I've read (will posy link when I find it again), that Mickey is on resort tvs in the evening reading a bedtime story about his friend Duffy the Disney bear.

We're going Dec.16th for DDs b'day.
Would really love to have a Duffy bear and storubook waiting (gift wrapped preferably) in our room.

Who do I call to get this done?
Disney Florist?
BWV front desk?
Someone else?

I would order it from Disney Store & bring it only the storybook is not online yet.

I would start at MS first and see where they refer you. You may need to call Disney Florist, but you may not.

If anyone can do it, it would be Disney Florist, but even they can't have it in your room prior to arrival. You can only have arrival surprises in the room if you are staying concierge level.

You're probably not going to like hearing this but I think you're setting yourself up for disappointment in trying to pull this off.

Disney hotels have so many guests coming-and-going on the average day that it's a struggle just to get rooms cleaned before 4pm. This is particularly true at DVC resorts where occupancy is near 100% year-round.

I ordered flowers for my wife's birthday once from Disney Florist and they weren't delivered to the room until sometime in the evening. We were around until late afternoon and then left before dinner time. Flowers were discovered when we returned to the room around 10pm.

Even if some department at Disney promises that the bear will be ready and waiting in the room before you enter, I would never believe it based upon my own experiences and those others have shared.

In my case, I didn't expect the flowers to be there upon arrival. Usually the best Disney will do is guarantee that an item will be delivered on the day specified. They aren't going to commit to a certain time, before you arrive, etc.

I wish I could be more reassuring but would rather see you go into this with eyes wide open. If it were me, I'd buy whatever you can on-line, bring it with you, and somehow slip it into the room before your daughter sees. Have someone distract her in the lobby for a couple extra minutes or walk down to the pool while you make a quick dash to the room. It's really the only reliable way to pull-off something like that.
