    Anyone know how long the Costco water takes to arrive at the resorts? I noticed the $6.99 deal is back up.

    ETA: nevermind I found it. looks like results vary from 2-5 days.

    I am thinking of shipping a compact refrigerator from walmart.com, to ASMo, but i do not know who they use to ship items. Does anyone know? This info is not given on the website, at least not that I could find :)

    Just wondering if there's a length of time before you arrive that you can have packages shipped? Would 10-15 days before you arrive be too long do you think?

    We're coming from Australia and would like to have some things shipped within the US to our resort but I'm think it's going to get there at least 10 days before we arrive.

    How long are you staying? It seems like you could probably rent one cheaper?

    I have tried "requesting" one several times and it never seems to stay on my reservation (no guarantee), it was for medical reasosn before and I stressed way to much. Now I buy one at walmart ($58-68) I have picked them up in the past w/a rental, but thought I would try this way. We stay for 18 days, It is far cheaper to buy, especially since I usually sell it to someone else before I leave for 1/2 of what I pay and that cuts the price to about $35 :) The fridge from walmart is also larger.
    thanks for the suggestion though :goodvibes

    Ooooh. 18 days! How awesome! Hope you guys have a great time!!!!! I guess it would be cheaper than renting a fridge!

    Hope you guys have a fun vacation!

    I'll be arriving in two wks staying in All Star Sports - I'm coming over from the UK and would like to get some pins for trading sent directly to my resort - would that be ok? I'm taking it from this thread if they're sent with a courrier and they're posted to the resort with my confirmation no that they'll be ok and waiting when I arrive I just have to collect it from front desk? Also do I have to tip anyone for collection/holding the package for me?

    Both GardenGrocer & WeGoShop have been more than happy to include liquor, beer or wine along with my grocerys. (Garden Grocer does not list it amoung it's virtual asiles, but phone or add it the notes and they will gladly add it.
    Both places requested that I email / fax them a copy of my ID beforehand for proof of age incase I was not inroom for delivery.

    just sent our stuff down today!

    word of caution!
    if you're shipping on a saturday please realize it won't go out until monday! so i didn't think about that - and our bags will arrive only 2 days prior to us...i was hoping they would get there sooner!

    Is shipping really cheaper than paying for a bag on an airplane?? I never thought of that! But then, Im coming from Oregon so that probably changes things... :headache:

    I'm hoping from your avatar that you may be from the Northeast? If that's true, how many days did it take your package to arrive? Trying to figure out when I need to drop my package off at UPS.

    Does anyone know where the nearest UPS building to WDW is? We will have a rental car so can drive. Thanks!

    If you go to the UPS or FEDEX websites, they can give you a quote on price and length of time.

    Thank you for sharing that peice of information with me. I now have an idea of when I need to send my package to Disney so it gets there either the day before us or the day we arrive.
