    I read two conflicting answers here about magic band usage upon arrival. If I do online check in prior to our arrival and have activated magic bands with all of my dining and fast passes linked to it can't I enter a park prior to the hotel?

    Hello Lynn!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I hope you are having a magical week.

    Your Walt Disney World Resort Park Tickets, FastPass+ and dining reservations are separate from your Disney World Resort Hotel reservations, even though they are all linked on the one MagicBand. You may enter the parks prior to checking in or visiting your hotel. If you have multi-day tickets, you will have 13 days after the initial entrance into the parks to use the remaining days purchased.

    I hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your visit!

    See you real soon!
