Our family of 4 saved about $1000 the first week we used Garden Grocers (rather than go with the Disney family Meal Plan). We enjoyed breakfast in our room each morning, took snacks along to the parks to supplement our lunch, then used the money we saved to enjoy special dining experiences like the Rainforest Café. Garden Grocer delivered everything exactly as we ordered and on time. I wish I had gone on-line and placed my order a little sooner before the trip this year, because it would have been nice to have the food the first morning we arrived rather than the second day. I got the first open delivery slot I could book. The bellman at our hotel told us Grocery delivery is definitely growing in popularity. It worked well for our family, but if you are looking for character dining experiences (~$200 for a meal with Cinderella in the room, etc.), a package meal plan may be the cheapest way to do that. Our family is more interested in the rides and fireworks than elaborate meals.
The groceries, the convenience and the service we received were absolutely wonderful! The young man that delivered our groceries even put them in the fridge for me while I checked off the list. So you don't have to rent a car just to run to the grocery store or if you just want to relax and don't want to waste precious holiday time! The added bonus of being able to order the beer and wine was fantastic too! As seniors it's great not to have to haul all of that heavy stuff from the car either.
This service made our trip to Disney so easy! We loved having our park snacks delivered to our room!
