    Maybe its not that things are that tight..its just the airlines are still charging for luggage so people are using less luggage..so whats the point of sending 2 each? its just waste to send so many.

    The thing to bear in mind though is that most UK visitors go on vacation for 2 weeks or so, therefore 2 cases are essential for all the clothes you need plus the items you will be bringing back home...especially if my DW is anything to go by that is! :lol:

    I've read that they will not be sending anything out to the UK, you'll have to collect your luggage tags and transport voucher at the airport when you arrive.

    i think it's a good way of both saving money and valuable resources, if every company / person did that with one thing it would really have an effect. They said you could ask for more so they're not denying anyone.:thumbsup:

    Makes sense. Southwest is one of the few domestic airlines that doesn't charge for the first two checked bags--as long as they're within the required size and weight! :)

    The problem for overseas guests is that you won't have any tags to put on your bags so you will need to collect your luggage and do the double bag drop thing then pitch up at the DME desk with your luggage and then put the tags they will give you on your bags and hand them over so Disney can deliver them to your resort in a few hours. You might as well take them with you on the coach yourself.

    It doesn't seem so magical now :(

    Well it's still free so I suppose they think it's magical.
