At that time of night I'm probably not going to do anything but get settled and go to bed so for my dime I'd rather get ME and sit back and relax knowing they know where to take me and I don't have to worry about a thing, maybe even take a nap! And save my money for buying mini donuts, turkey legs, and the sugared nuts!!! and maybe a Dole whip.

Thanks again. I hadn't even considered my brother having to clear customs. I was more concerned with him finding the fastest route to the hotel since we have an early start scheduled for the next morning.

We are staying at the CR so I believe that it is one of the first drop offs on that partcular route. I'll pass on all the info to him and he can decide which he is most comfortable with.

Thanks

But there's no such thing as a pre-set order of drop-offs, and there's no such thing as a particular route. They group resorts together on a bus depending on who is going where at the same time. Sure, it makes sense that Grand Flordian, Polynesian and Wilderness Lodge would be grouped together with Contemporary, but if there aren't people going to those other resorts, then CR will be lumped in with some others. For example, when I just stayed at CR two months ago, we were the second stop after Port Orleans French Quarter. In other words, you absolutely can't count on a certain route or a certain order.

Absolutely true...there is no 100% sure way to know which order you will be dropped off in.

So if we arrive at 9:27pm we DON'T have to get our bags correct?

No, but it can take up to 3 (or is it 4?) hours for your bags to get to your room. So if you're OK without your stuff until after midnight, and also OK with someone coming to deliver your luggage to your room late at night, go for it.

I think if I had a flight landing after 7, I'd collect my own luggage. I'm always tired after traveling and wouldn't want to be waiting up for it. YMMV.

My recent (Dec 19) experience with DME, luggage, and late arrival. I found out DME WILL NOT deliver luggage to your room after midnight UNLESS you phone the luggage desk at your resort and tell them it's okay.

Our plane arrived late, and I arrived at the DME counter at MCO right at 10:00pm. I asked them if they would get my luggage or if I should go get it, and they said they would. We arrive at POP resort with a carry-on packed with enough supplies to get us through one night and day, but I really wanted my other things.

Anyway, by 1:00am I was wondering what was taking so long. It was late night and DME at MCO had been DEAD when we were there. I hit the LUGGAGE button on my resort phone and they said they would not deliver any luggage after midnight unless the customer requested it...and that a cage of luggage had JUST arrived and they would look for my one suitcase.

Around 2am I got a call that they had my suitcase and would be delivering it, if I still wanted them to. If I had to do it all over I would just grab it off the luggage carossel and lug it myself.

Point of story...if it's after midnight and you don't have your luggage, give the luggage desk a call...it may be there but they aren't allowed to deliver it without your okay.

I see in your signature that you stayed at the Pop. Value resorts stop delivering luggage at midnight. All other resorts will deliver 24/7. There is a difference between the luggage service at the value resorts and the luggage service at the other resorts. I guess you can say you get a little less service to go along with your smaller price at the values.

And if you don't want your luggage delivered after a certain time, just tell the front desk you want it held. And put the Privacy Please card in your door. They will hold your luggage until you call down for it.

If we want to have them pull the luggage and deliver it the next day, will they? We arrive at 11:50 pm, and we can certainly keep everything we need for 1 day in our carry ons. I would rather have them pull it and deliver it to the room while we are out enjoying the park the next day. Also, since I had to give them flight times when I arranged for ME, wouldn't they have not sent tags if they won't use them at my arrival time?
