Any info is appreciated, thank you!
The information that's important on the luggage tags is your resort. The tags determine where the bags are taken after they arrive in Orlando. The flight they come in on isn't important.

The airline will put their own label on to make sure it gets on the right flight, and to the right destination.

New to ME - resort change?

I've stayed on site many times but never used ME. I'm sure someone has asked this, but I can't find it. I got my yellow tags yesterday for my trip in January, but have just changed resorts. The CM changing my ressie told me to just cross out POR and add WL, but that seems sketchy to me what with the barcodes, etc. Should I call ME directly and get new tags, etc?

Cool Lost Luggage

Hi there! Although I've been to WDW over 15 times in 16 years and have been a premium annual passholder for 7 of those years, I'm about to use DME for the first time on Dec. 12th. I'm flying MCO from San Diego with short stop overs in Los Angeles and Cleveland. Has anyone had issues with luggage being retrieved after multiple connecting flights or am I just paranoid that the yellow tag is going to be torn off by accident at one of the three airports before MCO? Hopefully the multiple connection thing wont impede DME from getting a hold of our luggage. Also, if our luggage doesn't arrive at the resort, can I call DME and find if they've located it? If not I'd have to deal with Continental directly. Less than 10 days to go....can't wait...

It shouldn't matter to DME....it does add a few more steps into the mix when you make connections. But as long as the bags get to MCO, DME will get them. When you check in at DME, upon arrival into MCO, DME CMs will ask you how many bags you checked...that way they will know how many bags to expect and to look for on your behalf.
If your bags don't make it to the resort (which doesn't happen very often at all!!) yes, DME will track them for you.

I just called and requested additional luggage tags. She said they take about seven days to arrive and we are leaving next Saturday, the 12th.
Anyone know how long they *usually* take to arrive? I know we can just keep the baggage claim tickets and go that route, but would rather have that be a last resort if possible.

Thanks!

You could call, but the CM's instructions should be fine. Just be SURE not to put any marking on any part of the bar code. This is what's scanned and what directs your luggage. It's also how Magical Express tracks each bag on its route from the airport to your room.

Not to worry. As long as you attached each tag correctly (use the whole tag, about 14" x 2", don't utilize anything horizontal that looks like a perforation; slip the tag through your luggage handle, remove ONLY the backing from the two ends of the tag, adhere the two ends together back-to-back as evenly as possible), they shouldn't come off.

Seven days from today is only Thursday. It's always possible they'll arrive sooner. On the off-chance you leave before the tags arrive, the 'show your claim check at the counter' method has worked every (as far as I know) time it's been used in the last four and a half years.

Today our WDW packet arrived for our Christmas trip... from our travel agent. It did not have luggage tags for ME. Will our ME tags arrive separate?

Yes. Check with your Travel Agent; it's more likely your DME packet will be sent there.

Help, I am confused about the Magical Express tags. I thought everyone who reserved them with their packages got them sent in the mail about 30 days prior to your trip along with your other trip materials, but my TA just told me that because I didn’t give him my flight info, they didn’t send the tags, and I would have to give my bag claim tickets to DME upon arrival and they would have to find my bags that way. This just doesn’t make sense to me, since all the other times that I have driven to Disney and therefore didn’t need the tags for air travel, the tags were always still sent to me anyway! So I don’t understand why my TA is saying I didn’t get tags because I didn’t have flight info sent in, if I’ve always gotten tags before with no flight info indicated. I really don’t feel comfortable just waiting til I get to MCO to give DME my bag claim tickets to find the bags themselves without the easily recognized ME colored tags on them—does Disney really check each piece of luggage and read the tiny numbers on the luggage tags to see if they match your claim ticket?? That seems really inefficient to me, since the whole point of those brightly colored ME tags is for easy recognition, and it also seems risky that they might not find your bag…I don’t know, I guess I’m just skeptical because it doesn’t make sense to me but perhaps I am missing something. Has anyone else done this before, not received tags and handled it at MCO? If so, how did it go for you? And most importantly, does anyone know a phone number I can call to ask for the tags myself and maybe they can still be sent to me? I’m not leaving until 12/30. Thanks so much for your help!

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but I can't find the other ME thread I was looking for. When you get off the plane @ MCO, you used th have to go down to the ME desk and check in before getting in line for the bus. I read somewhere that now, you don't go to the desk and check in, you just go straight to the bus. Is this true?
TIA!

I notice that disney says that baggage coming in on international flights should not be tagged, but instead the claim checks should be given to ME.

What about international flights where you don't need to go through customs at MCO? For example, flights from some Canadian airports and the Bahamas have pre-U.S. customs screening, so you just walk off your plane. Do these bags still not get tagged?

Bluntly? You need a new Travel Agent. Yours dropped the ball.

You should not be concerned in the least about Disney's ability to recognize and pull your luggage, even without the yellow tags*. In addition to asking for your claim checks temporarily to note the numbers, the CMs at the Welcome Center will also ask you for a description of your luggage. They may even show you a binder with scads of luggage so you can pick out which yours most resembles.

A couple of times in the last couple of days, CleveRocks (this board's expert on DME as one of its first riders ) has assured on different threads that we have NEVER had a report of someone needing to use their claim checks ever having had a problem receiving their luggage.

*you could attach a replica of the yellow tags to your luggage, or you could use some distinctive ribbon or yarn.

Thanks, I totally agree my agent dropped the ball. I just called DME myself and they told me my TA never gave them the info of my reservation, and she confirmed that they do NOT need flight info to send the ME vouchers and tags! So when I called my TA he told me that is not true and I said I don't want to argue about it, just take care of it (DME couldn't mail me the tags without the TA's written permission, otherwise the tags would go to them first). I am mad because my TA should just admit he was wrong, I've used him before and like i said I usually drive to Disney and I still get the ME tags, so clearly he just dropped the ball here on this trip and should have said something.
