    We will be staying at the Grand Floridian. I am thinking of using a service to deliver some groceries to the resort. Do I need to be present for a delivery? Is there a charge for that? Thank you!

    Hello Kristen,

    Oh, I am so delighted to hear you are planning a stay at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort. You are going to love it. Every time I walk into that resort, I am in awe of the grandeur and elegance of the lobby. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the convenience to Magic Kingdom is spectacular.

    As the mother of three, we also like to plan ahead and order groceries to keep in our resort room for snacks and maybe a quick breakfast. We have always used GardenGrocer.com. They deliver to all of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels. There is a delivery fee, but depending on how large your order is, the fee can vary. There is an order minimum, too. The great thing is that you do not have to be present when they deliver. If you are not in your room, bell services can hold your items until you return. They even have a cold storage area to keep perishable refrigerated items. Simply call the bell stand when you are ready for your items to be delivered to your room and a cast member will bring them up. 

    Another great thing to keep in mind is there is also a grab and go section at Gasparilla Island Grill for smaller items and limited grocery items such as quarts of milk. I hope this helps in your planning.

    Have a magical trip!
