Nope, sorry. Disney's Magical Express is only valid on your arrival and departure dates.

I have stretched it once and taken ME very early the next morning after I've checked out.

Checked out at 1:00 pm (requested and received late checkout), went to the parks and PI till about 1am, went back to my resort, claimed my luggage from storage and took a 2:30 am ME for a 5:30 am flight home.

Technically, you are a resort guest until PI closes the day you check out.

This question is probably on here somewhere but can't find it.
So if we don't want to wait for our luggage, we just don't tag them, pick them up ourselves, take them to the bus and they load them for us and then we can get them right away when we get to our resort?

We get in late and don't want to be up waiting for them.

thanks!

I think when you say "if we don't want to wait for our luggage" you're referring to waiting in your resort room and not waiting at baggage claim, right? If that's the case, then you are absolutely correct, if you DO NOT put the yellow DME tags on your checked luggage you CAN get the bags at baggage claim, then bring them to the DME Welcome Center, then have the driver load them on the bus. When you arrive at your resort, the driver will unload your bags for you, and you have them from there. Simple.

The 2 most important things to remember: DON'T put DME tags on your bags; DO go to baggage claim BEFORE you go to the DME Welcome Center.

If someone is staying on property but flying into Orlando/Sanford airport, can they transfer/limo/cab over to MCO and then get on ME at MCO ? ...and on the return trip can they utilize ME for the trip to MCO ? Obviously, no baggage check in would be involved with ME.

Thank you SO much! Just what I wanted to hear!
One more think, where is the DME Welcome Center from baggage claim?

Yes... but the savings versus the additional time delays and transfer hassle might not be worth it.

Just a little more clarity on this answer please.

If we pick up our own checked baggage (sans yellow tag) at the airport and bring them to the ME check-in desk, the driver will put those bags under the same bus that we are travelling on and when we get to the resort he will take them out from under the bus and give them to us and we will then carry them to our room ourselves?

If the above is correct, who do we tip and who is already covered?

If we bring our own baggage to the ME check-in will it always go on the same bus as us?

If we let magical express do their thing, do they unload luggage at each resort as guests are getting off or do they take it to a central place to sort them out and redistribute.

Sorry for all the questions. I'm just really leary about not having my own luggage with me the whole time. I don't wanna be neekid for my whole trip!

If you claim your bags as one normally would, it will go on the same bus as you. At the resort, the driver will unload the bags, you will take them with you. It's just like if you were taking a towncar. Except it's a 45 foot towncar. Gratuity is not covered for anyone, so it would be customary to tip anyone who handles your bag. That's at your discretion.

If you DO tag your bags... they will get pulled as soon as the bag comes off the plane. They get taken to a sorting facility (that works much like a UPS sorting facility). The bag will get scanned no less than 5 times, so its location is always known. The bags will be automatically delivered to your room, and you don't need to be there. Gratuity for the bags on this inbound journey is taken care of.

Return trip tags

I booked our upcoming trip and opted for using ME. I gave the cast member my flight information. We are flying in and leaving on Southwest. Received our incoming luggage tags 7-10 days later. Then, about two days later, I received outbound luggage tags for Southwest. Is this correct since Southwest is not a participating airline and do we still give all of our bags to bell services until our time to be picked up? Will our bags travel with us on the return to MCO or will they be sent seperately? I would understand if we didn't receive return luggage tags, but we did ...

Thanks in advance.

I've never seen any luggage tags for the return trip to MCO. If you are flying SW, then you will be taking your luggage with you, but they go underneath the bus, for the return to MCO. Bell Services will hold your bags until you claim them for the return trip. I would be curious about any tags that you got for the trip back from your resort to the airport. That's a new one on me.
