I know in the past if you had extra bags you had to call a number the night before we are flying delta but get 2 free bags a person, we booked our tickets with my father who has the perks of 2 free bags each for traveling companions. Do we just bring our bags to the RAC desk and they will just take them or how does it work?

If you need more DME Tags then below is my old comment about needing more DME tags.

(This is for most airlines. All the major ones, anyway)
Just made my reservation for sept 7th My question is if i am flying on southwest can i still use the hotel boarding pass luggage drop off at the hotel or since disney doesnt do southwest reservations like jetblue etc i will have to carry them on my own.

Where will they go?

If I call and request more will they mail them directly to me or will they go to the TA then we have to retrieve them from her?

Also if you call them, how long does it take to get the extras to you?

As this is an important matter to you, it might be worth calling the resort and asking to speak directly with someone in the on-site room assignment team. Don't just discuss it with the first person who answers your call when you ring, as they will be based at a central call center handling calls for all of the Disney resorts. Explain your concerns and the reasons, and that you are not sure whether the fax worked, and I'm sure they'll do their best to help you.

Thank you both for your replies.

We just flew Southwest and did ME, and checked bags and printed boarding passes at the hotel the morning we left.

a couple questions

Hi Everyone! We are going to POR for the first time and staying in a royal room!! Reading this thread has made us even more excited...if possible! I had a question about mailing stuff down prior. I did read the sticky and I know not to use the US postal service and saw the address to send it to. But I was curious if anyone has done this before and if it was as easy as it seems. We will have diapers, wipes, formula and all the stuff that comes along with a 3 year old and an infant (who will be turning 1 while we are there). Has anyone come across any issues?? It seems well worth it to us but want to be sure.

One more question. I know there is no way to know about early check in bc it depends on availability buuuuut do you think sending down a request a few days earlier will help us at all?!?

Thanks in advance for any info.

Welcome
What dates will you be there? I have a son that will be 23 months when we go down there in August. It's our first time going to POR as well. I fell in love with the RR. We also have a DD that's 9 yrs old.

I am referring to when we are ready to leave POR. When we left the poly we had to call the night before to pay for tha bags for jet blue that we had past the one free bag. Delta charges you for any checked bag. But my father booked all our tickets bc he has I forget whatever delta status where each person traveling with him gets up to 2 bags free. How does that work with RAC to go home since our fees are waived.

Etd to say...it looks like you no longer call the night before for luggage fees home but pay it at the RAC desk when you give them your bags....so does this mean you just show them that the bags are free at that time?

There is a sticky at the top of the board called "shipping to your resort." Follow the instructions carefully.

Just go to the desk and they can take care of it. Last time we had military personnel who had free bags, and it came up right on the computer.

We are currently booked 8/31 - 9/8 in a RR Garden View. Of course the dining news came out today, or at least a pretty good rumor of what it will be, and it doesn't include our check in.

If we rebook as a room only for 8/31 and 9/1 in the same category and change our package to 9/2 - 9/8, what are the chances we will be able to stay in the same room for the entire trip? We had already planned on hanging at the hotel our first day and not going to the parks until 9/2. So the room only doesn't change our plans much at all.

Does the pool have life jackets for the kids to wear or should I pack their puddle jumpers?
