    We are planning on going right to MK from the airport. I have received different answers about whether our magic bands will be ready to use- I was told we must go to the resort first but read here that they are ready to go?

    Hi Heather ~

    I like the way you think! When we drove down for the Princess Half in February, we had already done online check-in. We were so excited to get started with the action that we by-passed our resort and went straight to Disney's Hollywood Studios for a spin on Rock 'n' Roller Coaster. When we had done everything we wanted, we went to our resort.

    I will admit I was a little nervous about heading to the park first but everything went very smooth and our Disney FastPass+ service selections helped us cover a lot of ground in a short time. If you have your tickets linked to your My Disney Experience and customized your MagicBands, think of it as having your tickets in hand (or wrist in this case) so you should be good to go.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions. We will be hEAR for you up until you embark on your pixie dusted trail!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
