Did you know that there are grocery services that you can order in advance from and have the groceries delivered to your resort? This service is great, especially for long trips. We’ve taken advantage of this 2 or 3 times and have had zero complaints! The service is affordable and very convenient.
We’ve had great success using “Garden Grocer“. The have an easy to navigate page where you can order essentials for your trip. We typically order a few cases of bottled water, yogurt, bagels, granola bars, energy drinks, and maybe a little beer and wine. These are all things that you can get at your resort food court, however the money that you can save is INCREDIBLE by using the grocery service. Additionally when you place your order 60, 30, or 15 days in advance Garden Grocer offers a discount*!
So how does it work?
- You begin by filling your cart.
- Go to check out
- Fill out your resort information (there is a drop down menu of Disney Resorts)
- Let them know what day and time you’re checking in
- Your groceries will be delivered to your resort on that day!
- Don’t worry about your refrigerated items, the resort will keep them in their fridge!
- When you get to your room call bell services and have them bring them to your room.
So what’s the catch? There is a slight delivery fee, and an optional tip for the delivery.
Here is my sample cart-
And the additional fees at check out
So yes, this may seem pricey for what you’re getting BUT… compared to prices on Disney property this is a steal. For example, 1 can of of Monster Energy drink is $2.89. At the Disney resorts is about $4.50. A bottle of water at Disney is $2.50 where you can get a case of 40 of them from garden grocers for $9.99 ($.25 per bottle!) By my best estimate for everything in my cart, it would cost approximately $230.00 to buy everything on Disney Property, so even if you tipped the delivery person $10.00 bringing the total to $81.29, you’re looking at a savings of $148.71!!!!
*As I mentioned above you can save money by placing your order in advance- here are the details- “Take advantage of our special savings by ordering in advance, (15 Days= 5%, 30 Days= 7%, 60 Days= 10%) off your subtotal. **Note: Discounts do not apply to add-ons of any kind.”
One last note about Garden Grocer, if you’re ordering alcohol. You will have to provide ID by scanning and faxing or emailing them your driver’s license.
I hope you found this helpful! Don’t forget to tip the person from bell services who deliver your groceries to your room! It’s a nice service, and a convenience for you!
