    My family of 3 are spending a week in WDW at the end of September. I want to visit Downtown Disney on our last day to do some early Christmas shopping. Will I be able to have packages sent to our home in NJ? Don't want to sacrifice a park day for shopping.

    Hi Jacquelyn!

    Mailing souvenirs to your home in New Jersey is a smart decision especially when you consider the extra fees associated with added airline baggage weight.

    Since you live outside of Florida, consider having your items shipped home directly from the shop in which your purchase was made. Disney will not charge you the sales tax on your items, though you will have to pay for shipping fees which typically average about $8.95 and up.

    The front desk of your Disney resort can also help you with shipping things home. There is a surcharge in addition to the the regular cost of shipping, but this is a very convenient option for hotel guests.

    Thanks for taking the time to visit us at the Walt Disney World Moms Panel and feel free to send more questions our way in the days leading up to your trip! May your Disney vacation be practically perfect in every way!
