    Are there plans to bring back Merchandise delivery in 2024? Disneyland has. At least delivery to the front of the park?

    Hi Julie! Welcome to planDisney. I'm so happy to answer your question today!

    Oh, resort merchandise delivery, how I miss thee. Let me count the ways! Don't worry, I won't actually list them off, especially because our lists are probably similar! Suffice it to say, I love to shop for merchandise and it was so nice to have it delivered straight to my hotel room.

    At this time, we do not have any details as to if or when merchandise delivery to the Disney Resorts Collections Hotels or the front of the parks will return. You can follow along with the Disney Parks Blog to look out for any details that may be announced closer to your trip! As you pointed out, it has returned to the Disneyland Resort, so I have my fingers crossed that it will return to the east coast sooner rather than later!

    In the meantime, I have some suggestions on what you can do to help minimize walking around with your brand-new favorite souvenirs! Buckle up, because I have a bunch of suggestions!

    • I usually stop at World of Disney in Disney Springs at some point during my trip (usually the first day or evening). While this store doesn't have every souvenir, it certainly has some great ones and I can usually find something for everyone. Then, I just store it in my room for the rest of the vacation!
    • You can rent a locker at the front of the parks to store your merchandise until you are ready to leave for the day.
    • At certain merchandise locations, you can usually mail your items home for an additional cost so you not only don't have to worry about carrying them around all day, but you don't have to worry about figuring out how to get them home with you!
    • If you spot something you really like and there seems to be plenty of it and it is not a limited edition, you can always make a note of it and purchase it on your way out of the parks for the day. Keep in mind that there's no guarantee it will be there when you come back later and if you have your heart absolutely set on that item, I wouldn't recommend this option. But if you're willing to take the chance and won't be too terribly disappointed if it's not there later, it's always an option. 
    • And lastly, you can sometimes find Disney Parks merchandise on shopDisney, so you can check to see if the item is in stock there and just have it shipped home. With this option, there are sometimes exclusive deals for online shoppers and usually free shipping if you spend a certain amount of money. So if you play your cards right, you might be able to get it cheaper than in the parks and shipped home for free! Talk about a win-win!

    Julie, I'll keep my fingers crossed that this fan-favorite service will be returning. If you have any other questions, please reach out to me and I'd be happy to help!

    Luck favors the prepared,
