As established by my entire Disney Social Media Moms Celebration series of travel posts, I’m a fairly new Walt Disney World vacation-er. Just because I’m new to this, doesn’t mean I’m not going to do my best to make the Disney experience as magical as possible, right?! One of the best things we did for our trip: ordering food from Garden Grocer. What’s Garden Grocer you ask? Well, I’m so happy to introduce you to them!
Disney Social Media Moms Celebration: Garden Grocer
When Mr. Sunflower and I found out both of our hotel rooms had a fridge in them, we were thrilled. It meant saving a ton of money! We loaded up on bottled water, so we didn’t need to buy them at the parks (although we did find out you can score free iced water at most of the quick service spots in all the Disney Parks, for free.) We kept a couple of water bottles in the freezer part of the fridge, and brought them to the parks. Kept us in cold water heaven for most mornings.
Without a car, where do we get bottled water for the fridge?
After the excitement of learning about the fridges in our rooms, it hit us: “where do we get bottled water while there, without a car to head out to a store?” I went into research mode and through my research, found a couple of delivery services in the area. However, the most talked about one: Garden Grocer. Everyone was talking about how great the service was, so I visited the website to look around at what they had to offer. Let’s just say they offer more items to have delivered to your hotel than you can possibly imagine.
Mr. Sunflower went through the product categories, found snacks for us to purchase, along with the water. Disney Parks allows snacks from outside the park, we saved a ton of money getting snack items for the parks. All the snacks were easy to find, too. There are a ton of categories once you click on the SHOP tab. It’s an organization lovers dream!
- Shop by brands, or categories ranging from baby care, to condiments, to soups
- Make sure to shop in the warehouse club category
We had plenty of little bags of goldfish, chips, pretzels, and of course, water bottles. There were so many snacks, we even had them for our flight home in our carry-ons and personal bags! Once the kids returned to school the day after we got home, they had a few snack bags to use for snack time at school!
Our favorite aspects of Garden Grocer
The shopping process is easy. We scheduled a delivery appointment to the Disney Yacht Club Resort. It was delivered to the check in area, and I received a text letting me know it was delivered. Awesome. I let Mr. Sunflower know to collect it. An email arrived, as well as a phone call, from a HUMAN, to confirm delivery.
The customer service is basically THE THING to win me over. It won my return business with them for every trip we do at Disney hotels. They also deliver to other Orlando hotels. The difference? Disney ones more often than not, will hold onto your delivery. You DO NOT have to be present during the two hour delivery window time.
Since we didn’t have a car, nor did I wish to pay for a cab to take us to, and from, the local stores, we ordered the minimum of $40 for delivery, and they only charged a small $14.00 delivery fee. None of us had to be in the room WAITING for the delivery, because it was dropped off at the front desk. We collected it when we were ready to.
No stress, plenty of snacks, and stellar customer service. It made our Disney trip even more magical!
