I am doing a Land/Sea DCL Package with transportation. My question... The last trip we used DME, our tags were yellow. With this land/sea trip, the tags are trimmed in blue with DCL on them and the resort name, our names, and our stateroom number. Do they still work the same as the yellow tags. When we get off of our SW flight, do we still just go down to the DME buses and expect our luggage at the resort? Or, should I be expecting yellow tags in a separate package?

Question Very early flight

We have a 6:15 a.m. flight. Does Magic Express still pick up from the resort 3 hours ahead, so 3:15 a.m., or is it a little later, being so early (no traffic, not busy at airport yet, fewer people on ME, etc.)? Thanks in advance - Maureen

3 hours +/- about 15 minutes is the standard at all times.

We would like to rent a car. Can we still send our luggage to the resort using the yellow tag.

TIA

Disney says no. But there have been many reports of people doing exactly what you want to do. The only problem might be if the airline misdirects, or loses, any of your luggage. If you haven't checked in with DME at their counter, before boarding the bus, they won't know there is luggage missing! You could get to your resort via your rental car, check in, and thinking that your bags will be in your room later on, you would go off to a park for the day. You return, later that evening, tired but happy, only to find some, or worse yet, all, your bags missing. Now, it's hours later, hard to track those bags.
So....do what you feel works best for your family. Just be advised that tagging your checked bags for transport with DME and then going off and renting a car, is not how Disney meant the system to work.

when do you need to contact Disney to book ME? I called in February and they said it was too early. (going in aug) and... since we are staying at 2 diff. resorts.. one being a DVC via.. renting points.. does the DVC owner we are renting from need to book our return trip back to the airport?

Did you call DME directly? I don't think they really like to do the bookings. Call whomever you booked your resort stay with...the first resort you'll be at. They can add DME to your reservation. When you get to your DVC resort, you can make your return DME reservations. The DVC owner can make those for you if you choose. But, it's just as easy to do it yourself at the resort when you get there. They need only a day or so ahead of time to book you on the return bus.

DME doesn't even have access to the reservations system more than 60 days into the future.

So if you call DME directly to make or change a reservation for more than 2 months from now, they won't be able to help you. If you're that far from your trip, call the Disney Reservations Center at the plain old 407-W-DISNEY number.

Wrong resort on tags

Received my tags today via my TA, but they have the wrong resort name listed on them (we changed resorts about 10 days ago). TA said that I should cross out the wrong resort with a sharpie, and write in the correct one because DME will not reissue the tags. Does this sound correct? It has me a little worried!

yes that is correct. They did that to me in Dec. and we just crossed out the wrong Resort and wrote in the correct one. We didn't change resorts at all they just messed up when printing them.

Don't worry you will be fine. Have a wonderful Trip.
what are you dates??? I will be there with a friend April 20th - 25th.

Be careful when crossing out the 'old' resort name. Do not mess with that bar code...that's what's important. DME has the correct resort listed, even though it won't show on your tags. But, the bar code is what will tell the baggage people where to send the bags. So..you don't want that to be printed over, or messed with.

Just adding to goofy4tink's correct answer ...

Pretend the barcode is actually your reservation number, and pretend instead of scanning the barcode, a CM typed your reservation number into a computer and learned from that what resrt you're staying at. That's exactly what happens within the computer system. Your tags will get scanned and will be routed to the current, correct resort. You cross out the old resort name as a "just in case" sort of thing.
