    We are staying at AOA. What time can we check in to activate our bands? Also, we have an 8:35 breakfast at Cinderella's castle, what time should we plan on leaving the hotel if we are taking the disney bus trans. to MK? Thank you in advance!

    Hello and welcome to the Moms Panel!

    When you arrive on your date of check-in, you are more than welcome to head on over to the front desk in order to activate your Magic Bands.  Your room may not be ready, but Disney wants to make sure that their guests begin their vacation the moment they arrive.

    I would be at your resort's bus stop no later than 7:15 a.m. for your trip to the Magic Kingdom.  Buses run approximately every 20 minutes and you can expect a travel time of 10 to 15 minutes.  You will also want to allow at least a couple of minutes to enter into the park and head on over to Cinderella's Castle. By the way, you are going to love this dining experience! 

    Thank you so much for visiting the Moms Panel.  Please join us again real soon should any new questions or concerns pop-up.  We are always ready to offer our guests some great tips and advice.  May your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation be filled with many new and MAGICAL memories.  

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"~
