On-Property Groceries Delivery Services Shipping Groceries Resorts with Kitchens and Kitchenettes

Many guests looking to save a bit of money on Disney food and dining expenses can save a bit of money by having quick breakfast options, water bottles, or snacks in the room.  Even if you don’t have a car, you have a number of options for Walt Disney World area grocery delivery services.

On-Property Grocery Options

Gift shops at Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts and other listed resorts have more groceries.While not as inexpensive as some local shopping options, it is a convenient way to buy a few staples and snacks, etc. For those camping at Fort Wilderness or staying in a cabin, the Settlement Trading Post sells gifts, sundries, groceries, snacks, and beverages.

A few Vehicle-for-Hire companies will include a 30-minute free grocery stop with any roundtrip airport transportation. The cost of the shopping trip is already included in the price, but it’s important to schedule it in advance.

Grocery Delivery Services

Walt Disney World area grocery delivery services are available locally. These services will leave deliveries with bell services if customers are not present. Some delivery services will leave items that can spoil in a cooler. It’s also been reported that bell services at some (if not all) resorts have a refrigerator/freezer unit for storing perishable items. It’s important to contact resorts and grocery services beforehand to confirm storage options for perishable items. Ordering bulky items, like baby supplies or cases of water, can be a lifesaver at resorts without cooking facilities.View Recommended grocery services below:

Note: The Swan and Dolphin Resort, which is not owned by Disney, does not allow the delivery of groceries on the premises by any outside service.


Disney veterans often recommend this service as reliable and reasonably priced. Shop online and payment is made in advance by credit card or PayPal. There is also an option to call in your credit card info and a cash-on-delivery option that requires your attendance. Deliveries are made from 8:00 a.m. till 9:00 p.m., 7 days a week, and can be scheduled days in advance. Garden Grocer has a large selection of products including baby items and alcoholic beverages and even an aisle called “Park Essentials”.

Order well in advance for busy times like Christmas and Thanksgiving to ensure delivery availability. Garden Grocer leaves groceries with Bell Services, carefully packaged, with the perishable items packaged separately, and ensures that Bell Services holds perishables in cold storage. Delivery is $2 for orders over $200 and is $14 for those under $200. The minimum order amount for Garden Grocer is $40. Tipping is optional. There is also a restocking fee on orders canceled within 48 hours of scheduled delivery. Orders canceled prior to 48 hours incur no fee.

Shipping Groceries

Another option is to shop before leaving home and ship supplies to your resort. Disney resorts will accept packages with a confirmed reservation number. When shipping food, consider cereals, Pop-Tarts, pasta, sauces, instant mashed potatoes, bread, drink mix, and snacks. Use this list of resort phone numbers to call for specific resort shipping information. Some vacationers buy cases of bottled water at great prices from Staples online and have it delivered. Be sure to include the lead name on your reservation, the reservation number, and the arrival date with your resort address.

In addition, another shipping option is to use Amazon.com’s Grocery Department. Amazon Prime members receive free shipping and discounted items. Cases of bottled water are available.

Note: Disney may charge guests for shipped parcels when staying at Disney resorts with business centers. These include Disney’s BoardWalk Resort, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney’s Yacht Club Resort. Handling fees range from $3-$10 depending on weight.  Regular resort guests may not have to pay handling fees, however. It’s best to call the resort before shipping anything and ask if there will be a handling charge and how to avoid it.

 Resorts with Kitchens and Kitchenettes

Disney’s Deluxe Villa accommodations can add to your vacation dollar if you’re willing to spend at least part of your vacation in the kitchen. These are the only units with full kitchens, other than the Fort Wilderness Cabins (which are considered a Moderate resort). The Deluxe Villas have limited availability and should be booked well in advance. We suggest using the services of a Disney-specialized travel agency to help find the resort that best meets your needs.  The following Disney resorts have rooms that include full kitchens and kitchenettes.

All one-bedroom and larger Villas at these resorts and the cabins at Fort Wilderness include a completely equipped kitchen with an eating area, full-size fridge, microwave, stove, oven, toaster, dishwasher, coffee maker, and a complete set of cookware, dishes, silverware, and assorted other kitchen utensils. In addition, studios in the Villas include a kitchenette that contains an under-the-counter fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, a few cabinets, and a small sink. Glasses and mugs are available inside, but the studios only provide paper bowls, plates, and plastic cutlery. There is a small table in the studio, but no real eating area such as those found in the one-bedroom and larger villas. The kitchenette is for light meal prep only, not full meals.

For other less elaborate cooking facilities, Disney has Family Suites at All-Star Music Resort and Art of Animation Resort. Family Suites can accommodate up to six people. Suites come equipped with a kitchenette with microwave, small refrigerator (4.3 cu. ft), and coffee pot for simple in-room food preparation. Follow this link to view photos of the All-Star Music Family Suites. When buying groceries for resorts, keep in mind that the refrigerators are small and can only hold limited amounts of frozen and refrigerated items. Milk should not be larger than a half-gallon. Walt Disney World area grocery delivery services would be ideal at Deluxe Villa and Family Suites.

The resorts lack convenient and affordable grocery shopping options for cooking. Disney veterans have used a number of strategies to overcome the shopping problem while sticking to their meal budgets. The obvious solution for those with a car is to drive to a local Publix or Super Walmart to shop (see our Shopping Locally section). With the convenience of Disney’s transportation options, many vacationers no longer need a car. In this situation, there are at least a few approaches to consider.
