    Looking forward to being in WDW Thanksgiving. I've heard of shipping items home rather than carrying in luggage on the plane. (we'll buy too much again, LOL) How do you recommend doing this? thank you!!!

    Hi Jerry!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your excellent question! I love spending Thanksgiving at Walt Disney World Resort! My family tries to visit over the Thanksgiving holiday every year! In my opinion, it's the perfect way to start off our holiday season.

    Your question put the biggest smile on my face because my family and I just returned home from a magical vacation at Walt Disney World Resort and shipped many of our souvenirs home rather than pack them into our (already stuffed) suitcases! Haha! I'm happy to share with you how we shipped our treats home.

    I recommend taking the items you want shipped to one of the Business Centers located at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels. For example, we stayed at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and the closet Business Center to our Resort hotel was located at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. We hopped onto the monorail with our bags of items to be shipped and headed straight to the Business Center at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. The helpful people working at the Business Center will carefully pack your items into boxes for you, too! Our souvenirs were delivered to our house safe and sound! The Business Centers are typically located in the conference centers of each Resort hotel with the exception of the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and Walt Disney World Swan Hotel.

    Jerry, I hope this information was helpful to you! Now you can feel free to purchase all the beautiful holiday-themed merchandise while visiting Mickey over Thanksgiving this year!
