Magical Express w/ Magic Band

Hello.

Do we have to register for magical express?

We have our magic band. What do we need to do?

We would like our baggage to be delivered to our hotel.

You have to register for the Magical Express separately from getting your magic band. They are entirely different things. If you check your reservation it should show if you requested Magical Express Ground Transportation.

As the previous poster said, it's completely different bayou need to call Disney to book magical express. You will have to provide them with your flight info.

OH....I see....thank you.

Does it show up on DME when it closer to my reservation date?
I haven't seen it on DME so far.

I am 25 days from my reservation on Nov 8th.

If you have booked it through ME or if you have filled out the information on your online booking - you didn't say how you did it - it will show up on your reservation as ground transportation as previous poster stated.

If not, I would call back and confirm; they will also need your incoming and outgoing flight information.

I booked through Expedia but I entered my reservation number on DME. I see my reservation on DME but I don't see any where stating ground transportation.

What do I do now?

I can see our Magical Express reservations attached to our hotel reservation, but it's not on the main MDE page. You have to go to the "My Reservations" page in order to see it. Did you try that? I was confused at first too.

I don't see it on "my reservations". Do you think I have to wait until the trip gets closer? I'm 25 days out right now.

I don't think so, our reservations are for November 10 and I can see ours. If you already made Magical Express reservations and they're not showing up, I think I would make the dreaded phone call to Disney and see what's going on.

I'm beginning to realize it's so tricky when you book through places like Expedia for your trip vs through Disney directly.

I tired calling Disney's Magical Express directly but they can't see my reservation yet. With Expedia reservations show up about 7 days before. I'm guessing that's the problem. I can be patient. I will keep an eye on it though.

Problem solved! There was no link on my DME site but I contacted Expedia and I just needed to register at this link.

Disney's Magical Express had already confirmed my information! They are mailing me the yellow tags.
