    Hi there Mom's panel! I was wondering, can I ship a box of essentials (toiletries, non-perishable snacks, maybe a surprise for my 5 year old) to our DL Resort Hotel ahead of our arrival? Trying to minimize luggage. Thanks!

    Hi, Patricia!

    I love that your box of essential items includes a surprise for your little Mouseketeer. You are such a fun mom!

    You may send a box to your hotel. Make sure to have the correct address of your hotel. Clearly mark on the front of the box "GUEST-PATRICIA LAST NAME" along with your arrival date. Allow plenty of time for the package to be delivered and sorted. I suggest that you put a tracking number on your delivery so you keep an eye on it as it travels from your home to your Disneyland Resort hotel.

    When you check-in at your Disneyland Resort hotel, let the Cast Member know you had a package shipped. They can let you know how to retrieve your box so you can unpack all of your goodies!

    My best advice is to not over pack for your vacation. Unless you are planning for a fancy night out, everything is resort casual, so no need to pack too much. I also like to have a bit of extra space in my suitcase in case I find a special souvenir (or 2!) that I need. Hey, I need to plan ahead for my shopping time!

    Wishing you a magical visit to the Disneyland Resort!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
