    After booking my Walt Disney World vacation, how long after will I start recieving all of the documents in the mail?

    Hi Taylor!

    It's wonderful to hear you have planned your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Hooray! Now you have the exciting part of counting down the days until you visit the Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    It's tough to say when exactly you'll begin receiving documents, but I usually start getting magical mail 2-3 weeks after I book our vacation. If you booked a vacation package you can expect to receive your MagicBands and luggage tags around 30 days before your trip (give or take a few.) If you'll also be using Disney's Magical Express, those documents usually arrive shortly after your 45-day mark. Again, these timelines may be different and aren't definitive by any means--only my past experience.

    If you're looking for a fun way to countdown to your trip, I suggest checking out the Countdown to Fun package. My kids loved the scavenger hunt to each fun-filled box and hearing from their favorite pal as the vacation grew closer. 

    Have a fantastic time planning the rest of your trip, Taylor, and if you have any other questions or concerns, please let us know. 

    Magical Wishes,
