Grocery delivery has revolutionized the way I vacation! When you are on a Disneyland trip, it can be difficult to find healthy snacks that your family will eat and enjoy.
Now, instead of wasting time trying to find a grocery store near Disneyland or pack snacks for my family to enjoy at the parks, all it takes is one click and everything will be there at our resort.
I love how easy this service makes traveling with kids. It’s easy to open an app on my phone and quickly order breakfast items, snacks, and treats that I know my kids will eat–and for a whole lot less money than what I would spend on treats at Disneyland!

Why Order Grocery Delivery at Disneyland?
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?
The best thing about ordering groceries to your Disneyland area hotel is saving money. I have picky eaters and teenagers, so having groceries delivered to our resort is a lifesaver!
Ordering groceries gives me peace of mind knowing that I’ll have snacks available at any time throughout the day – especially if one or two kids get tired halfway through our Disneyland day (which does happen).
Plus having familiar food in my backpack “just-in case” moments. like waiting in a long line, makes everyone happier: myself included!!
It’s also nice not to have to worry about having to quickly find food nearby if someone in your family becomes “hangry”.
Kid-friendly breakfasts are one way to save money on food when at Disneyland. I love choosing things like yogurt, fruit, pastries and instant oatmeal that we can grab in the room before we head out for the day!
When I visit Disneyland, one thing that always seems to be at a minimum is healthy food. When you’re at the parks all day, It’s easy to go too far in terms of over-indulging on sugar from all the amazing treats they have available!
I try ordering some fresh fruit so we don’t end up getting completely reliant upon sugary items as our sole source nutritional intake during the vacation – even though it may seem tempting sometimes 😉
My family loves to eat at the parks, but we often find ourselves feeling full after only one or two meals. To avoid this problem, I pack a small lunch for everyone and have breakfast in our room before heading out for the day.
Keep reading for a list of snacks and food items that I recommend having delivered.
Besides food, you can also order other items too! I usually get sunscreen, diapers, wipes, and some toiletries delivered so we don’t carry heavy weight in our luggage and can avoid luggage fees at the airport.
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 hotels and 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.
How Do You Order Groceries at Disneyland
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!
Grocery Delivery Services near Disneyland
Here is a list of grocery delivery services that will deliver to hotels near the Disneyland Resort.
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.
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 Much Does Walmart Delivery Cost?
Grocery deliveries are free to your Disney resort from Walmart, if you are a member of their Walmart+ program and your order is at least $35.
The price for this service is $12.95 per month or $98 a year. But, you can sign up for a free 15-day trial and have your order delivered for free.
Just remember to cancel your membership if you are not planning to use it, so you are not charged.
