Garden Grocer vs. Wegoshop

Any difference/preference between these two? Never used either but will be using one of them this summer. If there is (I'm sure there is) a thread about this topic sorry but if you could point me in that direction that would be great. TIA

We used We Go Shop and LOVED them. We used them because they would shop for whatever you want and would go to more than 1 store if needed (might be an extra cost for that...we had her only go to one store). You can specify what store if you want. The Garden Grocer is a set list you order from and the prices of those items are high. We Go Shop delivered to our villa w/in 30 minutes of us checking in...she even put the groceries away for us. It was quick and we were off to the parks. You pay for the grocery bill (and you can specify brands too) and a delivery fee. We also tipped her. Here are some of the delivery fees from their website (they go higher) and they charge a $2 gas surcharge:

Grocery receipt(s) total up to $50.00 = $18.00 shop & delivery service fee
Grocery receipt(s) total between $50.00 - $100.00 = $23.00 shop & delivery service fee
Grocery receipt(s) total between $100.00 - $200.00 = $28.00 shop & delivery service fee

WeGoShop ROCKED for us at BLT! we checked in early (12:45pm) and Patti was there with our groceries not an hour after we checked in at the Contemporary.

We loved it because we could specify what brands we wanted and what quantities. I went to my local grocery store and looked up sizes in ounces for things we wanted and specific qualities of things. (Organic, grass-fed, whole grain, whatever.) Our shopper even got us B1G1 deals (we got two bottles of soda for free and she bought them because it didn't cost us extra). We even chose what store we wanted; we selected Publix. Bell services helped her load everything onto a luggage cart and brought it up to our room. We got a copy of the receipt, which helps us analyze costs. We are extremely satisfied with WeGoShop and would probably still use them for snacks and liquor even if we go down next time on DDP.

Yeah, this is the only confusing part of WeGoShop. You have to go to the WeGoShop.com website and pick "Florida" and "Disney Area Resorts". There's an email address for Amy, who is the current manager. You write an email with all of the things you want. I made a Google Doc with the brand, quantity and notes for her and then just pasted it in the email. We were trying to cut costs also so I often times wrote "store brand or whatever is cheapest", unless I really wanted a specific brand.

Hey there....
I saw you wrote a similar post re@ wegoshop in another thread. I had responded there, but not sure If you went back to it. Either way, I highly recommend wegoshop. Absolutely worth it. And depending when you are going.... You want to submit order 4-6 weeks ahead.

If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started with a dream and a mouse.

We have used wegoshop for the last 5 years and have been totally satisfied each time - even when there was an ownership change a few years ago - it was seamless.

We used We Go Shop for the first time in September. They were great. They got everything on our list (particular brands, flavors, etc) and were there right when we checked in.

The fees seem kind of high, but if you are ordering more than a few things you will quickly make up the difference versus the mark up on items from the Disney grocery service or Garden Grocer.

And that's not even taking into account the value of your time while on vacation or the cost of a rental car to get to the store if you weren't already planning to rent one.

If you really want to keep the costs down their website has links to all the area stores. You can click through to them to see their weekly sales flyer and try to plan your meals that way.

I used Garden Grocer. For me, I like looking at the pictures and choosing what I wanted and not having to worry about the size etc. Each time I have used Garden Grocer, everything was perfect.

Our food has always been delivered on time and all the items were correct.

As to the prices, it didn't seem to bad to me.
