We have an early flight - 7:15 am, from MCO to Atlanta. Will ME be running that early? I figure with lots of very early flights from MCO to Atlanta, it will be, but I'm new at this and would love some input!

Thanks!

Yep, DME runs 24/7. If you have a 7:15 flight, DME will want to pick you up around 4:30 or so. That in itself was good enough for me to change my flight last Dec. No way was I getting up that early!!! But, never fear, DME will be up and running for you.

We are NOT morning people. But we're going Thanksgiving week, and flights were selling out right and left. Had to take what we could get and sleep when we get home! So what time will we have to check out? This could get painful! LOL!

If you're traveling on a "participating airline", you can get your boarding passes and check your luggage 12 hours ahead....so after 7pm the night before you could take care of your big baggage. Then just carry-ons to deal with in the morning, do express checkout and head for the bus.

Oops, you wouldn't be able to bring your toothpaste in your carry-on!

Well, no, really they can't. Passengers on participating airlines (see sticky threads at top of Transportation board) can check their luggage and check themselves in at the Resort Airline Counter three to twelve hours in advance.
The RACs are open from about 5:30 AM to about 1:30 PM - so anyone flying between 1:30 AM and 8:29 AM is outside the available window and would have to check their luggage and themselves at the airport :(
