    Mindy from MI Asked

    We are checking in on Saturday, August 27th. However, we arrive on the 26th and will be staying off site that evening. Can we use our magic bands to visit Magic Kingdom on Friday night?

    Hi Mindy,

    Your vacation is almost there... almost there... So let's stay on target! What resort are you staying at?

    When you book a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, the Theme Park Tickets and options like Disney Dining Plans, become available the moment you Check-In to your Resort hotel. This can be early in the morning, and you'll be able to start enjoying all the amenities offered right away, even if your room is not ready. If you booked a room-only reservation and purchased separate Theme Park Tickets, you can start using them any time you like.

    But did you know you may request the Theme Park Tickets part of a Magic Your Way Vacation Package up to three days in advance of your Check-In date? Simply visit Guest Relations at the entrance of any of the Theme Parks, or in Disney Springs, and they will make them available for you.

    One last tip: you can do early shopping with the Shop Disney Parks mobile app, and even have the goodies delivered to your Resort hotel as early as three days before arrival. See you real soon!
