[QUOTE=MK032197;1008944]In my many trips to WDW I have never used ME but will be this time. We are staying 1 night at POFQ then going on the Disney cruise for 4 nights and then returning to the BW for 3 nights!! I received my luggage tags for the POFQ now do I just do the onsite airline check in for our return flight at the resort and I assume I do not need anything else then from ME?[/QUOTE]
The onsite Resort Airline Check-in is NOT the same as Disney’s Magical Express.
You can use RAC … anyone at the resort can use RAC (as long as you’re flying on a participating airline).
But if you want the Disney’s Magical Express bus ride back to the airport, you MUST have a DME reservation for that ride. You MUST. You will be assigned a specific bus time. You will not be allowed to board a bus without having this reservation.
The GOOD NEWS is that you can make that reservation as late as 48 hours before your return to the airport, and you can do it right at the resort front desk. You CAN’T do it at the RAC desk, since that desk has nothing to do with the DME bus ride (in fact, the staff at the RAC desk aren’t even Disney cast members). Just go to the BW front desk about 2 days before you leave, and made that DME reservation.
