    Hi everyone--
    We want to get a gift for our CM's (kids club, Flounders, servers, mousekeeper, etc).

    Does anyone know how to send packages ahead and how long before the cruise they need to be there.

    When we get to the port, do we ask for them, or do they send them to the stateroom?

    I see where people have sent stuff ahead before, just don't know how.

    I got this from the DCL Q&A at the very top of the forum...

    Sending packages ahead of time to the ship:
    PLEASE follow these instructions carefully!!!!!!

    -ONE box per stateroom, no exceptions.

    -The package must have the guest full name, ship, sailing date, stateroom number or GTY if you have not been assigned a stateroom number.

    -The package also must have a packing slip attached to the outside of the box that details the contents of the package. For prescriptions, a copy of the prescription is sufficient. Your list may or may not be read but it must have one. Write packing slip on the outside of the envelope.

    -NO FOODS/DRINKS OF ANY KIND, LIQUOR OF ANY KIND, FIREARMS, ETC.. This may cause the dogs to hit on your box and that would be a bad thing.

    - The required size of the cartons you are shipping down have to be about the size of a record storage box 12 inches on a side and should not weigh more than 20 lbs. (This has been asked personally by Dave Adams who is the owner)

    Address your package(s) to:

    IDS c/o (Ship Name) / Ground Services
    Guest Name / Stateroom # (GTY, if you don't know what it is when you send the package)
    9001 Marlin Street
    Cape Canaveral, FL 32920

    In the bottom left corner of the top of the package put the following information:ATTN: HOUSEKEEPING

    Packages must arrive by 5:00 PM on Friday for Saturday and Sunday sailings.

    Packages must arrive by 5:00 PM on Wednesday for Thursday sailings.

    If your box is hit on by the screening dog or chosen for additional screening they will open the list and the box and look through it. They will close it back up and provided nothing bad is in it then it will be in your room as usual later after boarding.

    These boxes will be coming on the ship with the crew mail among other things so they may be in the staterooms later then they were before as they are low priority in the scheme of things for Disney.
