Just another argument for Ownerslocker. We just returned from a week at SSR where my family (of 4) had only one checked suitecase. Most of the stuff we use at WDW was waiting in our ownerslocker at the resort.

Will they change it for American Airlines since Starting June 15 you have to pay for all Checked bags.

:( That stinks!
Dave - It\'s not the stuff I need at WDW that causes too much luggage, it\'s teh suff I buy when there.
Grr.. We have been known to pack an empty bag and ifllit at WDW.
Oh well, coudl not do check in fro SWA anyway and teh last time we could do check in, the TSA people were over 15 minutes late so we could nto do it then either.

We have an OL and we live within driving distance :P
You guys just need to move closer!
Seriously though - I think the airlines (like every other company) are looking for ways to make more money without actually raising prices. How many of us have the \"fuel charge\" on our bills now? Hello? Did you drive before? You think I am not going to be peeved because you raise your price some arbitrary number and say it is because of fuel? Funny how that game works, eh?
I really an concerned about the price of fuel. The ramifications are going to be huge.

I\'m not certain what other carriers do, but Spirit allows you to pre-pay both ways. I imagine other carriers do also.
You wouldn\'t think that it would be a logist nightmare just to track how many bags were picked up at MCO and how many the guest is trying to return with. In other words, as long as all the baggage freight was paid for in advance and the guest isn\'t trying to add to the bag count when leaving the resort, it shouldn\'t be a problem to use ME with more than one checked piece of luggage per person.

Yeah, you should have info on your ticket confirmation indicating how many bags you are checking. :confused:
