Shipping cost?

We have always shipped a box down to our resort for years. Can you let me know what the cost was for you to ship your box this year? I'm coming up with close to $35 to ship our box this year....in past years its been $15 or under....

I'm debating just doing a checked bag for $20....

So I'm about to ship our costumes down... I can send them today and they arrive the day before we do, or I can send them tomorrow and they should arrive the same day we get there....

I think I might opt to send it out today as the UPS system is telling me it doesn't recognize the address (AoA address) and it might delay shipment??? Anyone else get this screen or is this because the AoA is such a new resort? Or maybe the fact that I'm using the first line in the address lines for our reservation number and the second address line as the actual address. Any suggestions?

Also has anyone ever then shipped something HOME from the resort? Should I have an UPS label printed for a specific send out date ready to go or will they do that at the front desk?

Update - just got off the phone with the AoA hotel CM... when I asked about UPS not recognizing the address she confirmed it's because it's so new probably not in their system yet.

More importantly, someone correct me if she's wrong, she said NOT to put your Reservation number or Room number on the package, instead provide your name and your check in date and they can find the rest of the information from that. But identity thieves can utilize your reservation number or room number to collect personal information.

Hi! I was wondering if anyone ever tried to ship their Photopass+ to their resort, would that work?

Hi all,

Sorry, it's our Back to School night tonight so I haven't read through this whole thread.

It's been a year since we last went...and our first time staying at AS Music.

Does AS Music charge for receiving deliveries?

Does AKV Jambo charge for receiving deliveries (last few times I went they did not)?

Does OKW charge for receiving deliveries (I thought they might).

Thanks!

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!
Just curious as to what kind of problems you had with Spirit? I have flown with them several times in the past and have had no problems, although it has been a few years since I have flown with them.

I have used GardenGrocer in the past, with great results, but didn't order wine.
I know that Garden Grocer has Beer. I belive you must fax them your D.L.
The instructions are on thier web site.

Lots if people have done it. Varies significantly depending on the resort. I'm planning to ship a Christmas tree and an air bed to BWV in Dec.

We stayed at CBR in June and I shipped our boxes on Monday for our Saturday arrival. When we checked in they had them and delivered them to our rooms for us. It was really painless and easy. I am planning on doing it again on our next stay in 2013. We also brought prepaid shipping labels and used the boxes to ship stuff home. They took care of all of it for us when we checked out.

Disneystore.com deliveries to OKW

Hi we will be checking into OKW next june, (I know a long time away) and I am thinking of ordering some goodies for my kids via the disneystore.com (princess dresses etc, I'm sure they will still be selling them come may time ) and wondered if I could get it delivered to the resort and whether I would get charged for delivering it there by the hotel. Also how much in advance should I order it to get there in time, some items will be personalised. Thanks and hope someone can advise me.

The address listed in the beginning of the post that is listed for the Port orleans Riverside is not recognized by ups when I go to print the label. Any suggestions?
