There is a work around. We made very obvious Disney tags for our luggage and have a copy of this tag that we will hand to Disney along with baggage tags.

Anyone else ever have to use this due to late signup for ME?

For me this is trip number 25 or so, 14 with magic Express and just plain missed it.
Oh, yes. I signed up for DME a few days in advance because of a family emergency. What had been scheduled as a driving road trip for both of us became a solo flying trip for me (including DME). And I did exactly as described above-when I checked into my flight and they gave me my luggage claim tickets, I saved them to give to DME when I checked in there. They took my information and relayed it to their baggage claimers as I stood there. Took all of about 30 extra seconds, and I just trusted my luggage would arrive, which it did, just as scheduled.

Easy fix. Don't check bags. Carry-on only. Done.

Cheers.

This would be us...
