We're traveling to Disney World late April. I have a 2 year old still in diapers. Is it possible to ship diapers/wipes to our hotel ahead of time (Wilderness Lodge) instead of having to bring them on the plane?

Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Christian!
I like the way you think! Guests are welcome to ship packages to hold for their arrival. I do this almost every time I stay at a Disney Resort. Its one less thing for me to have to remember to pack and risk sending my luggage into the excessive weight category when I fly down.
Here is how you should address the package:
Disney's Wilderness Lodge
901 Timberline Drive
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830
Please hold for Guest (your name here)
Guest Arriving on (arrival date here)
If I am checking in on a Saturday, I usually ship my package on Tuesday just to be sure it is enough time to arrive before I do. When you check in, mention that you should have a package - they usually have it waiting at Check-In for you. If not, they will deliver it to your room shortly.
I've shipped packages via UPS and with the U.S. Postal Service and never had any problems. I don't think you'll have any problems with any reliable carriers.
I often take labels with me ready to ship packages back home in the same box at the end of my trip. I usually have a "few" extra souvenEARs that won't fit in my suitcase.
Just make sure you have enough diapers and wipes with you to get you through your journey to the Wilderness Lodge (its fabulous by the way).
Please feel free to visit with all of your planning questions. We're hEAR to help!
Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
