Q: Can I have groceries delivered to my Walt Disney World Resort?
A: Yes! Whether you want snacks to tide you over during your long days at the parks, decide to have breakfast in your resort room or want to cook a hearty meal in your villa or Fort Wilderness cabin, there are a some fantastic options for ordering groceries while at Walt Disney World. Here are three of our favorites
1.Garden Grocer – This has been the longstanding favorite when it comes to Disney grocery delivery. Guests visiting the website or downloading the app can choose over 5,000 different items for delivery. This option is perfect for those who like to plan ahead and can make their order well in advance as Garden Grocer will often offer a greater discount the further in advance you book with those booking 60 days out getting 10% off their order. The grocery prices are definitely more than what you would pay at your local Walmart and with a $40 minimum and a $14 delivery fee it is best for those who want to make one big order to see them through their stay. (The delivery fee is waived for guests spending over $200). Delivery slots are selected in advance and all deliveries will be dropped off with Bell Services who will then arrange to have the groceries sent to your room.
2.Amazon Prime Now – For those who want their groceries in a hurry, Amazon Prime Now is definitely the way to go. Guests ordering from the website or app are able to have groceries delivered to their Walt Disney World resort in under an hour for a $7.99 fee or for free if selecting the 2 hour delivery window. The beauty of ordering through Amazon is that you can get everything from groceries, health and beauty, electronics and can even order Amazon devices like Kindles. The groceries on offer here are also much more competitively priced to what you would get at a Walmart. The only real downside to this option is that guests must be Amazon Prime members in good standing However, for those that are already members then it’s definitely a service worth using. I use it nearly every time I visit Walt Disney World and have always been thrilled with the ease of the service and the eclectic mix of items available.
WeGoShop- This service is much more of a personal shopper than a standard grocery delivery service. Visitors to the website can choose what store they would like the service to use with options such a Publix, Sam’s, Trader Joe’s, Walmart, Whole Foods, Winn Dixie etc. and the shopper will visit the shops and retrieve the items. This service is perfect for those with very specific tastes in terms of where they would like their groceries from but because it is a bespoke service it does come at a cost. The service will charge a shopping fee which starts at $19.00 for a $50 order as well as a $3.00 fuel surcharge, a $10 charge for same day delivery and a $10 charge if they need to bag the groceries for you. There is also an automatic 10% delivery fee tacked onto all orders that are left with Bell Services. If you want to pay for the added luxury of having someone handpick your local groceries then this is definitely the service for you. However, it definitely pays to be aware of the added extras that come with the service.
Guests bringing their own vehicles should also note that there is a variety of different grocery stores located in the local area. So if you don’t mind driving you can save on those delivery fees.
I also recommend for those flying to Disney to pack park worthy snacks like trail mix, protein bars, small boxes of cereal etc in your checked luggage. This will save you having to pay Orlando prices for essentials that you can easily pick up at your discounted grocery store.
Visitors at Walt Disney World on a lengthy stay should also note that it is possible to make your own grocery box from home and have it shipped directly to your resort. Then when you arrive for check-in you will have all of your personally packed goodies waiting for you.
