We are staying at okw in June and I want to buy my kids some stuff from the Disneystore.com (got a better selection of things than here in the UK) and I've been looking recently and they keep having great promotions and sales. I would love to buy stuff now but know it would get shipped straight away to either me here in the UK (at a massive postage cost) or to okw over 3 months before we check in which is a bit early I think .

What I am wondering is how early would be not too early to order stuff from the disneystore.com to get delivered to okw? I really want to get some stuff for goody bags for arriving at Disney.

Thanks.

USPS Priority mail

I see the original post from 2010 suggest not to use USPS. Do they still only deliver to the PO box or is USPS policy changed at delivering right to the resort. The only local way of shipping we have is USPS. Do you think if I shipped Priority 10 days before our arrival, our box will make it to CBR on time?

Package

If you call the desk, once you are in the room for the night. Will they deliver your shipped packages to your room?

I called CBR the USPS does not deliver directly to the resorts. You do need to send fedex or UPS. I ordered from Garden grocery.

My husband ordered something from a photography store to be shipped to CSR and it's being sent by USPS. Now that it's already en route, does anyone know if the package will be automatically forwarded to CSR from a central shipping point, or do we need to call to track it down? Any guesses on how long that typically takes?

I had called CSR to check on any special delivery instructions, and they didn't mention anything about *not* using USPS.

Medical food/beverage shipped to resorts

My nephew needs to be on a feeding tube throughout the night. My brother-in-law wants to FedEx the liquid to CBR for our June ressie rather than deal with the airlines. However, they are concerned about what will happen to the shipment until we arrive. (They will ship it so that it arrives a day or two before we arrive.) Has anyone had any experience with shipping special foods or beverages to a WDW resort? I suggested calling CBR and speaking to them directly, but I am curious as to anyone's experiences good or bad? Thanks.

I called back today and double checked with the CBR manager. When asked do they receive packages and ship packages out for resort guests they said yes. When I asked specifically about USPS...they said no. I am picking up UPS boxes to pack and they will ship out for us from there, they stated they would do that.

I am surprised to hear about resorts not dealing with USPS at all. My understanding was that the worst possible outcome would be that the shipment would get funneled through Disney's PO Box and slowly make its way to your resort -- sometimes so slowly that you would already have been there for a day or two. Outright non-delivery of USPS packages seems pretty harsh.

How long will a resort hold a package for? I don't want to end up odrering a package 2-3 weeks before we leave, expecting a longer delivery time, only to find it has been delivered within a week and Disney will be unable to hold it for us!

I've never heard of anything having a problem with packages being held. And I've heard of several held for at least a week. My last one probably arrived 4 or 5 days in advance to Boardwalk. They also held it even though it was my name and the reservation somehow got changed to my sister's name. Took them a while to find our check-in materials; no problem with the package.

My son also has a feeding tube and I was thinking about shipping his supplies and formula down via UPS since it's a lot to bring on the plane (at least one big suitcase to check and then another bag or two to carry on, in addition to all our clothes etc). I hesitate to label it with anything "medical" in case someone thinks it's more exciting than it really is and takes it. But I'm also afraid of our luggage getting lost. He eats nothing by mouth, he lives solely on this special formula due to his medical condition.

Kidani Village

Does Kidani Village have a different mailing address from the Animal Kingdom Lodge? All I can find is the address for the Lodge.
