Colorful Ship at Night

    Yvonne from ON Asked

    My daughter and I are staying 3 nights at WDW prior to our Nov 25 sailing on the Fantasy. Will we receive one package for all aspects of the vacation, or one for land and one for sea? We are Canadian so I'm not expecting Magic Bands until arrival.

    Welcome aboard, Yvonne! Your Land and Sea vacation with Disney is going to be absolutely magical!

    Even though you may have booked a Land and Sea package, you will receive separate information packets from Disney Cruise Line and Walt Disney World. You'll get your luggage tags and Disney Magical Express voucher booklet in the mail about a month before you arrive. Before your flight, put those yellow resort tags on any luggage that you want to be sent straight to your resort room. Then, when you arrive at the airport in Orlando, those bags will magically make their way to your resort while you and your carry-ons take a fun ride on the Magical Express motorcoaches to your resort. It can take about three extra hours or so for those checked bags to arrive, so be sure to keep any must-have's in your carry-ons with you.

    Separately, you will also receive in the mail a cruise packet with more cruise details. You'll want to be sure you complete online check-in for your cruise and print the signature form at the end to bring with you to the port too. Luggage tags for the cruise will be included in your cruise packet, but don't put those on until you're ready to send your bags to the ship from your resort. If you've booked the ground transfers from the resort to the ship, you'll get a note in your resort room the night prior to sailing with pick-up time details for the transfers. They will usually pick up your cruise tagged luggage to send ahead right from your resort room around 8:00 a.m., but motorcoaches will be assigned anywhere from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m or so.

    Enjoy this fall escape with Disney, Yvonne!
