14 May Walt Disney World Resort: Guide to Grocery Delivery Services
As a mom of 4, I travel with food for when hunger strikes. While vacationing at Disney there is a myriad of wonderful dining options to please your palate. I often find I still like to have items on hand which include: fruit, bottled water, cereal/pop tarts, and granola bars. When my kids were babies, I also packed diapers and wipes which were essential items. For guests flying to Disney, you may not have a car to head out to the store, but these grocery delivery services can help and you do not need to go grocery shopping while you’re on vacation!
When ordering groceries from one of the delivery services, make sure to include the following information:
- Name on the reservation
- Reservation Number
- Arrival Date
- Resort Address
When your grocery order has been brought to your resort, it will be delivered to Bell Services. There is a cooler area at Bell Services for the storing of any perishables.

At this time, if you are staying at the Swan and Dolphin Resort, they do not allow grocery delivery services.
