I believe Northwest is the best drop off point. Then go down to Level 1.

The hotel shuttle should be able to go to Level 1, ask the driver. If they can, ask to be dropped off at "B high numbers". They should know what you're talking about, just tell them you're catching the DME bus. That would be the easiest.

If they can't, Tyler's suggestion is the 2nd easiest

Thanks for posting this. I am still a little confused. Oh well...I am sure it will all work out.

Sorry to ask, are there a lot of buses available by Disney at the airport to quickly take you to your resort or is everything set up with departure times. Or do they wait until the buses are fully loaded.

Also your bags, if its taken care of for you, how fast do they get it to your resort and in your room?

Thanks for your help.

It takes, on average, about 70 minutes from deplaning to your resort. This time can be changed by the actual time of day you arrive into MCO. Those arriving mid-afternoon may find slightly longer waits. The buses are dispatched as needed. You may find you have to wait in the bus line for about 10 minutes if you have just missed the previous bus. They do not wait to fill the bus up....I believe they have a set time they will wait and that's it.
As far as your bag delivery goes, that's a whole different story. If your room is ready when you get to your resort, you may find that your bags arrive in your room within an hour or two...possibly up to three hours. If your room is not ready yet, then leave your carryon bags with bell services and head out to a park. Your bags should be in your room when you return. Just be sure to have whatever you will need for the first part of your day in your carryon bags.

Our flight is scheduled to arrive in Orlando at 11:00 p.m. Will ME still be able to pick up our checked luggage and bring it to our resort for delivery to our room the next morning or will we need to get it ourselves and take it on the bus with us to the resort?

As long as you put a DME luggage tag on each bag, you will have the bags delivered to your room, period. You don't need to get them yourself.

Carry on Luggage

My DH and I are planning on using ME and only taking a carry on each and not checking any luggage.
So, we just go straight from the terminal (Side A) to the Magical Express counter on Level 1 to check in? I spoke with a CM when I booked the ME and he said we can just take our bags right on the bus.
Anyone ever do this before?
TIA!!!

Yep....cross over to Side B, head on down to the lowest level, level 1, and look for the DME welcome desk. You will have no problem taking your bag(s) with you. The driver will stow them underneath the bus, and then retrieve them when you get to the resort. Have a terrific trip!!

As a matter of fact, almost everyone has done this before. Almost everyone has carry-ons when they fly. DME doesn't offer automatic delivery of carry-ons. Thus, almost everyone who takes the DME bus has carry-ons with them, know what I mean?

To add to what goofy4tink said, you can choose whether or not to take the carry-ons into the cabin of the bus or have the driver stow them in the cargo hold of the bus, but ONLY IF the carry-ons are small enough to fit under your own seat or on the overhead shelf. If they are too big, you have no choice but to have the driver stow them for you. But as soon as you arrive at your resort, the driver will "un-stow" them and you get them right back, right then and there.
