    We are staying at the animal kingdom villas (not through DVC, it's an exchange with RCI) and we are not renting a car. Is there are grocery service that we can order through and have them delivered to the hotel?

    Hi Susan!

    Congratulation on planning your Walt Disney World vacation! Having enjoyed a stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, I can't begin to say how beautiful the lobby is, how well appointed the rooms are (kids loved the bunk bed option) and the breakfast at Boma was divine!

    All Disney resorts have a small "convenience" section in the food courts or merchandise store, carrying such grocery essentials as milk, bread, cookies, as well as beer/wine and all types of Disney snacks and toiletries (for those who forget that essential toothbrush. While not as vast as a grocery store, it works great for those grab n go necessities throughout the day. Another option is to head to the grocery/convenience stores that are outside the WDW complex. Disney does not offer shuttle service to stores off property, you can request a taxi from the front desk. Taxi pricing can range from $15 and up from the resorts to stores right outside the WDW complex.

    One of the best ways to save money (and to make sure you have foods and snacks to your liking) is by ordering groceries for your resort room, either via Gardengrocer.com or another online grocery delivery service.  When it arrives at your resort, it will be held in bell services for you until your arrival.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation! -Malanie
