    We are staying at a Port Orleans Riverside. I've received the magic bands, and was wondering if I needed to do anything with them or are they ready to do? Also, is there a way to verify the Magical Express transportation? Thanks!

    Hi Beverly! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You will be arriving for your stay at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort - Riverside VERY soon! I hope you have plans to dine at Boatwright’s Dining Hall for dinner one night during your stay. Their Deep South Shrimp and Grits is delicious!

    Your MagicBands should be good to go! Since the hotel reservation is linked to your My Disney Experience account, along with all other Guests in your party that are staying with you, the MagicBands should auto-magically be ready to be used on your trip!

    For Disney’s Magical Express, if you have already set it up you should receive instructions and luggage tags in the mail. If you haven’t received them yet, give Disney a call at (407) 939-1936. They can help confirm and/or reserve Disney’s Magical Express for your arrival and departure. Make sure to have your flight information handy when you call. Even without luggage tags from Disney’s Magical Express, you can still have them transport your bags to your hotel room. Simply keep the baggage claim numbers when you check your bags prior to your flight, then give the Cast Member the numbers when you check-in at the podium for Disney’s Magical Express.

    I hope this helps with your upcoming trip, Beverly! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
