Hello All

Just back to work today Just wanted to let everyone know that US Airways has been expanded to the Yacht Club but doesn't work. According to the guys at the RAC counter the problem is on US Airways side (what else is new) and they can only get it worling maybe 10% of the time. As a mater of fact, when we got our DME letter the day before we left it didn't even mention US Airways. I asked when we were leaving and the guys at the couter tried, but the system kept saying I was an Airline employee...

So, now that I've used all of my left over frequent flyer miles it's time to move on to a new airline.

Thanks again for everyones help and advice... Now to catch up on all of the emilas while I was away.

I had similar problems with US Air at AKL. I tried to check in at the hotel and US air was down, so we had to check in at airport. Hopefully they will get the kinks worked out by August.

Thanks on the info for US Air. My parents will be booking their flight after Christmas, I will tell them not to book with them. Thanks for the updates. It is very helpful. Happy Holidays to everyone.

US Airways was listed as a participating airline at Beach Club on Wednesday Dec. 12th and I was able to check my luggage for my departure at the Beach Club Magic Express station off the lobby. I asked on Dec. 12th how long US Airways had been participating and was told for at least one week.

Talking Is southwest Airlines included?

For some reason, I thought SW was included? Leaving on 1/5/08.

I'm leaving on ME at 5:00 a.m., can I get my luggage checked so we don't have to lug it.

I have that with ME they drop you so far off from where you check in, and then there are no skycaps around to help.

Sorry, SW isn't yet on board with RAC. Besides, if you are leaving the resort, on DME, at 5:00 am, you wouldn't have been able to use the RAC system anyway. The RAC desk opens at 5:00, and you have to have your luggage completely checked in there before the 3 hrs before your flight mark.
Even if you were flying on a 'participating' airline, you would have an issue being able to check your bags.

Please forgive me for being so confused but I'm flying with US Airways and am I correct that I can't check my luggage using the Magical Express service? I just informed my DVC owner of my flight info but haven't received any word yet whether I will receive any luggage tags or paperwork.

I was hoping to check in my luggage and have transported to BWV but it doesn't look promising with using US Air. Can I still use the service and carry on my bags? and can they be placed on bus to be transported to the hotel even if I didn't check them in at the airport?

Have I confused everyone?

Participating airline only matters for the flight home. ALL airlines have the luggage with the yellow tags transported to the resorts when you arrive at MCO.

Hi!

I just found this thread...and wow...tons of great information. I tried to skim through all the past postings for my question, but didn't see it. So here goes.

I will be coming into MCO with 3 friends in March and we plan to use DME. However, we might be flying in separately...well, a couple of us will be flying in together, but the others won't be coming in until they get off from work.

How does DME work if we're flying in at separate times? The last time I used DME, my friends and I all flew in together. We will be flying out together, not that I think that matters.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Please forgive me if this question has been asked before but this is our first time using ME. We are flying in on SW and we usually do carry on's. We plan on coming in early and getting our tickets and going to MK. We figure by the time we are done with MK that day our bags will be in the room. Is this right that our bags will be delivered if we use carryon's? Sorry I'm a newbie!
