Yes, your luggage will be put into storage and delivered to your room later in the day. Once you arrive, also give your carryons to bell services and they will be delivered when your room is ready. Head for the parks, lunch, pool, whatever. Enjoy your day. When you return to your room that evening, your luggage will be there.

Thanks, I was wondering about the carryons, I didn't want to drag them to the pool with us.

Sorry, but Southwest is only booking flights through the end of September at the present time.

Just got back and figured out why we got two sets of DME packets. Because we had a room price change during our stay, we had two reservations, hence two DME reservations; one on arrival and one for departure.

When do I put my ME tags on??

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this but...

Picked up tiks and ME tags from our CAA (AAA) travel agent today and she told me we had to put the tags on after our luggage arrives in orlando. ie we have to recover our bags from carosel and then add the yellow tags then hand off the bags to a ME representative.

From everything I have read so far shouldn't I be able to tag the bags in Winnipeg and just proceed to the welcome centre? Or do I still have to gather the bags from the carosel?


We clear US customs in Winnipeg before boarding our United Airlines flight to Chicago where we connect to Orlando( also United). So we are not an international arrival cause the flight landing in Orlando is from Chicago.

PS - I asked her to confirm what she was saying with other agents in the office and she called back and said yes I'd have to claim the luggage and tag in Orlando.

DO the people at CAA have it wrong??

Well... yes, and no...

For those guests travelling internationally, who will need to go through Customs... you claim your bags at the airport, proceed through Customs, and then you drop your bags back off after Customs, and instead of re-claiming them, they get transported to the resort. So, I guess you could tag your bags at home... or when you claim them for Customs... either way.

Your best bet is to call DME directly using thier 866 number which is somewhere on here, probably on the first page. (Sorry, I dont have it handy) They will confirm the real story.

If you do pass through customs in Orlando, you only have to claim your bags at customs, then they go back on a conveyer belt and are transported to regular baggage claim for you, at which time if the yellow tags are on them, the Magical Express folks will retrieve them for you.

If you go through customs elsewhere then your bags should go directly to the regular baggage claim area, and if the yellow tags are on your bags, then the Magical Express folks will retrieve them for you.

Last May we flew Toronto to Orlando direct, checked our bags at Pearson, cleared customs in TO and the next time we saw our luggage was in our room at AKL after a quick check in and lunch. Next stop the pool by early afternoon after we unpacked, then onto a wonderful meal at Boma........the whole thing worked like a charm! So fingers crossed you can clear customs in Canada and you won't have to lift a single bag until you go to unpack after your arrival! Good luck and have a blast.

Thanks everyone!!

I'm going to tag them here after they are inspected by customs as I suspect we can.

I'll let you know if we get our bags ok.

How does this work when traveling Southwest. Can we still have someone check us in. If we have a 8p flight out then how soon do we need to leave for the airport?


this is one of the most helpful threads I have read so far

You'll be given a departure time the day before you check out of your resort. It is usually about 3 hrs before your flight time. So, that would make you leaving at around 5ish. If you want to check in with SW and get those A seats, then you should be able to do that within 24 hrs. of your flight time...stop by the front desk of your resort and ask them to get your 'SW boarding passes printed out please'. I've had very good luck having this done. Leave your luggage with the bell services people for the day. Go off, have fun. Then, at around 4:30ish, go back to bell services, get your luggage and head over to the DME bus area.
Hope this helps!!
