We are going the first week of October and we are shipping down a box to our resort. This will be our first time doing this. Unless someone else has a suggestion, I plan on shipping it at least 4-5 days prior to our arrival. I'll have our name and reservation number on it. I plan on calling the front desk (BCV) to let them know it's coming. I hope it works out. We're mainly shipping dry goods, breakfast items, snacks etc.
