    Magical Express questions

    Hi, I did a search but didn't find an answer to my question. We are traveling with 2 seniors and want to make this as hassle free as possible, as I am sure some of you are. How far out from your trip did you receive your ME tags etc.? We have plenty of time (49 days) but I was curious as to when I should expect our info. We've never used ME before and while excited to do so, I am a little anxious to get out tags. If our tags don't arrive in time, what do we do? I really don't want to drag our parents to baggage claim. Thanks.

    If you get enough tags, that might be just what you want to do. I placed two tags on my parents, left them at baggage claim, and ME brought them back to my room without issue. Good luck!

    But seriously, the info should be right on the website. I'm sure there are other people like you who are anxious to know as much as they can so that they are able to prepare and have one less thing to be hassled with. "When are my tags going to get here" should be a common enough question that there might be an answer in the FAQ section. Otherwise, you might want to just call and find out for sure. We could tell you here that it'll arrive in three weeks and they never get there. I've called two weeks before to book the ME and they sent my tickets and tags via FedEx, all for free. Nice service.

    Re: Magical Express questions

    we havent received ours yet either and we leave in 8 days.

    my travel agent says not to worry, just check your bags with the airline and then when you arrive at mco, take your tags to ME and they can find your bags then deliver them later.

    otherwise, you can carry on your bags if they are carryon onto the plane then onto me. that is what we are doing since we went plannin on checking any luggage anyways.

    hope that helps.

    if all else fails, call ME and talk to them...also check the DisBoards, they have lots of info there!!
