Babies Travel Light Delivery Service?

While my DH and I hope to have our 3 year old DD potty trained before the cruise, I want to know my options in case she is not. Has anyone used Babies Travel Light service for their cruise? I know their prices are high but I don't want to travel with diapers. Thoughts, feedbacks?? Thanks!

I haven't used the services but have been researching them...did a search for Babies Travel Lite on the forum and found that most found the service useful but pricey for shipping. Many of them recommended using Amazon and having the items shipped to your resort or directly to the port.

Here's the link to one of the threads: http://www.disboards.com/showthread....es+travel+lite

Babies Travel Lite

We used Babies Travel Lite for our first Disney cruise last April from Port Canaveral. It was so nice not taking up valuable suitcase space for pullups/wipes. We traveled with a few in our carry-on only. Amazon is defintely cheaper, but I didn't want to take the chance of getting on board and not having those very essential items.

A third option is to use Walmart's site to store, have your supplies sent to a Walmart store in Orlando or near Port Canaveral and pick them up. When you arrive at the port you can put a DCL tag on the box and have it delivered to your stateroom with the rest of your luggage. This option works if you are planning on renting a car or using a town car service.

Thanks all for your replies! Because we will be limited on time from getting from Fort Lauderdale to Miami via shuttle, I think I am going to order from BTL. I appreciate all the ideas and suggestions. Thank you!

We used BTL and I would recommend them. I would suggest pricing it out individually, we found it cheaper than the Disney bundles.

I placed my order this weekend. I am super cheap and only shop store sales with coupon. BTL prices are good; it's the shipping fee that gets you. For me it was the same cost as checking that extra suitcase round trip, minus the hassle. Plus, I ordered extra stuff I wouldn't have bothered packing, like snacks for excursions.

I'm a huge couponer as well & the price is already killing me! How much is the shipping fee??

I did a fake cart just to see (and had to enter all the info like date of sail, although I just made up a reservation number since I didn't have it on me). Just for the 6 day bundle it was $25. (I felt like the 6 day was plenty for what I would need for 7 days... I wouldn't actually get the bundle, but was just trying to be quick). So the bundle was $68 and the shipping was $25. Yikes!!

If I use them, I am planning on just getting a box of diapers and maybe some snack type stuff. But, we get in the day before so I am strongly considering diapers.com or Amazon to the hotel instead- scheduled to get there the day before we arrive, so even if it is late, it should be on time for us!

I did not get a bundle - it had too much stuff I will not need and did not include other things I do need. I went a la carte. The prices were competitive (!but you can't coupon -drat!). On the upside, they have a jumbo pack of swim diapers in all sizes - something I can never find in store and is cheaper than two small packs even with coupons.

Seems pricey to me; I'd pack my own stuff b/c that's just extra room you'll have in your bags when you head home.

We are traveling on the 4/27 Fantasy sailing and I was going to use BTL, but I found the prices and shipping to be pretty high. I decided to ship a box to the ship. I was able to fit the mix of diapers we need (regular, overnight and swim), wipes and our sons infant life jacket (needed for a private excursion we are doing). It will probably we about $20 to ship the box, but it is nice to know I have exactly what I need.


P.S. We are sailing concierge and I e-mailed them about shipping a package and they did not mention anything about the 12" size restriction posted in the FAQ of this page...my box isn't much larger than that, but just wanted to point that out.
