To save room in your suitcase, or to have a surprise waiting for you or a member of your travel party when you arrive at your resort, you can ship items directly to your Disney World resort. To prevent delays, I suggest using UPS or FedEx. If you ship something via the United States Postal Service, it will go to a general receiving facility and can take days to reach your specific resort. If you ship with a private company, however, your package will go directly to the front-desk of your resort.

To ship an item, simply click here to get the address of the resort; make sure you put your name on the package. Here is an example:

Ideas of what you can ship:

1. Ship all of your toiletries and sunscreens since they can add weight to your suitcase or open during transport and ruin your clothing.

2. Ship a package of Disney toys or trinkets to give your children each day. This will cut down on spending at Disney, and can be used as rewards for good behavior.

3. Ship some non-perishable food items. I have sent boxes of cereal, granola bars, fruit snacks, cookies, crackers, and snack cakes. This helps to cut down spending on breakfast foods and snacks in the parks.

4. Celebrating a birthday or special occasion while on vacation? Ship some party supplies, or a gift. Shipping this helps keep the celebration a surprise and prevents delicate items from being squished in your suitcase.

5. Ship a case of diapers or other bulky baby supplies. Don’t use up space in your suitcase.

  1. I have shipped from the resort & from a local P.O. (a gun my son bought at Fort Wilderness that would not fit in the suitcase! even diagonally!). It was perfect & the reosrt will guarentee that it gets there safe & sound!

  2. I can’t speak for all resorts but I can say that at the all star resorts you should NOT ship anything you need within the first few days of your vacation. All packages, yes even FedEx and USP packages, shipped to the all stars go to a package distribution center where they are sorted and it can take as long as 3 days for the package to be delivered to your room. No packages are held at the front desk at the all star resorts. So if you insist on shipping things to any of the all star resorts don’t send things you need right away, put the name on the package exactly as it is on the reservation and even put your 12 digit disney resort reservation number on the package too! The all star resorts literally receive thousands of packages a day during peak season so as much info as you can give on the box so we know who to deliver it to the better!

  3. We have shipped things we have purchased from WDW it has worked quite well! Make sure to save all receipt copies! The resort concierge or hotel gift shop will help pack it and ship it home. It was exciting because it arrived at our home a couple days after we returned and it was like a Christmas gift. (of course you have to pay – but it is much more reasonable than the baggage fees you pay bringing another bag on the plane).

  4. I may try to ship some stuff down next time but I have a question about shipping stuff back from the resort. Has anyone done this. We don’t rent a car. Any ideas?
