I think we will be pressed for time. Can I use DME to deliver my luggage? We don't need the bags until later that night anyway. Thanks!

I'll admit that I have not read this entire thread. This will be my first trip using DME. My room reservation is for myself, DH and our infant son. Will we be issued three luggage tags for DME? We are flying on Southwest so I don't have to worry about luggage fees.

Yes, I would expect three luggage tags to be sent to you. You can call to request more tags if needed.

Luggage tags are based on your reservation...so there will be a yellow tag (and voucher) for each person listed on the reservation.

If my flight lands at 10:55pm, is it possible to use the yellow tags and have my luggage delivered the next day? Obviously, I would have stuff with me that I would need that night.

That's pretty much what will happen. But, a word to the wise...those tagged bags won't be pulled before heading to the baggage carousel area. So, your tagged bags will be going around and around, out there for all to see, until they are finally pulled as 'unclaimed'. The next morning, DME people go and grab all that unclaimed stuff and then disburse it.
If it were me?? I wouldn't tag it and then go to baggage claim and get it, rather than let it be out there for all to see and have access to.

Excellent piece of info about what happens late -- I wasn't sure if they still pulled yellow tag bags after hours or not. I knew they would not be delivered late.

So sarabear as the bags will go to the carousel rather than staying behind the scenes, my opinion is I would definitely would pick them up myself and take them to the DME bus.

To the best of my knowledge, that's what happens. That's what I've been told, on numerous occasions. I haven't been back there, so can't vouch for the practice 100%. It could very possibly be that the tagged bags do get pulled but stay there, behind the scenes, until the next morning. But, since I've been told that they are sent out with all the other bags, that's what I base my answers on. I wouldn't tag the bags and then want them out in the public area...so I would just leave them untagged and get them myself if I arrived after 10pm.

We are only taking ME home. I know we won't get luggage tags, but won't we still get the ME booklet? How soon before our trip should I expect it?

Yes, you should still get the booklet. It should arrive a few weeks prior to your travel date. If it doesn't, it's still fine. You will get a notice in your room the day before you are due to checkout. You can use this as your confirmation to ride the bus back to MCO.

DME Yellow Luggage Tags

I'm sure the answer to my question is on this thread somewhere but just can't seem to find it. It's been awhile since I've done DME from the airport. Last year's trip I only used DME back to MCO. I received my itinerary packet in the mail the other day, the one that gives you all of the extra vouchers coupons and a general breakdown of your reservation before you travel. I did not receive the DME yellow luggage tags for my trip yet. 28 days an counting until I travel. Were they supposed to be in the packet with the itinerary? Or are they mailed separately? And if they are mailed separately, how many days out do they normally arrive. I need to send one to my mother who is traveling with me but she's in NC and i'm in MD.

Just curious,

Karen

On whether they are mailed separately or together, at this point I think it's possible either way that the DME info and luggage tags could be mailed with your package information. There have been reports within the last year that both have been mailed together.

But, in the past the mailings were separate (my trip last year still had separate mailings) so I suspect it's quite possible your DME mailing will come in the next few days.

If you want to make sure DME has you in the system, you can call them directly at (866) 599-0951.

Thanks for the info. DME is definitely indicated on my itinerary packet, I'll wait another week and if I don't see another mailing I'll definitely call.

Hi all, I just booked a night at Sports for August 28th, with DME included. Do you think I will get my luggage tags in time? I would have to receive them before the 25th as I leave that weekend to travel closer to the airport.

Disney tells us that DME needs 10 days to print out the tags/packet and get them in the mail to you. You might get them in time.
If you don't, you will need,to go to the DME counter and get bus vouchers printed out for each guest. You can give them your luggage claim receipts and they will send a CM to get the bags. Or, you can stop in baggage claim and get the bags on your way down to DME, and they will go beneath the bus you're riding on.
