    We want a small grocery delivery but need some beer as well. Which delivery services deliver beer ? I would like one with a narrow delivery window so I don't have to wait at the resort too long. Any good or bad experiences?

    I use Garden Grocer because you don't need to be present for beer and wine delivery. You just fax them your license beforehand and they'll leave it with bell services.

    We also use Garden Grocer. I scanned and emailed a copy of my license. Uber or Lyft to the nearest grocery is an option too and you don't pay any delivery fees.

    I just finished ordering from garden grocer for the 3rd or 4th time. When you put the beer in the cart it will give you instructions to email or fax a photo id. However when I confirmed my order I asked for the instructions (couldn't remember by then !) and they said bell services will take care of it when they deliver the order.

    I use Garden Grocer on every trip. I faxed them my license my first time and it doesn't ask me any longer. They have a decent beer selection as well.

    Just an FYI on the Garden Grocer beer, it is delivered warm, if that matters. But it's probably the easiest way to get beer delivered.

    Another Garden Grocer fan here. We faxed a drivers license YEARS ago on our first order and they just keep it on file. Great customer service. You can also request items that are not listed on their website and they will shop for them. Over the years we have ordered pool noodles, sand buckets and shovels, specific wines, yogurts, etc. and they are always happy to find the items and it is just billed separately from the main order.
     
    Hopefully and eeyoresmom like this.

    Another who used GG for beer and wine delivery.
    Also shipped a 12 pack of cans down once (we can mail stuff from work for no cost)

    Which is good actually. Better than cold beer getting warm while in transport and then getting cold again.

    Of course, then you pay Uber/Lyft fees, which is likely about the same. But, you get to do your own shopping

    We always use Garden Grocer. We also always order a styrofoam cooler from them to add ice from the hotel ice machine. That way it frees up the hotel refrigerator for other items. Nothing better than an ice cold beer after a hot day at the park! :drinking1

    Yeah I rather have it warm. When I'm staying in a standard room or studio I can't fit all of the beer in the fridge at once.

    I do the same thing and just leave the cooler at the resort when I'm done. It works out nicely.

    It's more of a don't go expecting a cold beer on arrival day if you get to the hotel late warning.

    @msjprincess I don't know how we fit the amount of beer we did in that fridge...but we did. And we totally over-ordered.

    Anyone know, is Garden Grocer the only option for beer/wine delivery now? We went with Safeway last year because their prices were much more reasonable. (We did have to be present for delivery, but that didn't bother us.) Someone on these boards mentioned once that Safeway no longer delivers to Disney resorts? :(

    No more Safeway delivery, we now use Publix/Instacart. I've had deliveries in as little as an hour from the time I ordered. They offer different delivery time options and prices. If it's your first delivery with them I believe it's free.

    The gas stations just outside the magic Kingdom parking lot and over by Hollywood Studios and I think boardwalk (also one by Disney springs) sell beer at real world prices

    OP here. Gardengrocer is out. $2.79 for one green pepper! Besides an uber do I have any options for delivery, even if I have to be present?
