There is a direct phone to DME....866-599-0951. But, they much prefer it if you call whomever you booked your room through. DME sometimes won't even talk to you until about 3 weeks prior to your departure for MCO.
So, give whomever you booked your resort stay with. They will take all your info and then hand it off to DME just before you leave.
As for who gets what...the person who is the primary person on the reservation (the one making the reservation) will get the DME info packet with yellow luggage tags for everyone listed on the reservation. It will be up to that person to get everyone else their luggage tags before departure. DME/WDW will not send out individual info packets.

Better call CRO right now ~ but may not have time to get the luggage tags across the US in time for the flights.

Thank you, Diane!

You may have the time. DME will most likely send out the order for printing of your booklet/tags pretty quickly. Then when you get the tags, send them to wherever as quickly as you can afford. You have time yet.

Is USAirways still a participating airline at the Poly? I know they were running a test phase, but wanted to know if they are still there.

We are staying at Pop Century; our flight out of Orlando is at 4:30 with Jetblue. What time will the ME pick us up from the hotel to head off to the airport? thanks in advance.

ABout 3 hours in advance, +/- 15 minutes or so.

So expect your assigned time to be between 1:15 and 1:45 p.m.

Eric's timing is spot on. Just be careful you don't cut it too close. If your ADR is at 11:05, you can assume you'll be done eating by noonish, then it could take you a bit to get to MK to get the bus back to POP. Be sure to plan on it taking at least 45 mins, could be more.
You want to be able to be at the DME bus stop, bags in hand, at least 15-20 mins before the time you were given. That time is the time the bus is scheduled to pull out..you want to be there with time to spare. If you have to go to luggage services to retrieve carryon bags, it could take 20 mins..plan accordingly.

If it were me, yes, that's what I would do. I like to have the few hours before DME pickup time pretty clear...just in case. Besides, I hate having to watch my time....makes for a stressfull meal.

We would try to change it...like to have enough time so we are not watching the clock and no rushing.

This reminded me of a change I need to try to make for the same reason - thanks!

I guess I will try to change it to 10am. We will still be able to "sleep in" compared to every other day, lol.

We are leaving in 11 days and just received our packet from AAA. INside there was the booklet that lists all the travelers and their flight information. My MIL is traveling seperately but staying in our room. INside the booklet it listed myself, my husband, my daughter and my mother in law as flying jetblue. Then it listed my son (2yo) alone on southwest. It is really my mil who is flying southwest alone. The agent penned in the correct info over it in the booklet. Does this sound okay or should I call DME and check everything?
