So this means you have to take your own luggage to the hotel?
Instead of the ME bringing them for you (with the vouchers).

No they will still bring them for you. When you check in for your flight and they attach the sticky bard codes from your luggage tags onto the back of your boarding pass, keep it handy and you just hand that over at the ME desk when you check in there. I don't care to wait for my luggage to arrive after me though so I find it easy enough to just grab the bags and take them with me, but you can certainly get ME to do this for you if you prefer

Just bear in mind it can take up to four hours as I have read for your luggage to catch up with up. That would be too long for me as we arrive quite late as it is.

I would personally take my bags with me onto the ME.

for the pp that asked about return times etc.
The time you are given for return is the bus you should take. Disney do not as a rule let you get a later bus than what you have stated on your notice. You can be offered to take an earlier bus if you are at the stop when one arrives but that is fairly rare as the buses especially at busy times can be full. It's 4hours before your flight that you will be collected. I know that seems like a long time but you might not be the last pick up on the route, traffic issues etc plus security at the airport can take a while so that 4 hours can be eaten up quickly. I know from being at OKW that the bus has been to POR and PORFQ before it gets to OKW and it stops at SSR after that. We got held up at SSR because a couple of people were late for the bus (one of their party was there) they just made it before the driver was about to leave. Harsh I know but he did have a bus with other passengers to consider.
It really is a great service though and takes a lot of the hassle out of getting to your resort. Plus it's free
Lovely, thanks for the advice! It really does seem like a great service! :D

No worries we have used it every on site trip and its been a great service although I think I can speak for everyone that its the miserable express on the way home and yes I m one of those people who give the evil eye to those arriving when I'm leaving
