Ask the Disney Moms – Groceries for Disney Room

Recently, we received this question from Sue:

We are staying in the cabins in fort wilderness and would like to stock our kitchen with drinks and snacks but don’t want to pack any because of baggage and weight limits on luggage. Are there any stores in the Orlando area that would deliver some groceries?

Sue, thanks so much for writing!  When traveling to Disney, I often know that I arrive back in my room when it is too late to go to the resort’s restaurants as they typically close at midnight and often I do not get back to my room until 1 AM or later.

So, what are you to do?  You can do as you mentioned and lug your snacks in your luggage or you can have groceries delivered!  The number one top place to use when getting groceries delivered while staying at ANY Orlando resort is Garden Grocer!  From the linked website, you can add items to your cart to which you want to have delivered to your resort.  Items can include everything from dairy products, baby and feminine products to wines and beers.  All items are reasonably priced.  If someone in your party needs items which are gluten-free, kosher, or organic, you can find many items available for them also at Garden Grocer.   No fear if you order cold items, as the store uses dry ice to package the foods so they will remain cold after delivery to your resort!

Steps to using Garden :

  1. Add items to your Garden Grocer cart.
  2. Fill in the information on your resort, travel dates, etc.
  3. Pay for your items.  Right now, there is a $40 minimum purchase required.  You will also pay for delivery costs.  For orders over $200, shipping is free!

That is all that there is to it!  You will have all of the items you need delivered direct to your room!  The service is really a great convenience and luxury!
