    When do I get my luggage tags if I ordered a special magic band

    Hello Joyce, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When my Disney vacation is just around the corner, I look forward to getting Pixie Dust in my mailbox. If you are a guest with a reservation at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will receive a complimentary MagicBand for each member of your travel party, on your reservation. To place your order for those MagicBands, log on to My Disney Experience and click on the “MagicBands and Cards Tab.” You will see the option to place your order by clicking “Get Started.” Once you confirm your shipping address, customize the color of your MagicBand and personalize it with your name or nickname, you can finalize your order. Those MagicBands usually ship two weeks prior to your arrival. If you ordered a MagicBand from Shop Disney Parks online or from the app, they usually ship within a week or so, depending on the shipping option you choose during check out.

    However, requesting a MagicBand does not automatically sign you up for Disney’s Magical Express®. You can make your reservations online or by calling (407) 939-1936. Be sure to have your flight information on hand for each member of your travel party when you call. You will receive your travel information including your magical yellow luggage tags about 2 - 3 weeks before your arrival. I typically like to make my reservation as soon as I have purchased by airfare, but no later than at least a month before my arrival. When you arrive at Orlando International Airport, you will need your MagicBands to check-in with a Cast Member to board your designated motorcoach. Don't forget to pack those MagicBands in your carry-on luggage, you will need them to unlock the door to your Resort Hotel room.

    See ya real soon,
