day, but before check-in time, will our magic bands work? What about parking and EMH?

    Hello Brandon,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! If you have completed Online Check-In, provided your credit card information, received a "Direct to Room" email, and have everything linked to your My Disney Experience account, then you should be able to enjoy the Theme Parks as soon as you like on the day of your arrival. 

    If you do not receive an email ahead of time, then you can call (407) 939-3463 to make sure they have all of the information needed so that everything is activated. You can also go to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel prior to the 3:00 P.M. check-in time on the day of your arrival to be sure they have all of the necessary information.

    Please stop back by should you have any additional vacation planning questions!

    Magical Wishes,
