I was just at SSR in March - and the front desk CM was very kind and had my UPS package at the front desk for me. But, things could have changed since then. (change happens, right?)

Or - maybe since Yacht and Beach Club are a "convention" resorts, that could be the issue as well. I hope that is not the case in August when we go to BLT. I was planning on shipping a box...

Hi! I would like to send a gift card down as a surprise for a friend. She is staying at ASMo, so I would imagine they won't charge anything. Will she have to ask for it at the front desk? Or will they hand her the envelope, leave it in her room?

Just for future reference - if I were to send a gift card in an envelope to a friend at a convention resort, will they charge my friend to pick up her envelope? Or are envelopes and boxes handled differently?

I would send the gift card to your friend's house prior to her trip.

Has anybody sent a bottle of liquor with your package via UPS? I'm getting ready to send a box and have a plastic fifth of Seagrams 7 and was wondering if there's going to be any issues? It's just one bottle and have it packed with my other things. Thanks!


Never mind as I found out you cannot ship alcohol. Have to go offsite If I want my JD!

Send it to the resort and check this thread for the address and how it should read when mailing it out.

Good Question! We also will be flying southwest in June. It will be 4 of us and I guess each of us get 2 checked bags. I was just thinking we could pack a suitcase or two with snacks to save on shipping. Does that sound right? It's been several years since I've flown so I am really out of practice.

Hi! I'm new arround here so first I'm going to introduce myself.
My name is Milena and I'm from Argentina. My family and I love to spend our vacations at Disney World!

I come to you with a problem. In other visits I have had packages purchased from Amazon delivered to the Pop Century Resort without much trouble. This time we are also staying at this resort but I can't seem to make Amazon accept the adress...

It tells me that the street name or number is invalid and I don't really know why . I just enter "1050 Century Drive"!

Could you please help me out? It's rather urgent, I should have the things deilvered by the end of next week at best. If they arrive later than that, as I return from a cruise on the 26 and stay 1 more night at a different hotel, I could come arround to pick up my packages but I don't know if they will keep them for me for such a long time. Is that possible?


Thank you!!!

Wine Shipped to Resort?

Great thread with some great info. I have a question that I can't seem to find the answer to here. Can I order wine (I'm assuming one of the online grocery stores there would have it) and have it shipped to my resort along with my groceries? Or is this not legal in Florida? I have used GardenGrocer in the past, with great results, but didn't order wine.

Staples order

We are arriving late on Mar 3 (Saturday). We are ordering water and pop from Staples. When should we place the order?

Garden Grocer will deliver wine

I realize I'm answering my own question, but am posting here in case anyone else would like to know. I placed my order online last night with GardenGrocer.com. I added in my wine request in the 'comments' section at checkout, which then gives you a notification to call and confirm your request with Garden Grocer. I called and spoke with a nice lady who said the wine was no problem. They will ring it through as a separate order and deliver it with my groceries when I arrive. It was as easy as that!
