Great looking posters and bonus points for the chocolates!

Many parks offer this great service. One thing I was surprised at in June when I visited Disneyland and California Adventures was the fact that you had to take the package to the front of the park yourself. Why don't they offer pick-up from the store? I know Dollywood has offered "Package Pick-up" for many years now. When you purchase any item at a store you leave the package with them fill out two slips of paper and take one and claim your package at the front of the park on your way out right next to the turnstiles. Usually during the summer (when they close at 8) the last pick-up is around 5 to 6. Its a great benefit because you don't have to physically take your package all the way to the front of the park. You just purchase and the park goes around and pick up the packages three times each day from the stores and its waiting for you in a dry climate controlled building near the exit. Very convenient!

Package delivery to the hotel is one of the best perks of staying on property at Disney World. The only place I wouldn't opt for that would be at the campground because taking the bus to the package pick up building takes about an hour (or more) round trip depending on where you are in the campground.

I once forgot something that I had delivered to the front of the park at SeaWorld before and they mailed it to me for free.

It's also true at Universal Orlando that if you win one of those big huge stuffed animal prizes in the games, you can take it into any gift shop and have it hauled to the front of the park for you so you don't have to haul Scooby Doo around all day, buy him a meal, and get him his own seat on Dueling Dragons! I suspect other parks with big-prize games have a similar plan for dealing with those things. At UO, you can have your purchases sent to the front of the park at time of purchase, or at any gift shop. They will also ship those smaller prizes if you have a handful of them, along with any of the big stuffed animals or your purchased souvinirs.

In Disney World we always used package pickup. You buy the items, fill out the form and have it sent to the front of the park. As you leave you swing by and pick up your selections. The only limit was that you had to leave a 3 hour window for the packages to get to the front.

Are those posters available anywhere online? For DL or WDW?
