    Hi! Just wondering when will I receive the magic bands and luggage tags for DME for my Jan trip? Thanks!!

    Hello Cindy, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great planning question.

    It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Yes, it’s almost time for you to receive some Pixie Dust in your mailbox for your upcoming trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. This is the most exciting part of the vacation countdown. The FastPass+ selections have been made, Disney’s Magical Express has been booked, and the MagicBand order has been finalized.

    I am sure that you have already placed your MagicBand order and the last day for you to make changes to that order is drawing near. When you sign in to your My Disney Experience account and click on the MagicBands and Cards tab, you will see how many days you have left before your order is filled and shipped to you. Once your order is on its way, you will receive a notification with a tracking number. I typically receive my MagicBand order about 4 weeks before my check-in date.

    Disney’s Magical Express will send your travel documents and luggage tags to you about 2-3 weeks prior to your arrival date. This will arrive separately from your MagicBands. I have received my travel information from Magical Express as early as 4 weeks before my arrival. Your magical Mickey mail will be on its way soon. Make a note to pack your MagicBands in a carry on bag. You will need them to unlock the door to your Disney Resort Hotel room and check in with the Cast Member at Magical Express. Have a wonderful trip, and if you have any more questions before you arrive, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
