    Hi Our first trip to DisneyWorld is planned for November 2017, we are based in Australia but will be staying with family in Tennessee prior to our flight to Orlando, can we have our luggage tags sent to our families address to simplify baggage collection?

    Hi Phoebe,

    I'm very glad to know that in a few months you'll be visiting us at Walt Disney World Resort. How exciting! I know November may seem far far away, however It'll be here before you know it.

    One of the many Disney Resort Hotel Guest Benefits is that you get to experience Disney's Magical Express, a free motorcoach transportation between Orlando International Airport and your Disney Resort Hotel. And depending on your arrival time, you can have your checked luggage be magically transported directly to your room.

    Since you'll be staying in the US, you can surely have your Magic Bands and Disney's Magical Express luggage tags be sent to your friend's house. I've actually recently helped some friends from Argentina this past Fall. Make sure you inform your travel agent that you want your Magical Express tags be sent to the US address, or call (407) 939-1936. Similarly, you can enter the US address when customizing your Magic Bands.

    One last tip: you can make advanced dining reservations up to 180 days in advance. So start thinking about the many places and make a reservation at the Walt Disney World restaurants and reservations page. Happy planning!
