is there a way to get packages delivered to bell services specifically?
we will be staying at Pop, and are ordering a few things from etsy.
don't want to be charged per package!! >.<
No. Shipments by the common carriers such as USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc are delivered via the front desk and incur a $6 per package receiving fee from WDW.

Question: If we bring USPS Flat Rate Shipping boxes with us to ship something back home, along with prepaid labels and some tape to put everything together, can we just drop the packages at the front desk on our checkout day for mailing? Nothing needs to be weighed since they are flat rate. We're staying at POR if that makes any difference.

    I just ordered some make up to my hotel (all star movies) but I’m an idiot and accidentally put our departure date instead of our arrival date on the order. We arrive 11th Nov and depart 26th, will I still be able to get my parcel when we arrive ?? Or will it be sent back since the arrival on the package is so far in advance?? Thanks

    Define "just", and with what company? First try contacting the company immediately to try to change the delivery date or destination.

    Just as in the past few hours! It was colourpop I ordered from. I contacted them right after on Facebook but no reply yet, I’ve also contacted Disney as well to ask what will happen to the parcel. I’m in the UK so can’t ring up colourpop and ask :(

    You told colourful you're arriving the 26th, but you're actually arriving this Friday? Should not be an issue. Ask the Front Desk when you arrive, then every day or two.

    thanks ! We arrive next Monday and basically on my order I put “GUEST ARRIVAL DATE 11/26/19” instead of the 11th November 🤦🏻‍♀️

    The arrival date just helps them find people, they'll look you up by name if they can't find you on the arrival date.

    I usually order a case of water and have it shipped to the hotel ahead of time from Amazon. This trip, with no dining plan I think we will need soda for my boyfriend as well, which would be a lot cheaper to have shipped from Walmart. Any experiences with having orders shipped to the hotel from Walmart?

    Wal-Mart will ship soda? Or deliver it? Different processes (and I ask because Target will not ship soda).

    I don't know if this will help anyone, but last Nov (2019) I bought a Ghost in a Jar, and they shipped it home for me from Memento Mori - I just filled out an address label and they took care of everything else. Shipped UPS and charge was $10. Arrived fine with no problems.

    TIP FOR SHIPPING ART, etc, various things, home...

    Don't buy from multiple areas and ship your items together thinking you'll save money if ART is involved. Someone put our art purchases in the same box as mugs (one was really, really heavy) and other sundries, and during shipping, they banged up the art. Signed art... from the Art Festival in February. Just terrible... damaged, might as well be crumpled up newspaper.

    The party who took our items to ship it from us was maybe new to shipping?

    Anyway, if you buy art from a stand during a festival, fill out the paperwork and get it shipped from that stand. It's a bit of a time consuming pain, but it beats carrying it around with you, getting the proper things all together, etc... just pay and get it done at the point of sale if it's valuable and/or heavy.

    Lesson learned the hard way :-(

    Are the posts #1 & #2 still completely accurate? I'm arriving the 29th and am starting my box for shipment. TIA

    Post two would definitely be accurate, since, while some resorts aren't open yet, none have moved. No renamed roads, no number changes, etc.

    First post was last updated almost four years ago. It's probably accurate, but please don't trust me on that!
