    Going to be in Disney with family in 4 weeks! YEAHH!! I got my magical express luggage tags in mail, but with no flight info on them as I hadn't provided it yet. I have since called Disney and provided all needed info. Will I receive new luggage tags?

    Your experience may differ from mine, but I suspect you won't receive new luggage tags, since the only important information on the Magical Express (ME) luggage tags is your name and the resort you are staying at.  If those two items are correct, then there is no reason to re-send you the tags.

    When you check in at the airport, the airline will still put their own luggage tags on your bags to help make sure your luggage goes to Orlando.  The ME luggage tags are only used to identify that your bags should be handled by ME once they arrive in Orlando, to display your name (so ME can look up your room number), and to know where to take your luggage within WDW.

    Although the ME process usually works very smoothly, and almost feels like an extension of the airline, in reality there are several entities involved.  I find it helpful to think about it as three separate entities, and then the process makes more sense...

    1) Airline: Gets you, your family, and your luggage to Orlando airport
    2) ME-luggage: Picks up your luggage at Orlando and takes it to your resort (should arrive no later than three hours after you arrive)
    3) ME-bus: Takes you and your family from the Orlando airport to your resort (may make up to three stops along the way to your resort, depending upon which guests arrive around the same time that you do)

    If you think of it this way, you can more easily see why you really shouldn't need new ME luggage tags.

    Hope that helps. ºoº
