    We booked flights after we booked our resort. We called WDW to sign up for Magical Express. How can we be sure that we are signed up for ME when it doesn't show anywhere on MyDisneyExperience?

    Hello Carrie, and thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great planning question.

    I am so excited to hear that you will be starting off 2019 with a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort early next year. It sounds like you are planning a wonderful vacation and Disney’s Magical Express is the best way to arrive in style at your Disney Resort Hotel. You are absolutely correct in noticing your reservation with Disney’s Magical Express does not show up in My Disney Experience. You can easily confirm that you have given the correct information to them by calling (407) 939-1936. If you need to make corrections or changes to your flight information, the Cast Members you speak to can assist you. Approximately 30 days before your arrival date, you will receive some travel information from Disney’s Magical Express. This information will contain your “yellow” luggage tags that you will use before checking your bags at your point of departure. It will also contain a map and instructions on the location of the Magical Express Welcome Center at Orlando International Airport. Do not forget to pack your MagicBands in your carry on luggage. You will need them to unlock the door to your Disney Resort Hotel room or enter a theme park once you arrive.

    I also wanted to mention that since you are a guest of a select Disney Resort Hotel, if you already have your theme park admission tickets linked to your My Disney Experience accounts, you can begin to make your FastPass+ selections in just a few days. You can sign in to My Disney Experience online or the mobile app on November 7th at 7:00 a.m. Eastern Time to begin making your FastPass+ selections. Good luck with your planning and if you have any more questions before you arrive please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
