I find shipping your things before you arrive HUGE money saving idea. Delta airlines charges $25.00 per check-in luggage each way. We're a family of 4, so it would be $100.00 going and another $100.00 coming home.

So we thought of combining all ou rthings into ONE large suitcase, but I found the size limits and discovered our bag is 3 inches too big and it would cost $175.00 to ship there and another $175.00 to return home.

Forget that.

We sent off our food and snacks in a box to our resort and it only cost us $15.00 to ship it. Our clothes went out today and it's only $ 23.00 to ship there and another $23.00 to return home.

SUCH a HUGE savings.

PLUS..... by shipping through UPS, we get a tracking number to keep up with our box and not risk the airlines LOOSING our luggage.

See? Cheaper AND safer.

That actually makes a lot of sense.. The reservation number oughta be enough.

I think I may delete the dates bit. It's definitely NOT a requirement.

Ten to fifteen dollars depending I think. Call the resorts business center for the exact amount.

The the CR main line.. (407) 824-1000 they can transfer you to the Business Center.

I love your idea! I have bought groceries online at gardengrocers’ earlier, but sending groceries and clothes direct is a huge money saver.

It works.. just very slowly and sometimes shipments can be at Disney but sitting at the central processing point longer than they should.

That's the nuts and bolts of it. Glad it all worked out for you!

Thank You CanadianGuy for this Thread especially the part about not using USPS, DH works or USPS and I know he would have fought me about using UPS etc but now he will have to listen to me

This may sound like a stupid question but I'm going to ask it anyway...
Do you just bring the suitcase to the UPS store as is or does it go in a box? Also, does it go by weight or size? Sorry to ask so many question but this sounds like a GREAT idea. The thought of not having to take the suitcase to the airport is awesome.
Thanks,
Laurie

We are staying at the coronado springs resort in august and want to order a couple of cases of water since we will not have a car.
Since this is a convention center(we will not be there on a convention)_ I assume I will have to pay a fee. Does anyone know the fee? Or is there a number where I can call to find out?
Another question. When I check in do I ask at that desk about my water or do I have to go to the convention center?
Sorry this is our first visit to this hotel. We have had water delivered to pop century and when we checked in someone gave us our water on the spot.
Thanks

We are staying Club Level at the Poly and are thinking about using Garden Grocer this trip for bottled water and diapers. How does that work with a CL room? Is it at the front desk, the CL checkin, or do they deliver it to your room? Do you have to be there when it arrives?

Has anyone got the link to a good grocery delivery store? How much do they charge to deliver to a Disney resort (i'll be staying at BC)?

Thanks

Florida has some very tight restrictions on alcohol shipping. It's possible, but the hoops aren't probably worth it. You'd do better either buying on site, or contacting a local distributor to deliver after you arrive.
