    Thnx for all your help. One more ?. I know that you get some perks when staying at resort but it is not in our budget. Can I get souveniers left at the front gate for end of day pick up or must they be carried around? Or can I get a locker? Thanks

    If you stay at a WDW hotel, you can have purchases made in the theme parks sent to your resort for you. However, even if you're not staying on-site, you can still have theme park purchases sent to a pick-up desk at the front of the park. It generally takes about two hours for in-park purchases to make their way from the park shops to the pick-up desk, so this works great for items bought in the morning, but not as well for items bought later in the day.

    If you want to use the package transfer service, just tell the cashier at the shop where you've made your purchases. He or she will give you a brief form to fill out (name, address, etc.). They will give you a receipt (keep this, you'll need it at pick-up) and tell you approximately what time your bag will be at the pick-up desk. There is no charge for this service.

    There are also lockers available near the front of each of the theme parks. Prices can change, but when I used one at the Magic Kingdom this summer, the lockers were $10.00 per daily rental, with a $5 refund when the key is returned.
