    I have 2 separate reservations. We check in for a room only on 10/31 & then check in again on 11/1 for our package. We currently have 2 sets of magic bands. How can I tell which one to use for magical express on arrival day?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Becky!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation begins tomorrow!!!  Are you too excited to sleep??  I'm sure you would like to get all those last-minute details in place before your magical vacation begins.

    Guests with a stay at a Disney Resort Hotel are eligible to order complimentary solid-colored MagicBands or upgraded themed MagicBands at a discount.  Guests with more than one reservation may order MagicBands for each segment of their trip.

    No worries about which MagicBand to use, Becky!  A MagicBand is a convenient way to link to all the information in your My Disney Experience account.  It is not tied to a specific hotel stay or tickets.  You may use any and all MagicBands linked to your account interchangeably.  On a recent visit, my MagicBand was waiting for me at my Disney Resort Hotel's front desk at check-in, so I brought a band from a previous trip with me to check in at Disney's Magical Express at Orlando International Airport.  I often bring a few bands with me so I can select the style or color that suits my mood each day.

    You can use whichever MagicBand you like to check in at Disney's Magical Express, unlock your room door for each of your stays, for theme park admission and FastPass+ entry (with valid admission linked to your account), to link your Disney PhotoPass photos to your account, and to charge purchases to your resort hotel room folio.  So feel free to use the same band for both stays, or switch it up however you like!

    Have a wonderful vacation!
