    I recently read that WDW was no longer allowing purchases to be sent to the resort you are staying at. Is this true? Will it be reinstated?

    Hi again, Cheri! 

    You are a woman after my own heart! I am a power Walt Disney World shopper! 

    At this time, the shops on the Walt Disney World property are not sending your purchases to your resort for pickup. For the most up-to-date information about this, visit the merchandise pickup and delivery website
    In the meantime, most Walt Disney World retail locations will ship your purchase home for you. I recommend trying to do as much shopping at one time as possible (like at MouseGear in Epcot or The Emporium in Magic Kingdom), so that you have just one box coming home to you. 

    We have used this service many times in the past, and have always had such good luck. The cast members in charge of shipping do an excellent job of packaging up even the most breakable Christmas ornament to ensure it arrives home to me in one piece. 

    We also try to plan to shop on the way OUT of a theme park, so that we can carry it right back to the resort. But, I do know that sometimes you just HAVE to purchase the item right then! I definitely pack an extra duffle bag inside our suitcase in order to carry my treasures home. 

    Please come back to visit us at planDisney with other questions that arise as you plan your Walt Disney World vacation! 

    Happy Planning and Shopping,
