This is the first I've heard of not using tags. Is this new for UK visitors now?

Apparently so. When I booked it online it said it wouldn't send a pack out to non-US addresses. They used to, because we got sent tags both times we used it.

Other people have said on here too. Always had great service previously, but now they are relying on descriptions (obviously combined with the name on the luggage), I'm wondering if there's a chance of ending up with the wrong case.

You will also give them your luggage clain tickets. It's done all the time and I've never heard of anyone not getting their bags.

It's been that way for several years.

My husband works for an airline, so he and my daughter are flying stand-by in March. We didn't make DME reservations for them, since we don't know when they will arrive. In the past, we've just retrieved our luggage, then went to DME, explained the situation and got on the bus. But now, I'm reading that maybe they can just give their baggage claim tickets to DME, and not have to get their bags themselves? Even without having prior DME reservations?

Your husband and your daughter have been very, very lucky. DME policy is that they can not transport anyone who does not have a DME reservation. They are supposed to be directed to the Mears shuttle desk.

Sure, just don't put the yellow tags on them!

Perhaps this has already been answered, but do I need to link my Magical Express reservation to MDE? I couldn't figure out where to do it if I am supposed to. We have always just had them scan the booklet that comes in the packet.

Thanks!

Four of us are travelling down together and have a rental car, so no ME to AKV.
DH is leaving earlier, and wants to take ME for the return flight, the rest of us will not.

How do I arrange this?

Just call DME and make a reservation for him.

It's not able to do done on MDE, which I think is silly. I was able to do it online at mydisneyreservation.com but some people say that doesn't work for them and they have to call in

Question

I have scanned through several pages and didn't find the answer to my question.


I received my yellow luggage tags and booklet/voucher last week being 60+ days out. I didn't receive my souvenir ID luggage tags in the packet.

I am booked through a conference and I made my ressies through MyDisneyMeetings.com. Could this be the reason why??
