    WE are traveling to Bay Lake Tower in Novemeber. We would prefer to ship our luggage rather than deal with the airlines and airport. Is there a preferred service, and what is the procedure?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Joel. When my fellow panelists and I see a returning guest we are more excited than Officer Judy Hopps on patrol, so let's chat about Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort and make sure you're ready for a (Nick) "Wilde" vacation!

    Joel, you're welcome to ship your luggage in advance of your stay, but please be mindful of a few specifics. First, when mailing your luggage, it's important that your package is correctly addressed with your specific resort's address and your name clearly written after "Guest:" on the second line. For example if Zootopia's Mayor were checking in, he would use the following: 

    Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort
    GUEST: Mayor Lionheart, check-in date: XX/XX/XX
    4600 North World Drive
    Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830-8413

    Upon arrival, packages can be picked up at the Front Desk or at Bell Services. Joel, I do highly recommend keeping the tracking number for your packages handy in case any Disney villains, like Assistant Mayor Bellwether, have sinister plans that must be thwarted.

    Finally, once your vacation has concluded, if you're hoping to ship your luggage home, please check out this information about business centers at Walt Disney World. Make sure you scroll down to "Shipping and Postal Services" where you will see details about outgoing packages and fees.

    Joel, best wishes for a wonderful vacation and perfectly shipped packages! Please come on back to the Zootopia Police Department (oops, I mean planDisney) with any other cases... er- QUESTIONS!
