    Each resort has mail pick up for sending letters and cards. They can also assist with parcels. I'm not aware of a UPS or FedEx office on property though. Check with the front desk at your resort for assisitance.

    There is a post office near the Goodings Grocery just off property near DD.

    I haven't used one, but I've heard that there are shipping centers at resorts that have convention facilities. (CSR & CR)

    Yes, they have UPS delivery, so they also have UPS pickup. I ordered a dress from Spiegel once when the weather on my trip became VERY warm, and I had only cold weather clothes--I really did want that dress, anyway--so I called,and described it to them, and they 2nd Day air'ed it to me. I picked it up at the front desk. I was told to call housekeeping for boxes if I decided to return anything, and the UPS charge would be added to my bill. Well, I kept the dress, but we had purchased so many souveniers;) that we sent an entire box home that must have weighed 30 lbs. Housekeeping brought me everything I needed to box it all up--and it arrived about a week after I got home.:p

    There is a post office right near hotel Blvd. Turn left at Crossroads, it is on the right side. There is a large sign "post office" on the highway.

    On my trip a couple of weeks ago, 2 friends I was with wanted to ship stuff back home, they bought some large items. We found a Mailbox Etc that was willing to open just for us on Sunday morning before we left. It was located next to Publix behind Premium Outlets. It is pricey, they charged $20 for the packing materials (box, bubble wrap).

    Wonder if any of that pricy stuff was for opening on Sunday?
    Disney's shipping is pretty hefty also, but, at least you escape the sales tax. :)

    I have to say Mailboxes etc is a HUGE ripoff. I understand they have to make money over the usual usps postage, but their prices are exhorbitant. I would pack it myself, use popcorn if you have to, and save alot. IF you're not in a hurry, use parcel post in the usps, its pretty cheap compared to mailboxes. :)
