I can’t forget to mention my trusty MagicBand, which I already customized and preordered online after booking my trip. But just remember not to pack your MagicBand in your checked luggage if, like me, you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel and will be relying on Magical Express to pick you up from the airport and take you on your way. Instead, you’re going to want to keep it in your carryon so that when you get in line for your shuttle’s pickup you can activate your bands right there on the spot. Then once you arrive at your hotel, if you have already done online check-in beforehand, you can go straight to your room, scan your MagicBand, and enter without ever needing to stop in at the front desk. But in the event that you are unable to obtain a MagicBand prior to your trip, you can pick one up at your hotel and around various shops and venues all over Disney World and at Disney Springs.
