Hey all! Just received an email from Staples Rewards program that starting today you get free shipping with no minimum purchase if you are in their rewards program. (Not for a period of time -- always not s/h cost.) Great if you want to ship water, snacks, soda, etc... to your resort.
I did this with water on the last trip! worked out great
Great idea! Is it easy to have something shipped to your room?
I did this over the summer. I had water shipped to PORS and then on another trip to POP. The only problem I had was that we arrived around 8 pm at POP and we weren’t able to get it until the next morning. It is a great way to get water. Be careful with conference hotels though as I think there is a charge for packages shipped to those resorts.
We are staying at AoA in 3 weeks. I guess i will call them to see if they allow packages. Does anyone kmow how to get beer delivered too?!
I don’t think AoA is a conference hotel so you should be fine. I’m not sure about beer. Maybe use a grocery service. If you do that though, maybe just get your water from there too as I think they probably have a minimum order amount. I haven’t done this before but I think Garden Grocer is a popular place with many people.
This article about shipping items has the address for AoA (and the other resorts - I saved the link to keep that info handy). http://dwdads.com/2013/12/19/dw-dads-best-of-2013-packing-for-disney-i-shipped-my-pants/
Think @DOLEWHIPDAD stayed at AoA and wrote this, so he can probably confirm that shipping there should not be a problem.
You are correct…shipping to AoA was great
