Yeah, that wait sounds unusual. We've done value, mod, deluxe and almost always boarded ME immediately and left the airport within 10-20 minutes of boarding.

I have never waited more then like 15 mins in line and another 15 on board to drive away but I do know multi people who have waited over an hr in line
One lady will not take me since waiting close to 1.5 hrs and just gets a limo. She said the line was wrapped in and out of the rope railing and going out to where you checkin with the cm who tells you what line to get in
Seems like it never fails thought that my resort is last no matter where I stay

That wasn't an issue with me, it was just that we waited so long to leave MCO. I kept waiting for them to decide that they had enough people for the bus (that we could see sitting there the entire time) and it never happened. In the end there were so many people that they had to get 2 buses. Since that is my only experience I don't have anything to compare it to but that seemed to be an excessively long time to wait. That time our flight was in the middle of the day but this time our flight arrives at 9:30 in the morning. By the time you factor in getting up for the day, driving to the airport, waiting for the flight and the actual flight, I am not going to be in the mood to wait for almost 2 hours again. Please tell me that my first experience was not the norm.
The last few times we have stayed at the BC the ME stopped at the CBR. I have also been on a ME that shared the BC with POR. The ME stopped at CBR first, before going to the Epcot resorts. And on the return trip it picked up last at CBR before heading to the airport.

The number of stops and the wait in line for DME solely depends on how busy they are. We've waited close to an hour to board at DME bus at the airport because we (mistakenly) arrived on a Saturday morning, which was about the busiest time we could have picked during a busy time of year.

I think it was just that day. All of the times we've used DME when arriving we have never waited long. We stay at Port Orleans Riverside or French Quarter and DME always shares with SSR and OKW also, at least all of the times we have gone it did.
Next trip- November 6-14th 2015 Port Orleans French Quarter!!
