Wondering about Disney Quest... Got our vouchers with the Mickey Mail. Do they ask for ID? Our names are on the vouchers. Can they only be used for the dates listed on them?

Off topic but I can confirm they do check IDs.

Tinkerbell1984: same thing happened to us inApril...I thought it was a coincidence...my poor mom ended up up throwing up in ziploc bags and being miserable the whole double ride ( she has motion sickness)... Pretty bad! I hope your complaint gets resolved.

I'd be mad too, what if you'd been due to do something urgent soon such as an airport pickup? Anyone can make a mistake, but to not rectify it when notified is ridiculous. You could complain to guest services, or ask to speak to a manager at one of the bus control booths at the parks. Did you manage to get details of the bus and driver? There must have been a number of people inconvenienced by his actions. Did he give any reason why he wouldn't turn back?

I took a picture of the bus number, license plate and got her name. I did complain at the front desk who thought it was horrible too and got the manager who also thought it was odd and wrote down the time, bus number, and my number to give to the bus managers. The bus driver told us when the bus was empty back at MK that she "wasnt thinking".

We were the only ones. There were about 10 people on the bus only who got on at MK. All got off at W/N/E stops. I got up and asked her about South as she was leaving (still on resort property at security gates) as I naturally assumed she'd go to South until I saw her turn towards French Quarter and she said she wouldn't be going to south cause the bus was full from the N/W/E stops (it wasn't). Then I said "We got to get off, you picked us up at MK." Then she just said we'd have to ride to MK again. I'm glad the resort found it unusual and wrong also though and I did not get ugly with them because it wasn't their fault of course, and hopefully something is done.

The only thing I can think of (and it's still no excuse from your point of view) is that she had already called in to say she had a full bus, and another bus had thus been scheduled to pickup at South, so she had been directly routed to the MK. If she then went to South, she'd have to disappoint a lot of people waiting there with a mostly-full bus. Still no excuse though if you told her while still within Port Orleans grounds.

I have an early ADR in MK Sunday at 8:10am. What time should I catch the bus to MK and which bus stop would be best to get on the bus? I was thinking the south depot???

South Depot at around 7am should be sufficient I'd have thought.

Mickey Mail, Staying at POR

I'm checking in, in 22 days! I still haven't received any packet with luggage tags, etc.. Is this normal?? I tried to search the DIS for info, so as not to repeat questions, but I didn't do it right, because nothing showed up, so I apologize for possibly re-repeating the same questions as others!

I always get mine about 3 weeks before, so it should be any day now.

Yes, they do check ID's.

And the vouchers are good through the length of your stay, until midnight on check-out day.

I'm thinking there won't be taxis waiting outside but guest services can call for one? Can a POR PRO answer this for me?
Last time we were there, we called for a taxi from our room, by the time we got to the front they had already come and gone. The folks out front had the taxi back in a couple minutes. So you might as well wait until you get to the front and let them call them for you.
