    Hi there, was wondering when we will get are stuff like park tickets and all. If i use the online check in and once we get there and use magical exspress, cant we go directly to parks? Or do we have to go to resort first? Just has me a little confused :)

    Hi, Katie!

    Let me help you out!  It can all be a bit confusing at first, but Disney really does make it very easy.

    Before you leave for your Walt Disney World vacation, you will receive your Magical Express luggage tags and Motorcoach vouchers.  Put the luggage tags on your bags at your home airport, and your luggage will magically appear in your room 1 - 3 hours after arrival.  When you get to Orlando Airport, go to B Side - Level 1 and follow signs to Magical Express.  Present your boarding vouchers and you will be directed to your assigned Motorcoach which will take you directly to your resort. (Yes, you need to go to your resort first!)

    If you did the online check-in, go to the specified window (there will be an "ONLINE CHECK-IN" sign posted.)   Here, you will receive your welcome packet with resort maps, Times Guide with park hours, resort activity schedules, and more.   You will also receive your Key to the World cards for each member of your travel party age 3 and older.  These will serve as your room key and park tickets and dining plan if that is part of your package. 

    Once you are checked in, you can head to your room to drop any carry-on luggage (if your room is ready) or just head straight to the bus stop and it is off to the magic of the parks!  

    I hope this helps.  If you still have questions, just let us know!  Have a great vacation.
