    We will be making our 3rd trip in March, but the first time using magic bands. Since we'll be receiving the bands in the mail before hand, can we just go straight into the park or do we need to check in to our resort first? We will be driving down. Thanks!

    Hi Caryn,

    If you've linked your park tickets to your My Disney Experience account and have your MagicBands in hand, then you can go directly to the park. However, you should know that not all of your MagicBand functions will be available until you check in. Before check-in, you can use the Bands for park admission and to retrieve your FastPass+ selections. You will not be able to use Disney Dining Plan credits or charge food/merchandise to your hotel room until after you've officially checked in. 

    Please let us know if you have additional questions. We're happy to help.
