B&H Photo, a major camera store in New York City, ships to Canada using Purolator. I've made numerous purchases with them, shipping usually ranges from $10-$20 and they collect the PST/GST at time of purchase so nothing is due upon delivery. Why the Disney Store can't implement something like this baffles me - oh wait, they obviously CAN, they just can't be bothered to.

Well, glad i found this thread this morning, i am new to all that shopping on disneystore.com. I bought a necxlace and earings that totals 57.50$
Got the package yesterday by UPS and got charged 42.86$ of dutys

I see all the taxes and everything but i still dont understand how it coul be so expanse...

Now by reading this thread, i see you guys pick up right in the states, and the ups store. I am in Montreal, so for us Plattsburgh, NY is a great shopping destination, can someone explain how you do this shipping tho the USA and pick up there ?

Thank you very much and i think Disneystore should help their international bueyrs a little more ...

While I don't live all that close to the border (about 2 hours drive), I often do a lot of online shopping if we are planning an overnight trip to the US (Disneystore, Amazon, etc). It's usually soooo much cheaper!

I just enter my address as Mrs. **** check-in (whatever date I'm arriving) c/o whatever hotel I'm staying at, the hotel's address and phone number. I usually call the hotel just to double check that it's ok, and give them a heads up as to the number of boxes arriving.

Make sure you double check the shipping times, and order ahead by a few days to make sure you get your items. I made the mistake of picking the free super saver shipping with Amazon last time (thinking it was like Amazon.ca and it usually lands at my door in 48 hrs). Their distribution center is Los Angeles, CA and it ships by snail mail, with no signature required. I couldn't cancel it, so I had to trust the hotel that when it did arrive that they would drop it back into the mailbox to send it back. It worked, but talk about stress (it was over $200 worth of books!)

I also shop disneystore.com before every trip to WDW and have it delivered right to our resort! Great way to save on souvenirs if they have good deals in the clearance stuff!
