    My daughter is wanting to send a gift to a friend that will be staying at a Disney World resort next month. She is looking for some ideas that will be cheaper than using Disney World. Can someone help us in this area? Thanks!

    Hi Teresa,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    What's more fun than visiting Walt Disney World and finding a surprise gift from a special friend awaiting you? It's so very thoughtful and fun of your daughter to want to send a gift to her friend to add some extra Walt Disney World vacation magic.

    My first suggestion for gifting some extra magic is Disney Floral & Gifts, and it sounds like you might have already checked out all their wonderfully fun offerings. I love the cool selection of themed gift baskets and all the distinctive Disney surprises you can choose to fill them.

    The Walt Disney World Resort hotels do offer mail services and package pickup. Your daughter could purchase that perfect something at a store of her liking and send it to her friend at the Resort hotel. For shipping and delivery, you would want to be sure to include the Guest's name clearly labeled with the word "Guest" and also include the Resort hotel's address. You can find the Resort hotel's address by visiting DisneyWorld.com and looking at "Places to Stay." You'll find the Resort address is displayed on the Resort hotel's page on the "Overview" tab. It's important to note that a $5 package handling fee would apply to the Guest account.

    I don't have all the details for your daughter's friend — the Guest of honor who's receiving the gift — to offer suggestions on ideal gifts or where to purchase them. There are a number of merchants who specialize in Disney-themed apparel and accessories you might want to check out. Popular shops include Happily Ever Tees, Once Upon Apparel, and Be Ear Guest.

    Teresa, here's hoping your daughter finds just the right pixie-dusted gift to send to her friend!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
