    Hi, when we arrive at the Disney parks for the first time, where do I hand over our booking confirmation to? Is this before we get into the park? Thank you

    Hi Lauren,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted that you brought this question to us!

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel and flying into Orlando's International Airport, I suggest that you catch Disney's Magical Express Transportation to your resort hotel first. If your MagicBands are not shipped to you prior to your trip, you will receive them when you check into your resort hotel. Just be sure to have your resort confirmation number with you when you arrive to the Disney's Magical Express Transportation area.

    A Disney's Magical Express motorcoach will take you to your resort hotel but be advised that the bus make stop at other resorts along the way. When you check into the hotel, you will provide your booking information. After you have checked in and received your MagicBands, you can explore the resort or head out to a theme park. If you head to a park, just be sure that you have planned according to the number of days you have park tickets. 

    On a few occasions, we have arrived before our room was ready. We typically leave our bags at the bell desk and go to lunch until we receive a text notification that our room is ready. On our arrival day, I typically like to unpack and just spend the remainder of the day at the resort hotel. Arrival day is also a great pool day.

    Lauren, I am sending pixie dust your way hoping your adventure is absolutely magical!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
