Just got back and had Costco deliver. They did deliver the Nestle/Zepherhills and it is definitely nasty. Thank goodness I brought some drink mixes for the DD to add or she would never have gotten enough water in that heat.

That's funny...I don't think there's any think wrong with the Nestle/Zepherhills, but everyone has different taste. We ordered 4 cases of it in June and none of us gave the taste a second thought (there were 6 of us). We are all BIG water drinkers.

You're right, we all have different taste. I just assumed that it must be a regional thing. So to this west coaster it didn't taste anything like home or the stuff we would buy in the store here, but thank goodness for the cheap water anyway!

Funny...I thought the same thing about wegoshop....I was not sure what I was doing wrong...

Anyway-
I went with gardengrocer.com. Nice folks, good communication. Will know in a few weeks how good the service is. We are driving down in a PACKED car. People, luggage, stroller, baby stuff....So, to save room I am having diapers, water, and a few other things delivered by GG. May have cost a bit more, but it is more about saving time/room in the car than saving money for us. DISers are smart folks, they seem to like GG...Good enuf for me

Was thinking about having a case of water shipped even though we're only staying for 4 nights -- we're HUGE on drinking lots of water.

How far in advance do you guys have things sent to your resorts?

I haven't tried wegoshop because I didn't like the idea of not knowing how much my bill would be until delivery. I do like gardengrocer. We order 3 different types of milk (due to allergies we need rice, soy and lactaid) and some fruit so that brings us very easy close to the $40 minimum. I just add in a few snacks and we're at the minimum. We fly SWA meaning no worries about number of suitcases so I do pack some dry foods and bowls w/spoons for cereal in my suitcase (I like that this leaves space for souvenirs for our trip home)

Bumping for curiosity's sake: how many days in advance of your arrival do you order your water? Thanks for any replies.

Maybe a silly question, but...is the Florida tap water disgusting? I was wondering about just bringing water bottles with to be filled up as opposed to ordering. I drink tap water at home all the time, but this is Minnesota.

Otherwise, I too am wondering how much in advance to order anything.

Thanks!

Many people have reported that the water in MK in particular has a peculiar odor and taste. In parts of MK, anyway! I know the fountain outside CP (near the restrooms) is refrigerated and tastes good! *LOL*

Everyone has different expectations regarding the taste of water. My cousin and her DH live on a farm in the midwest and they are proud of the taste of the well water. Ahhhhhhh...let's just say I don't quite agree! *LOL*

Does Costco do it anymore? I would like to order from them since water is the only thing we want and the Garden Grocer's minimum order is $40.

I definitely agree that it may be a regional thing...We travel to Florida quite a bit from California and always found that the Nestle/Zephyrillis brand has a weird taste to it. We always make an effort to either find Arrowhead or Crystal Geiser brand. Just a personal preference.

Yes, personally, I found Florida tap water unpleasant when I visited WDW three years ago. It seems to have a sulfur smell.

Now, I will admit I may be a bit spoiled as the tap water in my area is quite good.

Anyway, I recommend ordering a case of bottled water. We ordered water and some groceries from Garden Grocer last time and it worked out well. We are planning to do this again when we visit WDW again at end of November.

Have a great first trip to the World!
