    When will I be able to send park purchases to my hotel again?

    Hi Priscilla! Welcome to planDisney, where there's no telling how far we'll go to get the answers to your Disney vacation planning questions!

    I have a lot of favorite things to do at the Walt Disney World Resort, but I especially enjoy browsing all of the merchandise locations. There are so many different options from the Haunted Mansion-themed Memento Mori in Magic Kingdom Park to the unique options around World Showcase in EPCOT. There is something for everyone!

    Like you, I also miss the ability to have merchandise at select merchandise locations sent back to my Disney Resorts Collection Hotel room. At this time, we are unsure of when this perk will return. However, since it has returned to the Disneyland Resort, I am hopeful that it will return soon here on the east coast. Stay tuned for any announcements on the Disney Parks Blog related to the possible return of this service.

    In the meantime, I have some tips and tricks that I use. I usually start off my vacation with a trip to Disney Springs and browse the selections at the World of Disney. While not every single souvenir can be found here, a great deal can so I make my purchases and store them in my room. Also, if I see something I like in a theme park that is not a limited edition and there seems to be plenty in stock, I make a note to come back right before I leave the park so that I don't have to carry it around with me all day. If you do this, just make sure it's something you won't be too terribly disappointed in if you come back and there are no more left as there are no guarantees it will still be there! There's also the option to rent a locker at the front of the theme parks to store any bulky items for the day. Plus, some merchandise locations and resorts offer the ability to ship your items home at an extra cost. If you go with this option, not only will you not have to worry about carrying your souvenirs with you throughout the day, but you won't have to worry about transporting them home yourself in your luggage! And speaking of shipping items, some Disney Parks merchandise can be found on shopDisney so be sure to see if that's the case too!

    Priscilla, you are bound to find some wonderful gadgets and gizmos during your visit in August. If you're an EPCOT fan like me, be sure to check out the treasures that can be found in the Creations Shop!

    If you have any other questions, please reach out to me and I'd be happy to help!

    Happy shopping,
