I almost used garden grocery last trip. I’m a pretty loyal customer, so if I like a service I’m willing to take a small hit on price to stick with a company I have used and trust.I haven't used drizly but use Instacart for alcohol (not beer/wine).
Can I ask why you would use drizly and not Instacart. I thought I did a lot of research
looking for the easiest with best prices (although convenience usually will come first for me) and wonder why more people aren't using Instacart. Maybe I'm missing something and want to know what LOL
For instance, why are people saying they are still using Garden Grocer even with higher prices, is it convenience and if so, what makes them better than Instacart.
Thank you so much!
We ordered from Publix which uses Instacart for delivery and met them at HH. After that, she had no problem driving to my building (64) and even offered me a ride also. From what I understand, they cannot deliver directly to the room, which makes no sense because pizza deliveries can.I will be staying at OKW. Will they deliver to HH or to bldg. I am staying at?
I use to use wegoshop for many years and didnt have to be present for the alcohol to be delivered since I had sent a copy of my license. Does GG deliver alcohol other than beer/wine? I really hate to have to wait around and book our delivery for when we arrive/before dinner and if I can ger beer, wine and Jose Curovo margarita as well as food delivered before we arrive and have it waiting for me, I will look i to this tomorrow. I wasnt aware I didnt need to be present for alcohol delivery for GG and hope they deliver more than beer/wine.We’ve been using Garden Grocer for years and always place a big order for our arrival day.
PROS: Reliable, never let us down, will happily deliver booze without you being there in person if you scan and upload your license when you place the order.
CONS: Clunky “add-on order” system where you can’t just modify an existing order, adding or subtracting stuff. You have to place a new “add-on order” and designate your original order as the “parent order”. And to remove something you have to send them an email. Fiddly and annoying compared to services like Peapod and FreshDirect (which we use at home).
Check their prices, total cost for our order would have been $100 higher compared to shopping for yourself.
Thank you for this information. I use Instacart for food and alcohol. I do not want to Uber back and forth to a store on my vacation and not sure my bill would be $100 more but for the convenience and my vacation time, Ill pay it.Thanks!
Same. I used Prime Now for the first time two weeks ago. The colds were in insulated wrap but I am not sure if they were in the fridge at BWV, the bags weren't marked cold like garden grocer used to do. Or if they were it wasn't obvious?We used prime now for this trip and prices were great but inventory changes frequently and both times I ordered, our cold groceries while properly marked were not refigerated at Kidani. I don’t know if their markings are difficult for hotel staff to see or if Kidani is particularly bad at refigerating cold items. Either way I would use again but plan to pick them up immediately after delivery.
This is where I’m leaning too. On Friday I went to input a GG order. The prices are sky high now and I’ve reached my breaking point. What did it was an Entenmann’s coffee cake of all things. $10.49 on GG. $6.49 in the hotel gift shop. When your prices are more than the Disney resort gift shop, things have gotten crazy. I’ll try Dizzy Dolphin for February. Fingers crossed. Been a GG customer for ten years. A company needs to reevaluate when they are losing customers of ten years.Used to use Garden Grocer. No More. Dizzy Dolphin the only way to go for us. Personal hands-on service, organized groceries, wonderful follow-through and follow-up. The ladies that run it are fantastic.
And, with GG, you are limited to what they store in their warehouse. They will not find you "special" items like DDD will. Love those ladies!This is where I’m leaning too.
