    Just made final payment to AAA for our trip in June, when should I expect to receive the following - confirmation of our reservations from Disney, the already customized Magic Bands, the baggage tags for our checked luggage.

    Hi Ann,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Final payments are thrilling - we like to do our family happy dance while shouting "we're going to Walt Disney World!"

    With your AAA reservation, you should have received a resort hotel confirmation number. Once you find that confirmation number, go online to the Walt Disney World website. If you have not done so already, create a My Disney Experience Account, then go to Link Reservations and Tickets. Link your resort hotel confirmation number to your account and you are ready to go!

    Once you have that resort hotel linked, you should be able to customize your MagicBands. Just go to MagicBands and Admission Cards in My Disney Experience using the My Disney Experience link located in the top right-hand side of the home page. Be sure to verify the shipping address when you customize those MagicBands. From that page, you can see when your MagicBands have shipped. We typically receive them about two weeks prior to our trip.

    Ann, your luggage tags may be delivered to your AAA office. When we booked through AAA in years past, ours were delivered to the travel agent a few weeks prior to our trip and she called us to let us know when they had arrived. Be sure that your travel agent has registered you for Disney's Magical Express transportation. You can also use the online registration form. I also suggest that you use Disney's Luggage Delivery Service if you are using Disney's Magical Express transportation. We keep our carry-on bags with us along with our MagicBands, but we send the larger bags through the Luggage Delivery Service. Just be sure to have a change of clothes for dinner and/or the pool as well as medications in your carry-on bags!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
