    HI there We are off to Disney World and staying at the Animal Kingdom. We are coeliac and I wondered can we order online groceries and have them delivered to the resort. Last time we went and stayed at Old Key West we did this? Many thanks

    Jambo Justine!

    You'll be watching the giraffes and gazelles frolicking on the savanna at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge before you know it. It is such a majestic and magnificent place to stay at Walt Disney World Resort. You must be so excited!

    It is absolutely possible to place an advance order for groceries online to be delivered to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel. I have done this no less than a dozen times and it works quite nicely, especially when someone in your group has strong preferences or specific dietary needs and you want to have certain food items on hand. Although there are a variety of organizations that will deliver groceries to you during your vacation, the one I typically use is Garden Grocer. You can find them easily online. Be sure to place your order as early as possible to guarantee a delivery time, but no later than two days prior to your arrival. If you place your order 60 or more days in advance, they discount the subtotal of your order by 10%. (Please note that your Walt Disney World Resort hotel will charge a nominal fee to receive your order.)

    Aside from your grocery order, Justine, I just wanted to encourage you to share your dietary needs with the many fabulous chefs who create culinary masterpieces throughout Walt Disney World Resort. I travel with students who have a wide variety of dietary concerns and I have never encountered a company more committed to accommodating its Guests' dietary restrictions. They will go out of their way to make something tasty and delightful for you. Just be sure to ask to speak with the chef when you enter a dining establishment on property during your vacation.

    Wishing you many magical memories on your upcoming trip,
