DME to alternative resort

hi, im new to the boards so please bear with me

my partner and our two kids arrive in WDW the day before me (Dec 13th) and will have all our luggage checked in by the time i arrive. i have exams to write so i get there the following day on a 7:30 pm flight (Dec 14th). we were hoping to do MVMCP on the evening i arrive. they will be hitting the parks earlier but i wanted to join them asap when my flight touches down. i won't have much on me except my purse and laptop bag.

we will be staying at disney's caribbean beach resort for the duration of our stay. but is there anyway I can catch DME to one of the resorts that is serviced by the monorail in order to get to MK asap for the festivities? i won't have anything to check in at my resort. do they check which bus you jump on when it's time to load passengers? can i make this specific request with DME beforehand?

any info would be really appreciated

cheers,

kimmie

Currently not available; you may only reserve and take Magical Express to and from your own resort.

At the DME welcoming area you are directed to the bus queue for your resort. You have or will receive vouchers that are scanned by the driver as you board the DME bus.

Nothing prevents "hidden city ticketing"; your getting off the DME bus at an earlier resort stop (you see and like) along the way to your resort.

As Seashore said, you have to take DME to your scheduled resort. BUT, in your case, I would politely ask at the check in desk if it was possible. They may have a bus going in your direction. If not, go to your resort and go from there...... It never hurts to nicely ask.

I have been in your exact same situation twice- showing up on a different flight after my family had checked in, no luggage, no need to stop at the resort to pick up tickets -so I wanted to go to a different resort to get to a park to be with my family ASAP. Both times, I have politely requested some pixie dust at the DME check in counter. I explained my situation and requested to go to a specific resort other than the one I was staying at. Both times, my request was granted. Ask nicely and my guess is your request will be granted. Just know it is not a guarantee - it is pixie dust if it happens! Have a great trip!

You say in your post that you will have your purse and computer bag. Would you want to take your computer bag to the Magic Kingdom?
