We saved $60/day on our vacation by using Garden Grocer. We ordered breakfast cereals/milk/juice/protein shakes and healthy snacks for the theme parks for our entire family. Garden Grocer delivered it all to our Disney resort before we even checked in and called us twice to confirm that we received our order. Their customer service representative even called us immediately after our order to confirm they received it. Our food was put in the resort fridge and delivered to our door by the resort. Not only did we save money (breakfast and snacks are expensive!) but we saved valuable time by eating breakfast in our room so we could make it to the Disney & Universal theme parks before they opened and take advantage of that "golden hour" before the crowds get crazy in June. I don't understand why anyone would buy four $5 pretzels in the park instead of giving your kids their favorite snacks (e.g. Pirate Booty & Z Bars!) out of your own backpack. Garden Grocer is my favorite "Disney Hack" yet : )
Love this service!!
Garden Grocer provides a great service. Like many people traveling to Disney, I have young kids. Having breakfast food in the room (cereal/milk/juice/granola bars) in the morning, made getting out of the hotel and getting to the park much easier than having to wrangle kids to eat a restaurant, not to mention the money we didn't have to spend on breakfast. The other thing that was great for us was having snack bags of pretzels, popcorn, bottles of water, and fruit for the kids to snack on throughout the day. This saved us waiting in line for food, water, snacks (and those lines were often very, very long). The kids grazed all day and often ate pretzels, ice cream, and one "real" meal. Not having to have chicken fingers and french fries every time they were hungry was a great option. Disney doesn't object to you bringing your own food into the park. But, they do have to examine each bag that goes through the gates. If you're bringing a backpack anyway, adding food to it doesn't slow down your entry. If you have a stroller, it's even better to be able to throw all your goods in the bottom and not have to carry them! Sarah, Boston
