Ordering from the Disney Store

Hi,
I know the answer to my question is on one of the threads, I just can not find it...

How many days/weeks out do you place you Disney Store order for it to be delivered to the Resorts?

Thanks for your help

you can order whenever you like, they will hold the parcels indefinatly (within reason) so start shopping
I ordered 6 weeks out for aulani in hawaii, parcels sat there for 3 weeks until i got there, just make sure you put arrival day in info
ie: name guest month/date/year (put month first remember its the usa)
hope this helps

When offered, you can usually combine a dollars-off or percent-off coupon with a free shipping or reduced shipping coupon at DisneyStore.com.

Buy any Disney Parks Dooney and Bourke item and get a Sketch Credit Card Holder with Keyring for $15 with Promo Code: Dooney. Limited-time offer, while supplies last. Purchase with Purchase pricing only applies if you purchase any Dooney & Bourke item. The $15 Sketch Credit Card Holder with Keyring will automatically be applied to the order (if holder does not appear in cart after adding code, offer is exhausted).

FREE shipping with any order of $75 or more at DisneyStore.com. Use code SHIPTODAY. Ongoing offer.

make sure you check the sale pages, and if you order something and it is no longer in stock, they will send you a 25 % off code for your next order.....so have a stand by list just in case..I saved $100 doing that....

wish i was going now, they have heaps of mexican cruise stuff half price...grrrrrrrrr
oh and I love the vinyalmation pins..so damn cute.

Thanks for this little tip. Is buying from the Disney store cheaper than buying in the parks?

Oh God yes......and their sales are wonderful. I buy the grandkids stuff there, for a fraction of the price. It even gives the outlet stores a run for their money. Look at the sales pages..I picked up hawaiian buz, woody and jessie for $14 each..they are worth $60 here at home....the GKids loved them.

The 2 for $20 type sales are great too......

Tink thongs for $6...my fav purchase so far so comfy.

Would love to know which ebay sellers you may recommend. And yes the curse of the ipad, my fingers never hit the right keys.
