    No express luggage tickets or bands received yet in the mail. Apparently bands pick up at resort since we live in Canada. How can we use the magic express at the airport with no bands or if we don’t get our luggage tickets?

    Hi Angela,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can imagine the excitement in your household as you prepare for your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    First, be sure that Disney's Magical Express® does indeed have your flight arrival information. U.S. and Canadian guests can call 407-939-1936 to confirm travel details. If you need to arrange to ride Disney's Magical Express® and booked your vacation through a travel agent be sure to contact your travel agent to add Disney's Magical Express® transportation to your reservation.

    When you arrive to the Disney Magical Express® area at the Orlando International Airport, have your resort confirmation number ready. On a few occasions, I never received my transportation documents or MagicBands in the mail prior to my trip, so I simply gave the cast member at Disney's Magical Express® desk my resort hotel confirmation number. It only took a few minutes and I was able to board the bus to my resort hotel!

    Angela, if you make Fast Pass+ or dining plans for your arrival day, be sure to allow plenty of time to get from the airport to your resort hotel then to the theme park or restaurant. Keep in mind also that you may have travel delays. Typically, we catch an early morning flight and I make our first Fast Pass+ or dining reservation for that evening. Doing so gives us time to check-in to the hotel, unpack, relax and explore the resort.

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
