Not purchasing Disney transfers to/from the ship

This might be a silly question but if we decline the Disney Transfer option for $70/pperson will we still get the Disney luggage tags to put on our luggage so it will be in our stateroom after we board the ship? Do the luggage tags come with every cruise purchased or only if you spend the extra for the transfers? Thanks

everyone should get luggage tags. if you fly in the day of your cruise you would not put them on before your flight if not using DCL transfers.
if you drive in then you put them on before you give your luggage to the porters at the port. again, you will not see your luggage until it is delivered to your cabin.

Yes, you still get the luggage tags. We did not purchase the Disney Transfer option. As a surprise to our kids, we have a limo picking us up from Animal Kingdom Lodge.It doesn't matte how you get to port, the luggage tags will be sent so they can get your luggage to your stateroom.

The luggage tags that you receive in the cruise packet are for those people going directly to the ship via DCL transfers. I don't think that DCL will pick up your bags without DCL transfers being booked.

You have to get your bags to the ship with you. Once at the port, you hand off your checked bags to the porter outside the terminal and then the will show up at your room later that afternoon.

Yes you will still get DCL Luggage tags to put on your luggage you put them on your bags before you get to port and they then are taken by porters and delivered to your stateroom as you say, but without DCL transfers you have to take them airport to Port.

Everyone gets luggage tags, in the cruise packet. Not just people having DCL transfers but see above, if you do not take transfers you put them on at the port and hand to the porters.

I had luggage tags for my bags on my cruise two weeks ago and I didn't have DCL transfers.

From what I recall, you get luggage tags regardless of whether or not you are taking DCL transfers, but if you are not taking the transfers, they won't be picked up at the airport. You have to pick them up yourself so you should NOT place them on your bags before you check in for your flight. It will only cause confusion because I believe that they link up all bags with reservations so that they don't miss any bags; they may just leave them at the airport or end up who knows where. I've sometimes been asked how many bags I have when taking ME to WDW so I have to assume that they do so kind of spot check at least.

You put them on after you pick the bags up at MCO then drop them with the porters at the port.

Luggage tags

This will be my 5th cruise with Disney and I have yet to use the Disney transportation. I have received luggage tags prior to leaving home and have placed them on my luggage. Given my luggage to the porters at the cruise terminal and my luggage has found its way to the stateroom later. Hope this helps

We aren't using DCL transfer and have luggage tags like the ones you get at Airline check in. A couple on our FB group who are getting DCL have smarter plastic Disney more traditional luggage tags (this could be as well as the ones we've got). This could be because they are Castaway Club or something else though it's our 1st cruise so we don't know but they are definitely different to ours!
