My question is this:
If i let them p.u. my bags do i still have to get on same bus or is there something that goes right to the parks? Thnx in advance.
The DME buses only run to the resorts. No direct to park service. In order for the delivery window for your bags to start ticking you have to check in to your resort. They deliver your bags within 3-4 hours of checking in to the resort.

Ok so if I decide to pick up my bags myself, I can still board the ME bus to my resort and then take my luggage from the bus to check in to the resort. Is this correct? Since our plane arrives at 8pm I plan just to hit the resort and relax. I don't want to risk waiting for pjs until 2am nor do I want to pack them in a carry on. Thoughts are greatly appreciated!

You need to pack everything you'll need for the first 24 hours in your carry on. Trust me, luggage does get misdirected and if you think that waiting a couple of hours is bad, try waiting a couple of days.

In any case, yes to can take your luggage with you and store it under the bus, but be sure to tip the driver a couple of bucks per bag.

Yes.

You also need to know that by picking up your own luggage, you'll add at least 30 mins to your trip before boarding DME.

I would just pack PJ's in carry-ons.
