hoping someone knows the answer to this one...

we are arriving orlando airport in the late evening february 5, and plan to stay overnight at an airport hotel with just overnight bags, then take DME to WDW the following morning

will DME retrieve the checked luggage and bring to WDW and hold overnight? or must we lug the luggage back and forth from the airport and the airport hotel?

Not an answer on what they will or won't do, but rather, an opinion...take your luggage with you to you airport hotel.

I have heard reports that if you stay at the hotel that is within the airport, the Hyatt I believe, you can hand them your luggage that morning and they will get it to DME. BUT....I am not 100% sure about that.
If you tag your bags, and arrive after 10pm, your bags will go to the public baggage claim area, and then taken off the carousel much later...the bags will go around and around, out in the open. They are now out there for anyone to see, and take. If the bags are still there later? Someone will come and get them and put them in an office area, then first thing in the morning, DME workers will come and collect them.
So..take your chances. I would just leave the bags untagged, get them myself, and then take them to the hotel. See if the hotel will get them to DME. Otherwise, you will need to take them with you, on the DME bus, to your resort.

thanks again to goofy4tink for the info! Called Liberty today and the person I spoke with said they should have arrived by now so she was going to call DME and have the tags sent to me. I have 19 days so they should get here in plenty of time

I won't be getting any luggage tags since I live outside US/Canada but I do have a question. My flight makes a layover in Atlanta, where I'll be going through customs. Is my connection flight to Orlando considered a local flight which will make me eligible for DME to collect my bags from baggage claim and delivering them to my resort? I'll be flying Delta.

I 'believe' that since you will go through customs in Atlanta, you should be able to have DME pick up your bags in Orlando. Any non-domestic fliers have better advice??

I am in a similar situation. I clear immigration at Houston and fly Houston Orlando. I understand that I won't get the DME tags. How do I ensure that my luggages get picked up by DME? When I went wDW in 2007, we received those tags even though we are international visitors. So this without DME tag thingy for international travelers is new to me.

Anyone that doesn't get their DME tags can just show the DME CMs, at checkin, their baggage claim receipts...the CM will take down all the info. You will also be asked how many bags you checked and what they look like. I always put something really 'out there' on my bags so they are easy to identify. Then, they will send a CM to baggage claim to get the bags and ship the bags to the appropriate resort for you. Many, many guests have done it this way and it has worked out wonderfully.

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll ask the flight crew at the Atlanta airport this question, they will definitely know if it's a domestic or an international flight.

My DME luggage tags haven't come yet?

I got my packet of coupons and our hotel vouchers about two weeks ago. Now we only have two weeks to go and no yellow tags yet. When do they usually arrive? I am in Canada but flying out of the USA but mail delivery takes a bit longer. And my TA is away until a few days before we leave! Can someone please reassure me?

I'm pretty sure that they don't send the DME tags to Canada.

I never received the second set of tags I requested from DME, and we leave tomorrow morning.

Would I be okay scanning the one tag I have, printing a copy, and using that on the second bag? I figure if I use clear packing tape to protect it, it should hold up just as well as the one they sent.

TIA!

I saw that they send one tag 'per person.' Can anyone confirm that a kid is considered a person and you will receive a luggage tag for each child the same as an adult? Just thought it was weird recording the kids separate from the adults on the registration from ME online.

Yes, each person on the reservation, adult or kid, receives a yellow luggage tag sticker. For example, 2 adults + 2 kids = 4 luggage tags sent.
