    Hi there, can you tell me how far ahead of our trip the travel documents are sent? We'll be leaving Australia about a month before our reservation at WDW begins so I don't want to miss them! Thanks for your help.

    Greetings, and welcome to planDisney, Wendy!

    How excited you must be about your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, the events and celebrations to mark the 50th-anniversary celebration are spectacular!

    Wendy, as an international Guest, your Walt Disney World Resort vacation package Welcome Folder and customized and purchased MagicBands, will be waiting for you at the Front Desk of your Disney Resort hotel on your arrival day. 

    Here is what you have to do in advance of your arrival, Wendy:
    1. Link your Walt Disney World Resort vacation package to your Disney account to be able to manage your plans via the My Disney Experience planning area.
    2. Once your vacation package is linked to your Disney account, please proceed to make your Disney Park Pass – Theme Park Reservations as soon as possible as this is the method of visiting the theme parks at this time.
    3. Update your Family & Friends list to include those travelling with you in your plans during your visit.
    4. Download the My Disney Experience mobile app to manage all your plans before and during your visit anywhere and anytime.
    5. Complete your Disney Resort hotel Online Check-In to be able to participate in Disney’s Direct-To-Room Service which will enable you to access your Guest Room using your mobile device when you receive the alert that your Guest Room is ready (enable all app notifications and location settings).
    6. Update the Payment Method in the My Disney Experience app to facilitate app transactions such as Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, and add the Disney Genie+ service on the very day of your theme park visit to save time waiting in lines for attractions that offer the Lightning Lane entrance.
    7. At 60-days before your arrival make your Disney Dining Reservations and for those tough to secure reservations you can join a walk-up waitlist via Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability in the My Disney Experience app.
    8. Create a Disney MagicMobile pass to access your theme park admission from your mobile device digital wallet using Disney MagicMobile Service via the My Disney Experience app.

    Wendy, you should be ready for your magical vacation after ensuring all these steps are covered.

    It was my pleasure assisting you today, and I wish you the happiest and most memorable vacation at Walt Disney World Resort, thank you so much!
