    Has anyone done this? Is there a fee from Disney for this?

    Garden Grocer are crazy expensive, plus a delivery fee. I use Amazon Fresh all the time, seems like any easy way to go seeing that you can schedule your deliveries.

    I'd love some thoughts and feedback on this idea. Staying at BLT in August...

    I just looked up and Amazon Fresh is not available for the zip 32830

    Try looking at Instacart - it's delivery service for Publix in the area. You can also do Costco, Whole Foods, and a Wine/Liquor store. Prices are spot on for items in the area.

    No.

    You're going to pay Disney $5 per package for delivery for anything that arrives UPS / USPS / FedEx. Garden Grocer is a MUCH better value if you're ordering anything large, like cases of water.

    We did instacart from Publix and Whole foods. You are alerted when your shopper is shopping and on their way to you. We had our items delivered to bell services and had them bring it up to our room when we were back from the parks. Instacart notified me when our items were left with bell services. You do pay a little more for some items but for me it is 100% worth it.

    We just used them a few weeks ago. As the person shopped we had updates when a sale item was out of stock. We coukd approve the replacement. We told them to meet at the lobby so it was easy. Got a text when they left to meet us and tracked the location.

    Sadly our frozen waffles were partially thawed but they refunded and gave us a credit on our account since I didn't want to be bothered with a replacement.

    They can deliver to you directly or to Bell Services

    No additional fee if they drop at Bell Services?

    Last time we had it dropped at Bell services we just paid a tip like we do any time we leave something with them. That was in June of last year though. I picked up in person this year.

    Basically if the delivery comes via a courier like delivery, then there is no additional fee. If it comes via FedEx/USPS/UPS you will get an additional fee. So Garden Grocer, WeGoShop, Amazon Prime Now etc should all have no additional fee under the current policy.

    As a PP said, I don't believe Fresh currently delivers to WDW (haven't checked all applicable zip codes) but Prime Now does, and may cover your necessary grocery needs.
