Nope, won't matter at all. My dd's and I are arriving earlier than my dh this summer. In fact, we are arriving on a Friday, going to the Dolphin, using a car service. My dh is arriving on Sunday, and leaving on Wednesday, at BWV...we will have moved there Sunday morning. We aren't using DME but he is, both ways. We do that quite often....some get there after the checkin day, others leave before the checkout day...no problem.
You can send him his luggage tag as soon as you get the packet. There should be a yellow luggage tag, with his nam on it, in that packet. Then, he can tag his bag, and head off to the DME counter. You should probably send his voucher as well...better safe than sorry. That way, he will have it in hand, just in case there is any question. He can give his departure info to them when he checks in at DME counter.

Sorry to ask yet another question that might have been answered previously but I read 30+ pages and didn't see the answer. Is it possible to take the DME from the airport to the hotel 4 days prior to the arrival date on the Reservation? My Aunt will be staying with my cousin for a few days before her Pop century stay at a non-Disney hotel but she wanted to be able to ride the Bus from the airport to the Hotel. Thank you

No, your DME ride is tied to your resort reservation. You can only ride the bus to the resort, and back to the airport, one time each, on days that fall from the start of your reservation to the last day of said reservation.
Your aunt will have to find another way to her offiste resort. Now, she could head back to MCO on the first day of her POP reservation and take the DME bus then, but not before.

Please forgive me - I cannot go through all the posts to see if this has been covered, but we leave for Disney on May 17th, how soon will we receive our DME tags?

You can expect your mailing from Disney's Magical Express any time from 3-6 weeks prior to your trip. You're right around that outer rim right now.

Getting nervous!

We are just a little over 3 weeks until our vacay.

Booked through a TA..(but seemed like I did most of the work myself)...
I hadn't heard anything from her in the last few weeks so I went into her office. She had my resort confirmations, but was still waiting on DME tags. I told her that we'd need more than 5, since we're flying Southwest (2 free checked bags per person!)... we're bringing a 6th bag w/ food and misc. stuff. She said that she would email them requesting extra tags...

I'm nervous about this...She hasn't been the quickest responder and if at all possible I'd like to not deal with the hassle of one bag with no DME tag.

Should I just call DME myself? Or, since it was booked thru my TA, is she the only one that can handle this?

DME will have your reservation since you are within 60 days. You can call them directly, and they should be able to send you the extra tags.

My sister and I are on the same confirmation number. The reservation is booked in my name. Will all the luggage tages come to me, then I will need to mail her some? Can I have hers mailed directly to her?
Thanks,

You'll have to mail hers to her. Disney doesn't split up mailings for a single reservation.

my fam will be going to wdw in a few weeks, it's myself, DH and my 2 kiddos. My DH is arriving at a later time than us and renting a car to drive to the hotel. He won't be using ME, he will get his suitcase from baggage claim himself and take it with him in the rental. Myself and the kids WILL be taking ME, will they allow just the 3 of us to take it or do all 4 of us listed on the reservation have to be present? Also the hotel res. and subsequently the ME reservation is in my DH's name, will this be a problem if he is not with us? Just making sure we won't have any issues using ME without DH.

Nope, won't be an issue. At least not with DME. My dh and dd have arrived at a time other than my arrival time with no issues.
My only concern would be at resort checkin...I'm not sure if your dh has to be the one to actually checkin there...in person.
