    Donna from MI Asked

    We are flying in to Orlando from Michigan next February. Since I booked our flight separately from the Disney package will they still send us luggage tags to be picked up by the Disney transportation? Should I call them to request tags? Thanks.

    Hi Donna,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted that you brought this question to us.

    We always book our flights separately from our Walt Disney World vacation packages and our luggage tags are mailed to us a few weeks prior to our trip. Be sure that you have made a reservation with Disney's Magical Express Transportation. If you call 407-939-1936, a cast member will be able to assist you. When using Disney's Magical Express Transportation, be sure that you have your MagicBands with you. If for some reason you forget to pack them in your carry-on luggage, you will need to provide your resort hotel confirmation number to a cast member at the Disney Magical Express Transportation stand.

    On occasion, my luggage tags have not arrived prior to my trip. If this happens, you should still be able to use the luggage delivery service. When you arrive at the Disney Magical Express Transportation stand at the airport, explain to a cast member that your luggage tags did not arrive. You will need to show the cast member your luggage claim tags for each checked bag from the airline. I have done this on two occasions and cast members were able to locate my luggage and have it safely delivered to my resort hotel room. We absolutely love this service. It saves us so much time and effort getting to the resort!

    Donna, just remember that it could take several hours for your luggage to arrive in your room. Be sure to have a change of clothes and important medications in your carry-on bags. Our luggage is typically in our room after we return from dinner.

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
