    Jesslyn from ON Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    1) Are there convenient stores within Disney or will meal plans start again in 2023? 2) Are there kettles or hot water available at the Caribbean resort (we are staying there) 3) MERS shuttle- good to transport from airport to resort, any discounts?

    Hiya Jesslyn!

    Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for sending us this magical question today! I am always honoured to help fellow Canadians plan their Disney vacations, so I was so excited when I saw your question in our queue. Plus, since I grew up in Quebec, that practically makes us neighbours, right?

    To answer your first question, each Disney Resort hotel has a section in their merchandise locations with various food items that can be used to cook your own meals. This section usually includes breakfast items and some frozen meals, so if you would like anything else, I would also suggest looking into placing a grocery order. Indeed, groceries can be delivered to your Disney Resort hotel and brought to your room for a small fee. All you have to do is place your order through a third-party vendor and put your Resort address in your information. Plus, it is ideal to write "GUEST" next to your name on the package. Make sure that your order will not require proof of ID or a signature or that you can meet the vendor to provide those things, as Disney Cast Members will not do so on your behalf. Lastly, these orders are subject to your Resort's specific requirements, so I would recommend asking for more information at the front desk upon checking in.

    As for your second and third questions, MEARS Connect does not currently offer discounts, but there are different pricing options, so you can pick the one that best fits your budget. Also, while you will have a coffee machine in your room that can provide hot water, these do not offer boiling water as a kettle would. However, each Disney Resort hotel has different amenities, so I would recommend also asking your Resort's front desk to be sure. If they do not have any available, you should also be able to get hot water at your Resort's quick-service food and beverage location

    I hope this was helpful, Jesslyn, and that you and your Ohana will have the best day ever on your next trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your vacation, please don't hesitate to reach back out. It is always my pleasure to help you, neighbour!

    Have a magical day,
