    Hi Sue, thanks for advice on gratuities. Is there somewhere to purchase basic groceries like light snacks? We have our dining plan but probably won’t want or need to get everything from restaurants and kiosks! We’re staying in the Caribbean Resort.

    Hi again Ben!
    Welcome back to planDisney.

    Thank you for sending this question to me - I am very happy to help!

    You will find a shop at every Disney Resort hotel that, along with the usual clothing and souvenir merchandise, sells packaged snacks, such as crisps (potato chips!!), chocolate bars, individually wrapped small cakes, bread, fruit, etc.  At Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, you'll find all these at Calypso Trading Post.  Some of those items will qualify for a snack credit on your dining plan, or you can always pay cash for any food that you buy.   Centertown Market Grab & Go also sells smaller snack and bakery items, along with bottled drinks.  Don't forget your refillable mugs (that you receive with your dining plan) for the beverage station here, for all your free refills of fountain drinks, hot tea, coffee, and hot chocolate.

    I always place a grocery order to be delivered to my Disney Resort hotel on the day of my arrival.  I order a few snack items for my early starts when I don't have time to stop for breakfast anywhere, and also to have bottled water delivered to my room (saves me a lot of heavy lifting!).  I use Garden Grocer, but there are other companies that will deliver in a similar way, including Amazon.  It doesn't have to be a huge order, just a few snacks and drinks for the room.

    If you place an order, ensure you complete the delivery address with your name + "Guest arriving ... - insert your arrival date", then add the name and address of your Disney Resort hotel, which is Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, 1114 Cayman Way, Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830.

    On receipt of your order, Bell Services will store everything in a secure room, and any perishables will be refrigerated for you.  On arrival at your hotel, you can either collect the items from Bell Services or request that they bring them to your room.  You will have to be present in the room when they make a delivery, and please note that there will be a Resort fee of around $6.00 (subject to change) for any package, including groceries, received at the Front Desk for you.

    If you have any further questions, please come back to planDisney!
