    Hi! On our upcoming visit, I will be checking in online. If I don't have to go to the front desk upon check in to receive a parking pass, do I use my magic band to go through the gate to get into the parks without having to pay the parking fee.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jane! 

    That is correct! Once you arrive, your MagicBand will be activated and ready to be your Key to the Kingdom. When you pull up to the parking attendant, just have it on you and you’ll be good to go! It's just one of the many benefits of staying right inside the magic.

    Jane, make sure you set up your mobile number on the Messages During Your Vacation portion of the online check-in. If there is anything that puts a huge Mickey-sized smile on my face is receiving that magical text message that my Walt Disney World Resort hotel room is ready! 

    I hope you have an unforgettable visit to the place where the magic is endless! As you continue preparing, dreaming up, and planning your visit, don’t hesitate to come by and bring us any questions. It’s our pleasure to assist you with your pixie-dusted planning efforts. 

    See ya real soon,
