Shipping items to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel can be a great alternative to packing those items, lugging them to the airport, and paying airline fees!
Rather than packing food or other items in your suitcases, you can have packages shipped right to your Walt Disney World Resort. You can mail them from yourself, or have your purchases at Amazon or any other retailer delivered as well.
(For what to pack see our Packing Checklist)
Here are some ideas of items that you could ship:
- Drinks for Kids or Adults
- Cases of Water
- Air Mattresses
- Sleeping Bags
- Extra Luggage – to accommodate all those souvenirs going home
- Pool Toys
- Diapers and Wipes
- Sun Screen
- Spare Shoes
- Mini Christmas Tree
- Gifts and Decorations (Christmas,birthday, or other)
Disney charges a $5 delivery charge per package for this service. Combine the 5 dollar fee and free shipping from Amazon Prime Pantry and it is MUCH cheaper than airline extra or heavy luggage fees!

Make sure the your package has the mailing address of your Disney World Resort Hotel and clearly features the word Guest on the front and the date of your arrival.

You can obtain your Resort’s address from Disney’s website: Disneyworld.disney.go.com/resorts/ Find your resort and click on Resort Overview, then look on the right side of the Resort’s page for the address
You should have your package delivered within the week of your arrival. Too much further ahead can cause storage issues for the resorts, though they will not refuse your package.
I recommend paying for tracking and having your tracking numbers handy when asking for your package.
When you arrive, just ask for your package at the Front Desk. They may hand it to you then or have a Bell Hop bring it to the room later. (Tip your Bell Hop Please)
Disney will also ship packages home for you, for a handling fee plus postage. Just ask at the Front Desk.
Amazon Prime Pantry has a great selection of things you could use the have breakfast in your room to save a little cash!
