I had the same experience. Our renters also put in our request. I just tend to think its luck.

I'm sorry if this question has been answered already but do they allow boxes to be mailed to the resort prior to arrival? I've been reading a lot of good ideas here on the boards that I thought it would be a good idea to get it mailed there before we arrive instead of having to pay for the luggage. Any feedback is appreciated! Thanks!

Hello! I have family staying at the Bonnet Creek Resort this weekend. It will be my nieces 8th birthday and was wondering if anyone could give me any help with anything I could arrange to be delivered for her. Does Bonnet Creek do anything magical as the Disney Resorts are able to arrange. Is there something that is exclusive to the resort that the concierge can help me with. Or has others used offsite companies? I tried to get ahold of concierge few min ago but was hold a long time, so I hung up and thought I ask you guys, and prob get faster answers! lol
thank you!

I dont know but logistically this seems ambitious, especially if it is something you want to take back ( which means you will either have to pay the luggage fee or go back to a post office to mail it back to yourself). Unless you have free use of a courrier it seems like a lot more work.

If you want to buy something to consume at the resort, it might be worth buying it in FLA as opposed to buying it and shipping it. The only way I can see this working is if you had a specific bottle of wine that you wanted to consume in FLA, but even then there are restrictions on shipping alcohol.

I keep envisioning Kramer and Newman in the post office truck full of empties driving up to Michigan.

Yes, you can definitely have boxes mailed to hte resort prior to arrival. Just contact the resort and they'll provide you with specific instructions as to how to do so.

You can have an offsite company (i.e., florists, food, etc.) delivered to the resort; however, depending on the vendor, some are allowed through the security gate, some are not. If you're thinking about a special arrangement or birthday cake delivered, you will need to contact concierge for specifics. They do not have those facilities onsite. Also, you might want to call them after hours as check in on Fri, Sat & Sun is a zoo.

I'd like to take LYNX buses from the Orlando airport to Bonnet Creek resort. Is there a way to get to the resort by LYNX bus? Or what would the cheapest way to get there be?

Closest LYNX stop that I'm aware of would probably be over by DTD. I'm not familiar enough with the LYNX system though to be able to tell you how long a trip, and how many transfers it would require to get from MCO to DTD. I can tell you however it likely would be quite complicated, time consuming, and annoying as it is highly unlikely to be a direct single-bus trip.

I also don't know how often the shuttle from the resort to DTD would run, as that can vary between the time of year and time of day.


As for cheapest way? I'd say maybe a shared shuttle? or sometimes, honestly, you can get a great deal on a rental car. Some towncar services will also include a grocery stop so that you can stock up the pantry in your resort room. If you don't think you'll need a car during your stay, AVIS has a pick-up/drop off by DTD, and National/Alamo are at the WDW Car Care Center and Swalphin, so you could look into quick one-way rentals from MCO to a drop off at one of those locations where the WBC shuttle would be easier to get to/from.

I saw another thread about the LYNX bus that said it was about 90 minutes from the airport to WDW property. If there's traffic it could take longer. The drive by car is only about 25 minutes. I would rent a car or take a cab.

What are the differences in a 3 bedroom deluxe and a 3 bedroom presidential---is it worth the almost $400 difference in price? (I know that is probably an opinionated question, but just curious)....I know 3 bedroom presidentials are only in building 6....Right now I have booked a deluxe but they had a presidential available.....

I initially reserved a two bedroom deluxe. After going on you tube to look at videos to compare both the deluxe and presidential I changed my reservation to Presidential. I found them to be way nicer.

I suggest you look on You Tube and then decide for yourself.

I can't say if it is worth it but one difference is occupancy, the presidential is 8 the deluxe is 10 because of the pull out couch.

We have 9 so it was either 3 bedroom deluxe or 4 room presidential. We went with the former.

I started this thread after the 1'st one ran it's coarse.But now I got Dis'ers saying that part 2 is knoll and void 'cuase they did not get on the bandwagon
before me!!

If I was a mod,all three would be linked in the sticky.Way too much info posted over the years to let get buried in the dust..

Also as a mod.I would link the hotel-resort reaviews with this forum to keep it cuaght all up to date.But thats me!!!

Someone needs to do it..
