Default Garden grocer?

Has anyone ever used garden grocer? If so did you have your items delivered on arrival day? We land in Orlando at 8:30 pm and was wondering if our resort AKL will one: accept the delivery and two: have a place to hold refrigerated items.

Hi faberj! We have used them before at OKW and they were great! They called us to confirm arrival time before we even left for our trip and called us again upon the delivery of the groceries to our resort. It worked out beautifully - we were a little late than we anticipated getting to our resort on ME but our groceries were waiting for us with the bell hop in a refrigerator. We checked in and took our groceries up to our room. They will ask you for your anticipated arrival time and will try to time it out just right.

Good luck!

I have used them at Pop and at POFQ. They are worth every penny. Just a case of water and breakfast items or snacks will save you a ton.

I never had a problem with delivery. It was always in the main fridge behind the check in desk when I arrived. I will use them again without hesitiation.

Good luck!

We always use them and ask for a delivery two hours before we arrive, so it's waiting for us...always cold, always correct.

We are going for 10 days in October and plan on using Garden Grocer, I'm happy to hear their service is good because I was concerned on how it worked and such.

We've used them several times and once at AKL. They will drop off your groceries with bell services and call you to let you know that your items have been delivered. You can then ask bell services to deliver to your room or you can go get the stuff yourself. Bell services will have an area to keep refrigerated items and GG will mark bags that need to be kept cold. Easy peasy!
