Nope. Your DME reservation is tied to your active resort reservation. Since you won't have an active POR reservation for two days, they won't take the bags there. They could very well end up staying at MCO.
Put the AoA tags on, leave them packed, and then the day your POR reservation starts, have AoA move them over to POR. It won't be quick, but they'll get there.

The voucher book won't be "generated" and mailed out until the 45 day mark.
That's different. I've always made my DME reservation online....I have never received my tags earlier than my booklet! I always get them together.

Thank you, that's why I asked, didn't want my luggage just floating about.

Didn't search this entire thread, so not sure if my question was previously answered, but I am wondering if the Magic Express takes you only to your hotel, or if you can go to a park. Our plane lands at 9:30 and check in isnt until 3pm. I've already done online check in. So do I need to go to the hotel first? I also have magic bands so not sure if I have to go get them activated before at the hotel or not? Thanks

As far as I know ME only goes to the Resorts.

ME only goes to the resorts. You can check in before the official check-in time, but your room might not be ready yet. Just leave your luggage with Bell Services and head off to a park.

DME will only take you to your resort, but you can check in as early as 6:30 am so it won't be a problem.

Can just use the DME to go back to the airport for the trip home? We are at universal first for a few days before checking in at Pop?

Yes! We were just there in September and rented a car at the airport so we could visit family in Fort Myers. After that we went to Disney, droped off the rental, and took DME to the airport the day we went home. Easy!

No. They would be delivered to the wrong resort and, since it would be before your check-in, you run the risk of your bags being lost in the shuffle. You should call DME and request more tags for the first part of your stay.

Just realized we only got one luggage tag per person. We leave in two days. We need more. Guess I'll just have to give them my luggage claim ticket

Just called DVC with a ME question and this doesn't sound right-- we were initially at AKV/Kidani and they sent out luggage tags for ME that say Kidani. Our wait list just cleared for Jambo so our reservation is now switched. DVC changed the info in the system but is saying to still use the Kidani luggage tags. Won't that end up with our luggage going to Kidani? They say no, but this doesn't sound right to me....
