    Hi! I have a trip planned for September and was wondering how soon the travel documents are mailed? This isn’t my first time going, but I didn’t do the reservations in the past and have never stayed in park! This will be my boyfriend’s first time ever! TY

    Welcome to a Whole New World, Christie!

    I’m twirling around with so much excitement after hearing that this is your first visit that includes staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Resort. The Resort is something my little ones look most forward to and we try to pick a different Resort each and every time we visit. It’s a fun way to experience a new part of Walt Disney World Resort. Although, my kids already have their favorites, so convincing them to try something new can be a little tricky.

    Since you are already booked, be sure to link your reservation to your My Disney Experience account. Once linked, you will have the option to check-in and select and purchase your MagicBands. The only thing you will receive in the mail, if you purchase them, will be your MagicBands. They usually arrive a few weeks after ordering, so store those in a safe place! 

    Christie, I can’t wait for your return and your boyfriend's first visit. I just know the two of you will have the most magical time exploring the shining, shimmering, splendid, Walt Disney World Resort. Don’t forget to add your Theme Park reservations and if you need anything else, remember, you ain’t ever had a friend like me!
