Rac

Can anyone use the RAC desk. We are going on a DCL but not using Disney transfers. Can I stop by one of the hotels and check in our luggage so I don't have to worry about it in the car while at DTD? Not using DME we will have a rental.

You can only use RAC at the resort where you are a registered guest.

Just an update... I've seen evidence that USAirways will be expanding to include other resorts. I do not have any details on if it will be all resorts, or just a few more, and I do not know when. Just some, maybe all, and soon.

Delta/Freedom Airlines - Still Participating??

I know for a time there Delta Connection flights that were actually operated by "Freedom Airlines" were not able to participate in RAC.

Has this been corrected?? Does anyone have any recent experience flying Delta/Freedom and using RAC??

Thanks!!

Whoo Hoo Maybe

My bet is they start the Yacht Club after we leave on 12/18

I'm still debating on renting a car for the week because of the good rates however if they start this then I will forget the car.

I just received this response from Bags, Inc. Guess I bet wrong


We are now servicing US Airways at the Yacht club on Disney property. Thank you for your inquiry.

Do you have a timeline to begin servicing US Airways customers at the Yacht Club? I believe your service is still being tested at several other Disney resorts for US Airways passengers.

Thanks for the e-mail copy. As soon as I get whether or not it will be all resorts through the official channels, I will update this thread.

Hi Tyler

Did you ever get official confirmation that US Airways has been rolled out to the other resorts? I know I got the email from BAGS Inc. but your information is probably more reliable then their person answering emails.

Thanks
Ty

I asked a RAC person, and he told me that as far as he knows, it is still in a test phase, and they have expanded to include Yacht Club, Beach Club, and the BoardWalk.

Thank you for all of your help and great information. Thank you to every one else in the Transporation Board. We leave tuesday morning and fingers crossed everything will fly smoothly... I'll let everyone know how the "test phase" is going with US Airways and the Yacht Club.

Thanks again

Ty

Well to answer my own question, it appears the Delta Connection/Freedom Airlines snafu has been corrected because I used RAC this morning with my flight, AND I was able to use RAC at 5:15 am for an 8:40 am flight, so in my case I was able to use RAC less than 4 hours before my flight.

Does anyone know if US Air can now be used for check in at all of the resorts. My parents are coming down in February (haven't booked their flight yet) and they usually stay at Coronado Springs. We used AirTran for the All sports and it was great. Can anyone tell me what airlines do check in at coronado? thanks
