    Unfortunately I will be booking my vacation 8-10 days prior to leaving. I was wondering what I should do about the luggage tags and magic bands? Also could i check in early around 10:00am and get my magic bands at check in?

    Hi Shane!

    Thanks for your question. Because you won't have time before your Walt Disney World vacation to receive luggage tags for Disney's Magical Express, simply check in at their counter upon arrival and give them your Magical Express documents and airline baggage claim numbers. They will retrieve your bags for you.

    As for your MagicBands, you will receive those when you check in to your Resort hotel. You can certainly request an early check-in time and depending on availability, your request may be honored although it cannot be guaranteed.

    Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with your planning. Have a magically wonderful day!
