    Great thread. I use Instacart at home and will save $30 versus the Garden Grocer using it for our trip to WDW this fall. Howver I am thinking about ordering Diapers from Amazon due to occasional stock issues with Instacart.

    Is is true that packages from AMAZON to Grand Floridian incur a fee? How much is that fee?

    Does anyone know if Prime Now will deliver an order with perishables to bell services at the All Star resorts? Does bell services have a fridge to keep things cool? I only have one perishable item in my order (milk), and I’m debating if I should order it or just get some milk at the food court when we arrive. Planning to place my order to be delivered the same morning we arrive.

    What is the recommendation for the FW Cabins? Do they come directly to your cabin or to the front desk?

    They deliver to Bell Services. Bell Services can then deliver to your cabin.

    We just used Walmart Grocery Delivery and it went quite well!! We are staying at Wilderness Lodge in a villa. They unloaded with Bell Services and we met them down in the lobby. We did have to sign for delivery with the walmart delivery person (not sure who he actually worked for).

    This thread is great...we hope to use Amazon Prime Now when we go next month. We are doing a split stay - 5 nights at pop, then 3 at poly. Whenever we have done split stays in the past, we have used bell services to take all of our things. But this time, I'm planning to have groceries. Will they move those too?

    Has anyone found a delivery service that will deliver Schofferhofer Beer? Publix sells it, but tonight when I was looking Instacart did not have it listed as an option.

    Thanks for your reply. I will definitely check the order before I submit it. Hoping this works out since we have never tried it before!

    We are arriving at MCO at 6:15 pm on a Sunday evening and I'm wondering if Amazon Prime Now will deliver on a Sun. evening? We have always used Garden Grocer, but I would like to try APN.

    Rather than wondering if, test on the website. See what the times/days are.

    Does anyone know if these places will deliver on holidays? We arrive on Thanksgiving day.

    Maybe Amazon Prime. But I wouldn't expect any fresh/perishable food on a holiday, unless supermarkets are open on Thanksgiving.

    Honestly I didn’t even think about that! Maybe I’ll just schedule it for the next day. We don’t NEED items the day we arrive.

    Most grocery store places are open at least Thanksgiving morning (having made many a last minute dash myself) so you should be okay if you place your order in the morning.

    I'm interested to see what other responses are here by the time we go in December. The things I am most looking for more experiences with are:

    1.Amazon Prime Now....anybody else having luck with alcohol being left at bell hop
    2.How many people are getting charged the $5 by the resort when the delivery happens
