More than one flight IN

Please forgive me if this question has been asked, but with 29 pages I was getting cross-eyed trying to find this out.

My party is arriving at MCO on 2 different flights.

Can the first party arriving wait for the second party before getting on the bus or do we have to leave right away and wait at the resort.


Thank you in advance for your help.

Yes, it is free. It can be booked by calling whomever you booked your resort reservation with.

That's no problem. You aren't assigned to any one particular bus. I would say that if the second party is arriving within an hour of the first group, then, sure wait around for them. I know that I like to get to my resort rather than be at the airport. When I went down in Dec, we had a friend who was supposed to arrive about 30 mins after we did, so we were going to wait for her and ride the bus together. But, her flight got delayed and she wasn't arriving for over 90 mins...we went on without her and met up at the resort.

I'm going to FL in June and I'm confused about how the Magical Express works. I know I used it last year when I went in June but we didnt check our bags with DME. This time we'll be checking our bags with DME. I'm confuzzled about the whole thing. HELP!!!

if you are checking your bags at your home airport with the DME tags attached, all you have to do is get off your flight in Orlando and go the Welcome Center to check into the Desk. Disney will take care of the rest for you on the luggage.

I've also used DME before, but I have a question for our upcoming trip:

We will not be flying back home until about 7pm, so we plan on going to the park on our last day.

Can you catch a DME bus at the parks or do you need to go to a hotel to catch one?

Not only any hotel, but your hotel. The only place you can catch a DME bus back to the airport is the WDW resort you are checking out of that day.

Thanks so much! I thought that if it didn't leave from the park, we could catch it at the nearest hotel.

Okay, another question. What do we do with our luggage that last morning before we head to the parks. Can we go ahead and leave it at the DME check in desk, or what?

Have Bell Services store your bags for you.

Just to clarify, there's no such thing as DME desk at the resorts. There is a Resort Airline Check-in desk, but RAC is a separate service from DME. The people at the RAC desk truly have nothing to do with DME, and have no responsibilities for DME luggage or DME passengers. I know it might seem like it's all part of the same thing, but it isn't.

I wouldn't worry too much about it. I would just cross off his incorrect last name and put in the correct one. It shouldn't make a difference in any case.

I used DME on my most recent trip to WDW and it worked great. I love it! Now my question is:
If I just do a Disney Cruise (not a land/sea package) can I use DME to go to Port Canaveral?

Thanks,

Unfortunately, no.

DME is strictly for service between MCO and WDW owned-and-operated resorts.

DCL has its own bus service, but it's not free. Depending on the number of people in your party, it may be cheaper for you to arrange private transportation like a car service.

Thanks for the reply. Well, if I take a cruise it will just be me going. So, it shouldn't be too bad.
