      I'm gonna just take everything with me. I know that my dad won't have that much and neither will my son..so that will be fine with all the extra bags and weight.

        My plan is if everything fits into one bag (OOT stuff only) then we will take with us. If not, I will deliver/mail the bags. Not all of guest are traveling out of the same area.

          I haven't thought about this too much. I know I won't be shipping anything down to Aruba since it will be too expensive. I am hoping everything will fit in one suitcase and I will probably put the OOT bags together before we leave. I know I won't want to be in our room doing OOT bags when I could be lying on a beach.

          As for when I am giving them to my guests, I have no idea. Maybe I can leave them at the guests rooms and/or give the bags to them at the welcome dinner.

            OOH! I totally didn't think about my son's extra bag :) he's only staying for 3 days and then heading back with the grandparents so we can use his extra bag!

              I agree with doing it before you get to the resort... I too would much rather be out of the room than filling bags! Do you think that TSA will open the bags if you're checking them in? I know they do if you have baggies in your carry on...

                think i've decided to skip these and just maybe have a welcome letter and one mexico-themed item in each room. cuts down on costs and things to do. if i had a bag of stuff to assemble, however, i think before you leave is best... that way you can just enjoy being at the resort as much as possible.

                  We brought everything with us in our suitcases and assembled everything when we arrived in Turks. They do not allow you to ship anything to them and their postal services are awful. Good Luck!

                    I don't know if they will. I know they get scanned, but I don't think they will open the bags. Maybe they will if you have something in the bags that scans weird or something. I will have to look into it, but I still think that no matter what I am assembling the bags at home first.
