    This will be the first my coming to Disney world and will be flying in on the 14th, I am looking into booking the disney bus from the airport and am wondering if there will be enough time to mail the bag tags?

    Hi there, Leah!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited to hEAR you will soon be visiting Walt Disney World Resort for the first time!  Make sure you ask for a celebration button when you arrive at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel to commemorate the event and let everyone know that you are celebrating!

    If you yet to make your reservations for Disney’s Magical Express and plan to, I recommend doing so as soon as possible.  You will need to provide your flight information so that your luggage pick-up and motor coach transportation can be coordinated for you.  I have found that Cast Members have a pretty magical way of getting things to you as quickly as possible, if necessary, so there would be a good chance that you would receive them prior to your vacation.  But if in the event you do not receive them prior to your vacation, don’t worry!  Just head directly to the Disney’s Magical Express pick-up location once you arrive at Orlando International Airport and speak to a Cast Member there.  Make sure you have your checked baggage claim tags with you and your bags will be collected for you and delivered to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.  If you receive MagicBands prior to your vacation, be sure to keep these (along with any other important medications or necessities) in your carry-on luggage as you will want to have those handy!

    With just a couple weeks until your magical vacation, now is the time to make sure you have all your FastPass+ selections made as well as any advanced dining reservations firmed up!  If you aren’t able to get what you are looking for now, make sure you have the My Disney Experience Mobile app downloaded to your smartphone and check back as other Guests’ plans will often change!

    If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back!  Wishing you a magical and memorable FIRST Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
