Have any of you mailed items from home TO WDW so that it is there when you arrive for your vacation? I am trying to decide how early I should mail a box to the Resort. Thanks in advance.
Yes I do every year. Call the resort you'll be staying at and tell them that you are sending a package to have during your stay there and get their exact mailing address.
On the package you want to include (BOLDLY) your reservation date. When you check in , inform them at the front desk that you had a package sent ahead of time and they will be able to pull it up on the computer that it is there. They will give it to you then or deliver to your room soon after. They told me to send it Fed-X and that's what I do every year. Never had a problem. I send mine 1 1/2 - 2 weeks ahead of my reservation date. I hope this helps.
Address You can use your reservation paper that you get from WDW
Is the same Address most of the time.
Here from Calfornia you will 10 work day for grounds shipping.
so sent Monday and next week wednesday will have it.
I use UPS.
On the outside of the box on six side Print Name Reservation number
Arrival dates and your Departure Date.
I know a ups store on the way to the airport and for me is cheap then have Disney send back by fedex.
You can look up the cost on the WWW at ups or fedex.
one more Get that track number so you show that ship it and that Disney received.
The Disney resort will get a lot items from people send it.
My last trip in the back main desk office, Disney CM Had a hard time finding my box. I call the desk the CM say that when I left they found the box.
Yes I had a print out of the track number information, but had it in the room.
