I was wondering about Garden Grocer - how far in advance do we place the order?

Can you use Amazon to ship items to your resort? I was going to order some things off of Amazon, but they usually ship using the USPS. I read on this thread not to ship by USPS since it may not get there. Has anyone ordered off of Amazon and gotten their items in time? Amazon is showing me that what I want to order has free 2 day shipping.

(if this has already been addressed, I apologize)
Due to special dietary requirements, it looks like I'll be ordering groceries to the resort. I plan to stay at CBR; does anyone know if I'd have problems if I set up my order so that it's supposed to arrive at the resort just before/as I do? (I'm thinking we should arrive at CBR around noon-ish) It would be almost all refrigerated items, and in mid-September I'd like to get them safely tucked into the room fridge!
And has anyone ordered fruits/vegetables; is the quality decent? I'd hate to order a bunch of apples and receive stuff I wouldn't pick out for myself in the grocery store!

We used WeGoShop, ordered cold stuff (as well as fruit, water and other groceries). We got a call that our stuff was Bell Services at CBR; cold stuff was kept refrigerated. I had no issues with anything; would do it again for sure. We actually picked up our order, although I don't know why (my husband used a luggage cart, but we were in Aruba 51, not far from guest services). We were in WDW Christmas week and I had placed the order 2 weeks previously. Did not get my delivery day of choice, but the next day (which was still ok). So how far out to place your order could be based on how busy it will be while you're there.

We used Garden Grocer last 2 times we went and it was wonderful. Totally worth it.

I have used Garden Grocer 2 times. I think I scheduled 2 or 3 weeks out. Both times I scheculed a specific deliver time. We were in our room at that time, but they came early. No worries though as both times our resort stored the times (POR and BW).

Thank you for this info. We planned to head to MK right after arrival. I will probably only have milk for refridgeration so I am glad to know they will keep it cold.
Should I still call and see, ask how long or if they put it into room fridge

I just LOVE this topic, so much great info. We will arrive at WLR about 9pm. And want to be @ rope drop the next day. Will garden grocer deliver before we arrive? We r not ordering refrigerated items, so if its delivered the day we arrive (but earlier) that would rock. Anyone know?

Yes, they will. I actually JUST placed my order for next Saturday on GG 10 minutes ago. You can schedule a delivery time. I would note in the special section area to please leave your order with bell services.

The original post show boardwalk inn but not the boardwalk villa address.
Can you ship to BWV? If so, what is the address?
also the inn has an * showing a cost to ship to.
How about the Bwv?

Thanks

Are the room refrigerators large enough to hold a gallon of milk, half gallon of OJ and some other items? Staying at the BC.
