    I am thinking of shipping a bunch of supplies we need for our trip(diapers, formula, etc) to our resort prior to our arrival to help save room in our suitcases. I have read of other people doing this here on the boards and was wondering if anyone can give me tips on doing so. What info do I need to put on the outside of the box? Where can I get the address for my resort(Caribbean Beach)? How many day before my arrival should I ship it to the resort? Etc. Any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    We're also shipping stuff down, via fedex. We're shipping the box today and arriving on Tuesday. Just put your name and reservation number, c/o Caribbean Beach Resort, 900 Cayman Way, Lake Buena Vista FL 32830.

    There's a sticky on the Resort Board.

    I have shipped stuff a few times, and I have never put my reservation number on there. No problem with delivery. I used FedEx, and there are a limited number of address lines on the form.

    I was going to us postal priority mail to ship it but I see a few of you are saying you used FedEx. Is that the preferred method of shipping? Or does it matter?

    I'm not sure it really matters, but I've always used Fed Ex to ship to WDW.
    If someone knows different, please weigh in.

    If you're not shipping personal items and only shipping items like diapers, formula, etc, I would actually suggest checking to see if GardenGrocers.com sells your brand. They deliver to WDW resorts all the time and take the hassle out of you doing it yourself.

    Thanks for the idea but they are a lot higher then what we can buy the stuff here.

    The Post Office takes mail to a general delivery location at Disney before it goes to your hotel, so you need to leave extra time when shipping. Don't ask me how much time. I have always used FedEx so that I know when my package is supposed to be delivered, and I can keep track of it online. (UPS also would do that, but FedEx has a more convenient location here.)
