After cruise, can you just get on bus without reservation?

This is just a curious question and the planning OCD part of me would never go without a reservation, but I'm just wondering...if you are a total newbie at this, didn't think of transportation to your Disney hotel till the morning of debarkation, could you walk outside, go up to that desk and ask to get on and pay there?

No, Not outside, but I have bought a transfer that morning at the GS desk onboard. There is no desk outside or means to accept payment. It would have to be done onboard.

Ok, so that desk outside is strictly for telling you which bus to get on and that's it?

And now that I think about it, nobody even validated that morning whether we had any proof that we paid, I thought that was a little strange.

When we normally pre arrange DCL transfers the CM checks our KTTW card as we leave the terminal to see if we purchased transfers...they just look at it so it must have some code on it to prove transfers were purchased.

The CM outside greets you and asks where you are heading to and directs you to correct bus (WDW buses or MCO buses). The tend to load and leave when full so there are a few buses going to each place.

Which CM, I don't recall anyone checking, but it's such a fast process getting off they probably did?

IIRC if you buy the transfer onboard, they put a tiny sticker on your KTTW card.

I think the code is "AP" for "airport to port" and "PA" for "port to airport" -- at least that has been a consistent code on my KTTW for my cruises

If you paid for transfers there would be a code T on your key to the world card. If you want to add a last minute transfer you go to the desk.

What desk? Guest Service inside or is there a desk outside for this purpose? I never recall seeing a desk outside but we are usually in a rush to get to the bus. If there is a desk outside I will correct my info in previous posts on this thread.

There was definitely a CM directing traffic when we got off last September. There weren't a lot of people heading back to the Boardwalk so we were put on a van with two other couples.
