Shipping items to Shades of Green 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 Shades of Green. You can mail them yourself, or have your purchases from 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

- Spare Shoes
- Mini Christmas Tree

There is no fee from Shades of Green to hold your package(s) and with free shipping (on orders over $35) 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 sponsor’s name, the confirmation number, and the date of arrival.
Shades of Green
Sponsor’s Name (Confirmation #, Arrival Date, or Room #)
1950 West Magnolia Palm Drive
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830-2789
You should have your package delivered within the week of your arrival. Too much further ahead can cause storage issues.
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). Small packages should be at the desk, while bigger ones will be stored.
Amazon Prime Pantry has a great selection of things you could use the have breakfast in your room to save a little cash!

Do you know if bell services at Shades of Green will refrigerate your groceries until you can get them?
Unfortunately they will not. Shades of Green advises “If there are perishable items in your order, you will be required to be available at the time of delivery.”
