    Hello I have heard after you book a vacation you should receive a package a few weeks later. I have booked a vacation in early January and did not receive anything, nor did I when I booked last year. Do you get the package if you live in Canada. Thanks

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Paula! We love getting questions from guests in the Great White North!  Walt Disney World Resort often has great deals for Canadian Residents, and this is a perfect way to experience magical savings!

    I spoke to my friend, Lynne, today, and she confirmed that you won't receive a vacation booklet or MagicBands in the mail because Disney does not ship these items to Canada. However, you will receive your Disney's Magical Express package (an envelope with vouchers and luggage tags) a couple of weeks before your trip. You'll clear US customs in Canada, so once you land at the Orlando International Airport, it's not necessary to claim your luggage. Simply attach your yellow tags on your suitcases before boarding your plane, and your bags will "magically" arrive in your room 3-5 hours after you land, just like your American friends! Your MagicBands will automatically be waiting for you at the Front Desk when you check-in at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel!.

    The Canadian Pavilion in EPCOT's World Showcase is one of my favourites, and you'll feel right at home after watching the brand new film, Canada Far and Wide. I always like to follow this up with a trip to Le Cellier Steakhouse for some north of the border specialties. Although the poutine is not as authentic as what you'll find in Quebec, this is Disney comfort food at it's best! Just a few steps away at the Refreshment Port, you also find this beloved dish; I'm still dreaming about the duck confit poutine, with fig demi-glace and brie fondue I had at the 2019 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival (I think it's time for me to book another trip)!

    Have a great time, Paula, and if you need any more advice, remember we're all ears!

Meet the Panelist: Eean, Pennsylvania

Hi, I'm Eean from Pennsylvania!  I may have an unusual name, but my passion for Disney is not unique.  It’s amazing how many people you can find who love talking about, "The Most Magical Place On Earth!"  I'm that mom who always has her ears perked at PTO meetings, in the grocery store aisle, or at middle school basketball games waiting for an opportunity to give someone a planning tip to help make their vacation even more magical.
