If you typically have packages delivered to your room, then you will definitely want to be aware of one of the recent changes for Walt Disney World Resort guests. Now if you have a package delivered to your room, there will be a $6 handling fee, per package. This does not include packages that arrive via Disney’s Magical Express. The $6 fee applies to gift baskets, grocery deliveries, Amazon, etc. if they are delivered directly to your room by bell services. If guests pick up their items at the front desk, then this fee will not be charged. The fee is not the gratuity for the bell services cast members and is not shared with them. If you want to tip them for their services, you’d have to do that in addition to the cost of the fee.
Guests should be aware that they will still be charged a $5 per package fee for items that are delivered to the Disney Resort and held for them. This is separate from the $6 bell services fee.
Here is the complete information from Disney’s website:
Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotels can receive mail throughout their stay. Occasionally, some Guests choose to ship items in advance of their vacation to help save luggage space.
If you intend to receive mail during your vacation, be sure the letter or package:
- Includes the mailing address of your Disney Resort Hotel
- Clearly features the word “Guest” on the front and the date of your arrival
Please note that a $6 per package handling fee will apply to all packages that are received through the Front Desk or are delivered to your Disney Resort hotel room.
Who out there has packages delivered to their room and would be impacted by this?
