    if i do online check-in can i park at a park using my magic band the first day of our reservation if we haven't been to our resort to get our parking pass?

    Hello Dianna! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I frequently been in contact with Cast Members at Walt Disney World Resort in regard to the benefits of the Online Resort Check-In Service beyond expediting the Check-In process.

    The Online Resort Check-In Service not only allows you to save some valuable time when Checking-In to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, but the process is also supposed to activate anything else that is initiated by the Check-In process. This includes any Disney Dining Plans, Theme Park Admissions through a Magic Your Way Vacation Package and when using your MagicBand to scan for FastPass+ Selections, PhotoPass+ Photos and when parking at Theme Parks.

    While I have not yet been able to test this process for the parking benefit, I was made to understand that the Online Resort Check-In Service was designed to allow Guests to begin their Walt Disney World Resort vacation as early as possible on their Check-In date without waiting to Check-In to the Resort Hotel after 11am.

    If, for whatever reason, you cannot use your MagicBand for parking on that early morning of your Check-In date, I recommend that you keep your parking receipt to discuss the matter with a Cast Member at the Front Desk of your Resort Hotel when you do arrive.

    Have a Magical First Morning!
