We always carry a bag with an extra pair of essentials for all, so that the rest of the luggage can be left to DME . It usually does turn up within 3 hours but the one time it took longer, we really weren’t stranded as we had what we needed with us without the bother of lugging around bigger bags.

We're flying to MCO at 5am tomorrow, staying at CSR and have 4 bags to check but only received 3 yellow tags...we're flying RT w/ Southwest (which is now participating fully w/ DME -at least for our resort) . I'd like to avoid picking up the extra bag from the airport luggage pick up and head directly to the ME bus line if possible. I read somewhere that upon our check in at the airport that we only need to let the airline know we have an extra DME bag - sooo, just checking here, is this info correct? I'd hate to lose a bag and can not downsize to 3 bags....

Oops, may have posted too soon, but am in a rush since we leave in the morning I meant that I read that when we check in at the DME counter we should show them our luggage reciept and that they will take care fo teh extra bag then - my new question is, does this work or have people lost luggage b/c of this system?

You'll be fine doing it that way. I don't think I've heard of anyone losing their bags when they didn't tag them and had to show claim receipts at the DME counter. I would put something really bright and colorful on your one untagged bag though....not a red ribbon though, everyone does that. Just something that will make it stand out and make it easier for DME workers to see it.

I have some extra Disney World Tags I'll use and our 4th suitcase is an OLD hardcase so I'll do as you suggest and can add Disney Stickers!!! This should help. TKS!

Just booked a trip yesterday for next week We were told it is too late to get any disney m.e. tags or paperwork. I think they are going to fax me some kind of confirmation #. We are flying in late so I need to get my luggage anyway at the airport but do you think they will give us a hard time about using magical express? Thanks.

As long as you're in the DME system, you'll be fine. I've arrived at the checkin counter with nothing (I was very thorough and packed all my paperwork in my checked bags!!!) and they just printed me out vouchers for the bus ride. You'll be fine.

Nope. Do NOT just head to the bus lines. You need to be told by the DME CM, standing at the entrance to the checkin counter line, that you can go to the bus lines. There could be any kind of issue which would need to be dealt with at the counter. In all probability you will be sent to the bus line directly, but that's not your decision to make.

Thanks - I feel better about it now. Figured I can't be the only crazy one with such a last minute trip that we can't even get our paperwork.

My question is...I'm flying round-trip with Southwest, using DME, and staying at CBR. I know that Southwest is now participating with resort check-in, but I'm not sure its offered yet at CBR. It said it should be offered by the end of the year after some testing is done. Does anyone know if this is offered yet?

If not, please verify this is the correct process I will have to take.

On the night before we are leaving Disney, we will get an envelope from DME on our door. It will include the time the bus will pick us up at the resort (usually about 2 hours 45 minutes prior to flight). We will have to take our luggage with us on the bus, check-in at MCO, check our luggage at MCO, then board our flight. Is this correct?

We stayed at AKL last trip so I knew the process, but now that CBR doesn't participate with resort check-in with MCO, I'm not sure what to do. Please help! (Or can I check-in at CBR but I just have to check my luggage once we get there?)

CBR doesn't yet have the storage space to handle the extra luggage from Southwest passengers.

You are correct in the steps you'll need to take, with one omission: if you aren't using Early Bird Check In, you're going to want to head to Guest Services at any park, or Lobby Concierge at any resort, 24 hours prior to your flight's scheduled departure, to check in for your flight.

Thank you for clarifying that for me! Thats very helpful info to know!

Just to make sure I'm reading this right...since I'll be checking-in at the resort desk (or at the park Guest Srvcs) then when we get to MCO, we go straight to check-in our baggage & then through security.
