    I have received our wristbands, do we need to do anything such as link them to our account? Also, how early can we do the online check-in and is there a way to request adjoining rooms?

    Hi Carolyn! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Having already received your MagicBands can only mean one thing ... you are going to the Walt Disney World Resort soon! Hooray!

    Since it sounds like you have your Disney Resort hotel room booked and linked to your My Disney Experience account (along with all Guests that are staying on the reservation with you), your MagicBands should be good to go! For each Walt Disney World Resort vacation my family has enjoyed, our MagicBands were auto-magically linked to our accounts. If you would like to double check, simply click on "My MagicBands and Cards" when logged into your My Disney Experience account. This should bring up all tickets and MagicBands linked to you, as well as to the other Guests you are planning for.

    You are very close to your vacation, so you can utilize Online Check-In now! My favorite feature of Online Check-In is the ability to enter my mobile phone number and get our room number texted to my phone before we arrive. Then we skip the Front Desk, go straight to our room, and use our MagicBands to unlock our door. This is especially appreciated after a long day of travel with little ones!

    To request adjoining rooms, you will need to call Disney directly. You can find the phone number for your specific Disney Resort hotel by visiting the "Overview" page of your resort on the website, or call (407) 939-1936. Requests are not guaranteed, but they will try their best to make it happen for you!

    I hope all of this helps with your last-minute planning, Carolyn! Have a wonderful visit!
