    Hello, I live in the UK and we are staying at Disneys Art of Animation next year. How do I order groceries from Walmart to be delivered to the hotel please? Do I need to live in America to be able to order?

    Well hello there Jackie, and welcome to planDisney!

    On behalf of international travelers everywhere to Disney Destinations far and wide, I am glad to be able to answer this question for you as being able to order groceries has definitely been handy in the past when we've visited with large groups, folks with dietary needs or even Resort Hotel stays with included kitchens! My husband and I recently brought together a number of friends and family from across the globe for a Walt Disney World Resort stay to celebrate our wedding and our international guests simply marveled at the variety of things that one could purchase at the local grocery stores and Supercenters. While here at planDisney I can't quite speak directly to that particular retailer's grocery delivery policies (and highly recommend that you contact them directly to find out more from their end), I can let you know how our guests from the UK were able to manage groceries delivered to their Resort Hotel in a few steps:

    • They first created an account on the retailer website, which only required an email address and no proof of U.S. residency.
    • They set their store preference to be the Kissimmee Supercenter which was located nearby.
    • When specifying the delivery address, a friendly Cast Member informed them that it would be best to include the name that is on their Resort Hotel reservation along with the word "GUEST" to ensure that it is delivered to the correct location. 
    • I called to confirm that the address for Disney's Art of Animation Resort is 1850 Animation Way, Lake Buena Vista, Florida, 32830-8400.
    • Some guests reported having the ability to request that these items be delivered directly to their room by Bell Services Cast Members for an additional fee, though this may not be guaranteed and policies may be subject to change without prior notice. The Cast Member that I spoke to along with our international guests all agreed that if provided with an option to meet the grocery courier or driver directly, that this is the most effective way to ensure a successful delivery. 
    I hope that this works well for you Jackie, though I must recommend that others have reported that either driving their rental vehicle or scheduling to be picked up with a ride-sharing app has been equally effective and cost relatively the same after delivery fees and tips! You might be interested to learn that the Disney Dining Plans will be making their long-awaited return, and as long as your visit is after January 9, 2024 your stay may be eligible to have this added onto an Existing Reservation if you've already purchased your Holiday Package

    We hope to see you back here again at planDisney Jackie, and do come back to ask any more questions that you might have or connect with Louise, our representative for the United Kingdom!

    May you successfully acquire the groceries that you seek on your next Disney adventure!
