    This is the first time I have booked a vacation package that includes air fare. What should I expect? With the new airline practice of not assigning seats, will I have to worry about not having a seat or arriving later than planned?

    Hi Kristin,

    With the increasing use of the internet, you should have most of your confirmation information in an email. This includes your airline tickets. If the airline you chose has assigned seating, you should be able to go into that reservation and change your seat now. This will allow you to sit together during your flight. Take note of exit rows as you need to be a certain age to sit in them.

    If you can not assign your seat now, it will be done by the airlines or you will need to choose it when you board the plane. I recommend visiting the airline's website to see what the boarding process is like. 

    If you are using Magical Express, you will receive luggage tags for your checked bags. Once you check them at your airport, you will not seem them until they arrive in your room. You will want to pack a bag with items you will need until your luggage arrives which could be three hours later. Upon check in, the cast member will tell you if your airline participates in early check in and how to have your luggage returned to the airport.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
