PostSubject: Shipping water to CSR   Fri Jun 29, 2012 1:13 pm

So, my husband thinks it would be a good idea to have two cases of bottled water shipped to the resort in advance of our arrival (No, we will not have a car this trip.)

I explained to him that since CSR is a convention resort, we would likely be charged $10 per case for the resort to receive it, thus negating any savings he envisions.

Anyone else ship water to the resort and avoided this charge? I have to assume that just about any major retailer (WalMart, Staples, Costco etc.) would be using UPS or Fedex Ground versus USPS for shipping.

Its $5.00 per box and when we did it through Staples a few years back, we were not charged at all. You just have to be in your room to accept the package because the CM's at the business center are not WDW employees and cannot enter rooms with someone being there. Otherwise, you have to go and get them yourselves.

ps - they sell cases of small water bottles at Panchitos for $16.00. I believe they are 8oz.

We had a delivery of water and other items from Garden Grocer - no problems at all and no unexpected charges.

Yeah, but we're not looking to order anything else from GG, so the delivery fee along with the fuel surcharge negates that idea.

I'm already planning on a charge for the box of GF food items I am shipping (GG and others just don't have the selection of items I need to keep on hand.) That will be $5 based on the weight of the box. Each case of water, if Walmart, Costco etc. chooses to ship UPS or Fedex will be another $20.

Well, we have been considering getting a car for a day to get to IoA. Maybe we will have to do it the second day we are at CSR and use the car to hit WalMart or the Hess station on the way back.

Worst case scenario, we'll pay $16 a case for water. Still beats paying $2.50 a bottle in the parks or drinking Orlando's Finest on Tap.
