    Anna from DC Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    We are staying off site for the first 2 days of our trip and then checking into a Disney hotel can we use the magic bands that we order through the hotel for the first two days in the park, while we are staying elsewhere? Or will we need 2 bands each?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Anna! How exciting! You have a Walt Disney World Resort vacation in the works! Thanks so much for sending us your question.

    As long as you have your MagicBands in your possession, you can absolutely use them before you actually check in to your Disney Resort hotel. Just make sure that you have your theme park tickets linked to your My Disney Experience account, so that you can use the bands to enter the theme parks.

    Anna, you can go ahead and make your FastPass+ selections 60-days before you check in to your Disney Resort hotel. For the days you are staying off-site, you can still make selections 30-days before your visit!

    Dining reservations
    can be made up to 180 days before your magical vacation. Linking those reservations to your My Disney Experience account, will make it so easy. That way you will be able to have all of your plans in the same place! Downloading the My Disney Experience app to your smartphone before your visit is easy, and it will help you have all of your vacation information in the palm of your hand!

    I hope this information is helpful to you. Please feel free to come back to see us if you have any more planning questions. Helping you with the details of your next magical visit is our pleasure!
