We're staying at the CBR, flying in on SWA; we have flights plans to leave 12/8, but may want to change those dates to visit some friends in VB. It sounds to me as though we can still take the ME from the CBR on 12/8 to the Orlando airport, and then just go rent a car, visit out friends, and come back to the aiport and fly home on the 11th; in other words, we don't have to fly out on the day we check out of the CBR? Is that correct? Before I change our flight plans, I want to be sure we don't mess up our ME arrangements. Thank You!

Yes, correct, you can do that.

Are you saying that when you do utilize DME luggage transfers- Disney covers the gratuities for the driver and bell services?

Has anyone heard when the test phase for airline check-in is scheduled to end for USair? I'm staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge the first week of December and would like to utalize this service.

Yes, that's right. If you have only carryon luggage with you, that you keep with you on the bus, then there are no gratuities expected. If you have tagged your checked bags with the yellow tags, then Disney has taken care of the gratuity for bell services. That's why they say you don't have to be in your room for baggage delivery.
However, if you feel that the bus driver has gone the extra mile and made your ride much better than you expected, then feel free to tip him/her anyway. I have tipped the driver when I had only a large tote bag for carryon and it was on my lap on the bus. But the driver was so much fun that I hardly noticed the 30 min drive to my resort. But, that is completely up to you.

Any time that there is new information, Tyler will update the first post in this thread. You can just keep checking back to the first thread -- he will even write the date it was last updated, to save us all the trouble of reading through the entire post to detect changes.

Resort airline checkin question.

Great info. We're using DME for the first time next week and this thread is very helpful.

We're flying AirTran Airways and I have a question about airline checkin service at the resorts. As it stands now, we haven't paid the extra $7.50 per person, per seat, per flight segment (all told would be $112.50) to get guaranteed seat assignments. If we check in for our AirTran flight at the resort at 8am, will they be able to secure us seat assignments and give us boarding passes? If you haven't paid for a guaranteed seat assignment you are supposed to get one when you check in for your flight. Obviously checking in at the resorts we'd be doing so earlier than we'd be able to at the airport, and I wondered if the agents at the resorts have the ability to assign seats.

Thanks for any info.

PS, now that I look closer, I can pick seats if I check in online 24 hours (or less) in advance. I'll probably bring my laptop with me, so my problem may be solved. If I've checked in 24 hours in advance then all I need to do is have my boarding pass printed when I check the bags. Right?

This thread is also a sticky... bumping doesn't do anything

But at any rate, no updates have been filtered through the official channels yet.

For AirTran and SouthWest (the only 2 I've done this with) you can just go to the concierge 24 hours before the flight and print out your boarding pass. AirTran will have your seats and SW will have your group (or however they're doing it now). You don't have to be w/ME, only a resort guest and they'll check you in and print out your boarding passes.

Hope that helps!

Spirit Airlines does not participate in Resort Airline Check-In. The first post in this thread is kept up to date with participating airlines.

Post #448 correctly says that Spirit Airlines is NOT a "participating airline" in Resort Airline Check-in.
