When I changed it to a package in May, at the same time, I also let them know that my guests and I would be flying in to MCO from JFK, and gave them my flight info. Two weeks ago, they mailed my package info with my vouchers displaying all of the new information correctly, but still received no DME tags.

I called up Disney. After the CM investigated with DME on the phone, she found out that DME for some unknown reason mixed up the mailing address - even though the address on the reservation was clearly the correct one. She had it corrected and resent to me. The tags arrived yesterday. But... it has the wrong info on it. It has my name, and the additional tags have my guests names on it too. But, has my original reservation info on it... Saying Contemporary w/ the room-only reservation number on it. But above the room-only reservation number is also my current package reservation number.

Should I not even use them?? I don't want our bags to get mixed up and sent to the contemporary. Or since my new package reservation number is on it too, should I just scratch out where it says "Contemporary" & the old reservation number? The DME luggage vouchers also say Contemporary on it.

Uggggh... help??
If you have enough time before your trip, you can ask them to mail you new tags. If not, don't worry about it. Simply use a pen to make a correction to the resort name. Poly and Contemporary are both in the same delivery zone, so other information on the tag will still apply. All the luggage handlers are going to look at is the color/code in the Mickey head (which tells them Magic Kingdom area). Bell Services at the resort will look for your name and confirmation number.

My cousin is arriving at MCO a little over an hour ahead of me, so she was going to take ME to our resort (ASMo) and check in. She's the first person listed on the reservation, so all the ME info such as luggage tags and the "ticket" to get on the bus will all be mailed to her. I know they have a desk down where you board the buses...so here's my question. Can I go to the desk and they'll get me squared away for boarding? Also, to throw a wrench in the plans, my name is misspelled on the reservation (they have my last name beginning with a P instead of a T.) Will that pose any problems??

Oh...and I tried calling ME to add my flight info, but they won't talk to me since I didn't make the reservation...even though I had the reservation number
Just don't want to get lost on the previous page Can anyone help with this?

Yes you can, and no it won't - but you can have your cousin call and try to correct the spelling if you want. Or you can call. Try the 'sample' spelling - you know - if your name is Parrot and they have it as Tarrot, say, "P as in pig" or some other easily-understood 'p' word.

I know from experience, P, T, and other letters sound alike - especially on the phone

Thanks. I usually spell it out with words, but I wasn't the one making the reservation this time. Good to know I'll be all set to go! Thanks again!

I received four DME vouchers for our family, which is the right number, but for some reason instead of my husband's name on one voucher and mine on the other, they have my name on two voucher (and the correct kids names on the others). Will this matter when we check in for a bus, or will they just scan the four tags and not pay attention to the actual names?

I don't think it matters.. They never look at the names.

I agree that it probably doesn't matter for the DME booklet. However, if it's wrong there, it might be wrong on your main reservation. And it will matter with that.

I suggust you log onto http://www.mydisneyreservation.com with your confirmation number, or call Disney, and make sure the names are correct on your reservation. If you get it fixed ahead of time, it could save you some time at check-in.

Thanks for the responses. I did confirm that the names on the actual hotel reservation are correct, so hopefully we'll be ok.

Not intentional. DME and Disney reservations are two distinct operations. They don't usually end up coming at the same time. DME is usually 4 weeks prior to travel.

My family and I are booked on the Disney Dream in 2011. I've got the DME included now but saw some reasonable alternatives (I could save almost $150 for the family of 5). If I choose a DME alternative, will my bags still be brought to my cabin?

You don't have Disney's Magical Express booked. DME brings people only between the airport and their Disney resort ... it has nothing to do with Disney Cruise Line. You booked a DCL transfer, which you paid for ... DME is free.

I have no idea how anything works with DCL and luggage, I just know that DME has nada to do with DCL ... they both have Mears as a subcontractor and they sometimes interchange buses, but otherwise the services themselves are unrelated.

Booked through Travelocity... DME Q

I booked through travelocity but followed the link to book my DME reservation. This was about 3 weeks ago. We leave for Disney 3 weeks from now. Should I already have my tags? Should I call ME and check on things? Thanks!

Magical express

We used the magical express and it was great. All we had to do was bring our carryons on the bus and our luggage was put in our room a few hours later. We arrived in the early evening, went to eat, and when we got back to our room, the luggage was there waiting for us.

I just upgraded from Pop to CR and we arrive this Thursday. The agent told my TA that I should use my Pop yellow tags and just cross out Pop and write CR that once they get scanned, they will see the correct location in their system.
Is this correct?

Also, should I change the AK area symbol to MK symbol?
