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.
A coupla thoughts:

1) If you received something from the airline (ANY airline), it has nothing to do with DME. Period. Even people who are using DME and flying a "participating" airline don't receive any type of luggage tags for their return home.

2) Please post again and describe the second set of tags for us. Maybe someone reading your description can help identify what it is you're talking about. Maybe you should also describe the first set of tags you received. A lot of people receive the hard plastic WDW luggage tags, the ones with the blank business-card size paper behind a plastic sleeve, and incorrectly think these are the DME luggage tags. Those are not DME luggage tags. The DME luggage tags are yellow sticky paper, are pre-printed with all kinds of identifying information, and are bound into your DME booklet.

There are people here willing to help, so please respond.

I'm wondering if they are the new redesigned DME (inbound) luggage tags...

The tags I received are DME tags with our departing flight information on them (pretty sure, they're at home and I'm at work). I'll have to verify the information on them when I get home, but they are Definately DME tags (the yellow sticky tags that came with the DME booklet). I received two DME packets, one incoming and one outbound about two days apart.

i booked DME in January for our May trip....still haven't gotten anything in the mail. Should I be worried? Who should I call about this??

Please advise.

OK, I just checked

I just checked both booklets. The first one I received has our arrival info on the "Flight Arrival Information" page. On the departure page it says "No Flight Information Provided". The second booklet I received has "No Flight Information Provided" on the arrival page and our departure information on the departure page. The luggage tags are correct for both respectively. The DME vouchers in the first package have our arrival date and the vouchers in the second package have our departure date.


Curious, huh?

Rental Cars and the DME

Can I use the DME to transport my luggage to my room? I want to rent a small car and have the DME take my luggage to my room and also to the airport on the way home. Is this possible?

Thanks

No. DME was not designed to be a luggage transfer service. If you don't use DME yourself, there is no telling if your bags will get to the resort. Evidently, from what we have heard, your voucher is scanned when you board the bus. This is what tells the baggage people that you are there and releases your bags. If you want to rent a car, then someone from your party must use the bus.

I'm assuming that you want to use the bag check-in for your return to the airport at the end of your vacation. Yes, you can do that. This, technically, isn't part of DME. If you were planning on using the bus for your return to the airport, then, yes..you would have to let DME know. But not if you are just going to check your luggage through.

Great! Thanks Diane! Yes, I would just use it to check our luggage & airline check-in for our return flight since NWA is now part of the DME program. We are using DME to arrive at the resort, but will have a rental car to get us to the airport for our return flight.
So I can just check-in for our flight home & check our baggage at the resort, leave it for the DME to bring to the airport & the next I'll see our luggage is when we land? And just to confirm, since we will have already checked-in at the resort for our flight, once we arrive at the airport, we can just go right through security. No need to go to the NWA counter, correct?
Last question, when checking in for the flight at the resort, how early can you do that (check-in)? Our flight is at 530pm & we are going to the parks before. Hoping I can do the flight check-in & baggage check when we check-out of our resort???
Thanks
Jen

Hi Jen.....I can't tell you exactly how early you can do the bag check/airline check-in. I have always had a morning flight. But you shouldn't have any problem checking in with the airline people at the resort when you are checking out of the resort. I believe their desk opens at 5 a.m. Just a side note...your bags are not transported via DME...it is a service basically provided by those 'pariticipating' airlines. You deal directly with TSA (or whatever they're called) right at the resort. The bags may go back to the airport via the DME truck but I can't say for sure.
And yes, once you have checked your luggage at your resort, you can just go directly to the security lines...no need to stop at the airline counter. I just love being able to do that!!!

Diane-
Oh that's wonderful to know! I understand now! Thanks so much! It will be so nice to get that all done before we go to the parks for our last few hours!! :0( And how nice to not drag around our luggage through the airport! That's awesome! Thanks again! What would I do w/o the DIS boards?!

12 hours before your flight is the maximum you can use Resort Airline Check-In.

I just booked my flights with Southwest and plan to use ME for the arrival, we don't need it for the departure because will be on DCL. My guestion is that our flight gets in at 10:00am, will the Beach Club just put our luggage in storage if the room isn't ready when it arrives?
