    I'm staying in the villa in animal kingdom, it has a fridge and stove. Is there somewhere nearby to go grocery shopping?

    Hi Jennifer!

    We love the Villas at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, and it is one of our Home Resorts as Disney Vacation Club Members. One of the reasons we enjoy staying in Disney’s Deluxe Villas is the full kitchen and the washer and dryer. We eat breakfast in our rooms most mornings and often a few dinners as well. Sometimes I enjoy the more relaxed atmosphere of dining in our villa, and for our larger family, it can be a good value.

    There are a few options when it comes to groceries. If you will have your own vehicle or would like to take a taxi, Uber or Lyft, there is a nearby Target where you can pick up basic grocery items.

    We don't usually have a car, so I use a grocery order service. Guests staying in Deluxe Villas can use Disney's Grocery Order Service for Disney Vacation Club, even if they are not Disney Vacation Club Members. Simply fill out the order form for your specific resort, and fax or mail your form to arrive at least 3 business days before your arrival. Groceries will be delivered to your room after 5 pm on the day of your check-in.  

    You can also use an outside grocery delivery service. I usually use Dizzy Dolphin Delivery, but other popular options are Garden Grocer, Instacart, or Amazon Prime Now. There is a delivery fee if you use Disney’s Bell Services to deliver your groceries to your room, but you can save this fee if you retrieve your groceries yourself.

    I hope this helps as you plan your visit, Jennifer! Please let me know if you have any additional questions as you plan your visit.

    Have a Disney Day!
