Airline and Hotel Loyalty Program

Bring your membership numbers! You won't need the cards—at least that wasn't my experience—but my status with American Airlines granted me preferred boarding status and my hotel, like most in the area, participates in various hotel loyalty programs so I got those points too, for my tw0-night stay, even though my tickets and reservation were handled through the Shore Excursions Desk.
