So yes, I had no choice but to wait on hold again in the hope that someone would be able to help - eventually.
I am aware that I can get on the ME without the luggage tags in 3 weeks, but collection my luggage to hand it off at ME defeats the whole purpose of the service for me.
And call me crazy, but if my employer can beta-test a website before releasing it shouldn't Disney be able to do the same?
Sorry you had a lot of wait time, but for future reference, if you are without your yellow ME tags, you can just give your regular luggage claim tags to the ME staff and they will collect your bags for you while you just get on the bus.
And to the posters saying that others have been rude, I think OP was a bit rude as well in stating that "Disney apologists" need not respond. Just because one has a differing view does not make them a Disney apologist. If anyone starting a thread wishes to exclude certain people from posting in it, then the thread should not be started to begin with. A public forum is open to anyone and everyone.
Have a safe and great trip, OP!
