    Hi, we are travelling from New Zealand and attending Mickeys Halloween Party, I want to order my costume on line before they sell out in the USA and get it sent directly to the resort. How far in advance of my arrival can I have it shipped to POR? Thanks

    Welcome to the Moms Panel Sarah! We're glad you're hEAR!

    You are going to have an AMAZING time at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP)!  Its one of my family's all time favorite events at the Magic Kingdom.

    Guests are welcome to have packages shipped to their resorts.  I would recommend shipping it so that it only arrives 1 to 2 days prior to your arrival (3 at the most).  I think it makes it easier for the resorts so that they don't have packages arriving too long in advance.

    Here is how you should address the package:

    Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside
    1251 Riverside Drive
    Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830

    Please hold for Guest (This should be the name that the room reservation is made under)
    Guest Arriving on (arrival date here) 

    When you check in, mention that you should have a package waiting for you.  They usually have it waiting at Check-In for you. If not, they will deliver it to your room shortly. 

    Wishing you minnie spooktacular memories :-) Allison
