But when we go home we will have to bring our luggage down to the ME bus at the resort and then take them off the buss, carry them from whereever the bus drops us off to the check in and check them at the airport ourselfs? Is that right and our flight home takes off at 8am so we will have to board the bus at aprox 4 or 5 am? ugg not looking for ward to that.

Thanks for any help
Yes, that's how it will work for you. If your flight departs at 8 am, DME will most likely tell you to be picked up at about 5:00-5:15. But, keep in mind, a towncar/taxi would give you only about an addtl. 30 mins in bed. With DME you get to the airport with about 2 hrs to spare, sometimes less depending on how many resorts need to be picked up on that particular route. MCO will tell you to arrive at the airport two hours before your flight departure, so you would need to be there by 6:00 anyway, so with DME you will most likely arrive by 5:30 or so..plan on breakfast at the airport, that's what we do.

Breathe, breathe. Go to the first page of this thread. It has all the 'participating airlines' listed. As airlines join, it is updated. And yes, Delta is a participating airline.
Not sure why you need the number but here it is..866-599-0951
You should make your reservation for DME with whomever you booked your room stay with.

Actually, because it's an international flight, chances are the pickup will be around 4:00am, to allow the extra time for Customs, etc.

I will be departing AKV on 7/13 but won't actually be leaving Orlando until 7/14. I booked AKV with points before booking flight, and flight much cheaper the following day. May I use ME to go to airport on 7/13 even though my flight is not until 7/14? I booked a hotel close to the airport, and the hotel shuttle service can take me to my hotel from the airport after ME drops me off.

Yes.

You are still entitled to a ride back to the airport on or before your check-out date regardless of whether you are flying out on that date.

Hello, I have a question I hope someone here can answer. We are doing a land/sea pkg over Christmas. I have heard that DCL had onboard check in and luggage check in. Also that DCL will deliver your boarding pass to your stateroom on the last night of the cruise. I have been getting mixed reports on the DIS DCL forum, so thought I would bring my question here. I need to know how this works, and if American Airlines, and Delta airlines participate in this service. I'm wanting to book airfare before it goes up.....again. We will be purchasing DCL transport from the Poly to the terminal, and from the terminal to MCO. I'll be thankful for any information you can give me.

Hi Everybody,

Since we fly from CA and we hate to pay Disney prices for a "short" night we have a flight coming in the night before our reservation at SSR. We were planning to spend the night at the airport Hyatt. Do you know if we can use Magical Express the next morning? I realize we'll have to claim our bags and then check them in with DME but I just wasn't sure if this was allowed.

Thanks in advance!

Suzy

No problem. Just head down to the DME counter in the morning when you're ready to go and just check in at the welcome center.
They will ask for your paperwork (the coupon book that was mailed to you) and only one person has to stand in line to check everyone in.
Enjoy your trip

The resort check-in desk opens at 5am. If I am wanting to check luggage and do airline check-in for jetblue early Friday am (in the hopes of going to Epcot before DME picks us up at noon), what time would you suggest getting in line? I would be hoping to leave BWV to walk to Epcot by 8:30am. Any suggestions?

You can check in as soon as you want to. I would suggest being all done by 7:30 though. The lines tend to get longer as the morning progresses. There are a lot of flights before noon, so those folks will be in line early. If you get to the RAC desk by 7ish, you should be all set. Then, you can grab a bite to eat, and head over to Epcot for a few last hours of fun. Be sure to be back at BW by 11:30 though, especially if you have any carryon bags you need to get out of storage.
