    We received luggage tags that look more like credit cards than the yellow tags that were mentioned in some of the latest Q & A answers. Are these the correct ones?

    Hi there, Douglas!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  It sounds like you have an upcoming trip to the most magical place on Earth, and you're perhaps hoping to take advantage of Disney's Magical Express services.  I know when I visit the parks with my family, I love to get those big yellow tags in the mail and put them directly on my suitcases before departure at our home airport.  This means that we can bypass baggage claim at the Orlando International Airport and head directly to the Disney's Magical Express queue on level 1 of the airport!  See this map for a very helpful layout of the airport so you know just where to go.

    Now, regarding those yellow tags - they will be mailed to travelers who book a select Walt Disney World Resort Hotel for their vacation, and call the following number to register at least 2-3 weeks prior to the trip: (407) 939-1936.  But Douglas, even if your vacation is within 2-3 weeks from now - never fear!  If your flight arrives to the Orlando International Airport between the hours of 5 AM and 10 PM, you can still benefit from the save service. All you need to do is provide your baggage claim numbers to a representative at the Disney’s Magical Express service location at the airport and they’ll take care of the rest! On my most recent trip, I was able to try this for myself for the first time. I had no yellow tags on my bags and I was somewhat nervous about their journey, but within 2-3 hours after my arrival at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, my bags magically appeared in my resort room!

    My last bit of advice for anyone enjoying this benefit is that you please pack a few essential items in your carry on bags. This should ideally include your Magic Bands or Admission Cards, valuables, medications, and a change of clothes if needed for whatever your first adventure may be! This handy FAQ page answers many more questions about this wonderful service! It is truly worth experiencing the freedom of being relatively "bag free" as you board the motorcoach that will begin your family's journey!

    Douglas, it sounds like the tags you describe as credit cards may be the complimentary luggage tags that are often included in your Magic Bands delivery box for your use and to have a keepsake of your amazing travels.  If they do not have any sort of bar code but instead space to write your name, address and other such details, then probably this is what they are!  

    I'm so glad you found the Disney Parks Moms Panel and I hope that this answer was helpful to you, Douglas!  Please feel free to come back if we can be of any more help now or in the future!

    See ya real soon!
