    We are arriving on Christmas day so there is no instacart service that day. Is it okay to have it delivered the night before or do i need to wait until the next day. thanks so much.

    Season's greetings, Amber!

    A warm welcome to planDisney and thank you for stopping by with an excellent Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. I'm excited to hear you'll be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of the year! You'll be arriving tomorrow, Amber. Your countdown is nearly over and your enchanting escape is about to begin! I'd be happy to help you prepare for a merry and memorable Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Amber, I understand you'll be arriving tomorrow but hope to have groceries delivered to your Disney Resort hotel ahead of your arrival since your preferred delivery service will be unavailable tomorrow. Not to worry! You may certainly have your groceries delivered to Bell Services at your Disney Resort hotel this evening for pick-up upon your arrival tomorrow. (The exception is for items that are age-restricted, like alcohol. Disney Resort hotels cannot accept these items on behalf of any Guest.) Be sure that your order includes both the word "GUEST" and your arrival date clearly marked on the bags or documentation provided with the order. If you have ordered items that require refrigeration, I also recommend adding a note on the order to bring this to the Cast Members' attention. When you arrive, you may either request that Bell Services Cast Members deliver your order to your Resort hotel room for a nominal fee ($6 at the time of writing, subject to change), or you may pick up your belongings from the Front Desk free of charge!

    Visiting the Walt Disney World Resort at Christmastime is a bucket-list item for me, Amber. I hope you enjoy every very merry moment in the beautifully decorated theme parks during this special time of year! I encourage you to take a peek at the Hours & Events Calendar to check out all of the exciting holiday offerings taking place during your vacation. I wish your travel party a holly jolly holiday celebration at The Most Magical Place on Earth! If you have any additional planning questions, you're always welcome to revisit us at planDisney. We're here to help you make the most of your time during your Walt Disney World Resort vacations!

    Happy holidays,
