About the DME. I believe the luggage will arrive. Assuming you are talking about checked luggage. You get luggage tags before your trip, and put them on the bags before you check them at the airline. So when you get to MCO, there is a company, Bags Inc., which pulls your luggage out and put it on a truck (not the bus.) Which is why your bags arrive up to 3 hours after you do.

I would sign everyone up for DME, and then just have one person check-in but I don't know of any "checking" between bags with tags.

I heard another girl named Katie ask about good normal food at the Boardwalk (my favorite resort area)- and I say Beaches and Cream honestly has the best burgers I have ever had and is well worth the wait! I would also recommend ESPN too, and I would say the hidden treat there is their milkshakes (believe it or not)- they are delicious! I highly recommend ESPN's buffalo chicken sandwich as well. Another Boardwalk delight is the little cart that sells sausages and hot dogs- the sausages are stuffed with peppers and so good!

ESPN...I'm with Matt on this - don't ever go when a big game is on!! Considering this is a sports bar, I would think "never" is a great time to go. They don't take reservations, and there is no "approximate wait time" which means you'll be waiting...until a table is available. I understand WHY they do things the way they do, but I certainly don't have to like it and think they should have a designated serving area so people can get in and out.

About the DME for the listener from Kitchener, Ontario.... They will be able to use DME for the trip to WDW but on the trip back they will have to take their luggage with them. You cannot do the luggage check at the hotel if your final destination is outside of the US. I found this out the hard way just last week.

I have to agree with you regarding the listener who wanted to lie about the age of her just-turned-ten-year-old, while also acknowledging that I feel her pain. My son will have been ten for 2 weeks when we go this summer, and that's costing us hundreds between the resort, tickets, and meal plan. But we sucked it up for the greater good, I guess, and also because we don't want our son to think his parents are liars or that he is obligated to lie at any point... One thing that helped somewhat is the fact that he can now go on the "Magic Behind the Steam Train" tour BECAUSE he is 10, and he's been wanting that for years. (As an aside, he's still a "kid" at Kennedy Space Center until he's 12, so we saved a little cash there!)
