Disney World Quick Tip…Avoid Schlepping Souvenirs
One thing I love to do at Walt Disney World is shop for souvenirs. Something I hate as much as I love shopping is carrying those things around all day long. There is an alternative, the “package delivery service” available at all Disney merchandise stores. Unfortunately, if you are staying off site, the service is not available to you. It is just one more of the perks for staying in a Disney resort. As you prepare to pay for your purchases just let the cashier know before he/she begins to ring up your items that you would like the items delivered to your resort. You give them the information they need i.e. name, resort, and anything else they require and you walk away from the cash register carrying only the receipt they give you. As if by Magic (yup – it’s Disney) the items will arrive at your resort approximately 24 hours later.
We use this service every visit and have never had an issue. There is one word of caution, you want to avoid using package delivery on the day before you check out because there are no guaranteed delivery times and since check out time at most resorts is 11:00 AM it’s very likely your packages will not arrive at your resort before you check out. You probably wouldn’t have time to pack them even if they got there in the morning because of the check out time. Based on our past experiences you can use the system with confidence. Enjoy your Walt Disney World visit (and the shopping too).
