    When does Disney normally send the luggage tags and magic bands?

    Hello Robin, and thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question. You will find some Pixie Dust in your mailbox very soon.

    I am assuming that you have already contacted Disney’s Magical Express and given them the travel information for everyone in your travel party. Disney’s Magical Express will send those magical yellow luggage tags along with your travel information about 2-3 weeks before your scheduled arrival.

    My Disney Experience will tell you how many days you have left to customize your MagicBands before your order is ready to ship. Once you have placed your order, you will receive a notification when your MagicBands have shipped. Typically, I always receive my MagicBands about a week before my scheduled departure from home. You will want to make sure that you do not pack your MagicBands in your checked baggage. You will need them to check-in with the Cast Member at Magical Express and to unlock the door to your Resort Hotel room. If you need any more help before you arrive, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
