Groceries Delivered to Your Hotel Room

Hi, I'm going to be staying at the Wilderness Lodge Villas in December. I would like to stock up on a few groceries since we will have a kitchen. I'm not really planning on cooking but I would like things like milk, bread, cereal, pasta, snacks etc. I was thinking of ordering from a local grocery delivery service but I was wondering if there is any way to have groceries stocked before we get there? Or if we are out at the park? It might be too much to ask for but I really don't want to have to sit around in my room waiting for a grocery delivery when I could be out enjoying precious time at the parks

You don't have to wait around for the delivery. If your order gets delivered prior to your arrival, Bell Services will hold them until you arrive. Then Bell Services will deliver them to your room once you check in. If your order has not arrived when you check in, again Bell Services will hold your order until you return from the parks.

So then it doesn't matter what service I order groceries from?

Nope, as long as they deliver to Disney resorts.

Thanks! Do you have much experience with grocery delivery? Do you have a preferred service to go with? I'm from Canada so I don't have much experience with the grocery delivery places in the US at all, nevermind in the Orlando area

I personally have not used one. But many people on the DIS have used either wegoshop.com or gardengrocer.com with high marks for both.

I have used gardengrocer.com x2. They are amazing!! I got everything on my order, plus asked for several things that were not on the website that I asked them to get. My orders were delivered on time to the resort, even thought we were delayed at the airport.
Bell services held my order until we arrived, kept the perishable items cold. Having snacks, breakfast items, a few lunch items, water, gatorade and beer delivered saved us a bunch! I always over order, as we go in August and get too many drinks. I just make friends with my neighbors and give them our left over water and stuff.

I have not had the best luck with WDW fridges, so i always pack a collapsible cooler and order a Styrofoam one with my groceries.
