Do all members of your party (room reservation) need to arrive the same day/ leave the same day to use ME service? Example- my mom will be coming in a day behind us. As long as she is listed on the room, she will be able to use ME?

Guests on the same WDW resort room reservation can arrive on different flights and on different days. The system was designed with the knowledge that family members and friends from different cities share rooms at WDW resorts.

The inbound transportation can be on of after check-in day. The outbound transportation can be on or before check-out day.

Thanks for the quick response! I was pretty sure, but am glad for the confirmation before we get our flights purchased.

We just received our tags and vouchers for DME. I did not see the number listed for BAGS and the vouchers stated that "additional information about this service will be provided in your Transportation Notice". Are they going to be sending us something in addition with more information? I am flying Delta and need to pay for baggage for my return flight. We have used RAC before but only on Southwest so are familiar with RAC we just have not paid for bags before.

They will put a notice on your door the day before your are due to leave, it will give the ME time of pick up and the number to call and pay for your bags

Mildly surprised Frontier was not participating with this? But then I don't know what all the criteria/agreements are to participate?

Remember, on arrival day, everyone on every airline gets the full DME treatment (including the automatic luggage delivery from airplane to resort). It's only on your last day that "participation" matters.

Airlines pay a fee in order to be part of the Resort Airline Check-in service. They also have to make sure that their computer system is compatible with Disney's (this last one was the major sticking point that kept Southwest off the "participating" list for several years).

It's up to each airline to decide if they wish to participate in the RAC program. It usually means making some type of changes to their operating systems. And if they don't have a ton of business going to MCO and WDW, they probably figure it isn't worth it.

BUT...as already noted, you can still use DME, both ways. It doesn't matter what airline you fly into MCO on...if you tag those bags with the yellow DME tags, the bags will be delivered to your resort. As long as you are listed on an active WDW resort reservation, and have made your DME reservation in advance, you can ride the DME bus to your resort.

For your return to MCO, anyone can ride the DME back to MCO from their WDW owned resort. If you are flying on a participating airline, then you can head to the RAC (remote airline checkin) counter no less than 3 hrs before your flight departure and get your bags checked through and your boarding passes issued. If your airline is not participating in the RAC program (such as Frontier), then you just take your bags to the DME bus with you and the bags go beneath your bus and you check them at MCO, the 'old fashioned' way.

I didn't read every post so maybe this has been mentioned
But for our trip in July 2010, jetblue did NOT require airport checking with a infant lap baby
We did everything at the resort

Hi, I just called Disney asking why I haven't received my booklet yet for an August 18 departure. They said they didn't order DME for me (their mistake as I gave a CM my flight info months ago). Anyway, they set it up today but told me it's too late for tags and I will have to lug my luggage at MCO. Is this correct? There is still 2 weeks for them to get me tags and it was their mistake to begin with. Help.

In the past you could give your luggage claim tags to the CM at the ME desk at the airport they would get your bags for you if you didnt have your ME tags.

Seriously? They messed up and they won't make it right?? DME tells us that they need 10 days lead time to process the info packet/tags and get them to the guest. It would seem that you are within that time frame.
Call DME tomorrow, or today if you want, to make sure they have you in their system. That's the first thing to do. Then, ask them if they can expedite the delivery of the packet to you. Technically, they could overnight it to you. But, no need for that. They should have no problem getting it to you in time for your Aug 18 departure.

This is why I tell everyone to deal with DME directly if you are within 30 days of your trip. For some reason, Disney seems to mess it up..way too frequently.

Call DME not Disney, they can get the tags there for you in time.

Thanks-I called DME directly and they said it wouldn't be a problem getting me the tags in time. I don't know why the CM told me otherwise.

Additionally, when I asked that CM if I could call DME directly she said no. I told her I knew there was a phone number out there as I had seen it on the DIS before. She said they were not allowed to give it out. Crazy but all set now.
