I know!!! We just returned from our latest cruise, and I must have said that 10 times at least. DH did mention it to Guest Services and the guy said that "they are working on it". :confused3

"Working on it" has been going on for years...literally.

I don't know what it will take, but frankly those times that we are on a participating airline we decide that the convenience is worth the cost of the DCL transfers. Non-participating, maybe not.

Does DCL use this baggage transfer program for other airports like in Vancouver over the summer?? I am hoping to use it when in Miami since I just booked my AA flights!

From your lips to DCL's mouse ears!!! Right now they don't offer the transfer program for any of the west coast cruises.

I wonder if Southwest chooses not to participate as another way of keeping their costs down?:confused3

As far as I know, they still don't have interline ticket or baggage agreements with other airlines, I'm guessing they'd have to pay DCL for this service as well. Just my guess.:confused:

it took years but finally just in the last two years Southwest was added to the WDW so maybe soon DCL will get it added.

i agree with a PP, it'd be the only value to DCL transfers for us. if i have to shlep my own bags i'm going to go with a cheaper alternative. but for them to magically arrive home... i would consider paying the DCL transfer money.

Before they added it at WDW, I never even blinked -- just part of taking Southwest. Now I am spoiled at WDW.

I could save a little bit by getting a rental car..but I'd still have the bag hassle. Would be willing to pay a fee onboard to check my bags.
