Shipping items to resort

I am staying at AOA November 8-13 and I wanted to ship some items (snacks) before I get there and I also wanted to order some things online to be delivered to the resort. Has anyone done this before? What is the best method? I was planning on using USPS. Will the resort hold these packages for me until I arrive? Where would I locate the address for shipping items to the resort?

You might want to check out the "Shipping to your Resort" sticky at the top of the page.

There is a sticky right at the top of the page regarding shipping to your resort.

Do not use USPS; they don't recognize the addresses and sometimes the packages go to a warehouse before being shipped to the resort. Best to use the methods as shown in the sticky above.

My cell phone died the night before leaving for Disney World last month, so Verizon sent a replacement to the resort for me. So not exactly the same as shipping ahead, but I can give you some advice.

First of all, I would not use the postal service. I know that because when I went to the front desk to ask if my package arrived the cast member jokingly said something about how it was not there yet and she hopes it wasn't sent through the postal service (it was shipped by Fedex). I asked why and she said "because you won't get it". She explained how it works but I can't remember. Basically she said use Fedex or UPS. Thankfully when we got back to the room the package was sitting on the bed.

As for the address. Double check the address, but here's how I had Verizon send it.

Disney Art of Animation Resort
1850 Century Drive
Lake Buena Vista, Orlando, FL 32830
Hold for guest (insert name) checking in on (insert check-in date)

Hope this helps!
