Tips for Grocery Delivery at Disney World

Sharing is caring!

Want to know how to get all of your favorite food items delivered to your hotel at Disney World? You are in the right place! This article will show you how to use services like Walmart Grocery Delivery, Instacart, and Amazon Prime Now to get what you need while on vacation.

 

Grocery delivery has really changed the way I vacation. I love the ease and convenience of being able to have snacks that I know my family will eat, delivered right to my resort!

 

Before grocery delivery became so accessible, we would always try to make a stop at a grocery store at the beginning of our trip. If that wasn’t an option, we would try and pack a suitcase full of snacks.

Now, it is so much more convenient to order snacks on an app on my phone and have them delivered to our Disney resort after our arrival! 

 

Why Order Grocery Delivery at Disney World?

 

With all of the amazing restaurants, snacks, and treats available at Disney Parks, why in the world would you want to order groceries as well?

Save Money

 

One big reason to order groceries to your Disney resort is to save money. I have a couple of picky eaters, as well as a teenager who is constantly eating, so ordering groceries is a big money saver.

 

It’s nice to have familiar snacks to give my kids throughout the day, as well as when we are taking a break in our room, that I know they will eat.

Sometimes they may have not eaten enough at dinner or have worked up an appetite while walking around the Parks, and it is super convenient to have a snack on hand.

 

Another way ordering groceries saves money is buying breakfast foods. I love choosing things like yogurt, fruit, pastries, and instant oatmeal that my kids and I can grab in our room before we head out for the day.

Not only does this help save money, because you won’t be spending inflated prices at a restaurant, but it can save a ton of valuable time as well!

 

Avoiding Over-Indulgence 

 

When visiting Disney World, it is so easy to over-indulge on all of the amazing food! I like to order some healthy options like fresh fruit, so that we are not eating pure sugar all day, every day.

Two or three big meals a day is often too much for my family, so ordering small items for breakfast and items for a small packed lunch to take into the parks, works out great for us.

Non-Food Items

 

A perk of ordering grocery delivery is that you can order non-food items as well. I usually order things like sunscreen, diapers, and wipes to be delivered so those items don’t take up space and weight in our luggage.

How Do You Order Groceries at Disney World

 

So, now that you know some of the benefits to ordering grocery delivery at Disney, let’s look at how to do it and where to order from!

Do You Have to be Present for Deliveries?

 

I have always been present when I’ve had groceries delivered at my hotel to avoid issues and mix-ups, but I know that many Disney hotels and surrounding off-site hotels will accept grocery deliveries for you and hold them at the bell desk. Some will even keep your items refrigerated.

Before relying on this though, I would call your hotel and double check with the front desk or bell desk, just to be sure.

Walmart Grocery Delivery

 

Ordering grocery delivery from Walmart, couldn’t be easier! This service is actually what I use at home, so it is most familiar to me. 

 

In fact, besides ordering groceries in Orlando, I have also used Walmart’s delivery service when visiting Disneyland, Great Wolf Lodge in Arizona, and Great Wolf Lodge in Texas.

I like using Walmart Grocery Delivery because the items offered are consistent across the country, and prices seem to be pretty consistent to what I pay at home.

How to Order Grocery Delivery from Walmart

 

 

  • Enter the address of your hotel and select a delivery time. Same-day delivery is often available.

  • If you forgot to add any items, you have until 1:45 am the night before your scheduled delivery to make changes to your order.

 

  • When it is time for delivery, you will get a text or a notification from the Walmart app letting you know about any substitutions or out of stock items.

 

  • You will also receive a text/notification letting you know what time to expect your delivery. I usually leave a note to let the driver know where to meet.

 

Amazon Prime Now

 

Another method to order groceries to be delivered to you at Disney World is to use Amazon Prime Now.

  • Once you have placed your order, you can track it to stay up to date on your grocery delivery arrival.
