MagicBands and MVMCP

WDW Newbie question: We will be arriving on Friday, Dec. 22, just in time for our MVMCP tickets (4 pm). I don’t want to start using our 5-day park-hoppers until the next day, so how do I make sure that only the MVMCP ticket gets used on Friday? Does simply entering MK after 4 pm do the trick? Or do I need to do something else? And is this MVMCP ticket automatically on my MagicBand? The MagicBands and all tickets are already separately entered on our family’s MyDisneyExperience account.

The party entrance will be different than general entrance. Enter via designated party line and you will be just fine. All tickets are linked to MB if they are linked in MDE.

Thanks so much! One less thing to think about.
