    We will be staying at WDW for 6 days/5 nights and have the deluxe dining plan there a place to buy groceries/beer/wine to have on hand for in our room?

    Hi Leslie,

    You can purcase a limited selection of items at your resort. However, I highly recommend Garden Grocer. You'll find their website online. They will deliver your order to be waiting at your resort for you. If you aren't there when it arrives, Bell Services will store the items for you and you can get it from them later. Garden Grocer currently charges a $12 delivery fee. However, you'll save a significant amount on cases of bottled water, wine, beer, etc. The convenience alone is worth this small fee.

    When looking at their site, you won't see alcohol. They do offer beer and wine as well as regular groceries (they just don't list it on their website). In fact, this is the case with pretty much any specific item that I am looking for but don't see on their website. What you will do first is place your order for your regular items. Then, when you get to the 3rd Step in the process (Check-Out), you will see a "Order Info: Special Instructions" section. You'll include a note about the additional items that you are interested in. For example, "How much is a 12-pack of beer"? The more specific the better, so include brands of beer and wine that you would like. Be sure to leave them with a phone number and email address so that they can contact you. An employee will be in touch with you soon (generally within a few days of placing your order in my experience). They will go over pricing with you at that time and will add your choices to your order. I suggest placing your order at least 5-7 days in advance of your arrival, because delivery times can fill up quickly.

    Have a wonderful vacation,
