The only time we used it we had to wait on the bus 90 minutes for another flight to land, and it was already around 10:30pm. My husband said never again taking ME to the resort. I'm sure this was an exception but it sure left a bad taste. Also, taking a service we can now stop for a grocery stop! Don't get me wrong, I would love to take ME, but after flying for 8 hours, I just want to get there!!

Still not sure if I am going to call for BOG ressies. The menu doesn't really grab me. The good thing is we would be staying at MK and not going to the GF for dinner. Only a few more hours to decide.

This is me as well. Was trying to justify eating there for the newness/beauty, but my family just isn't interested. I suggested going for just dessert, but even that menu isn't grabbing us.

I use ME when we don't drive to Disney and it has worked out well for our family. Haven't seen where anyone has had problems so far this year. I haven't notified ME for this trip as i may change airports if SE has better prices from another airport close to me.

Woohoo! 90 days today for us!

Also, for those looking at BOG reservations keep in mind that lunch service is actually QS, so no reservation needed for just lunch! For those having a hard time getting the family interested in the menu I suggest looking at the Croque Monsieur sandwich, which is a grilled or fried (depending on how it's prepared) ham and cheese sandwich. Lots of calories I'm sure but very yummy. The bechamel sauce is just a French cream sauce. Again, high in calories but yummy.

Good luck to those calling in!

This is our first time, so I have no experience with the ME, but I know my husband and he does NOT run on other peoples time! When we get to the airport he is going to be ready to leave. RIGHT AWAY. Haha.

I also heard that ME gets you to the airport way too early for your departure flight. H and I fly often for work, and for a domestic flight we never get to the airport more than 1.5 hrs before hand, and I hear people getting there 3 hours early. No thanks!

So, we're using Happy Limo. I was quoted at $220 (plus tip) for round trip service and 1 grocery stop in a stretch 8 passenger limo. Our girls are going to FREAK out -- they've never been in a limo! And, I like the extra pampering

We used ME on our last trip and loved it. I really enjoyed not having to drive at all on the trip. That's part of why I love Disney and Las Vegas as destinations.

That being said you have to set expectations for the ME and Disney transportation experience. The travel time will be a little longer after you arrive but not having to carry a family's worth of luggage, car seats, strollers, etc is worth it to me. Same for the return trip. Bell service picked up our bags at our room and we checked them at the resort, then got on the bus headed for MCO. We were there early, but knowing that even if security was busy we wouldn't be running to the gate was relaxing. We also had time to enjoy a final meal at a relaxing pace.

The same goes with the onsite transportation. The buses aren't as fast, but are typically convenient ways to get around. We are expecting to not use them as much this year since we will have our own car, but may use them if we just don't feel like driving or aren't in a rush. We know we will be there at a peak time so the buses will be crowded and it may take more than one bus to arrive before we can get on. As long as we prepare ourselves and get in line early enough we should still make it to our destinations reasonably. On the flip side if we are slow to get ready and try to get to an ADR in 30 minutes we will be anxious and feel rushed and where is the fun of that on vacation?
