DME only has access to your resort reservatin info 60 days prior to arrival. If you call before that, DME itself won't be able to help you.

You can always call 407-W-DISNEY to make your DME reservation, but if you want to talk to DME CMs, then wait until 60 days out.

I just spoke with a DME representative and she said "USAIR has just joined on to be a paricipating airline at all resorts where resort check-in is available" What does everyone think? Should I trust this and book with USAIR? Has anyone had experience with doing a resort check-in with USAIR?

Thanks for a quick reply.....I am hoping to book flights today

We just returned from POR and we flew US Air. We were able to check-in our bags for our flight home.

Does anyone know if Spirit Air has the resort bag check? I haven't heard it mentioned.

Thanks.

We are flying AirTran for the first time. They either let you choose your seat in-advance (for a fee) or you are allowed to choose it 24 hours in-advance when you check-in (for free).

Can my DH (he's staying home this trip) check us in and choose seats for us AND still have RAC print boarding passes for us on the morning of our flight?

Please read the first post in this thread.

Basically, you need to make a reservation for Disney's Magical Express.

You will receive paperwork and special luggage tags in the mail. You put one of these luggage tags on each bag you will check with US Airways (you'd do this at home).

Go to the airport. Check your bags with US Airways like normal. WHen you land in Orlando, skip baggage claim. Go to the Disney Welcome Center (they'll mail you a map). They'll tell you which bus to go to. You'll get a ride to your resort. When you get to your resort, you check-in at the front desk just like normal (DME does NOT check you in to your resort).

About 3 hours after you check-in at your resort, your DME-tagged bags will arrive at your room. They'll be brought inside your room whether you're in there or not.

The only way that your airline matters is for the way home. Some people can check-in for their departing flight in their resort lobby (and get their luggage taken care of at that point); these people are on "participating airlines." When they get off the bus at the airport, they don't have to check-in with their airline, since they already have boarding passes -- they just go right to the gate.

Other people have to bring their bags to the DME bus themselves; the driver loads the bags under the bus. They get their bags back when the bus drops them off, then they have to check their bags with their airline, like normal.

Yes, you can. DME and Resort Airline Check-in are 2 separate entities. You are free to choose to use one or the other or both.

Am I right in assuming that if my AirTran flight leaves at 7:00am I will not be able to use RAC? Thanks!

Correct.

RAC desks open at 5:00 a.m.; the transaction must be complete by 3 hous before flight time. Therefore, anyone with a flight departing before 8:00 a.m. simply can't use RAC.

So is there usually a mile long at 5 am for the RAC? My flight is at 8:20. Should I even bother with the RAC or am I going to waste precious time by going to RAC?
