    We made our first-time Disney reservations over the phone through DisneyWorld. We have received an email confirmation - will they send tickets or do we get them when we arrive? Also, we heard something about luggage tags?

    Hey Rachel,

    Congratulations on your first vacation to Walt Disney World! You will receive your travel documents about 30 days prior to travel. Luggage tags for Disney's Magical Express, your transportation to and from the airport, will be included.  Only use these if you would like your luggage checked from your departure point to your hotel room. Your bags will typically arrive about 3 hours after you arrive, sometimes longer. If you choose to pick up your own luggage in Orlando do not use the yellow tags on your bags. Your bags will travel with you to your hotel instead. I assume the "tickets" that you spoke of are park tickets. Your park admissions and your dining allotments will all be entered on your Key To The World Card. This will be your life line while at WDW, It will have everything you need to get into the parks and to dine. You may even attach your credit card to it so that you will have charging privileges with that same card. Each person named on the reservation will have one. You will receive your Key cards when you arrive at your hotel. So, don't worry about your travel documents they will be enroute. If you do receive them by 2 weeks prior to travel, call reservations at (407) 939-7675 to inquire on their whereabouts. Your memories will be magical, have a great vacation!
