AdventureDo you feel as if you are bringing extra luggage every time you travel to Walt Disney World?

Disney has come to the rescue once again by allowing guests to ship any items they would like directly to their Walt Disney World Resort. As long as the items are shipped 2 weeks before your scheduled arrival date, resorts will have your packages waiting for you when you check-in.

If you are flying or find that your car will not fit that last suitcase, go ahead and box up items such as food, extra clothes, or even a stroller.

This will save you a ton of money at the airport since you will not have to check an extra suitcase!

Before you ship your package, make sure to call your resort to get the exact mailing address and label the package with your date of arrival, the name that your reservation is under, and “Guest” so the resort will not get it confused with other packages they receive from the rest of the property.

How many of you have shipped packages to your resort? Did you have any issues upon arrival and did you find it a lot easier to travel?

    I’ve never shipped from home but I have had items delivered from retail outlets. Items like cases of water, energy drinks, and cereal bars.

    It was super easy I just picked it up at the front desk when I checked it. The only thing was I felt sorry for the little Cast Member that carried my water from wherever they hold the parcels. He was completely out of breath and exhausted when he returned.

    Hey Peyton, I’ve had something shipped to our resort before, but in a slightly different context. On our last trip (our honeymoon), in the rush of all the wedding prep, etc. I got to WDW and forgot my sunglasses in my car which was left at my mom’s house. They’re prescription glasses, so I couldn’t just purchase a new pair, and considering we had two weeks of ‘fun-in-the-sun’ ahead of us, there was no way of going without. The front desk folks were great, and walked me through every step of the process to get my sunglasses to me. I was a little hesitant and worried that they might get lost, since WDW is such a complex campus, but the next day, my glasses arrived! It was awesome! Such a smooth operation!
