Yes. $5 per package.Asking this because the first post doesn't seem to be updated ... is POR charging handling fees for receiving packages? Can anyone confirm? First post says only hotels with convention centers are charging fees, but I think that's not the case anymore, right? Thank you!
Does this $5 per package fee apply to groceries from Prime Now or Safeway, etc...?Yes. $5 per package.
Per WDW website:
Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotels can receive mail throughout their stay. Occasionally, some Guests choose to ship items in advance of their vacation to help save luggage space.
If you intend to receive mail during your vacation, be sure the letter or package:
Please note that a $5 per package handling fee will apply to all packages that are received through the Front Desk or are delivered to your Disney Resort hotel room.
- Includes the mailing address of your Disney Resort Hotel
- Clearly features the word “Guest” on the front and the date of your arrival
It did not used to apply to grocery orders left with Bell Services.Does this $5 per package fee apply to groceries from Prime Now or Safeway, etc...?
So we did a Prime Pantry delivery at POR - not Prime Now, although I'm still not sure how I could have done this differently - and we were charged $5 twice because Amazon shipped the order in two different (huge) boxes.Initially, no. But yes, now it does.
Prime Pantry delivers to the "front desk" since it is delivered by common carrier (Fedex, UPS, USPS, etc), and therefore incurs a $5 per package fee to receive it. Unfortunately with Amazon, they will split orders to fulfill them, such as if one distribution facility doesn't have everything ordered, which can result in multiple $5 charges - usually a bigger problem with normal Amazon orders than with Prime Pantry orders, though.So we did a Prime Pantry delivery at POR - not Prime Now, although I'm still not sure how I could have done this differently - and we were charged $5 twice because Amazon shipped the order in two different (huge) boxes.
Also as a note: I was sent on a major runaround to even find the packages. I called the bellstand from our room and was on hold for ages. So I just walked up to the lobby, asked the luggage/bellstand people as I was pointed to them by the lobby concierge - and they couldn't find them. They told me to call from my room. So I went back and did that again. (This was an hour after checking in, so I was on an arrival-high and in a good mood, thankfully.) I called, they couldn't find them. Placed on hold, transferred, finally found them at the mail stop when I gave them the name of the person who had signed for them which I found in my account order confirmation.
I d ont think Prime Now does alcohol.THis may not be the right thread (I apologize if it is not), but is there any benefits to using Prime Now vs. Instacart? I'm just starting to do the research on these. Can alcohol be send with Prime Now?
