    Simon wanted to buy a new light weight all singing all dancing tripod for this trip, found one with a company in New York at a fantastic price even with shipping to Orlando.

    Our thinking was to have it delivered to the hotel so it's there when we check in next Friday.

    I emailed the Rosen to make sure this was ok and what info I'd need to put on the package. Get an email back today and they charge up to $25 per item, even if its received when we're already checked in.

    Our owners locker box is supposed to be delivered there for us too.

    It looks like it will cost us $50 for both - how extortionate is that.

    I'm not a happy bunny and will have to rethink now. Am wondering if I can pick up my owners locker box instead :(

    Sorry just wanting to rant and get it off my chest.

    Wow, that's not very good, whenever we've stayed anywhere and had something delivered to a hotel or club house there hasn't been a charge.

    I can't help with the owners locker, but I'd give them a call or email them, they might have somewhere you could have the tripod delivered

    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    Yeah I had something delivered to the contemporary in dec and I asked them if it was ok and what to write on it no mention of a fee. Then when I collected they charged I think $5 per parcel. Far cry from 25, which is extortionate, but still given the hotel was several hundred a night...

    yeah :/ I've had stuff delivered to Disney hotels before and it was free (including swan and dolphin). I think the problem with the contemporary is that they have the stupid business centre charging STUPID amounts for internet access etc and that's where the parcel was stored :/

    Those places are just EVIL!

    The contemporary one was charging an AMAZING amount per minute for internet and literally everything you do in there costs money.

    Can I ask what photography place you used though? most of the ones I know in the US will only ship to where the credit card is registered which makes them no good for UKers :( it'd be good to know of a place that will ship to a hotel

    Keith, the company is Adorama. They are based in New York. We did email them to make sure they would deliver to the hotel and that we'd be paying in dollars through our sun trust account and all seemed fine. They are charging $12 for a 3 day shipping :)

    oo yes I know Adorama ! very good company but they usually refuse the uk CC, it must be the US bank account that they liked. Useful to know!!
