Where to have food delivered from?

We usually drive to Disney World so we bring our own snacks and drinks. We will probably be flying this time so we want to order some breakfast, snacks and drinks to the hotel. Where do you order from to be delivered to the hotel? I heard Walmart delivers. I also heard some hotels charge a fee - Is that true?

Thanks for the help.

We order from Garden Grocer and have been very satisfied. We were not charged a fee by the resort (POFQ), I THINK Coronado Springs may charge a fee due to it being a convention hotel.

I have used Garden grocer several times with no problems. Be aware that there is a minimum order. I think it is $40.

We always use WeGoShop. We've had them deliver to OKW, SSR, and BCV and have never had them charge a fee. If your order alcohol, you have to be there when they deliver. Othewise, they will just leave it with Bell Services.

We've used Garden Grocer twice in the past and have been extremely happy with the results.... It's like pea pod.... Online ordering, they call you to verify. Make sure you put a note to "leave with bell services if we are not available" and then speak with bell services when you check in. They have refrigeration and can hold it for you so you're not waiting around for it. Then when you are in your room, they can bring it over for you. Order about a week in advance, this way you can have one less thing to worry about.

We used GardenGrocer for our trip last June- had them deliver to the hotel before we would actually be checking in (since we were arriving late), and within 10 minutes of getting into our room, the Front Desk was calling ready to deliver our Groceries (they will hold everything for you in a fridge until you are ready otherwise).

We just placed an order for our 2nd trip (coming up in 11 days), and received a confirmation call immediately after. We are extremely happy with the service, I would recommend them!

Good luck!

We use Garden Grocer too and have never had a problem. Everything is always there waiting when we arrive.

Another big thumbs up for Garden Grocer. Prior to driving to the World we used them every trip and it worked out great.

Why can't you order alcohol and have it left with Bell Service? Because they might take it?? We were going order some wine & snacks to arrive the day we get there but we won't get to the hotel until mid afternoon.

We've ordered wine and beer from Garden Grocer and they were left with Bell Services with no problem.

We usually drive and bring our own food as well. In December we flew and ordered from Garden Grocer and had no problem. We actually went to the parks before our room was ready. When Garden Grocer brought our order according to the time we requested, our hotel held it for us until our room was ready.. Just a reminder, the charge for delivery was $12.00, there was also a surcharge because of the price of gasoline. And don't forget, the tip. I think it cost me about $23.00 to have my groceries delivered. If, I decide to fly again, I will use them again! We stayed at Bay Lake Towers!
