Ok, after reading all of the posts, I don't think I have seen my question her so that I will ask. Can you just use the DME for a trip back to the airport.? We are doing a 7-day Disney cruise, followed by a 4-night stay at the Poly. We have DCL transfers to pick us up from MCO and take us to the terminal, and will use DCL to get us to the Poly. Thanks

Yes, you sure can. I have done it that way myself, but I did have both ways booked. I would call them to find out if you need to book the return trip. The time that I used only the return I had already booked it from MCO also, but my ds picked me up, so I didn't need to use it. The return was no problem at all.

Call as soon as possible, especially if your trip is within the next month or so. They will send you a packet, with all the info in it that you will need. You will not need the 'yellow' luggage tags since you won't be using DME from MCO to your ship. I'm sure DCL has already taken care of your luggage transfer. You will get a notification at your end resort, notifying you of the time you will need to be at the bus stop for your return to the airport. If you are flying on one of the participating airlines, you will be able to check your luggage through at this time. If your bus time is, say...10:00 am, for a flight time of 1:00pm, then I would suggest that you get your luggage to the luggage check spot by 8 a.m....it can get busy. You will check your luggage (if you qualify) and you will get your boarding passes issued then.

Ok I have 22 days, and 23 hrs till I touch down in Orlando. I have the DME, but when I look at my reservation, it shows airline unknown, and I know I put in the airline, Southwest. Now I am worried my luggage will NOT get picked up, because of this.

This has probably been asked and answered a million times but here goes. Are gratuitys already taken care of for the bus driver (carry on bags) and bell services. In December I went ahead and tipped them both because I was unsure and it is rude to ask.

Thanks

As long as you use the yellow tags, your luggage will be transported. In fact, even if you don't, it still will get taken care of, but it will take a little bit longer.

The ONLY gratuities that are included is the INBOUND Bell Services delivery of your luggage, and ONLY if you use the Luggage Transportation part of the service.

If you handle your own luggage, gratuities are not included for anyone.

Thanks for all of the information. Are there standing (or pre-assigned times) for bus pick up to return to the airport?

Not really. They leave when they have people on 'em. I don't think I've ever waited more than 15 mins for a bus to leave. After you check in at the DME desk, you will be directed to the bus line area, right across the way actually. Then, you head for the line that will service your resort, as well as one of two others. The buses come and go at no 'set' times....just as needed. So, if you were to say, use the restrooms or grab a bite to eat, it won't be the case of having to wait an hour for the next bus to leave.

As Tyler said...bell services people don't get tipped. The bus driver only gets tipped if he/she touches your bags. If you have carry-on only, and you have it on the bus with you, then no tip. But if the driver puts anything underneath the bus, he should receive a tip. Sometimes I will tip anyway because the driver performed his duties exceptionally well....helpful, interesting, adding to my trip.

Yes. You will recieve a notice on your door the day prior to departure with your motorcoach pick up time. Be out at the stop, ready to go about 15 minutes prior.

Here's a silly question. I am looking at myself and 2 kids coming down on Amtrak and being picked up by relatives. Then we would meet DH at the airport as he would be flying in. Is there anyway we could all use ME to get to ASMo or is there another way we would get to the resort?

Ok - I'm trying to get this all straight also. We will be flying into Gainsville and renting a car for a few days as we go to Fort Myers. We will be turning the car in as soon as we get to Disney. So, We only need ME on the way back. (We are flying back from Orlando Airport) We are staying on Rented Points at DVC. Are we allowed to use ME? If so, we just make our reservations at the front desk at BWV?? We are flying by Northwest that is not listed - so, do we just take our luggage with us then?? Thanks in advance for all the answers.

Yes, if you take a taxi from Amtrak to Orlando Int'l, and meet up with your husband, you can take DME.
