It's very well possible that US Airways will be joining Disney's RAC soon. However, as of today, they are not currently participating.
Thanks for the info!

I booked airfare through Southwest and we have our Magical Express tags and documents. Is Southwest not suppose to be a participating airline? I am confused it it is not why did they let me book ME?

ETA: I just found out that we have to carry our bags on the bus and check them out ourselves.

Also, if my departing (from WDW to go home) flight leaves at 4:50 what time will Magical Express leave POFQ. I can't seem to find this info anywhere and really want to plan my last day well. Thanks!

ETA: I just found out it is three hours prior to flight time.

Mherb - you do NOT have to get your bags on your inbound flight. ME will transport them "magically" to your room. You DO have to bring your bags with you on your RETURN flight. ALL airlines "participate" in the delivery of luggage to the resort when you arrive.

First time ME

I've put in a roundtrip reservation for ME on-line through the DVC members website for July, we're staying at BWV for 1 night then moving to Dolphin for 5 nights for a conference.

I've received a confirmation, but after reading this thread I'm worried I shouldn't of booked the return to MCO. I figured we'd have to board ME at Boardwalk since that's were our reservation started. Should I cancel the return?

You will not be able to take DME back to the airport. They do not service the Swan/Dolphin. Nor can you just walk over to the Boardwalk, as you will not have a reservation. DME's reservations are linked to your hotel stay, and are only valid for those dates.

Do I need to contact DVC MS to cancel or will it get cancelled automatically?

I would of thought my DVC confirmation would of mention this, since I supplied my DVC reservation number and arrival and departure dates and flights.

Thanks for the info, at least I know ahead of time I need to make other arrangements.

Anyone, flying into MCO on any airline, can use DME for transportation to their resort (with the luggage delivery service) and then back to MCO from their resort at the end of their trip. Now, if you are flying a 'participating' airline (and at this point I'm not sure if AirTran is one), you can check your luggage through to the airport and get your boarding passes at the resort. Your luggage is shipped to the airport and you go about your business until it's time to board the bus back to MCO, then go straight to security..no need to check in as you have done it already back at the resort.
IF your airline is not a 'participating' airline, it just means that you can't check your luggage at the resort or get yourselves checked in. You would take your luggage, with you, on the bus. Then check it, as usual, at the airport. That's the only difference.

I read, on another site, that Southwest was now a participating airline.

Can anyone confirm this?

TIA

I know many of you don't care that Alaska Airlines is now on the list, they only have 2 flights a day at MCO to/from Seattle.
But it is the airline that has Mickey on the tail of a couple of its planes, as well as tink on the 50th celebration decorated plane.(flys from Seattle to Orange County California(DL))

Hope you all get your airlines added. I fly Alaska exclusively, and I'm psyched!!
