    I have magic bands for my entire family some living in UK. Can I deliver those bands to London prior to our Disney trip in April(somewhere I read not to take out of country)? Also, does magic express pick up luggage from British airways?

    Hi Kathleen!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I live in the UK so I do know for sure that MagicBands can be taken out of the USA, but I think you may have seen that when MagicBands are included as part of your Disney Resort hotel package they will deliver your MagicBands to your home address if you live in the United States, but for all International Guests these will be available for collection at the Front Desk of your hotel at check-in.  I have worn my MagicBands on the flight home, and brought them back to be reactivated for another trip several times and they have all worked perfectly well, so you can go ahead and send them to your family in the UK prior to your Walt Disney World Resort trip in April next year.  You have plenty of time to do this!  Please remind your family to keep their MagicBands to hand in their carry-on luggage and not pack them in their checked luggage if they are using Disney's Magical Express.

    International Arrivals using Disney's Magical Express will have to retrieve their own luggage from the baggage carousel (regardless of which airline they used) after exiting the U.S. Immigration checkpoint.  They then have the choice of taking their luggage with them to the Disney's Magical Express check-in, in Terminal B, Level 1, to travel with them on the motorcoach, or they can return their luggage to the luggage carousel before proceeding to Disney's Magical Express.  If they choose the second option they must be prepared to provide the airline baggage claim numbers, which are given to all airline passengers at the UK departure airport at the airline's check-in desk. I personally prefer to keep my luggage with me on the motorcoach as it can take up to 3 hours to arrive at the Resort hotel, after my arrival there.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical family vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news and updates on any events that may be happening during your stay.
