    I am planning to fly to Disney world in July. This will be the first time we fly. Can I ship purchases made at the park/resorts back home? What is the fee for this? Do I need to provide a box/label/postage before leaving home? Thanks!

    Hi, Melissa!

    I *may* have once or twice, or many more times than that, purchased more than my darling Mickey Mouse suitcase can carry home. But Hakuna Matata, no worries, we'll get your magical goodies home to you!

    Your easiest option is to ship your items home right when you are purchasing them at the shop. I especially recommend this if you purchase a large item like a piece of artwork or a monorail or castle playset. The cast member at check-out will be happy to let you know the shipping charges. This way, the friendly "behind the scenes" cast members can pack up your items safely in appropriate shipping boxes and you never have to worry about a thing. Plus, it is fun to have that magical package show up a few days after you get home.

    Another option is to use the Ricoh Business Center if your resort has one. The business center will have shipping containers and mailing services, all for a fee of course.

    Your final option is ask your resort concierge. This gets a bit trickier because you will need to have shipping boxes, tape, materials. They will charge postage plus a per package handling fee. This is probably my last option of preference. Time is so limited on vacation, do not spend it packing up boxes!

    I hope whatever way you decide that you have LOTS of fun items that you need to get home. I have had some serious boxes of Christmas ornaments sent home from the Days of Christmas store in Disney Springs, and I do not regret a single one! Happy Shopping!

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!
