We got our DME stuff today. However, we did not recieve anything for my sister who is arriving a day later than us. Does she need the same voucher we have (the one that's in the booklet) in order to check in at MCO when she arrives? The CM I spoke to when adding her flight info said all she'd need is her ID. I'm a little confused.

As long as your sister is on your reservation, she will be able to go right to the DME counter and check in. They will ask her name, and possibly for an ID. Then, they will print her out a voucher to use on the bus.
But, she obviously won't have yellow tags for her checked bags. She will either have to get them herself, from baggage claim, or give the claim receipts to DME at the desk and a description of the bags and DME will take care of them for her.

Jeany,

I truly don't mean to offend or insult you, but I just gotta ask ...

In at least 2 other threads, you yourself posted that DME is free. You were cheering about it, and everyone agreed with you. So why are you now asking IF it's free? Are you joking with us? If not, please feel free to PM me and I can suggest some memory strategies.

I need to know because it wasn't me! Because my mom wanted to know so she don't get worried to pay! If you understand! CleveRocks! It's not a joke! My mom needs to know this will be our first time use the DME!

thanks for the info! I can't wait to use this DME!

different resort

so what if you don't want to go to where you luggage is supposed to go. My DS is coming in several days after we get there. The family will probably be in the Magic Kingdom area. Is it ok for him to take the DME to say Grand Floridian instead of Saratoga Springs? We still want his luggage to go to SSR, but we don't want to have to go all the way over to SSR to meet him or him have to get to the MK area when he could just go to a MK resort. Is there a problem with him going to an alternate resort? Does he need to do anything at the check in at MCO?

Although there's always a chance that he might find a sympathetic cast member who would let him board a different bus, you absolutely can't rely on them breaking a Disney rule. The policy is that you can only take the DME bus to/from the resort where you're a registered guest.

After you check-in at the DME counter at MCO, you get led to your proper bus queue, and when it's time you get escorted from the queue to the bus itself.

I seriously doubt your DS will be able to do this. His voucher will give his resort, and that's the bus he will get on. It will take about another 30 mins or so for him to get to MK from SSR.

Rumor hath it that Disney is working on a program where you can go to a different place other than your resort. But, to date, that hasn't happened. It would be a mess if they started allowing guests to get on whatever bus they wanted. The buses to the resorts with park access would be full, while the other buses would be standing there, waiting for guests to appear.

DME is a wonderful thing, but it isn't a 'magical' system that gets everyone to where they want to be....various resorts, parks, etc.

DME Question (Long Sorry)

Okay we have a trip booked Jan 17th-24th. We have decided to fly down late (getting in at 11:40pm) the night of the 16th and possibly stay at the Hotel at the airport. How would that work with the DME first thing the next morning? How do you give Disney your flight time for pick up when you get in the day before? Or would it be easier to book a "room only" at the resort that we are staying at the night before our vacation starts and just get there really late? Please let me know what you think. Thanks for any help or advice that you can give.

You have a couple choices...
You could book that arrival night at your resort (room only) and then take the bus there.
Or, you can stay at the airport hotel and take the DME the next morning. But, you will have to keep your bags with you..no tagged bags if you do it that way.
If it's possible to book a night at your resort, for arriva night, that's what I would do. Then, you can tag your bags and forget about them. Take a carryon bag, packed with essentials for that first night, and take the bus to your resort.

Thanks for the quick reply. If for some reason we do choose to stay at the airport, how to we give Disney our flight information to get picked up the morning after we arrive since we really don't have a flight number. Can you just show up at the desk in the morning with our bags to get on DME? I thought you had to have a voucher or something? Again thanks!

As long as you have made a reservation with DME, you're good to go. You can give them flight info for a flight that comes in that morning, about the same time that you will be arriving, but you don't have to.
Just get up that morning, take your luggage with you, to the DME checkin counter..Side B, level 1. You will be asked about your return flight info, then they will stamp your vouchers (they are in your info packet that they mail out to you). You will be directed to the appropriate bus and your luggage will be stowed underneath your bus...and off you go to your resort.

It's important to call DME to get your yellow transportation tags, once you get your final confirmation with your souvie tags and vouchers. I didn't realize that this was an important step. I have 14 days till we leave and DME made it seem as if it's too late to get the tags. But, not to fear as there is a way to make it work out.
