    I dont have any documents/magic bands in the mail as I have just made the reservations for resort and tickets couple of days ago. Do I have to pick up my luggage at baggage claim and go to the magical express and show my email confirmation?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Satyanarayana!

    Last minute vacations to Walt Disney World Resort are THE BEST! My first visit was actually on our magical honeymoon 10 yEARS ago! We made our reservation on a Monday, and arrived on the Thursday of the same week! Since you do not have your yellow luggage tags for Disney’s Magical Express, you will have to collect your luggage once you arrive to Orlando International Airport.  If you haven’t already, make sure to register for Disney’s Magical Express- there is a simple form that you can fill out online, or you can call and talk to a friendly Cast Member, make sure to have your flight information with you when you do this. Once your flight lands and you have collected your luggage, head down to Disney’s Magical Express greeting centre on the B-side of the terminal on level 1 (your luggage will be on level 2). If you have any MagicBands from a previous visit that is active and connected to your account (and less than 2 years old to ensure the battery is still functional), you could bring it to check-in for your shuttle to your Disney Resort hotel. Alternatively, you can present photo ID to a Cast Member at the Disney’s Magical Express counter and quickly be whisked away to the magic!

    Since you have not received your new MagicBands, you will receive them upon Check-In. If you were unable to get your desired Disney Restaurant reservations, I recommend attempting a walk-up first thing in the morning to see if there is any availability throughout the day, as you may have luck (and a little Pixie Dust) on your side!

    I hope you have a magical vacation and please come and see us again soon,
