    We booked our DisneyWorld vacation( April 1-7,2012) through Disney this time. I'm just wondering if we will recieve anything by mail before our trip. Guess I should also tell you we made our reservations back in January:)

    Hi Karen!

    You should have received a letter in the mail from Disney with your reservation number on it.  The reservation number is the most important thing and as long as you have it, you should be good to go.  However, I know I would be more comfortable with seeing something in writing.  I suggest calling Disney and asking for a letter.

    About a week before your trip (sometimes earlier), you will receive your luggage tags for Disney's Magical Express and information on how to catch it.  It's not critical if you don't receive the luggage tags; if you don't receive them, you just need to pick up your luggage yourself from the baggage carousel and bring the luggage with you to the Disney's Magical Express Welcome Center at Orlando International Airport.  That's what I do on all of my trips, regardless of whether I received luggage tags at home or not.  That's because I like the idea of my luggage arriving when I do at Walt Disney World as opposed to sometimes several hours later!

    I hope this helps!  Write back if you have any more questions!
