Question about shipping package to Disney resort

I am sure this question has been previously asked, but my search is not working. When you ship a package to a resort how do you address it? Do you put your name and dates of stay on it? I guess I am wondering how they identify it is your package?
Thanks for the info!

Wink ABC it's easy as 123 just as simple as Do-Re-Mi

Let us take AS Sports as an example

Acme Toy Company sends the back ordered doll in time for your holiday to

Disney all star sports resort
1701 west Buena vista drive
lake Buena vista, fl 32830
ATTN: John Q Public
Arriving January 24

Then when Johnny arrives he picks up the package...or if it arrives after he is there it is delivered to his room.

Ta Da

We sent our "care package" out last Saturday from our UPS store and addressed it to our resort and put our name and arrival date at the bottom of the address and also on the package. Called lastnight and it is there waiting for us.

Do they charge to recieve packages ahead of time? I read on another post that they "thought" they did. It also said something about convention resorts? I am staying at POR so I have no idea. I was thinking of having some bottled water shipped in from costco.

Here's a question. Is there a limit on how far ahead you can ship things before you arrive? Like shipping a stroller for the swap, can you ship it a month or few weeks ahead?

I shipped 3 boxes for our trip

We just returned (wah!).

All 3 were waiting for me at the desk at check in however the first to arrive was the last one they found, I had to send them back to check as I knew it was there so they must store by arrival date and not guest (guessing). No charge for the storage and pickup at all but none of mine were big boxes. Not sure if that would matter or not.

How about packing them in hard sided plastic containers (like Tupper Ware containers). We don't ship stuff, ahead but do sometimes put muffins, breakfast bars, and Pop Tarts in our checked bag. They've never arrived crushed as long as they were protected in hard plastic containers.

we were just wondering the same exact thing, also for POR. i couldn't find a definitive answer about a handling or storage fee.

In my experience, there has never been a package handling fee with the resort. I think that applies to convention type resorts.

When we checked in, the front desk called and asked to have our package brought to our room and said we would have it within 1/2 hour if we were staying in our room. After 1.5 hours, I called the front desk who transferred me to the Business Center who said they were never told to deliver the package and sent someone right up.

This was at BCV.
