    We will be visiting for the first time June 18-22. Will my magic bands be good on Friday, even though we are only doing a 4 day park pass. Want to make sure for eating purposes. Also, what kind of locks are on the inside of the resort doors.

    Hi, Jeffrey! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for bringing your question to us! Your trip is so close, I bet you are already finding pixie dust all around you! There are lots of things to think about in these final week - FastPass+ selections, making sure your Advance Dining Reservations are in order, and even customizing your MagicBands. If you have any questions about these final plans, please feel free to stop by and we will help you get those little bits of magic settled and ready for your arrival.

    MagicBands are my favorite piece of the MyMagic+ puzzle. These handy little devices can not only open your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room door, but they can also connect you to your theme park tickets, FastPass+ selections, and a stored payment source. Your MagicBand will be linked to that payment source from your arrival day through midnight on the day you check out of your resort room, allowing you to make last minute souvenir and meal purchases. Since we always head to the theme parks before flying back home, I appreciate this ability to still use my MagicBand so I do not have to carry my purse around the parks.

    I mentioned earlier how you can use your MagicBand to enter your resort room. An amazing new feature in your My Disney Experience account also gives you the ability to use your mobile phone to unlock your resort room door. Once in your room, you will find a couple of ways to secure your door. Most rooms have a turn-lock style deadbolt and swing latch, much like those found in other hotel rooms.

    Thanks again for stopping by with your questions, Jeffrey!
