Guests who choose to use DME in a way other than described in the terms & conditions and whose luggage gets misdirected by the airline don't get the advantage of having Magical Express act as their agent; claims need to be made within a specified amount of hours.

Add in the time it takes to get to baggage claim and wait for luggage - and it's pretty much even with using DME as designed.

It's not just people that say you're not supposed to do it, Disney does too. Is there a mechanism in place to stop you from doing this? Nope. Can you get away with it? Yep.

On their very own website.

Please note that you cannot reserve the luggage service exclusively. You must be present on the motorcoach to have your luggage transported to a Walt Disney World hotel.

Thank you. I was actually looking for that. I looked on my paperwork from DME and couldn't find anything addressing this specifically.

Luggage and grocery issues aside, what about the safety factor of not being allowed to use a car seat on the ME?

I would never dream of hopping in the car for an hours ride without strapping both my kids in, and have purchased a fifth seat on the plane for my toddler to be in his car seat there too. We are going in Sept for the first time and I'm trying to decide if it's worth having the car service to be able to buckle the kids in properly. I know it's a big bus, and yeah, the older kids ride on the school bus without them, but does anyone NOT take the ME for this reason?
