Ask a Disney Question: Grocery Delivery at Disney World.
This question comes from Josh, who asks: “Does Disney offer Grocery Delivery?”
Josh, thanks for reading Chip and Co and for your question. Disney doesn’t offer grocery delivery, but they frequently work with local grocery delivery services so your experience should go pretty smoothly. Two popular companies, Garden Grocer and We Go Shop, deliver to both Universal and Disney World area hotels.
I’ve used Garden Grocer several times and always had a good experience. There’s a $12 fee and a minimum order of $40, which you can easily spend just stocking a small room refrigerator on a short trip. In addition to food, they also sell toiletries and baby items such as formula, baby food, and diapers. The website is easy to use and in the last year they’ve really expanded their selection. Prices are generally competitive with Publix or Winn-Dixie, although slightly higher than Super Target or Walmart. The big exception seems to be milk; expect to pay around 50% more for a gallon of milk than you would in your local store.
We Go Shop is a service where you send them out to shop for you. The great thing about this is that they can go anywhere, even to warehouses like Sam’s and BJ’s, or to higher end stores like Whole Foods, so you’re not limited to their selection.
You can order from these services 48 hours in advance, but ideally, try to place your order as early as possible to get the best delivery time. I start my order a month or two in advance and then I just add as I go, that way I’ve locked in my time. If you can’t get your delivery time, they’ll leave your groceries at the resort and inform the cast member who takes your delivery what needs to be kept cool. You’ll pay and tip online ahead of time, so it’s not a problem.
