    I will be at Disney for 12 days in May, at All Star Movies and I would like to buy some things by and send to my hotel room. Are there any problems if the package arrives before me? How many days could this happened? Are there any storage taxes?

    Hi Marisa,

    It's no problem at all to send packages to yourself at your Disney resort hotel. Hundreds of guests do this every day. Not only is it OK if your boxes arrive before you do, I would try to time it so that they do arrive a day or two before you do, that way you'll still be fine, even if there are postal delays. There is no specific "how many days before I arrive can the package arrive" limit. I think that anywhere up to a week in advance would be reasonable. If at all possible, you should try to have "hold for guest" and the date of your arrival printed somewhere on the address label.

    There are no package storage fees for regular individual guests. There are sometimes fees for businesses or corporate guests who have many boxes sent ahead for a convention at WDW, but this doesn't sound like it applies to you.

    Enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World.
