    I was told that you can ship a box (mine is small gifts for my kids) to your Disney World resort & it will be waiting for you when you arrive. How do you do this to guarantee the resort receives it and has it waiting for you?

    Greetings Anne and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    As I come from Brazil I love doing some online shopping before arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort, and I always have packages delivered to my Disney Resort hotel. Many Guests also ship items in advance so they will have more luggage space while packing for their trip. 

    When you prepare the box with your kids’ presents for shipping, be sure to include the complete mailing address of your Disney Resort hotel, and that the word “Guest” is clearly featured on the front as well as the date of your arrival. I usually have purchases shipped about a week in advance to make sure that everything gets there before I do or during my stay. Once you arrive, go to Front Desk to ask about your package and have the tracking number with you to help locate it. Please note that a $5.00 handling fee is charged for every package received through Front Desk or delivered to your room.  

    Anne, I wish I could see your kids’ faces light up upon receiving their gifts. If you would like to make this moment even more memorable, please take a look at the in-room celebration and present options offered by Disney Floral & Gifts

    Thank you for sending your question our way! I hope you have a pixie dusted vacation filled with magical moments, and that you come back to visit us with more questions.

    See ya real soon!
