I soon discovered that I would not be able to go to the parks on my departure day and get back to my hotel for Mears to the airport without taking an expensive cab back to my hotel. So, I arranged my Mears to the airport from the Contemporary. I took the hotel shuttle to the Magic Kingdom and took my roller bag and bookbag with me. My roller bag was too big for the lockers, but they stored it in a room and gave me a claim check for it. They charged the same price as a large locker without the key deposit. When I left for the day, I picked up my bag, and took the monorail to the Contemporary, and caught Mears to the airport.
However, to the original poster, let the RAC desk and bell services handle your luggage on your last day!! Don't take it to the parks!! When staying at a Disney resort, that's the best way!!!!
Thanks guys I am staying at the Wilderness Lodge so I think i can check my luggage in when i check out of the hotel that morning to head over to the park and if i understand you correctly i can leave my carryon bag with the bellhop and then pick it up when i get ready to leave after some time in the park. just dont want to put everything that gets bought down there in the checked luggage would rather keep it with me, course i could ship it too but thats more of a hassel to do thanks for the tips

I have a question...hoping someone can answer it.

We are flying Jet Blue out of Boston in a few weeks and have ME luggage tags, but we are not taking the ME bus and have opted to rent a car for our stay, so....can I still use the ME luggage service without using the bus?

I know I can check in our luggage at the hotel for our return trip..but confused about the way down.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

No, for the trip from MCO to the resort, you can't use DME as a luggage-only service. At least one person from your party must ride the DME bus in order for your luggage to be delivered by DME.

Question Luggage tags and packet

Hello everyone!! I have received our luggage tags and packet information in the mail for our trip in January. Everything on the tags is correct, but inside the packet that they send it says, No Flight Information. I made my DME reservation online and I did put in my flight info, so I'm not sure if this really matters or not. Also, we are getting in late so I dont' plan on using the DME tags anyway, we are just going to get our luggage ourselves, but I realize we still need a DME reservation if we want to use Disney's transportation. Do you think the info in the packet is important? Thanks for your help in advance!

Don't worry about the flight information. Just give it to them when you check in at the Welcome Center at the airport. You have a booklet, which means you HAVE a reservation. That's all you need!

What do you do if your flight has changed??
Our flight times have changed (3 times with Delta) then we decided to switch over and fly Jet Blue non-stop and we'll be arriving 2 hours earlier than originally booked...does that matter to ME?...should we call them, or is there somewhere we can do it on-line?? Like sooooon????? or just wing it once we get to MCO? We do have the booklet and the yellow luggage tags.

Most likely you'll be fine with the changes. You could call them today just to get JB in their system, but I wouldn't worry too much since you'll have the yellow tags and the resort hasn't changed.

When is the lastest that you can add DME? We may fly down Dec. 27th if AirTran has a special.
Thanks for any information.

Could someone please confirm this again? Our tags all have the same name on them (presumably what was supposed to be the name the room is registered in, i.e., my name), plus the passenger's name. Well, my name is no where to be found; instead they created a name out of one of my guest's first name and my last name. Each of the other three people in my party, at least, have tags that have their name on them (plus this made-up name), but I have tags that have this made-up name on them, twice.

What should I do? Just fix them manually?

The advice you quoted still stands. Just don't obstruct the bar code

When you check in at the Welcome Center, they can correct it in the computer.

OK, possibly a dumb question...but since I've read on this thread that the DME reservation is linked to your room reservation and not your flight, can you book DME before you book your flight?
