Dear Monorails & Mickey Tales: We just booked a last minute trip leaving in 3 days. Our magic bands will be waiting for us at our resort. I don't know if our Magical Express paperwork will arrive before we leave. What do I need to show the cast members to board the bus?
All you really need is a reservation at a Disney resort. The Magic Band just speeds up the process a little. Without papers or a MagicBand, you'll need to check in at the Magical Express desk (it's very easy to find). Bring your ID. A reservation confirmation number is also helpful. They'll probably print out all the boarding passes you need for the bus, and you can proceed directly to the bus waiting area from there.
