    We have a rental car to drive from the airport to WDW. Can we go straight to the parks with our Magic Bands or do we have to check-in to the resort first to activate the ticket portion of our MagicBand?

    Hi Rebecca!

          Wow, that is awesome that you are going to get to use Magic Bands on your next Walt Disney World vacation!  In order customize and receive your Magic Bands there has to be a ticket or a Walt Disney World Resort reservation attached to them so your Magic Your Way Tickets should already be linked to your Magic Bands if you purchased a vacation package. If you haven't linked your Magic Your Way Tickets, then you can log on to My Disney Experience and add your Magic Your Way Tickets. You should not have to activate the Magic Bands when you get to Walt Disney World because they are already activated and are linked to your Magic Your Way Tickets so you should be able to head straight to the parks without checking into your Walt Disney World Resort! You can also use your Magic Bands to get on Magical Express as well.

    I hope that your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation is made extra magical by having Magic Bands!

    Keep Dreaming BIg!
