Holy Crack of Dawn....ME ?

Does anyone know how early DME buses run.

My homeward flight takes off at 6:55 am

(It's my March trip I'll be at ASMusic)

I'm assuming that I may have to carry on my luggage as the chance of RAC at 3 in the morning is small?

(Pick up is 3 hours ahead, luggage check in at 4 hours ahead if I remember correctly).

The Resort Airline Check-In desk daily operating hours begin at 5:00 am. Since you must be checked in 3 hours in advance, you canít use the resort luggage and check-in service for your return to the airport if your flight departs before 8:00 am.

You'll have to carry and check in your own bags at the airport.

THis is correct.

okay after much OMGing and what to do and where to stay and blah blah blah

I went back added 26 bucks to my ticket and changed to a 5:40 PM flight.

I'm getting home late, but I've just decided that I'd rather be sleepy on Friday at work, than strung out and sleepy going through airports on Thursday.


Thanks for all the suggestions and help.

Most likely you will need to be at your bus stop, ready to go, by 3:40 am.

Buses do come early, even during the wee hours of the morning. You need to be at the bus stop 15 minutes before the scheduled time, or you may miss the bus. If the bus shows up and no one is waiting, it will leave.

I'll be using DME for my Oct trip (only from WDW to MCO) but it's at mid morning.

So I figured it'd be a trial run to using it in March, but that early flight is the only one that actually works for my schedule and it's kinda throwing me for a loop.

I'll probably only have one bag so no big if I have to bring it along.

Thanks guys.

Little tip for those early departures:

Consider checking out a day early from your resort and scheduling a ME to the airport that night. Since security is right downstairs, you can literally roll out of bed and get into line.

We did that for a 6:15a departure recently. We checked out before we went to the park on Sunday and checked our luggage in with the concierge (but NOT with ME or the airline checkin).

We came back from the parks around 8p, sat by the pool and had a few drinks and a bite to eat. The ME was sent explicitly for us at 9:25p (only the 4 people in our party were on it). We checked in at the airport hotel, got some sleep, and rolled downstairs at 5a. Much better than getting up at 3a to catch the ME.

(Note that we called ME the night before to schedule our pickup. We asked for 9:30p, they offered 9:25p.)

I've definitely been the lone person out at the bus stop at 3, 4, or 5 in the morning sometimes! It can get a little eerie & i have been worried sometimes when busses are late, but its always worked out!!
