    I've read that you can send a package of non-perishable goods to yourself at your resort to have during your visit. Is this correct and how long prior to your arrival should you send it? Will they hold it if it arrives, say a weeks prior to arrival?

    Hi Angela:

    You can mail yourself a package at your Resort containing items you might need during your stay.

    Most people tend to arrange for their packages to arrive a few days prior to their stay.  I would be concerned that a package that arrives many weeks prior to a stay may be misplaced.  To make sure your package doesn't arrive too long before your stay, or after your arrival, you should speak with your shipping service to find out when to mail the package so that it arrives a day or so before your arrival. On the package, write your name, note that you are a "guest," and include the date of your arrival. Although probably belts and suspenders, I suggest also writing a note on the package saying "hold for arrival."

    When you check in, ask for your package. I would bring confirmation numbers from your shipper just in case the package needs to be traced for some reason.

    Enjoy your vacation.
