    Diane from TX Asked

    We received our Magic Bands. Is there anything I have to do to activate them, or will they automatically be activated on the day I arrive? Our luggage tags weren't in the same box. Are those mailed separately? Thanks for your help

    Welcome back, Diane!

    We're so happy to have you come back and visit with us again for tips on planning your upcoming Disney vacation.

    Your MagicBands are already linked and ready to be used upon your arrival to your Walt Disney World Resort. No activation is required. All you'll need to do is remember to bring them along with you and have them on once you arrive at the Magical Express check-in at the airport. 

    The yellow luggage tags, which are used to identify the luggage that is to be transported to a Walt Disney World Resort, will come separately and should arrive at your home within the next few days. If you don't receive your yellow luggage tags by the mid-week, the first week of September, call 866-599-0951 and a Cast Member can verify that your reservation is in the system. At that point, they can also send you luggage tags. 

    So that you know, if your luggage tags don't arrive at your home in time. Be sure to stop by baggage claim once you reach the Orlando International Airport, grab your bags, and head to the Magical Express Check-in. At the end of your magical vacation, be sure to stop by the Resort Airline Check-in to have your luggage sent on to the airport while you enjoy the remainder of your time at Disney!

    Diane, enjoy your stay! If you have more questions before your trip, visit with us again!

    Happy planning,
