    I'm traveling from Canada, and will only receive my Magic Bands when I reach my resort. How would I go about checking in for my Magical Express trip without my Magic Band?

    Hi Danielle,

    May will be around us before you know it, and then it'll be time for Danielle's magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort. Awesome!

    MagicBands are such a great invention. They combine so many things in a fun and comfortable wearable item, like Theme Park Tickets, FastPass+ reservations, Disney PhotoPass Service memories, even the key to your room, if you're staying at select Disney Resort hotels.

    Guests from outside the US are welcomed to customize their MagicBands by selecting from popular colors and even inscribing their name on it, however they will be waiting at the Resort hotel. But what about Disney's Magical Express? First, with your luggage tags, you will also receive a letter that you will be able to use to Check-In for this service. In any case, you can also use your reservation number.

    One last tip: remember to make FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance, an exclusive Disney Resort Hotel Guest Benefit. Happy planning!
