Thank you for the information! I'm not sure because my in-laws booked the trip through a travel agent. I just asked MIL to check with them. I think she mentioned earlier that we just go to the desk, but I was thinking that didn't sound right. They won't have an issue with us wanting to go on a different day than we arrive, right?

As long as you are listed on the resort reservation, and that reservation is in effect, and you have reserved your ride ahead of time...yes.

We might have a flight arriving at MCO at 9:30 PM in Nov. That is close to the 10 PM time when ME stops transporting the luggage for the day. Should we pick up our luggage at bag. claim and transport it with us on the bus?

Magalex-
You would Probably be okay, but just to be on the safe side, I would pick it up and take it on the bus with me.

Magalex - I would tag the luggage, and if your plane arrives on time, or before 10, let DME take care of it. If your plane arrives at or after 10, go to baggage claim and pick it up yourself.

I just got my DME baggage tags today. I have a question. If we are just checking one bag, will they know and look for just one?

Yes. As part of the check-in process (whether at the counter or with a free-standing CM with a hand-held device), you'll be asked how many bags you checked-and-tagged.

But even if they don't do that, then they won't be "looking for" any of your bags ... they pull ALL DME-tagged bags from the rest of the luggage and send it on its way, whether they are "expecting it" or not. If it's tagged, it'll get to you.

Help!

Hello!

We are flying into MCO on Aug 3 (5:11AM). We bought out tickets through Delta - but it is operated by Alaska (which means we are on an Alaska plane). Here is the problem. When I called to book Magical Express - they have no record of the arriving flight number (a Delta flight #). Therefore, they can't issue the luggage tags or the transportation booklet.

The cast member reassured me we would be on the manifest and that we could get a ride and just give the check in desk our tags - but I'm nervous I'll get there and that won't work.

I have gone on line and looked to see if the there is an Alaska flight number - but couldn't find one!

Can anyone out there ease my worries?!

Thanks!
Tracy

I find it hard to believe they won't issue you tags without a flight number. When I book hotel and book DME, I rarely know what my flights are, so I just tell them I don't have flight numbers yet. I usually don't book flights till after my DME tags arrive, and I then confirm my return flight at the desk.

I booked last year without flight info. Updated my profile with the flight info before the tags were delivered. The tags did not have any flight info. At the chek in desk they recorded the return flght time.

Do you have your confirmation e-mail? See if there's a Delta flight with that number. If you still can't find the flight, CALL DELTA.

Delta would be the one to contact. In any case...even if you can't find a flight number (which would be extremely unusual), you should be able to get your packet and tags. I have had my booklet with completely wrong arrival info...it presented no problem at all.
But, call Delta, if you can't find a flight number on your confirmation email, and talk to them.

Thanks!

Thank you to all of you for the advice. Our tags arrived today - strange but true!

The cast member had told me that I wouldn't get them - I did the happy dance when I saw them in the mail!!!

OK, I just want to clear up a couple of things, first time DME user here:

I have my tags for luggage, my booklet which I keep on me for the trip to our resort.

We are staying at YC, and have a departure flight at 4:30 p.m. I know that DMe will schedule our departure bus time about 3 hrs prior to our flight.

BUT: When we get up that morning and are ready to check out and maybe hit a last day park or downtown disney, what are the steps I need to follow. I already have EBCI for Southwest departure, so I think I'm supposed to pick up my boarding passes at the airport. Now I check out and where does my luggage go? Do I need the same booklet that I used for the first DME pickup or will they give me another one? Do I then have to get my luggage from wherever YC will hold it and get in on the bus myself? or do they do this while I'm away?
