    We are staying at the Animal Kingdom for our first night then move to Shades Of Green...we have wrist bands, will they work once we move away from a Disney Hotel!

    Hello Anna,

    Welcome and thank you for your question! Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is a wonderful way to begin your magical adventure. It's such a beautiful Resort and it's easy to forget it's right at Walt Disney World!

    You may still use your MagicBands for theme park and water park entrance (with valid admission), to check in at FastPass+ entrances and to connect Disney PhotoPass images to your account even after checking out of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    What you won't be able to do after check-out is make purchases using your MagicBand or unlock the door of your hotel room.

    I think once you start using your MagicBand, you won't want to stop! It really is convenient and pretty fun too, if you ask me.

    Wishing you a magical vacation, Anna. Please let us know if you have any other questions as you plan!

    Andrea U.
