Hi Dad! It’s been so much fun following your website over the last 6 months while planning our first Disney World vacation. We are planning on taking the Magical Express before checking into the Port Orleans French Quarter on September 24 for 10 days. We just paid the remainder of our balance and have recently passed the 45 day mark. I was wondering when we will be getting our Disney Magical Express baggage tags? What else should we be getting from Disney in the mail?
Thanks so much!

Dad’s in a couple of weeks Answer
About one month before you depart you will get a package from Disney with your travel documents, your luggage tags and your Disney Magical Express baggage tags. If you don’t get them by 2 weeks before make sure to call Disney. (If you had used Dreams Come True Vacations, you would know this already, and if they don’t show up on time Dreams Come True Vacations would be hunting them down for you.)
What will be in your travel documents? There will be an itinerary that has all of your reservation numbers. Make sure you keep this page. You’ll also get a coupon book with some coupons to things at Downtown Disney and the mini-golf courses and some tokens at the hotel arcade room. You will also get some gnarly looking luggage tags.
You don’t have to use the luggage tags, but make sure your Magical Express baggage tags are on your luggage when you depart. That way Disney luggage fairies will know to pick up your luggage at the airport and deliver it Magically to your room. (That’s why they call it Magical Express.)
Bet you’ve never seen luggage fly before.
Dad’s Bottom Line
Carrie, thanks for taking the time to look at Dad’s Guide to WDW. I appreciate it. I hope you have a Magical experience and come back and tell us all about it.
