Well I spoke to Walmart. They were no help. Then I called the Yacht Club Convention Center and spoke with a very helpful person who said they will hold my package for 30 days and note the real name that should be on our package when it arrives with the ridiculous name that Walmart put on the label. Fingers crossed that my stuff is there when I arrived. FYI, she said they don't really need the res#, just the name, so if you order from Walmart, just put the name if there's no room for the res#.

Did using the "Prime Pantry" work out well? I'm excited to try it!

Not the person you asked but we're just back and Prime Pantry was awesome. We shipped water, Snacks, and some granola bars and pop tarts. I kept the order to under $30 including the shipping so that it wouldn't be a huge deal if it didn't arrive.

It wasn't waiting when we got there. I think because Amazon says allow 4 days but it came in 2. Luggage services was super helpful, took the tracking number, and it was in the room when we came back from the Park that evening. I asked about it around 4 and they told me it would be delivered within 2 hours.

Honestly, I wish I had done it on last years trip to Hawaii and will do it on all future vacations.

DH and my sister's DH also both packed a box of wine in their suitcases. Those made it just fine too.

This makes me happy!! I've been going back and forth on whether or not to just use Garden Grocer or try Amazon since I have Prime. Amazon is way way cheaper so I'm going to go with it!!

Thank you!

I hadn't thought of that way to get wine I might try that too!

I'm wondering if anyone can tell me exactly how much the fee is for having a package delivered to a convention resort. I am staying at beach club and wondering how much more it would cost me if I had a case of water delivered.

I'm wondering this too for Coronado Springs. Does it go by weight or per package?

I have questions about shipping to the Grand Floridian (we've staying main building club level if it makes any difference). The answers might be somewhere in the 30 pages, but I just don't have time to read them all as we leave in less than 2 weeks! I really appreciate anyone who takes the time to answer instead of telling me to read through the pages I did also email the GF IPO to ask, but when they replied to my email they didn't answer the question, so I will try again with them as well.

I've shipped things ahead many times over the years, mostly snacks and odds and ends that we would be able to live without if it got lost or delayed, and now baby food and diapers. I've always shipped it all USPS priority mail, and never had any problem. So I was very surprised to read the first few pages of this thread and see that it says to not ship using the post office. It always worked like a charm for me Also, thinking back, I don't think it was ever to a convention hotel, so I never had to worry about being charged. I know we did it at WL, POR, AKL, and Poly for sure. But the USPS things doesn't seem to be only to convention hotels, is it?

So now would like to send things to the GF, both from home and from Amazon (diapers). This would probably be 3 packages, 2 from us and 1 from amazon. However, if we're going to be charged something to be able to get the boxes, I don't want to do it. This makes for some really expensive snacks/diapers/odds and ends (just to save suitcase space, and for a gluten allergy with specific snacks). I thought I heard somewhere that there was a way to ship to the hotel, and not the convention center, and to avoid a charge. Does that make any sense, or am I making things up? If the fee is unavoidable, does anyone know how much it is at the GF? In the few pages I was able to scan through I didn't really see any amounts.

Any advice is appreciated, particularly as I should be mailing things by the end of the week or early next week (I've always done it about 6-7 days ahead, and the priority boxes were always waiting at check in or delivered later that day).

We want to buy a product from Amazon and will have it shipped to our Disney hotel. At the beginning of this thread, it says NOT to use the US Postal Service delivery. How do I know what Amazon uses?

I have looked, but can't seem to find an answer. Does the Bay Lake Tower have an address, or do we ship to the Contemporary?

I can't say for sure that they never use USPS but I order a ton from Amazon and everything always comes UPS.
