The stores will ship it for you or you can go to the concierge desk of your resort and they will assist you as well.

We always ship packages home from the front desk of our resort. The most we have paid is $22-$25 for 2 large boxes and a poster tube via UPS. We pack everything up and take it to the front desk the night before we leave and everything arrives home 2-3 days after we do .

If you ship souvenirs home at the time you purchase them at the store or if you take your merchandise and receipts to the gift shop at your resort you will be charged a shipping fee based on the total value of the merchandise. Here's a shipping fee chart. It's dated 2009, but it looks pretty close to what we paid earlier this year:

You can pack everything yourself and take it to the Business Center at any resort that has a convention center. They ship UPS or FedEx and your cost is based on their shipping rates.

You can also pack things yourself and take it to the concierge or gift shop at your resort.

We have shipped direct from the shop at WDW. Not sure what the advantage is to getting your merch from the shop to the resort, and then shipped home

Sometimes people don't have room in their luggage and need to ship things home. Or, they combine a bunch of small purchases into one large shipping order and it won't cost as much to ship.

For us, it's a lot cheaper to ship everything all at once at the end of our trip. I've inquired about shipping from a store and 1 small-medium size item would cost around $10 to ship, as opposed to $20-$25 for 2-3 large boxes. With as much as I ship home, I would go broke shipping from every store I purchased from.

Where do you get boxes and packing supplies for shipping items home? Can you purchase those at the resorts?

DH and I are flying alone for the first time in January. I know we'll be buying souvenirs for the kids, but we're trying to get buy with just carry-ons, so this shipping idea might work out well for us! Thanks for the info

Some people have been able to get boxes at the gift shop in their resort. You can also purchase boxes at the Business Center in resorts that have a convention center. I've seen packing tape for sale in the gift shops and at the Business Center. Or you could bring a roll of packing tape with you in your luggage.

This is what we always do. If you do try to get boxes from the gift shop and don't ship until right before you go home, I'd go early in your trip to try and get boxes as sometimes they do run low and there is a chance they won't have any if you wait until right before you want to ship. We pack everything up and then take it to the front desk where the CMs have always been accommodating to tape the boxes for us.
