    Are there extras to purchase at the time of checkin? Like fun things for the kids in our room, snacks, etc.? If so, can these be purchased ahead of time? Thanks!

    Hi Matt!  You can certainly order ahead of time some very special surprises for your room. Those can include flowers, snack baskets, ears and autograph books, and elaborate room welcome packages.  All of these things can be found on the disney florist website, Take a look at the options and see if something fits perfectly for your children's interest. There are themed ideas from pirates to princess to our hero Mickey and friends.  You can order on line or call them directly.

    Please note that all floral orders can only be delivered from the second day of your vacation on.  Because of too many late room changes they cannot have things in the room before you arrive. Perhaps you requested a special room/building and at the last minute it opened up. It would be a disaster if a non-preferred room had been decorated which would then force you to have something less then what you had hoped. So Disney doesn't decorate that first day.  For the room surprises you can choose a day and a time when you know you will be out of the room. The dream makers will swoop in and set it up and when you return you will all be amazed at the magic!

    Snacks and other toys and activities can also be purchased at your resort shop. We usually make a stop there on the first day to get water and possibly breakfast items for the time we will be there. Nothing is really available through the check in process.  The resort concierge can help you obtain tickets, dining reservations, and anything else you are looking for so stop by there and let them help you with your plans.
