What desk? Guest Service inside or is there a desk outside for this purpose? I never recall seeing a desk outside but we are usually in a rush to get to the bus. If there is a desk outside I will correct my info in previous posts on this thread.

I know you didn't...you just said desk and I was trying to clarify since the discussion earlier in the thread was if there was a desk outside.

Thank you!

I think I've see a portable podium outside but it was a long time ago before on board check in started. You could check your luggage for the airline after going through customs at the port. The luggage then went on the bus with you. The podium may have been where they had a computer to print out the airline luggage tags.

I don't remember anyone checking anything, but we had a porter with us and he just took us where we needed to go.

There was definitely a CM directing traffic when we got off last September. There weren't a lot of people heading back to the Boardwalk so we were put on a van with two other couples.

No one checked anything for us either and I thought that was very strange. A CM directed us to the POR bus and we walked on.

I think the code is "AP" for "airport to port" and "PA" for "port to airport" -- at least that has been a consistent code on my KTTW for my cruises

At the bottom or top of your KTTW card, there may be the letters P, A or R. P means port, A means airport and R means resort. All the CM is looking for when you leave the ship is an R which is transportation to one of the resorts or A which is transportation to the airport. This assumes you've purchased them in advance and it was printed on your card when you checked in. That's why no tickets are required. Getting on the right bus is left up to you although they usually ask.

I had a very helpful CM tell me and show me that once at the ME pickup at MCO when I asked about why I didn't have any transfer tickets for the cruise after our WDW stay.

^^^This^^^. We've never had any sticker used and have used the transfers from the port (Canaveral) three times both to the airport and a resort. I'm pretty sure the P, A, and R codes are mentioned on the DCL site under your reservation in the transfers part? I actually just saw it a few days ago and I think that's where it was.

Heather

Edited to add - the info might be in the cruise documents packet since I just received my latest one Monday and was reading through it.

Last time we were at Port Canaveral, there was a cast member checking KTTW cards, then directing people to the correct bus.

Last time, we walked off with our own bags, and STILL got on the DCL bus back to MCO, without anyone checking. (Yes, we paid for the transfers, but I wonder if anyone ever gets on WITHOUT paying.)

The code is printed on the KTTW (has never been a sticker). You may not notice someone checking because they only ask to see one person's card (I guess they assume you've paid for everyone). After all these cruises, my sister walked toward the bus first last time and they asked to see her card. She made a comment afterward that they must have tightened things up because they never asked for her card before. I just laughed because for years they were just checking mine and she never knew!

Someone poster further back that you get a sticker if you purchase the transfers last minute from the guest services desk onboard...they then put a sticker on your KTTW to show you paid for transfers.

This happened to my parents and we've been wondering about it ever since. This thread is helpful.
