    Hi, My husband, son (9), and I will be visiting Walt Disney World the week of Christmas. My son still believes in Santa and I was wondering how to surprise him with gifts on Christmas morning when we are in a room at the Pop Century Resort. TIA

    Hi Lauren!

    Walt Disney World is the perfect holiday vacation destination in the world and of course the Disney helpers will assist in making it the most memorable for your son.

    The Pop Century Resort is my favorite of all the Value resorts. I like the set up and layout of the buildings and the amenities and it doesn’t attract as many groups as some of the other Values.

    You can Ship wrapped gifts to your resort before your arrival. If you do this please make sure you have it addressed to the resort and then your name or the name that the reservation is under with the word GUEST next to it. Add the resort address and also the arrival date. Try not to ship more then a week before arrival and especially during a busy holiday time.

    When you check in you can take the box over to the Bell Staff and request them to hold this until Christmas morning. If possible they will do this and then you can call for delivery to your room or stop by and open the box and have them simply deliver the gifts.

    You might also want to check out the great holiday packages and gifts that the Disney Floral and Gifts Department can offer you. You can arrange for Christmas Day delivery to your room as well so this is another optional super surprise for your son.

    Remember that many guests will be needing special attention on this great day so please be patient and work with the cast members who will be trying to make it the best holiday ever for you and your family!
