    Hi Disney Moms! We will be staying on resort. How can i mail disney gifts I purchase during my stay to family and friends? Thank you

    Hi Lisa,

    There are a couple of ways to make this happen. 

    Nearly all merchandise sales locations at WDW have the ability to ship items directly from the store to any location out in the real world. To do this, simply tell your cashier as you're about to pay. They will hand you a simple information form to fill out (address, etc.) which only takes a minute to complete. Shipping charges here are based on the dollar value of the item shipped, regardless of weight. For example, shipping any item valued at less that $50 costs about $10. Rates go up from there, and different rates apply for international shipping. 

    If you want to send lots of items from different stores, your best option is to visit one of the business centers on property. These are located in the convention spaces at the Grand Floridian, Contemporary, Boardwalk, Yacht Club, and Coronado Springs resorts. The business centers all have shipping desks, much like you'd find at a Staples store at home. They can send anything via UPS or FedEx. Their rates are based on weight and distance, rather than the item's purchase price. You can also buy insurance for shipments here. Typically the business centers are open from at least 7:00am until 5:00pm. They also have boxes, tape, and other packing materials available for purchase. 

    I've done both of these options several times and have never had any problems.
