That might be a option. I was talking to DH about it this morning. The only issue I have is waiting for it to arrive. The ETA is usually 7-10 business days when shipping something via UPS ground. So we'll be back before it even gets here.
Yes. Don't ship something you need right away. On the other hand - it's a nice post-trip fun to get all your souvenirs. Probably less fun if its filled with dirty laundry though.

If you can work it into your vacation schedule I HIGHLY recommend it!
I stayed in Clearwater for a week one for work. I took DS who was a toddler at the time. I hired a nanny and he went to the pool every day. Then we want to the beach every evening. On Sat we drove to Sea World with my parents. It was a fantastic trip. That was before we started doing Disney. Now we're not to the stage yet where we'll give up Disney days for the beach.

OR

West Coast, Tampa, Clearwater, someone mentioned Sarasota?

Which beach is nicer? Gulf Coast or Atlantic?
Clearwater is routinely voted one if the best beaches in the world. it's near Tampa/St. Pete.

Do you already have Disney resort decorations built into your schedule? Those are free too and you won't want to miss them. I just wouldn't want to do that much driving, I guess.

Our last day in Florida will be the day we wanted to drive out to the beach. Originally we were going to get an early flight home since we were not going to do anymore parks. Now I am looking into late flights home. I want to drive out to the Gulf coast for the day then get a late flight out of Tampa @ 6:45. Just a quick trip out and sight see.

And to the PP, yes I do plan to go out and see the resort decorations especially if the parks are packed. We will be doing 2 days in each park so hopefully there will be plenty of time to do almost everything in the park and if need be get out of dodge before we get too frustrated in there.

No but I really want to !! They are gorgeous. Trouble is I'm one of those who whenever I have money for myself I end up spending it on my DD11 .... maybe I should buy them for her!

Why? Why do I have to wait 40 seconds between posts. If I can type that fast, it should post!!
