What do u all use
USPS, UPS or Fedex?

I wanna use USPS flat box priority but somehow feel UPS takes better care of stuff than USPS. Just lost somehting on USPS though. Prices are nearly the same so what do all of u do?

Ok, enlighten me here....I didn't realize you could send stuff. My son has food allergies, so it would be great if I could send a box with things he can eat ahead of time! Do I Just address it to myself C/O my hotel and send it a week ahead? Do you just ask for it when you check in?

Wow! That will make life so much easier for DS! We'll save a fortune by being able to buy what he needs at home, too. Maybe I'll add a toy or stuffed animal as a surprise for each child, too. Thanks a million!

UPS offers free insurance up to $100 and their tracking is superior

Have fun

This very helpful post covers most resort shipping questions.

NOTE: DO NOT SHIP United States Postal Service. Details about why this is the case are in the post here...

Checked other.

We have now made two trips since hooking up with Owner's Locker.

Great service.

They provide you with an empty locker and you can store whatever you want, well, there are a few restrictions.

Seal the locker up when you leave, drop it off at Bell Services and Owner's Locker will pick it up and take the locker back to their climate controlled warehouse where they will store it for you.

When you are ready to return for your next visit, give them a heads up and the locker will be at Bell Services waiting for you.

Could not be any easier.

You might want to take a look.

There is a sticky on the top of this thread with a link.
