How to get Groceries Delivered to your Disney Resort

How to get Groceries Delivered to your Disney Resort

One of the best ways to save money on your Disney World vacation is to make your own meals when you are there. This is why we are giving you the best tips on how to get groceries delivered to your Disney Resort. Even if it’s as simple as having your breakfast in the hotel room versus picking something up in the food court of your resort. Over the course of a 5 day trip for a family of four that could be a savings of over $300!

I love to pack my own snacks on trips to Disney, snack prices are typically between $5 and $7 dollars per snack. While you can find a few snacks cheaper, plan on spending at least $5 per snack and you will be limited to what is available in the park, which could pose a problem for young ones or picky eaters. Not just to help save money but when I was dealing with food allergies it was a lifesaver. I knew whatever food I brought was safe and I didn’t have to worry about cross-contamination. Disney is really great about serving those with food allergies but you can never be too safe.

If you are shipping the groceries to your resort, we recommend you place your order for groceries about a week before your trip. Of course, this always depends on the shipping speed and origin of shipment. Note, Disney has started charging a $5.00 handling fee for each UPS or FedEx package delivered to the Front Desk or hotel room.

Disney Resort 

If you are staying at a Disney World hotel they do have a small sampling of groceries in their store or in the quick service food area. You will find there is an even bigger selection if you are staying at a resort that also has Disney Vacation Club rooms or area. This is because DVC rooms have a kitchenette or full kitchen inside. I have found Fort Wilderness has the biggest set of options probably just to cater to their guests who mostly have their own kitchens with them.

The downside with this is just like the rest of the food at Disney World there is a significant markup on items. It is also a very limited selection of food so you won’t be able to be picky about brands or sizing. It’s great in a pinch but with the cost and selection, it’s just not practical to do all your shopping here. 

Prime Now

Why wait when you can get your groceries now?! If you are going with Prime Now the delivery cost is free for 2 hour delivery on orders over $35 ($4.99 if below $35), $9.99 for 1-hour delivery. The advantage of going this route is in addition to groceries, you’ll find many other items that you might need on vacation. This includes items such as clothing, shoes, charger, sunscreen, etc. People say the selection is slim but I really have been impressed with how this service has grown over the years. 

You can order here at primenow.amazon.com.

Prime Pantry Prime Now

This one is my favorite, we use it all the time just for our regular household supply stock up. But Prime Pantry isn’t just for at home use this also works great for trips too. Simply go to the Amazon website pick out your groceries and have it shipped to the hotel. For Prime Pantry if you spend $50 you can get free shipping, otherwise, it’s a $5.99 shipping fee.

Garden Grocer

Garden Grocer allows you to order your groceries online and have them delivered to your resort. These guys are great and really know their stuff, they have been in business for over 10 years now! They even have an app you can download on the App store!

When you are ready to order head over to browse through over 5,000 products here. When you find what you want it is as easy as adding the item to your cart. Shop by brand, category, or use the search toolbar to find the products you want! Look to get some alcohol sent to your resort? Garden Grocer can handle that too! 

So let’s get down to the details. Your total cost will be the price of the food plus $14 delivery fee. If your order is over $200 the delivery fee is waived! Tipping is optional, but I would recommend just like any other delivery service. On the note of deliveries Yacht Club, Beach Club Resort/Villas, Boardwalk Inn/Villas, and Campground only accept deliveries after 4 pm.

A huge plus is these guys have no minimum order. If you want to save some extra cash to make up for that delivery fee be sure to order ahead of time for discounts. You will get a 5% discount for 15 days ahead. 30 days ahead will save you 7%. And finally 60 days ahead of time will get you 10% off. 

If you are staying at a Disney resort, Garden Grocer delivers directly to their bell service area, so you are not required to be present for delivery. And yes, Disney’s bell services has refrigeration so your perishable items will stay nice and fresh. Having this delivery option is a huge relief if your plane gets delayed or if you get stuck in some of that fun central Florida traffic. They have notifications available via email and text so you can be notified as soon as they arrive at your resort.

Instacart

You may be familiar with this just from using it at your own home grocery store. This company sends out personal shoppers to pick up and deliver items from local grocery stores like Publix, Whole Foods, Costco, and ABC Fine Wine and Spirits. Some cons with this service are you don’t find the cost for delivery until checkout. Plus if you happen on a busy time they can add-on a surcharge in addition to the delivery charges.

If you have never used Instacart before they have a special promo offer of getting your first delivery for free. You can check it all out using my referral link here.

Speedway Gas Station

There are three different gas station locations at Disney World and since Speedway is the latest gas partner they are all Speedway stations. There is one just outside the parking lot exit of Magic Kingdom, a second by Hollywood Studios across from the Boardwalk Inn and the third is directly across from Disney Springs. 

Like many other gas station convenience stores, the inside is filled with your standard mini market items. It is also on the plus side cheaper than Disney food pricing. However, pricing is still slightly more expensive than you would get by going to a traditional grocery store in the area. One thing to note is that these gas stations abide by the rule of no gum! 

Uber

Call up an Uber and head over to a Florida local favorite, Publix. They pretty much have everything you could possibly want and my the food is delicious. If you haven’t had a Publix sub yet, you just haven’t experienced Florida! 

Wal-Mart Grocery Delivery

Wal-Mart recently added a nice big brand new store right by the gates of Disney off of 192. Of course, Wal-Mart is pretty universal and you know you are getting a better value on food items compared to shopping at Publix. The fee for delivery ranges from $7.95 – $11.95 it just depends on your delivery window.  Keep in mind this service has a minimum order amount of $30. A few more cons are no alcohol delivery and we find it can take longer to receive your order than services like Amazon Prime Now.

Want to skip delivery fees and have a car? Try out Wal-Mart’s online grocery ordering. You once again pick out your items online and then head to Wal-Mart to pick up your items. Best of all no need to even get out of your car because the groceries are brought to you. Just make sure you head to the designated parking spaces.

Checked Luggage

You can always box up some groceries from your local grocery store and check it as luggage. This is the best solution if you are flying on an airline that doesn’t charge extra for checked luggage like our favorite, Southwest. Also, if you are a rewards member or have a credit card for other airlines they often have free checked luggage as a perk. 

Ship It

This one is pretty self-explanatory. You can just shop at your favorite local grocery store and then mail it from your local post office. I recommend using a USPS Flat rate box that way you don’t have to get all caught up in how much stuff weighs and how it will affect your shipping costs. A medium flat rate box can be shipped for $13.95.

We have a group of 12 of us staying in two rooms at The Beach Club Villas. What would you recommend as the the best option for us for grocery delivery? Also, do you know how much the Disney resorts charge to accept the packages? Someone mentioned $5 per package and discouraged going with Amazon as they tend to send a different item in each box. Do you have any information on that? Thank you for your advice!

The resort charges more than $5 delivery fee. I had to pay a little over $10 at Coronado Springs. They said it's by weight, not by each shipment. So be advised you may have to pay more, depending on what you order.
