I was going to add you to group #2 but your travel dates overlap by one day with someone who has already signed up. I'm sorry. If you would be willing to bring the box back to the storage area on 5/6 (the day before you leave) in the morning for the next family, I could probably add you. I just don't want to change up things for someone who has already signed up.

Let me know what you think.

We just got back tonight from our trip - and added some things to the bin. It is quite heavy, so make sure you have a way to transport it to your room.

DCTooTall Thanks for getting the box - and the supplies to get started. The rubbermaid storage bin was a great idea. Thank you for being willing to kick start the pay it forward in grand style

It was fun to arrive at the resort and have a package waiting for us! We added several items so I hope the next person can use some stuff.

Thank you to the OP. We have stayed at timeshare resorts many times, and always have stuff left over that we wish someone could use. WBC does have boxes in the lobby of each building where they collect unopened, nonperishables to donate to a local charity. It's nice tho. to be able to pass it along to someone on the disboards.

ok-stupid question-but HOW did you transport it to your room? do you just mean that you need a car to get it from the main building to your building? or will i need something with wheels to get it down the hall? thanks!

Hi Julie, we participated last year. I don't think it would be too heavy to carry since some guests don't have a car. Maybe some of the items have accumulated in the box and guests will begin emptying it soon.

julie1218 Right now, the box is pretty heavy. We had a rental car to transport it to our tower, and then used a luggage cart to haul it up to the room. Hopefully, some stuff will be used up, so it won't be so heavy when you arrive. If you need to, WBC can probably help transport it to your room. I did see staff helping transport guests luggage, etc to their rooms. I also saw people using luggage carts to transport stuff from tower to tower.

It was my pleasure. I figured the rubbermaid bin would make things easier for everybody, and be sturdy enough to withstand the job. Ultimately... It's something to give everyone one less thing to worry about during the trip so you can concentrate on just having fun!

It's a typical 30 some-odd gallon rubbermaid storage bin from Walmart, so that should give you an idea on it's size. As the the weight, It really depends on what ends up getting packed into it. Obviously, if its full of cereal and uncooked pasta it'll weigh less than if it has soda and canned goods.

That being said, the resort does have luggage carts in each building, so if it's too heavy for you to feel comfortable carrying it to your room, just throw it on a cart. Also, since it's a rubbermaid type storage bin, it'd also be pretty easy to have 2 people carry it if needed.


And if push comes to shove.... the lid is a pop-off lid, so there is no reason you couldn't go through it and remove some heavier items that might be easier to bring up on their own (say a 12-pack of soda or something?).
