    We are come to Disney in Jan. we check in to Disney's resort on a Monday but we want to go in the parks on Sunday can we use our magic bands to get in the parks before we check in the resort

    Hi Lloyd, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question. 

    I have some great news for you! You can absolutely use any Theme Park Tickets associated with your Disney Resort Hotel Vacation Package before you actually check in to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel. 

    One important thing to note, however, is that you won’t typically be able to make any FastPass+ selections for days prior to your check in. From what I also understand, you would need to visit the Lobby Concierge of the Walt Disney World Resort hotel that you’ll be visiting to make sure that your Theme Park Tickets are active. And don’t forget that any admission entitlements that you use prior to your check-in date won’t be available to use near the end of your visit, even if you’re still staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan your upcoming vacation. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any more questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
