    Has Disney World brought back the package pickup where anything you bought in the park could be picked up at the park entrance or they would drop it off at your hotel room? If not are there any plans on bringing it back?

    Hi Joseph! Thanks for stopping by planDisney on this magical day!

    When it comes to shopping, I'm usually not your guy. However, when it comes to the Walt Disney World Resort, I can get enough of the merchandise located all across the parks and resorts. Each merchandise location is packed with unique items that many times can only be found at that specific location. I made the mistake once of not getting a t-shirt I really wanted from a shop in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park thinking I could purchase it later elsewhere. Well, I was mistaken on this and made sure to snag it on my next visit to the park.

    Over the years, Walt Disney World has offered merchandise pickup and delivery services. Basically, if you purchased an item inside one of the parks, you could have it shipped to the front of the park to pick up before you left for the day or have it delivered back to your Disney Resorts hotel. This was great for Guests who purchased larger items and did not want to lug them around all day. These services have been discontinued for some time and have still not returned. If you find yourself not wanting to carry around your purchases, you could rent a locker at the park to store your items while you enjoy your day. Typically, you'll find lockers located toward the entrances of the parks. 

    Unfortunately, I do not have any news to share at this time of a potential return of this service. Since your visit is still a few months away, I would still hold out hope. Many Guests for quite some time continued to remain hopeful for the return of the Disney Dining Plan. Well, that has now become a reality with this option available again to Guests visiting in the new year! I suggest following along with the Disney Parks Blog for any news and announcements.

    Joseph, I hope you have a magical vacation later this year. The holiday season is a special time to be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort!

    See ya real soon!
