    If we split our stay starting offsite for 3 days and them moving to AOA for 4 days and purchase 7 day park tickets, are we able to start visiting the parks even though we won't have checked in to AOA yet? Will our bands be active?

    Hi Karla, 

    Park tickets can be used at anytime, even before you check into your resort. Since you plan to visit the Parks before you arrive at your Disney resort, be sure to have your Magic Bands delivered to your home, so that you will have them before your arrival! Also, be sure to check your My Disney Experience account to make sure that your tickets have been linked and that the Magic Band you plan to use are active, if you choose not to use the ones that come with your Art of Animation reservation. 

    Tip: When purchasing multi-day tickets, they must all be used within 14 days. So, as long as you are visiting the parks for 7 consecutive days, you will be ok! 

    Happy Planning and thanks visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
