    How do I know if I qualify for the magical extra benefits on my upcoming trip

    Hello, Michael – welcome to planDisney!

    It sounds as if you are getting ready to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth soon, so get ready for the most unique and magical experiences in sunny Florida, where as a Guest at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel you will enjoy many conveniences and benefits during your stay.

    Michael, if you booked a Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Package that included your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel and theme park admission, you will receive your Magical Extras card for discounts on select dining, entertainment, shopping, and experiences! If you booked through a travel professional, sometimes your vacation package contents including your Magical Extras card will arrive by mail, but my recent experience has been that I was presented with my Magical Extras card along with my Welcome Folder, and MagicBands and/or MagicBand+ devices at the Front Desk upon check-in. If you are still unsure, I recommend contacting a Cast Member at Walt Disney World Resort – Hotel Reservations who will be able to look up your reservation to see if you qualify, or please contact your travel professional for information.

    If you haven’t secured your Disney Park Pass – Theme Park Reservations yet now would be a good time to do so for each day of valid admission by accessing the Disney Parks Pass System in the dropdown via My Disney Experience on the top right of the main page of your Disney account online. If using the My Disney Experience App, please select the Feature Menu on the main page and on your Welcome Michael page, please select the Tickets and Passes tile.

    During your visit, to save time in lines for attractions that offer the Lightning Lane entrance, consider purchasing the Disney Genie+ service using the My Disney Experience App – the app also offers many other helpful features, such as Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering to order your food ahead of time.

    Don’t forget to complete your Disney Resort Hotel Online Check-In by accessing Resort Hotel via My Plans - Dining, Resort Hotel and Tickets under the My Disney Experience planning area on your Disney account, and personalize your MagicBands or MagicBand+ devices which will enable you to access the Disney magic and entitlements during your visit. Your MagicBands or MagicBand+ devices will be presented to you upon check-in at the Front Desk of your Disney Resort Hotel as they are not shipped Internationally at this time.

    Michael, it was my pleasure assisting you, I hope all works out with your vacation plans and that you are eligible for a Magical Extras card, please stop by for more first-hand tips and advice, thank you!
