    I was wondering that if my family has magic bands if I can also receive a card when I check in.

    Hey, hey Hannah and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. This is the place to come for the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, muppetational answers to help plan your enchanted Disney vacation to the place "where dreams come true."

    Even though you can use Online Check-In and may already have MagicBands linked to your My Disney Experience account, a stop by the front desk of your Disney Resort Hotel is always a good idea at the beginning of your stay. Typically, we head straight for our room and drop off our carry-on luggage as the rest of the luggage will be delivered by Disney's Magical Express and head to the theme parks with MagicBands strapped to our wrist. I stop by the front desk later to pick up a welcome packet. At the front desk, you can make sure your MagicBands are synced to your room so you may open your door, verify the PIN so you can charge merchandise and dining purchases, as well as, pick up a Resort hotel map, Recreation Calendar, and other bits of Disney magic. While there, you may request as many complimentary Room Key Cards as you need and pick up paper theme park Times Guides. Of course, all this information and more is found in the "practically perfect in every way "My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Disney Dad Tip: Did you know that you can unlock your Disney Resort hotel door with the Digital Key feature located in the My Disney Experience mobile app? Check it out at during your visit. Mickey really thinks of everything to make your Disney adventure more fun.

    Hannah, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
