Garden Grocer?

Does your order usually get there at the time slot you requested? Or does it depend on how busy they are that day?

Last summer when we stayed at the Boardwalk we ordered from Garden Grocer. They actually my called my cell phone to see if we were in the room and then called back to say that it had to be left with the bellservices, who then brought it up after we called and said that we were there and waiting for the order. So we did have a delivery fee and tip added to our order and then had to tip the bell services person.

When we placed the order there were choices for delivery times that were available. And if I remember right they came a little after my time slot. And I think we were the first time slot in the morning.

Do you just bring the suitcase to the UPS store as is or does it go in a box? Also, does it go by weight or size? Sorry to ask so many question but this sounds like a GREAT idea. The thought of not having to take the suitcase to the airport is awesome.
Thanks,
Laurie

Laurie,

It is cheaper to go to a UPS building instead of the UPS store.

Well I didn't read this thread that well before I shipped my packed but now that it's already shipped I just noticed that 1) I left off reservation numbers, 2) I put my name down instead of my husband's which is what the reservation is under. Ugh..... I'm such an idiot! Do you think if I call POFQ and give them a heads up or is it a lost cause because they are too big/too many people? It is going to arrive Friday, we will arrive on Monday.

You should be fine as long as your name is on it.. Just ask for it by your name on arrival.

We used Garden Grocer before and they were wonderful. We stayed at Disney's cabins and when we were at the pool, I got a call on my cell phone and said that our groceries had arrived. I asked the CM if I needed to go back to the cabin and they said not if I didn't want to, they would escort garden grocer in and put all the groceries away. I was fine with that, and by the time we got done with the pool and went back to the cabin, all of our groceries were put away, what a nice beginning to a great vacation. We will be using Garden Grocer twice in December as we staying in a rental house in the beginning of our vacation and then I will use them when we check into the Boardwalk.

What about shipping packages home? I know we are going to buy my DD the giant Mickey and Minnie this year, and I don't want to pay to get that stuff home on the plane. Can we have some one box up our purchases to get shipped home before we leave or would we have to find a box and tape somewhere and do it ourselves?

Also can you ship to Villa's?

When you purchase these items ask to ship it directly home. I remember people doing this and thought it was a great idea. I think you do not pay tax but have to pay for shipping. It may cancel inself out. Don't quote me on that, double check

Thank you but I was wondering if I could send them all home at the end, or maybe buy something on the last day and have them box it all up together. There is no way I can get my DD a giant Mickey or anything for that matter on our trip and then tell her she cant see it again till she gets home It just wont happen

Are you planning on purchases these in downtown disney? I saw and was asked by the cashier in the large disney store there if I wanted it shipped to my home. I am sure if you ask at any of the stores they will.
