    What grocery stores deliver to Art of Animation resort, and can you order in advance?

    Hi Nora! Welcome to planDisney! I am so glad you found us to ask your question about grocery delivery! 

    Over the years, my family has stayed in a variety of accommodations at Walt Disney World. Whenever we have access to a kitchenette or full kitchen, we have groceries delivered. I love to make breakfast in the room, giving us all a great start to our day! Otherwise, I would enter the theme park and immediately be in search of food! 

    I have used various grocery delivery services throughout this time. Many moon ago, only independent companies offered this service, with a large delivery fee and product prices that seemed higher than the national average. In the year 2021, we have a TON of options! At the current time, my favorite delivery service is Instacart. This is an app for your smartphone, and you can even share a list between users. This is especially helpful for our family, with 2 grown children. They can add what they want to the list (I usually have final veto power), and then I place the order a day or so in advance of our trip. 

    When ordering, I am always sure to put our last name and reservation number in the app. Instacart can deliver to your resort’s Bell Services, and they will either hold it for you to pick up or deliver it to your room for you. I have even had the groceries delivered on our arrival day before we even arrive! Please note that the Instacart shoppers will have access to contact you with questions about your order, so don’t plan to be out of cell range while they are shopping! I made that mistake once, I was on a plane to Orlando. 

    You also might be surprised at what is available at the main gift shop at Art of Animation. I recently stayed at Old Key West Resort, and discovered that I could have purchased everything I wanted for our breakfast sandwiches right at the resort (and the price wasn’t bad, either!).  

    I hope this helps you with planning for your upcoming stay at Art of Animation. Be sure to take a dip in the Big Blue Pool while you are there! It’s one of my favorite resort pools. 

    Happy Shopping!
