    Hello! I am trying to figure out the day of check-in (All-Star Sports) can I go straight to the park and show my magic band to park for free or do I have to go to the hotel first. I would really like to skip going to the hotel and just get to the fun!

    Hi Alyssa! Thanks for stopping by with your question. 
    I have good news. Yes! You can go directly to a theme park on your day of arrival even before going to your Disney Resort Hotel first. Just make sure you have your MagicBands and your Disney theme park tickets linked to your account on My Disney Experience. If you prefer, you can also check-in online before your arrival. If you decide to do it, you will have the option to be notified via text message when your Disney Resort hotel room is ready, which I think is very convenient. Get ready to have lots of fun!
    Let us know if you have further questions.
    Have a magical day!

I am totally a Disney maniac! Since childhood, I have been a big fan of all things Disney, especially the theme parks. I have never visited any other place that gives me the same feeling that I get at the Walt Disney World Resort. You can become a child again there! With so much to explore, I would love to help you plan your next Walt Disney World vacation and discover all the fantasy and magic this special place has to offer. Learn More About Gina
