Has anyone shipped a box of toiletries (hairspray, lotion, sunscreen, etc.) via UPS (prob one of their med or large ones) down? I'd pack it at the UPS store & send it. Just trying to figure if it might easier since then we could just fly with carry-ons and not need a checked bag for all that stuff. I know it would probably cost a bit, we're staying at the BWI but the idea of just grabbing our carry-ons is sooooo tempting. We are taking the Magic Express & won't have a car. Thanks a lot!!

We shipped about 4 big boxes down full of snacks, toiletries, and misc stuff. We were able to do it through work, so I'm not sure about the cost, but the convenience was great. We timed the packages to arrive a few days before we did. Then we just called down to the front desk and had them sent up when we were ready for them. I think Bell Services delivered them. It does take a few hours from the time you request them for them be sent over from wherever they store that type of stuff, so plan on that. Overall, it worked out great and was super easy. All I had to do was unpack them in the room. Really simple. I also took preprinted return labels, saved the boxes in the closet, and then filled them with all our souvenirs when it was time to go back. So glad I had the boxes too, we never could have fit the oversize souvenirs in carry on alone.

Yes, we ship items to our resort each time we go. Saves on having to pack them. Then we ship back when we check out. Works great. Last trip shipped out UPS and returned Fedex. About the same weight both ways, but Fedex was considerable less $.

Thanks neeleyd & nightowl! We've thought about it so many times, I think we are going to do it this time. One more thing off the list!

Do I have this correct?

If I wanted a delivery of water and a case(or two) of a sports drink that DH and I use, I can just order through Amazon and have them deliver to the hotel a day or two before we arrive?

Then just call bell services and have this delivered to my room upon my arrival?

Amazon Prime Pantry

I just noticed as I was checking water prices on Amazon that for prime members they now have Amazon Prime Pantry available.

Here is the description from the website:
Pantry boxes are large and can hold up to 45 pounds or four cubic feet of household products. As you check items off your list, we continuously track and show you how full your box is.

You can buy as much or as little as you want for a flat $5.99 delivery fee per Prime Pantry box. Save gas, save money, save time.


For a $5.99 delivery fee for a 45 pound box and looking at the prices on several items this looks like it may work out much cheaper than garden grocer. Although they don't have meat/eggs, they do have cereal, almond milk, water, lots of snacks! This may be very helpful for some.

I have always shipped things like that down before I go and never had a problem its always been there waiting for us... The issue I have right now is that UPS lost one of my boxes that I shipped coming home from Disney at the end of my trip and now I am nervous about shipping again...My mother told me not to be they ship hundreds of packages a day. It just sucked that it happened to me once. so i guess I have to have faith...lol still nervous i think i might use Fedex though...Good luck

I just shipped some items from Walmart to AoA. I arrive May 17th and it says it will be there May 14th. I would update you when I get there. Hopefully it all goes smooth

I shipped red bull, water, snacks, sunscreen, shampoo and conditioner. Just heavy thing I don't want to pack. Shipping is free with orders over $50.

Quick update. Walmart changes your name on the shipping address every time ! It happened to me three times. I had to call the resort once the package was delivered and they were able to find it and put a note that it was indeed mine although the names didn't match.

See post 1 of this thread. It tells exactly how to address the shipments,and gives the shipping addresses.

Thanks for the tip!! I'm going to check this out since I have Prime! I looked at a few items and they're about HALF the cost of Garden Grocer! Has anyone else tried this???

Since BC is a convention resort, what is the resort fee to ship from amazon or target? If it gets there before we do is it a per day charge? Thanks!
