For the amount of shopping you are talking about I would suggest the Hess garage at DTD.

Depending on which secton of Saratoga you are staying in you might even be able to walk there. If not just take the DTD bus to the second stop and walk across the road. I take an empty wheeled suitcase so it's easy to take back to the hotel. Prices are much cheaper than Goodings and probably Garden Grocer when you factor in the delivery charge.

Somebody posted instructions, on (I think) the first page of this thread. If not there, then near the top of the second page.

Go to the West Side bus stop in Downtown Disney. Stand in front of one of the benches, looking straight ahead toward the road. You'll see the Hess Mart from there. Walk from there through the parking lot, veering to your left, as there will be a crosswalk on that side when you get to the road. Cross the road and there you are.

What time does Hess close? Is it still open around 10pm or so?

I prefer wegoshop because they will shop at the store of your choice and you will pay the regular store prices. Garden Grocer is convenient because they have items right there on their site so you can choose what you want, but they have a huge markup.

I compared the two and found I saved significantly with wegoshop. We buy food for the week including cereal, milk, bagels, fruit, granola bars, eggs, sandwich stuff plus dinner meat, potatoes, veggies, lettuce, etc. I like the fact that we can get fresh fruits for the room and snacks and only pay a delivery charge, rather than a big markup on each item.

They will also take orders for beer.

Just my preference, but wanted to put in a good word for them.

I too prefer wegoshop.com. I have used them 7 times and highly recommend them. Their delivery fee is higher, but as PP mentioned you pay the exact grocery store of your choice price. Each item is not marked up like at Garden Grocer. They will give you the original store receipt.
We order cases of water, juice, coffee, soda, beer, wine, breakfast foods, fruit, cheese and crackers and other snacks.
I highly recommend them.
