We are going to WDW in August--7 nights at Pop Aug 14-21 and 7 nights at AKL Aug 21-28. It has been paid off since May although the 45 days prior was June 29. I still haven't received any luggage tags or documentation from Disney. In the past, it has taken about 2 weeks but it is 3 full weeks and still nothing. Anyone else waiting for their documents?? :confused3

We will be at POP from Aug.26th - Sept.1st. I received our ME tags about a week and a half ago, but nothing else from Disney. Our 45 day mark was only July 11th though so it's probably too early yet.

In short, I'm waiting for a TON of documents. ;)

The DME tags came just days after the 45 day mark, whereas the WDTC vouchers take FOREVER to arrive...

August 14th - 21st? Your still 3 weeks out, that's LOTS of time for them to arrive yet. Not to worry though, all you need is your reservation number and/or surname that the reservation is under in order to receive everything in your package at check in. :)

Hi, We are going to Pop Century August 19th to 29th..

We recieved our DME tags on July 10th ,the vouchers and rest of the documentation on July 12th..

We were paid in full by June 28th so I was really surprised that we got them so quickly..

I wouldn't worry though you do have the 3 weeks left but if you do not have them by 2 weeks you should call..

...I would call, and explain you're leaving early (Splashmom is driving, so no DME from the airport), so you won't be home to receive your check-in documents.

As long as you have your Confirmation numbers, they should be able to give you everything else upon check-in.

And you could always ask them to fax copies to you, too:)

Heehee :goodvibes ..I'm getting excited for you, too! Not much time left to go!!! :drive: :drive:

Let's go OT for a second...just for a second, I promise!! :teeth:
So we've talked about SM's must-have eats :mickeybar , must-do rides pirate: ...now what's on the list for must-have souvin-ears??!!:tink:

Thanks for the advice--I think I will call tomorrow. I have my confirmation numbers but I am sure I normally have received my documents by now (since I only have 18 days to go!!).

I can't believe that I am getting really excited about the drive! :teeth: My first thoughts were about how long it was but now it seems like an adventure!

Hmmm...souvenirs...I always love the Disney World calendars. I can't usually get one because we normally go in the spring. I have had other people get one for me but this year, I can get my own!! :banana: I think I'll get one for the kitchen, one for my bedroom, one for work...and maybe another one just incase!! We always buy beach towels too. My kids are lifeguards and we have a pool so towels are well used. Of course, the most important item is my Disney snowglobe! I have six but I will be adding one to my collection! Anyone else have a favorite souvenir?

Thanks mbb--you always get me more excited with your comments!! :yay:

FYI - I received a few sets of documents today for the week of August 14th - 21st. But I'm still waiting on more.

I also know for a fact that these particular ones were mailed out by Disney on June 30th. So it can indeed take some time to get over the border. :)

What documents are we talking about? I received my ME tags a couple of weeks ago (trip is Aug. 15-23), and I have a confirmation that lists what we have, but no Planet Hollywood voucher. Will that come before we get there? Anything else? This is the first time that I've done a "package" with WDTC, so I haven't a clue. (Not that that's new! :rotfl: )

SplashMom

We normally get a little plastic package with luggage tags and vouchers for your resort, tickets, and any other promo items that may be included (Planet Hollywood, etc.). I still didn't receive anything so I called today. Everything is confirmed so the CM said not to worry, I should receive something soon. She checked and my reservations are fine so I'll just hope to get something tomorrow!

We are checking in on Aug 14 and I received my docs on July 20th!!! I had my trip paid off for some time but got the docs on July 20th.

28 days out and no docs yet. :sad2: I did receive ME tags a while back. I know it's not a big deal it's just so exciting to get them so I wish they were here already.

SplashMom
07-29-2006, 08:23 AM
I finally received my luggage tags, etc. on July 27. This is cutting it a little close since we are driving. There is still time but why does it take so long? The date on the docs was July 1 and it was in an air mail package. Good thing there was no rush!

SplashMom - I just received the remainder of my docs yesterday (July 28th) for August 14th departures.

I have NO idea why they take so long, especially given the fact that the ones I was waiting for were mailed out June 30th. :confused3

This is cutting it a little close since we are driving
Tell me about it. I have someone leaving August 14th to St. Pete's and they are heading to WDW for free dining a week after that. Needless to say, I highly doubt that their docs will arrive in time for their departure to St. Pete's.

But the sad truth is, Disney doesn't care. Since you don't *need* these vouchers or luggage tags to check in, they won't 'bend over backwards' to get them out to us in time. :rolleyes:

We are driving to Disney Aug 19 arriving @ Beach Club Mon Aug 21 for a week on the MYW Free Dining Package. All I have ever received is a 2 page confirmation of my reservation details. What else should I be expecting and when should I have gotten it or do you get all info at check-in??

zookeeper
08-01-2006, 02:46 PM
You should get a package with luggage tags, certificate for Planet Hollywood and another confirmation page. As long as you've got your confirmation and you are in their computer system you'll be OK even if you don't get it before you leave. You can always call Disney to double check that everything's OK. Since you're driving you don't need to worry about ME tags. As far as I know that's all you would be missing. As for me...25 days out and no docs yet. *sighs* :sad2:

Well I haven't booked through Disney before, but I have booked through BCAA and got all of my documents well in advance of any trips I have planned.

This year's trip we aren't leaving until Oct 28 and our cruise portion isn't until Nov 5 but we have already received some documents and info on our cruise (that plus the airfare is fully paid for already).

Last year going through BCAA to DL we had our documents several weeks before we left. Actually made us nervous that we would lose them before we left.

I do know that MANY times my mother (in Kansas City) has sent packages to my daughters and those packages have gone through USPS into Canada to Canada Post and her tracking numbers show that it has left the US and then it takes almost 3x as long for Canada Post to get it to me. Same thing when I send things the other way. Canada Post seems to take a LONG time whereas mail in the US seems to get their quicker.

We leave on Aug 25 and so far all we have received are the DME tags which came about 3 weeks ago. Nothing else yet though but I keep checking the mail every day.

I've booked so many times through Disney directly, that I've lost count. ;)

But NEVER have the documents taken THIS long to arrive! They are usually here a good month - 6 weeks (if not more) in advance of travel time. My educated guess is that Disney is bombarded with the free dining offer, hence all of the delays with documents. :rolleyes:

This year's trip we aren't leaving until Oct 28 and our cruise portion isn't until Nov 5 but we have already received some documents and info on our cruise (that plus the airfare is fully paid for already).

DCL is completely different. Although it is still a Disney company, it is a completely separate entity. So they do not run the same, as DCL must follow majority of cruise ship rules and regs. That being said, although you do receive that nice little package from DCL well in advance, you won't receive your actual cruise documents until about 21 days prior to travel. :)

We have found the opposite we send things to my sister in PA and it gets to teh border in a matter of a day or 2 max and then seems to take 5-7 days to arrive to her in PA after it clears the border check.

It seems like we should have received it by now. Oh well, I have our reservation numbers so hopefully we won't have a problem.

I just want everyone to know that it's not Mickey's fault for the delayed docs. When docs are mailed out July 7th and it's August 9th and they haven't been received yet...you can blame it all on our wonderful postal system. :rolleyes:

Our Planet Hollywood vouchers came in the mail. We also got " vouchers" for our hotel room which I don't believe you need as long as you have your confirmation number. And we got luggage tags. We are not using ME so I'm not sure if they are the same as ME. They are hard plastic with a Castle hollogram picture on them.
