    Helen from Cornwall Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    We are travelling from the UK to Orlando. I see we will not have our Magic bands posted to us, but will we be sent travel tags for our baggage please? And as I have booked my whole holiday through Disney, do I still have to book the Magical Express myself?

    Hello Helen and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel where I'm absolutely delighted to assist a Guest who hails from my own home county of Cornwall with their jolly holiday plans to visit Walt Disney World Resort. 
    It certainly sounds like you've got an Unforgettable Disney Holiday all planned out and as a Guest staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel you sure are eligible to utilise the wonderful transportation services of Disney's Magical Express both to and from Orlando International Airport (MCO); to double check your reservation is secured I recommend speaking to a knowledgable Cast Member on the UK freephone number found in the Pre-Arrival section contained within my previous link. I also thought you may find this Getting to Walt Disney World Resort ~ Frequently Asked Questions link to be an extra useful planning resource. 
    As you rightly mention MagicBands are not currently posted internationally and this is also the same for Disney's Magical Express luggage tags. Upon arrival at Orlando International Airport my family prefers to claim our luggage from the carousel after clearing U.S Customs & Border Protection and then take our suitcases with us onboard Disney's Magical Express so when we arrive at our Walt Disney World Resort hotel we're all set and ready to begin our jolly holiday straight away!
    Have a great Disney day.
