    My adult daughter who lives in a different state is sharing a room with us when we go to Disney. Since she is on my reservation can I have her magic band and luggage tag mailed directly to her or will I need to receive it and then mail it to her.

    Hello Megan, and thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with some great planning questions.

    I have taken several trips with my out-of-town and out-of-state relatives to the Walt Disney World Resort. You are going to have an amazing time and create lots of family memories on your upcoming trip. When you place your MagicBand order, you will be asked to confirm the shipping address. Unfortunately, MagicBands can only be sent to one address on the reservation. In the past, the only way to ship a MagicBand to someone other than the name on the reservation would be for you to decline your new MagicBand. If your daughter has a MagicBand from a previous trip, she could use it to check in with the Cast Member at Disney’s Magical Express. Typically, MagicBands are sent out about a month prior to your arrival, so you would have plenty of time to mail it to her. Don’t forget to make sure that your MagicBands are packed in a carry-on item, you will need them to unlock the door to your Resort Hotel room too.

    Disney’s Magical Express
    will only send the “yellow” luggage tags to the address listed on your Resort Hotel reservation. You should receive your luggage tags about 3-4 weeks prior to your arrival date. If you do not receive them in time to mail them to your daughter, Hakuna Matata. When your daughter arrives at Orlando International Airport and checks-in at the Magical Express Welcome Center, have her let the Cast Member know that she did not receive her tags before her departure. The Cast Member will make note of her bag claim ticket numbers and luggage services will handle the rest, just like magic.

    See ya real soon,
