    We plan to order in some grocery's once we get to our resort (Art of Animation). Could you please give me any suggestions on stores that deliver, also any tips or tricks to this process would be appreciated. Thanks

    Hiya Sonya and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You and my favorite (and only!) sister share the same name, so I feel like we are Disney Family already! You have also picked one of my favorite Resort hotels. The Big Blue Pool is the largest hotel pool in all of Walt Disney World, and the ombré lobby is the perfect background for magical pictures.

    I also pre-plan groceries for vacation. About a week before I leave for a stay, I make a grocery list, load it up in my online cart, set a date for delivery, and boom! Food planned for the trip.

    Amazon Prime Now is a great way to get groceries delivered to your resort within a few hours. Through the app, you can order from Amazon directly, Whole Foods Market, or even nearby restaurants. If you have an iPhone, you can find the Prime Now app in the App Store. If you have an Android, Google Play is the App Store’s equivalent.

    Besides Prime Now, several other services will deliver directly to your Resort hotel. I have used both Garden Grocer and Prime Now multiple times, and each time has been a more than successful shop. A friend of mine virtually “shops” at Publix via  InstaCart, and swears by it for every Disney trip!

    When your groceries arrive at your Resort Hotel, Cast Members at Bell Services will gladly hold your groceries until you are ready to pick them up. Don’t worry about items that need to be refrigerated; they have a fridge available for perishables.

    Sonya, if you have any other questions, please come back!
