Turner drugs if you do not want anything else. I have priced other stuff and they are the least expensive. [Note how I did not say cheap but the less of all evils]

I've ordered from Costco with no problems before... you do not need to be a member and they will ship it right to your resort.....But please be aware that Disney may charge guests for shipped parcels when staying at Disney resorts with business centers. These include Disney's BoardWalk Resort, Disney's Contemporary Resort, Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney's Yacht Club Resort. Handling fees range from $3-$10 depending on weight and as much as $70 for a 100-pound pallet. Typically, these charges are for corporate guests shipping large quantities for conventions. Regular resort guests should not have to pay handling fees, however. It's best to call the resort before shipping anything and ask if there will be a handling charge and how to avoid it.
Oh and BTW Walmart also will ship..........
Ship the water to the resort address and include
Name
Check in date

We shipped from Walmart. I shipped other items like diapers, wipes, swim diapers and a few snacks so my total hit $45 and I got free shipping. It was only $7 something for 2 cases.

Never thought of using Turner for non-pharmacy items. Thanks for the new option!

We ordered 3 cases of water from Walmart for about $14 which included shipping. They shipped via Fedex and the water was waiting for us when we got to AoA.

I find this extremely funny, coming from someone who lives in Philly, because I think Philly water smells like dirt!!!! When we were staying at RMH while my son was in CHOP after he was born (6 years ago) I just couldn't get past the smell of the tap water, and felt like I smelled like dirt after I showered. (it was better in the Hospital, so I started showering there).

Just goes to show you that EVERYONE is different

I think the tap water at WDW is fine... but what do I know???

We had a case of water delivered from costco to POFQ on our last visit. It was $7.00 total. No extra charges. I would definately check first to see if you resort has package delivery charges (as a PP mentioned, some of the resorts do). The process was very easy. I ordered it online about 4 or 5 days prior to our trip. Upon check in at POFQ the CM told me they had a package waiting for me and they brought it up to my room about 10 minutes after we checked in. We will definately do this again next trip.

We have ordered water several times from Costco. This process has been successful most of the time. Please note that when I sent water to Coronado Springs Resort (this was three years ago, so the policy may have changed), I was required to pay a handling fee to the the hotel. Apparently this is a common fee paid at conference hotels. You may want to check with Coronado Springs. I knew this before I ordered the water, so I was not surprised. It was still "worth it."

My only other "glitch" was at the Grand Floridian. Apparently water was delivered to the hotel, but we did not receive it- I called the front desk a couple of times and then gave up. I was not going to press the issue, but Grand Floridian reimbursed us for it. I think it was like $14 or something.

I want to order from walmart.com for our upcoming trip to POR but when I enter my name and por address it says the address doesn't appear to be valid. Could you tell me how u entered the info in the shipping address. I'm nervous the diapers won't get there. Thanks!

@ CSR. We did not receive the water until 3 days after it had been delivered. The cases had been opened, bottles removed, cases rretaped. Each 24 bottle case held only 18 bottles. On top of that we were charged $5 per case resort handling fee. We will never stay @ CSR again.
