I was reading one of the "hints" sections of a website (Debs Guide I think) and someone suggested "shipping" a box of food (non-perishable obviously) down there ahead of time with a "hold until xx-xx-xxxx (date) for guest _________. The obvious advantage to this would be having some food there without having to pack it in you luggage. Since there's only two of us, and we're trying to "pack light", this would mean we could get away with a smaller suitcase each.

Here's the question. The date on the "tip" was a couple of years ago.... Has anyone ever tried this, and with the current events going on in the world today.... how receptive would WDW be to having a large box show up with a "hold until" sticker on it?

Thanks in advance.

I called my resort a couple of weeks ago to ask if I could ship a box for pick up on my arrival. The response was "no problem at all". They gave me the address of the resort and asked that I address in the address Attn: Resort Guest {your name here} arrival date mm/dd/yy. I dropped a box off at UPS this morning, I'm leaving in 9 days, so the box should beat me there by about 4 days. I'm assuming there will be no problems, but can't say for sure.

:Pinkbounc Instead of shipping down a box before you go and hope that it arrives when you do, pack a small suitcase of goodies to take with you. Thay will be there when you are and you have an empty suitcace for all the goodies you buy while there. Besides the fact that you can never seem to get everything to fit in the way you packed it to go.

I shipped a box of food down, and planned it so that it was scheduled to arrive 3 days before we did. That way, I was able to check the tracking number and confirm before I left home that it arrived and who signed for it. I figured if it didn't get there on the guaranteed day, they would have a couple of days to locate it. It arrived on schedule, and it had slipped my mind when I was checking in to the resort, but the CM said, "we have a package for you, I'll bring it out for you or we can have bell services deliver it." It worked for me!
