    My family will be staying at Animal Kingdom this Christmas, but we aren't sure which villa. Are we still able to order groceries for delivery a few days prior to arrival? With the phased reopening, I wasn't sure if this was still an option.

    Hello Nikia!

    Welcome to planDisney! Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas is one of my family’s Disney Vacation Club Home Resorts. Even after many stays here, it is still a family favorite. We all enjoy the quiet atmosphere and the feeling that you have journeyed to a far-off, exotic location. Where else can you enjoy your morning coffee on the balcony while you watch the giraffe and zebra munch on their breakfast?

    Speaking of breakfast, ordering groceries is a great way to get the most value out of your villa. You’ll save money overall, and get a good early start to the day. I often feel the first hour or two after park opening is the very best time to hit a few popular attractions, so why waste it eating breakfast? You have a few options for grocery delivery. Any Guest staying in a villa can use Disney’s own grocery delivery service you don't need to be a Disney Vacation Club Member! While the options are limited, it is certainly the most convenient option and a great way to stock up on basics, especially for breakfasts, drinks, and snacks. Simply fill out the form for the correct resort, and send it to the resort several days before check-in!

    Alternately, you can use an outside grocery delivery service. My family uses Dizzy Dolphin Delivery, but other popular options are Garden Grocer, Instacart, or Amazon. You can arrange to have items delivered to the resort the day of your arrival and Bell Services will keep items cold until your arrival. If you need a wide variety of items or plan to cook full meals in your room, these are all good options.

    I hope one of these options will work for you Nikia! Wishing you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
