    we are staying off Disney for the 1st 5 days and then at Animal Kingdom lodge for the last 5 days. We are buying 10 day hoppers. can we use same band that we get from AK for whole time? How do we do this?

    Hey Susan-

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so glad you asked this very mysterious question. May you use your pre-shipped resort MagicBand before you check in to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel? Drumroll … Yes, you absolutely may use your MagicBand before you check-in. Just link your 10-day Park Hopper Option base ticket to your Disney account in My Disney Experience and your Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge MagicBand is good to go for the whole trip. When your hotel check-in day arrives a Cast Member will ask you for your MagicBand to link up room keys and a credit card for charging food, souvenirs and incidentals. Credit card usage through MagicBands is only a benefit of Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests during their stay. Personally, I love MagicBands because they keep the clutter and hassle of so many tickets and cards in one place as well as quick ways to link your PhotoPass photos and videos. All this on your wrist.

    I hope you have a great time in November. If you have time to visit Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party I highly recommend it. It's during select nights in November and December and is a holiday party not to forget. The cookies and hot chocolate are phenomenal and it snows on Main Street, USA!

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
