Moderate resort check in

    I have a trip to Disney in a couple of week. Was wondering if I should be receiving anything in the mail prior to leaving? I know when I visited about 5 years ago I did.

    Hi Michael! Welcome to planDisney, and congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation, which is just around the corner!

    I can see how you may feel a little bit empty-handed without having received something physical in the mail from Walt Disney World. However, with the technologies we have at our disposal these days, this is often no longer necessary! If you have linked your Theme Park Tickets to each Guest traveling within your My Disney Experience Account and have Magic Bands or Admission Cards either at your disposal and/or waiting for you at your destination, then all you may need is a mobile device with the My Disney Experience Mobile App! If you utilize Disney’s Magical Express and have linked it to your reservation in advance, proceed to the Disney’s Magical Express Check-In Desk at Orlando International Airport, ideally with at least one MagicBand or Admission Card. If you have not yet linked it, you may talk to the Cast Member at Disney’s Magical Express when you arrive. Do not forget to bring your luggage along for the ride!

    Once you are able, take advantage of Mobile Check-In. You may even be able to proceed directly to your Disney Resort Hotel Room without passing by the physical check-in desk, and perhaps even be able to open your Hotel Room door using your App or MagicBand! 
    If your Theme Park Tickets need to be claimed at the Ticket Box Office, do not fear! You will receive Admission Cards there and can even add a MagicBand to your My Disney Experience Account along the way if you find one you cannot live without! 

    Michael, I hope that I have been able to offer you some comfort in knowing that Disney vacations can be completely “hands-free” these days! I hope you have an incredible trip and enjoy your stay! If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to come back to see us or contact Disney Reservations via telephone.
