    This is our third trip to WDW but this time we booked it with shorter notice than we have in the past. How close to the travel dates are MagicBands and luggage tags usually delivered? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Shanda! Sometimes a trip planned with short notice is even better because there's less time to wait, and when it comes to Walt Disney World, it's so hard to be patient!

    You've asked a great question, and I happen to know the answer because I just got my Disney's Magical Express luggage tags in the mail yesterday, which is exactly 30 days before my next trip! This may vary by person, but you should receive your vouchers and luggage tags at least a couple of weeks before your trip (you'll receive one tag per person but if you need more than that, call 866-599-0951 to let them know you need more).

    Currently, if you book more than 30 days in advance and live in the United States, your MagicBands will be mailed to you, however, if you booked your vacation less than 30 days in advance, your bands will be waiting for you at your Walt Disney World resort check-in desk. For most of my trips, our MagicBands arrive within two weeks of our vacation. Usually, about a month out, I start to check my My Disney Experience account anxiously to see if they've shipped, although you will also receive an email from Disney with tracking information- then it takes about ten days from that point for that magical box to show up at your door! Just remember, that since you're planning on taking Disney's Magical Express to your resort, you'll need to have your MagicBands readily accessible, so don't put them in your checked luggage (we always wear ours on the airplane).

    I'm so excited for you Shanda! Check out the Disney Parks Blog for 19 magical experiences happening at Walt Disney World Resort this yEAR!
