    My nieces are staying at Port Orleans Riverside for their birthdays. Can I drop a gift off at the resort to surprise them? How will they receive it? Do I have to have something delivered or can I drop it off myself? Thank you.

    Hi, Katherine!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    I'm so excited to hear that your nieces will be celebrating their birthdays at Walt Disney World Resort!  It is certainly my favorite place to spend my birthday, and I'm sure your nieces' special days will be nothing short of magical!  Be sure to tell the birthday girls to pick up complimentary birthday buttons at the front desk of their Disney Resorts Collection Hotel or any Guest Relations location.  The well wishes they receive while wearing their birthday buttons are sure to add a little extra pixie dust to their celebration.

    It is so sweet of you to want to surprise your nieces with a special birthday gift at their resort hotel!  It's like they have their very own Fairy Godmother!  When I was celebrating my birthday at Walt Disney World Resort recently, one of my best friends coincidentally had a vacation that overlapped my visit by a couple of days.  Since she was already visiting Walt Disney World Resort, it was easy for her to drop off a little gift for me at my resort hotel.  The sweet treats she delivered were such a fun surprise, and the gesture was greatly appreciated!

    If you'd like to deliver a gift to Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside for your nieces, you can go about this in a couple of ways.  If you'll be having a package mailed to the resort or dropped off by a delivery service or other business, just make sure that the package is clearly marked with your nieces' names and the word "Guest."  It is also helpful to include the date of their arrival on the package.  If you need the mailing address for the resort, it can be found on the webpage for Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside which is linked in this paragraph.  Please note that there is a small package handling fee for packages that are received through the mail by the Front Desk or delivered to your Disney Resort hotel room.

    If it's easier for you to just drop off a gift for your nieces, you are certainly welcome to do so.  Just stop by the resort hotel's Front Desk to speak to a Cast Member.  Most times, deliveries are held at the Front Desk for Guests.  Typically, Guests are notified that there is a package waiting for them at the Front Desk by a message on their resort hotel room telephone.  They can then pick up their package from the Front Desk at their convenience.  You could also give your nieces a heads-up to check with the Front Desk Cast Members for a delivery if you so choose.

    Katherine, I hope you'll visit planDisney again if you have any other Walt Disney World Resort questions.  Wishing you a magical day and your nieces the happiest of birthdays!
