Thanks

Thanks!!
I appreciate your quick response. We are going there for a week in July. I've never been to Kidani, but I've stayed at The Animal Kingdom Lodge and loved it! We're very excited. Any tips I should know?

Today I was. Given by a resort CM over the phone:

1850 Animation Way
Attn: name and check in date
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830

She said they don't like for packages to arrive earlier than 10 days before your visit. I'm seriously considering shipping some items

Kidani is very lovely! It was my first time staying there and we loved it. It's a little ways from the Jambo house but there is a connecting walkway between the two buildings, otherwise there's a small shuttle van that goes back and forth between the two buildings.

Yes! One tip that I didn't know about and I should have known. Not sure if you're getting the refillable mugs or not, but there is a soda station inside the small gift shop in the Kidani lobby. I didn't see it at all for some reason until midway during our trip

Hope you have an amazing time!

Overnight vs Ground Shipping

Hi all. Just thought I'd throw a suggestion out there for anyone shipping to the resorts. I shipped a bunch of supplies/dry goods -- 3 boxes -- last year (we stayed at WL). My company's shipping department recommended that I ship overnight, not ground -- he said there's a reason for the gorilla throwing around the boxes in the television ads. So, I shipped overnight to WL...ground back to home. The boxes I received at WL were in fabulous condition - like they weren't even shipped. The boxes that were returned back home -- hah! I think there was actually a gorilla along the shipping route.

So, my suggestion -- if the condition of the box/contents matters to you...ship overnight. I think 2nd day was also okay, but overnight is best in this regard.

Hope this helps!

Thanks to these boards I was able to find a link to SSR's marketplace where you can pre-order food to have delivered by Disney for $10. Although I do not plan on ordering it did have the price of the items I was looking for.

this is the link:
http://advc.disney.go.com/media/dvc/...SSR_031413.pdf


My plans are to pick up the items, eggs, milk, sausage, cereal, and chips in the marketplace at SSR because it is cheaper than Garden Grocer. I am ordering the water from Amazon, (the week before we go). Nestle is $6.95 for 24pk of 16.9 oz and shipping is $2.95 which is cheaper than Disney and Garden Grocer.

Items I am bringing from home:
Lipton cup of soup
ramen noodles
dried fruit
Popcorn
salt/pepper
soup
Brownies
Candy
crackers/gold fish
Mac and cheese
potato pancake mix.
powder drink mix.

We are going May 2 through the 7.

Question Heading over to WDW next month!

I will be making an Amazon order and have it shipped while I stay on the Disney's All-Star Movies Resort.
Could someone verify if this is the correct shipping address I should be using?

Name: Roberto Branco - Hold for guest arrival: 05/01/13
Address Line 1: 1991 W BUENA VISTA DR
Address Line 2: DISNEYS ALL STAR MOVIES RESORT
City: Lake Buena Vista
State/Province/Region: Florida
ZIP: 32830-8412
Country: USA

Could anyone please confirm this is the right way to enter a WDW resort address?
Thanks!

"All hotels are in Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830
(Except Animal Kingdom Lodge which is Bay Lake, FL 32830)."



This is not true!!!! I attempted to send my boxes yesterday via UPS to Animal Kingdom Lodge and followed the directions on the first page. The automated address and zip verification at the UPS store kept showing an error and would not let the package be shipped using the Bay Lake address. In order for it to be delivered AKL it had to present with the Lake Buena Vista, FL address and zip code. Please correct this on the first page. I sure hope my boxes get to their destination!

You'll be fine. My cousin just returned from a stay at AKL and ran into the same thing. UPS changed the city from Bay Lake to Lake Buena Vista and they got their supplies without any issues.

last summer, surprisingly, i got to my resort early, and actually got my room at 11am. so i took the bus to DTD and then got a taxi to Goodings. asked ther driver how long would a wait for a car back...he asked where i was staying, etc and he said for $35 he would wait for me, then take me back to the all star music. i thought that wasnt a bad idea. so i ran into goodings, got 2 cases of soda (love my pepsi) a case of water, a ton of grapes and box of zip lock baggies, a small cake for my birthday, snacks, the cups of cereal etc and the driver took me right back to music. took less than 2 hrs from the time i left the resort until i got back...a CM met me at the place where the taxi pulled in with a cart...he took all the packages, asked what room, and was off...by the time i got to the room (obviously i walk slower than him) he was standing by the door, i opened it, and he put all the packages on the table and was gone. i will probably do this again...esp since i usually stay from 10 and up...was worth it. and i picked up stuff i would not have thought to order.... worked for me

Besides Amazon and Costco, what other websites have anyone here ship from?

I checked Costco but their stuffs (water) seems expensive and so is Amazon (sunscreen and Kleenex). I found the stuffs I want cheaper at Walgreens.com but their shipping address page is so limited, I can't squeeze in my name, the reservation number, Disney resort name and address. Any suggestions?

Please help. I see where people are ordering sodas from Walmart. When I go to Walmart.com it shows that sodas are in store only and if I select their grocery delivery and enter POR's address it says that delivery is not available. What am I doing wrong?

Good morning. I am trying to have a package shipped to AoA. I called and got the address which is the same as what is posted online. I am using Costco. It says they can't find that address and the order can't be placed. Has anyone else had this issue.

I just sent a package to Pop and had no issues!

Thanks
