Were planning a trip to WDW in 8-26/9-2 AKL. I know it will be hot. We have two DD 8-4. We don't plan on renting a car using ME. What is the best way to buy bottled water and snacks for the room and pool area?

Your cheapest bet is probably to buy a case or two of bottled water and whatever snacks you prefer ahead of time and mail all of it to your resort; the most convenient and second-cheapest option would be to buy it at the resort store (not Mara). Then again, as far as the water is concerned, you may find that tap water is not that bad - my family found it quite drinkable, saving me a significant amount of cash!

One of the reasons why we drive from Jersey is because of the small fortune we save in bringing our own cases of water and snacks. I see you're also from Jersey, so it's just something to think about.

You can have groceries delivered to your resort. Many Disers have used Wegoshop and garden grocer. You can find threads about each one by clicking on the links below.

I read on here that you can buy a case of water from staples and have it delivered straight to your resort. Also you can pack a box of food and have delivered it. They will hold the box at your hotel and you pick it up when you get there.

Address the package as follows:

Hold for guest: (write the full name under which you made the reservation)
Check in date: (insert date)
Hotel's name and address (This will be on your confirmation)

If you use FedEx ground as opposed to usps you put the same info as above but instead you address it to :

1701 West Buena Vista Drive
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830
Phone: 407-939-5000

I think I got this from one of the sites either mousesavers or allears, cant remember .
