    Can I ship a “Welcome” package to the resort prior to our stay so that it is in the room when we arrive for our children? And also if we buy merchandise while there, will they ship from the resort to our home since we are flying? Thanks!

    Welcome to planDisney! Jeremy something tells me you are going to be the coolest guest I reply to this week.

    No matter which of the Disney Resorts Collection Hotels you have selected they all have a more than will set of Cast Members ready to help with your requests. The staff was so welcoming when we first arrived during our last stay. The resort lobby is where you will find Bell Services. These folks will be holding your package if you chose to send it ahead. There is a $6 handling fee for packages. Prices are subject to change. What I can recommend to get the kids involved during the check-in at the front desk is to tell them you have a package waiting and you don't know who it is from. I love surprising my kids and these are the kind of antics I am usually up to. When it comes to shopping for merchandise and sending your package home there are options but they no longer include sending purchases to resorts. But you can ship directly to your home when you make your purchase at most merchandise locations. If you make a big purchase all in one location you can have it all shipped at once. The Emporium inside of Magic Kingdom Park is my one-stop shop for gifts for everyone's Disney shopping style.

    While you are inside of the Magic Kingdom do not forget to let loose and be a child. I find my children get confused when I run around doing silly things. If there is any place on earth that you can it certainly is here. Before the night ends make sure to save a nice spot to take in the fireworks extravaganza Happily Ever After. This nighttime spectacular has taken over the skies above Cinderella Castle and has been capturing tears since its return in April. I can confirm the tears are real and you will never have your children this age again physically. But what I do know is that while they won't always be this age, if you hold them close now they will live on in those magical memories you create at this age forever. 

    I hope this information helps make your trip a little easier and a ton more magical. If you have any other questions please stop by and ask me a question anytime.

    See ya real soon,

    Jeremy A.
