Put a little update, reminder on the original post.
Long story, short. Communicate with the people on either side of your vacation dates to make sure everyone has the information they need before they leave for their vacation. (In some cases this could be a couple weeks before your actual vacation) I know sometimes those last couple weeks before vacation can get a little hectic, so feel free to exchange names as soon as you know the official person after you/before you.

Thanks everyone!

I got the bin today. Thank you DCtootall!!! You rock. Just an FYI that it is not behind the desk and the front desk people know nothing about it. It is in the storage area which the service reception person manages. This is the guy by the podium at the shuttle stop. He was really nice.

Also, when full, it can be a heavy bin and it's quite large, so make sure you have room in your vehicle for it.

No problem. I actually dropped it off with the luggage storage people at the front podium since with it's size/weight and the couple days till you checked in, I figured we'd have less problems. i'm glad to hear you were able to get it without any problems.

As for the weight, considering the items I left, i'm not surprised it was a bit on the heavy side. Obviously the overall weight can vary, but I wanted to make sure i got something large enough to be useful, but not large enough to be cumbersome.

Hmmm... Any problems with me taking the 11/5-11/12 dates? It's looking like my next trip will fall that week so I can see the Festival of the Masters.

Can there be a gap?

Hi all,

We are headed over on 4/24 and leaving 5/1. I would love to participate, but there is a day between the family before us checking out (4/23) and us checking in. And 6 days between us checking out and the next family checking in (5/9). I am not sure if this will create a problem or not.

Thanks

That's not a problem, the box will just sit in the storage area for a few days.
It doesn't have to be continuous for this to work. As long as the family in front of you has your name, and leaves the box with your name on it...it will be waiting for you when you arrive. Same goes for when you leave, just put the name of the person after you and they will pick it up when they arrive!

Hope that makes sense.

Here's another way to look at it.... Currently there is a 14day gap, so you are helping to shorten the gap.

The only possible problem with a gap MIGHT be one that exceeds 10 days. I think the claim ticket I got from the first drop off mentioned that after 10 days they could start to charge for the storage of the box. Honestly, i'm hoping that with as popular as this resort is becoming on the DIS, that we won't ever have to worry about a 10 day period without a single DIS'er staying there.

Double lucky.... I just realized that the dates, chosen because I wanted to see the Festival of the Masters, also happen to fall over the last week of the Food and Wine Festival.
