Question Getting snacks and beverages delivered to hotel

I am going to Disney in a few weeks and ran across a website that delivers all types of snacks and beverages to hotels. It seems like a really good idea and a lot cheaper than the parks. Has anyone used orlandotripkit.com. Let me know. Thanks

I also decided on doing this..But I have decided to use gardengrochers.com..I asked of other experiences a while back from fellow PP folk's and everyone who replied says they have always had great success with them..I don't know about orlandotripkit.com but I am sure someone here has. Good Luck and have a Magical Trip!

We've used Garden Grocer as well and have been super happy. It is such hassle free option for snacks and water.

Thumbs up Thanks for the advice

I have heard good things abour garden grocer, but with orlandotripkit, I don't have to purchase full boxes or cases. Plus, there is no delivery charges on orders over $50. It seems like they are brand new. I think I am going to give them a shot.

Please post a review after you try them! I would be anxious to hear how it went for you.

for our upcoming trip in september we are ordering water from walmart.com and having that shipped to our resort. a 24 bottle case of great value water is only $3.48 and shipping is 97 cents. i have read on another message board of people ordering snacks from walmart and having them shipped with the water. we plan on buying sting cheese, beef jerky, lays stacks, and mini muffins. those are getting tossed in our luggage or carry on.

I looked at Tripkit and with 3 kids and an 18 day vacation, it seemed a bit pricey to me. From what I saw, it was vending machine prices.

I don't need a case of individual chip bags or anything like that, but it would be nice to get some fresh fruit and some lays stacks along with some beef jerky and trail mix. We are on the dining plan so I don't think we will need that much but I also don't want to spend a lot on the extras. Microwave popcorn is also a must.

I think I am going to check out WalMart.com.

I hear so many good things about GardenGrocer that we might just go with what we hear works.

We have always had cases of water and pop delivered. We usually order it from Office Depot. We give them the address of the resort it has always been waiting for us when we arrive. It it much cheaper than buying it at WDW.

I compared garden grocer and trip kit and the prices at garden grocer were not much cheaper. Plus they have a big delivery charge and fuel surcharge. Vending machine prices at disney are double and tripple these prices as well. We do not want fresh produce and like the variety. I just placed the order and will let everyone know how it goes.
