kjccr: You do NOT have to check your luggage at 5 AM. You have to check it at least three, but no more than twelve, hours before your flight departs, not before you leave the resort for the airport. On the other hand, to be absolutely safe, you should plan to have all your luggage AND all your 'people' at the RAC counter by 7 or 7:15 in case there's a long line.

I complained to the person that tried to check us in at Pop Century but he said that Alaska had been denying everyone so far that tried to check in. It was not just us. At the airport, I spoke with another passenger that tried to check in at the Contemporary and she had the same problem. She had to take her luggage to the airport and get her boarding pass there. So be prepared as they may advertise that they are "Participating" but in reality they aren't.
It could very well be that on that particular day, Alaska Airlines and/or BAGS were having some technical issues. I'm sure it was just an isolated incident.

Ok i've read through this entire chain (12 pages) and I don't think I have seen the answer. I have booked ME, flying with Southwest and realize that it is not included in list and all that is involved with that problem. NOW, we are staying at Music Family suites BUT i want to rent a car from Dolphin. Can I get dropped off there? OR must I go to the hotel on my reservation?

Everyone who gets a ride from DME MUST be dropped off only at the resort where they are a registered guest. Besides, even if that weren't the case, Dolphin isn't a Disney owned and operated resort and thus is not served by DME. Sorry.

There's no DME (or any other FREE transportation) from Sanford to WDW. Your options are to book a flight that lands at MCO (Orlando International Airport) and take DME from there, or keep your current flight and arrange for private transportation from there. There are plenty of companies that provide private transportation.

Is this correct?

They were mis-informed if they were told they could use the Resort Airline Check-In desk to recieve thier boarding passes and check thier luggage at the resort for thier trip home.

They can still use all other transportation and inbound luggage services.

Yes, you can call yourself and make the reservations. I booked our room through AAA and made my own reservations with DME.

I'm not sure how far out you can make your reservations, but I would think you should be able to make them now. If not, they will let you know when you can.

Have fun!

Sorry, I'm new to this topic and really confused! I have a few questions:

1. Can Shades of Green guests use ME?
2. I do not have to go through a TA - I can book my own flight and then make reservations for ME? (Just the DisneyWorld phone #?) If I do not fly a participating airline, how does it work? I pick up my baggage and take it to the bus?
3. Is there a site where I can read more about ME so I don't have to ask dumb questions?
Thank you.

Well first off, guests at SOG can't use DME. Sorry.

People can make DME reservations. You don't need a TA, or a package. You just need to be a registered guest at a Disney owned-and-operated resort.

As for where you can go for more info, the 1st post in this thread would be an excellent start. For example, it says there that EVERYONE on EVERY AIRLINE gets the automatic luggage delivery upon arrival (skipping baggage claim, etc.).
