Has anyone had any experience shipping their luggage to the resort? Not the bags themselves, but a box containing all the things one would pack for a vacation? I've been looking at sending a box FedEx and if I can keep the weight reasonable it works out cheaper than checking a bag on Spirit (which I foolishly booked before learning how evil it was).

I assume it would work the same as shipping anything else, but anyone actually try it? Also, I haven't seen a definite answer regarding shipping from the hotel to home. I'm staying at ASMo. If I take everything already packaged and labeled up to the front desk will they send it out?

I read through this whole thread a few weeks ago, but now I have new questions and I don't remember them being answered here, but I'm not going all the way back through to double check!

what is the ideal time frame to plan for delivery on your package - day of check-in, day before or 2 days before?

when you check-in, how do you retrieve the package? would front desk know or do I ask someone else for the package?

I will be staying at CR. thx!

If it were me I would probably plan for delivery they day or 2 before arrival. UPS and fedex are pretty darn good at predicting delivery dates. From what I have heard on the boards (I have not done this personally) the front desk is who would handle the package for you.

It might not be a bad idea to call ahead of time and speak with someone to put a note on your account that a package will be arriving for you. I'd also include your reservation # on the packing label if possible just to be 110% sure!

Hope this helps..

Anyone here with any experience shipping anything to Kidani Villas? I only see the address for Animal Kingdom Lodge with no distinction between the two hotels.

Thanks for starting this thread Disneyguy. We are going in June with my brother and his family and they are planning to ship items down. This thread managed to answer all our questions. Again a hearty thanks

Hello, I had a question about the items that can be shipped. We just bought into the Owners Locker and would love to bring down full size shampoos and other items, can these be shipped via ups.?

Just placed an order for 2 cases of water from Walmart. Total was $8.90 with shipping.

We arrive at Pop Century this Saturday (May 12). It said delivery would be between May 9-14. Hope everything goes smoothly. Worst case scenario it's only $9.

Thanks for the tips everybody!!

I just did this. I packed a box with all of our clothes, sunscreen, etc., for the week and sent it via UPS. I also had some baby supplies delivered from diapers.com and a food delivery from gardengrocer. At the end of the trip the resort concierge arranged for the boxes to be shipped back. I brought a small carry on the plane anyway, with a change of clothes, bathing suits and a small amount of baby supplies just in case. It was no problem, the box was there and delivered to the room once we arrived. I highly recommend doing it, it was great!

I don't see why not, I sent a box of supplies including toiletries via UPS.

I just got back from a stay at Kidani (I rented points) and shipped a box via UPS as well as had a diapers.com order delivered there. I did put Kidani on the shipping label after AKL, not sure if that was necessary or not, I figured it didn't hurt.

My delivery arrived about 5 days before I checked in. When I checked in I mentioned the delivery and she said yes, it was noted that it had been received. Someone from bell services brought it to the room.
