    Has package delivery returned at the Disney Collection Hotels yet? I used to love purchasing something in the parks or Disney Springs and then sending it back to the gift shop at my hotel!

    Welcome to planDisney, Kim. I love that I'm answering your first question!

    I must admit that you are speaking my language. This perk was a great one and I'm also hoping that it will make its grand return one day. However, at this time, package delivery from the gift shops to your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel is not available. It has returned to the Disneyland Resort, so I'm hopeful it'll make its way back to the Walt Disney World Resort as well, although it's a much bigger operation! But don't worry, there are some strategies to help minimize carrying souvenirs around the park with you.

    I do a lot of my souvenir shopping at the World of Disney in Disney Springs. While it doesn't have every piece of merchandise, it does have a lot and I can always find something for myself and my friends and family. I usually visit this store at some point and bring my haul right to my resort hotel room afterward (or right after a stop at Gideon's Bakehouse). Also, if I find something early on in the day in one of the theme parks that is plentiful and is not a limited edition, I wait to purchase it until toward the end of the night so I only have to carry it out of the park. Of course, I only do this for items that I know I can live without. After all, there's never a guarantee the item will be there hours later.

    You can also opt to ship your item home directly from many merchandise locations for a fee. In fact, a Guest Shipping Station run by FedEx just opened in Disney Springs to help Guests ship their purchased items home or to other destinations. This not only saves you from carrying them around with you, but also from packing them and carrying them home with you! And then there's the option to rent a locker at each park to store your item until you are ready to go for the day!

    Kim, I wish you the best vacation at the resort and only the happiest shopping experiences! If you have any other questions, just send them my way!

    Happiness is a state of mind,
