Does amazon delivery to resort?

Just wondering if anyone has used Amazon to get a delivery at the resorts? I know costco delivers water but thought I could do amazon and then get apple juice too.

Don't know, but I think you would be best off with Garden Grocer. They deliver to the hotels and there's a much wider choice of food/drink.

Thumbs up Amazon delivered to the Swan

We just got back this week. I had two Amazon orders, which they managed to split into about five different shipments, but everything arrived without a problem. Everything I ordered qualified for free Supersaver Shipping.

I used the Swan/Dolphin shipping address, as well as putting my confirmation number in brackets after name.

I order from Amazon every year and have it delivered to POP. I've never had any problems. I order about 6-7 days ahead of time.

If you need water or bulk snacks like M&Ms, Pop-Tarts, or hard candy, check out Staples and Office Max. Many times, they offer free shipping.

Prices on Amazon and Office Max have always been substantially cheaper than Garden Grocer.

I have heard that the resorts are now charging to hold shipments though. Can anyone confirm?

Even with a charge from the resort, I think you'll still save money over GG.

Hi everyone,

I'll be going for the first time to WDW soon and I was hoping I could order an Amazon Kindle while staying in the hotel (I'll be at BC, btw). I sent an e-mail to enquiry about the matter to guests information at WDW website and I got this reply:
While we truly appreciate your interest, receiving, tracking or returning packages from third party vendors is not a service offered by Walt Disney World.

A United States Post Office is available in Lake Buena Vista, approximately one mile from Downtown Disney. To check availability of post office boxes for rent, please call them directly (407) 238-0223.

If you require additional assistance, may we suggest you contact the Front Desk of your Resort.
Does this mean I can't receive an Amazon order?

Thanks in advance!

That's strange! I've never heard of a hotel that doesn't accept packages on behalf of its guests, it's usually just a matter of how much they charge you for the privilege. I realize I'm too late to help you now, but did you ever get things sorted out?

Why would you want an expensive piece of tech sent to WDW? I would not want to chance dealing with it getting lost or delayed while I was on vacation.
