    When will purchases made in the parks and shipped to resort return? This affects the number of things we buy.

    Hi Andrew, welcome to planDisney!

    When it comes to finding must-have souvenirs in the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, experience has taught me that if you see something, you should buy it. I'll never forget the time my husband fell in love with a 50th Anniversary polo in the Emporium at the beginning of our Magic Kingdom Park day. We decided to purchase it on our way out at the end of the day, but they ended up selling out of his size <<sigh>>. That story has a delayed happy ending as we found his size online almost twelve months later, but the initial disappointment was real!

    As you know, merchandise delivery to Disney Resort hotels from the theme parks is not currently available. As a Guest like you, I'm afraid I have no information about if or when it will return. The good news is you have a few options for dealing with any must-have items you find in the theme parks. Items that you don't want to carry around the parks with you can be stored in a rentable theme park locker. I prefer this option when there are items I wish to use or wear during the rest of my vacation. The next option is to have items mailed directly your house for a reasonable shipping fee. I like using this option for large items that won't fit in my suitcase as well as gifts. I've even shipped a whole set of dishes, and was impressed that they all arrived in one piece. The third option I'll mention is to see if what you're looking for is available online.  On occasion, I’ve found a few of my favorite things for a better price on

    I hope this information helps you prepare for your theme park shopping experiences, Andrew.

    Choose magic,
