I got mine last week, almost exactly 30 days out...strange how these are being sent out. No rhyme or reason it would seem.

I am a DVC member staying at BWV from Sept 11-16 and I just realized that I forgot to register for DME (doh!!!)
If I register now, will I get my luggage tags in time?
If not, then what?

Booking ME for return to airport qestion

Does your trip back to MCO have to be booked before your arrival? We are renting DVC points from different people and I only had the airport pick up booked. Can we book ME for our return trip after we arrive at our resort?
Thanks!

DME and Grand Floridian

Third trip to disney coming up First trip in 2006, DME seemed very slow (long lines, several stops before GF), so in 2008 we took private transportation to the GF. I'm wondering if DME has changed or if it is still a slow way to get the vacation started? Thank so much!!

You're a month out; you have plenty of time.

There are no set routes, so you never know if your resort will be first, second or third on the route. Plan on it taking about 70/75 mins from gate to resort. Disney has streamlined the DME area....waits in lines is pretty non-existent except for the actual bus line. That can be anywhere from 2 mins to 25 mins..just depends on when you get to the line and when the last bus departed.


Here are some of my average times...
DME....60-85 mins (most around 70)
Car service....with checked bags....60 mins
Car service ....carryon only.......45 mins.

DME packet sent from Florence KY

Just got our DME packet today and noticed it was from zip code 41042, Florence, KY. I wonder if they all get sent from there or if they are regionalized based on where you live.

Did I read somewhere that ME now picks up from DTD for departures to the airport?

Disney was (or still is) running tests for guests at Port Orleans Riverside to opt for DTD pickup. So, not a full option across the resorts at this time.

switching resorts

I got my luggage tags. I leave in three weeks. If I switch from POFQ to POR can I use the same tag?

If your resort reservation remains the same, yes. If that number changes, you won't be able to. Luggage delivery is tied to the resort reservation number.

I got my packet mailed from there on July 29, for my trip starting Sept 1. Then, today? Got my packet for my Nov 7 trip, mailed from that same zip, on the 16th. I've never had my DME packet in my hands this soon!!!

This will be our 1st time using Magical Express. In our packet, it says luggage can be delivered up to 3 hours after arrival. Is that pretty accurate? We are supposed to land at MCO at 9pm; if our luggage is going to be delivered around midnight, I'm thinking we ought to just pick up our luggage at baggage claim so we'll have it with us.

Thanks.
