The new Shop Disney Parks mobile application (which allows Guests to find, buy, and also ship select merchandise products offered around the Walt Disney World Resort) has been improved thanks to the introduction of a great, new feature. In fact, it was recently announced that Resort Hotel Delivery (available only at Disney hotels) and Park Gate Pick-Up (delivery to the front of the park) are now available for Guests visiting the Walt Disney World Resort.
Resort Hotel Delivery
Guests with a claimed resort reservation on their My Disney Experience profile can select Resort Hotel Delivery to have their purchases delivered to their hotel’s package pickup location. Orders made prior to 3:00 p.m. are ready for pick-up at the Guest’s resort the following day after 12:00 p.m.
Park Gate Pick-Up
Guests physically in one of the four theme parks can select Park Gate Pick-Up to have their purchases delivered to the in-park package pickup location. Orders can be placed up to three hours prior to park closing, and will be ready for retrieval at Park Package Pick-Up locations three hours after purchase.
To celebrate Shop Disney Parks, free shipping will be offered now through November 22 on all Shop Disney Parks standard ground Home Delivery purchases. This promotion applies only to standard ground delivery on orders sent to a single shipping address (not P.O. Boxes) and does not include shipments to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands or other U.S. territories.
