    We will be staying at The Riviera villas for the first week in July. What is the best solution for grocery shopping without a rental car?

    Hey there, hi there, Randy! Welcome to our most magical place!

    Back in the old days, planning to take advantage of the perks of a Deluxe Villas Resort - namely the ability to store food and prepare meals - used to be a bit of a challenge if you didn't have your own transportation. Thankfully, you can rest a little easier on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. We've got some excellent options!

    First, you can always utilize Instacart. In the Walt Disney World area, they do shop at Publix, Target, Walgreens, Costco, BJ's, and more. Another option is a local grocery delivery service, such as Garden Grocer. I've used them myself pretty extensively, but during a busy holiday time, you want to order as far ahead as you can. Their spots do fill up. 

    You can also use Shipt, Whole Foods, and Amazon Fresh. Non-perishable items can be shipped ahead of time using Amazon.

    Make sure you include on your shipment the name you are using on your hotel room. You can even have your items delivered when you aren't there. They will hold them at bell services at the resort, with the option to either pick them up or have them delivered to your room for a nominal charge. The exception here is if you are ordering something that would require a photo ID, such as alcohol or medications. You do need to be there to receive those.

    Have an absolutely amazing visit to Disney's Riviera Resort!
