I would say yes. You would at least have to be scheduled to take the DME, but I don't know if it's based upon that or if it's based upon when you check in at DME. You could call them and ask. The number is 1-866-599-0951. I'll be interested to hear what you find out.

Yes, at least one person from your party has to ride the DME bus in order for them to transport your luggage to the resort.

We just got back from WDW and we did use the DME and it IS required that at least 1 person from the party use the Transportation for them to transport your Luggage to the Resort.

Thank you to all that responded.

I did call the DME and of course they also state that you must be on the bus and that the luggage is nit delivered to your resort until after check in.

DME works the same way airlines do. Your luggage does not travel unless you do. In other words, if you want Disney to transport your luggage, you need to be on the bus. If you are not, don't expect your luggage to show up at the resort.
