He had to call multiple times, but once he started calling regularly, he finally got the package delivered. It was in limbo over a month, for a trip from Tennessee to Georgia.
I was starting to think I was going crazy, that this never happened to anyone else.

These boxes do enjoy their trips to tennessee

Hopefully disney will sort the label again and get it right this time...one can only hope.I may need to ring when we get into wdw from Australia.....if they still haven't made it.

We had 5 boxes sent to BLT 2 weeks ago. I spoke to the business center twice and the girls were very helpful. two different people on two seperate occassions told me they will hold packages for 1 month. My labels from UPS included my name and reservation number. They will not release the bags until you check in and are present in your room to acknowlege receipt as well as the handling charge. All packages arrived 7 days before check in and we experienced no problems. They store the packages at the conference center and it took about 10 minutes for them to bring it to the room.

I just wanted to add...On the first line, I had my name and reservation #. On the second "Disney's Bay Lake Tower @ Contemporary Resort" When the man at UPS started typing in the information for shipping, this heading popped up as the recommended shipping header and address for that location. Good luck!

FYI - the month hold for packages policy is not the same at all of the resorts. At the resorts without a conference center, they just don't have the room.

I have never shipped that far in advance but I do ship down decorations about 2 weeks before we get there for the room . My home resort is SSR and I have not had a problem .

Makes ya wonder what those boxes are up to maybe trying to tell you where you need to visit while you are here .

HAVE A WONDERFUL TRIP ! I hope your stuff makes it ...
What is in the boxes if you dont mind telling ? Like really good stuff from the outlet ???? I am dying to know

Can I ask what the charge was to get your boxes delivered. I have shipped to myself at both OKW and SSR and just find it strange that you have to pay to take posession of your own shipment. I understand that they have a business center and all, but my goodness, how much manpower does it take for them to receive a package and hold it for you. I think the charge is ridiculous. Pay to ship it and then pay to get it.

Fee is based on weight and usually is $5-$10 per box. When Disney outsourced the running of the conference business centers, they agreed to let them charge for all packages.
