Any checked bags that you tag with the yellow DME tags will be taken from the plane, sorted and put on resort trucks for delivery. You can expect them, in your room, up to 4 hrs after resort checkin. Later in the evening it usually takes less than that. If your flight arrived after 10pm, then your DME tagged bags would remain at MCO until the next morning, and then be delivered to you.
If you want to claim your own bags, at baggage claim, just don't tag them. When you get to MCO, head to your baggage claim area, get your bags and then head to DME checkin. Your bags will go under the bus. Keep in mind that any time a bus driver 'touches' your bag(s), they are going to expect a tip.
Hope this helps a bit.
Thank you! I'm going to copy this so I won't have to ask again.

Does everyone have to take the DME for your luggage to get to the resort? We're renting a car at the airport, but my Grandma and little sister are taking DME. Can we put the yellow tags on all of our luggage, even though only 2 people will be riding the bus?

Yes, that's fine. I think they will really enjoy the bus ride.

Thank you, that will make it easier for my Mom and me, so that we don't have drag our luggage through the airport. We should make it to the resort in the rental car and be checked in before the DME bus arrives.

Yes, we're sending my Grandma on the bus because it will be her first time in 10 years and I want her to get the full Disney experience.

A quick question after reading through the thread.....

After you've checked in, does anyone need to be in the room to accept your DME tagged luggage? We've made a ADR for early evening and we anticipate being out for a few hours.

No. They will leave the bags in your room for you. If you would like to leave a tip make sure it is clearly marked.

The CMs who deliver DME luggage to our rooms are "pre-tipped" by Disney. Tips aren't expected.

I agree.

In fact, one of the truly great things about DME is that you don't have to wait in your room for your bags to be delivered. After you check in, just drop your carry-ons in your room and go out and have fun. When you return to your room a few hours later, your bags will be in it. You won't even know if they were delivered 30 minutes or 3 hours after you checked in.

If you're in your room when your bags are brought up, tipping bell serves is not necessary. However, they can accept additional tips. If the person delivering your bags provides exceptional service and/or additional service (such as getting ice for you or helping you with something else), then an additional tip would be appropriate.

If you get help with your bags when you check out, the bell services person is NOT "pre-tipped" by Disney, even if you're using DME. So a tip would always be appropriate then.

ME luggage question

I need a reminder of how and when we use ME for our return flight home. Our flight leaves at 12:30 pm. I know the bus will pick us up at 9:30. When will they need our luggage at bell services that am? We can call the day before to pay our luggage fees for the return flight, right? TIA

Your bags have to be completely checked, boarding passes in hand, no less than 3 hrs before your flight departure time. Since you will be getting a bus around 9:30ish, I would take the luggage to the RAC counter before breakfast...maybe by 7:30ish. The line can get longish if you get there around 8..that's a very popular time to check bags at RAC.
You will receive a notification in your room the day before you depart. It will give you your bus pickup time, as well as a number to call to pay your checked bag fees. I usually jot down the conf. number I get for bag fee payments right on that noticification. Then I bring it with me to RAC just to have proof my fees have been paid.

Quick question about the trip back to MCO via a Town Car ... our flight leaves MCO at 6:30 pm, we'd like to go into the Parks during the day, as we're not expecting to leave the resort (Port Orleans French Quarter) until around 4 pm on our day of departure. We're flying Delta - can we check our bags at the resort and have them delivered to the Airport if we're taking a Town Car? Or do we have to take DME to check luggage at the resort?

Yes, you can check your bags, and get your boarding passes, at RAC that morning and then head out for the day. You will be given a number to call the day before to pay your checked baggage fees.
Then, if you have carryon bags, you could actually take them to the park with you and rent a locker for the day...then head to the nearest resort to be picked up. You could be picked up at a park but I like being picked up at a resort.
