    I love the suggestion to send a care package ahead of your arrival at the resort. How far ahead could a package be sent? I plan to send one from Canada and want to ensure I send it early enough to arrive on time but not too early that it might be discarded

    Hi Susanne,

    Guests are welcome to have packages shipped to their resorts. I would recommend shipping it so that it only arrives 1 to 2 days prior to your arrival (3 at the most). I think it makes it easier for the resorts so that they don't have packages arriving too long in advance.  Your carrier should be able to give you an estimated time of arrival.

    Here is how you should address the package:

    Disney's ___________ Resort 
    Street Address
    City, State, Zip

    Please hold for Guest (This should be the name that the room reservation is made under)
    Guest Arriving on (arrival date here)

    If you need a shipping address, let me know which resort you'll be staying at and I'll be happy to get that for you.  In the alternate, you can contact the resort directly.

    When you check in, mention that you should have a package waiting for you. They usually have it waiting at Check-In for you. If not, they will deliver it to your room shortly.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
