We use WeGo Shop and have been very happy with their service. Being Canadian, we initially struggled with placing an order through them as we weren't familiar with all of the brands and the sizing. After a few trips, we figured things out and now I keep electronic versions of a variety of past shopping lists stored on my computer that I tweak before a trip. For example, I have shopping lists for when we stay in a studio and ones for staying in a one bedroom. I have lists for 4 people and lists for trips with 8 people. I have lists for 5 night stays and lists for 12 night stays. It's easy to pull up the list that most closely matches our upcoming trip and make adjustments prior to ordering.

I chose "other grocery service." That would be us. We almost always fly Southwest, so we pack a suitcase full of food. We freeze some of the items which helps keep things cool. We used the DVC service in the early days, but it seemed expensive with limited options. We almost used a service like Garden Grocer the last time. I'd like to try them the next time just to see how it goes.

Don't have an option for 'bring with us', which is what we do.

We have used We Go Shop. We have brought our own when driving in. we have brought our own in smaller quantity when flying in (in luggage). We have grabbed some stuff from the resort store and we have ordered off the resort pre-order form. We only did breakfast in our villa and like to have drinks and a few snacks but that's all.

We have tried all the ways and found what works best for us is: As of late we don't eat very much breakfast in our villa and just wait for a good lunch or we grab some sort of pastry in the parks. And sometimes I'll run down and grab stuff at resort store or CS for breakfast while DH and/or the kids are slowly getting up and ready.

I don't think we'll do any grocery orders again. We'll stick with bringing some stuff (granola bars and such) and winging it from there.

I'm such a miser and love that they will pick up the specific items I want.

They also have a $100 gift certificate for $75 on their website.

I checked resort store but typically we pack all non perishable items in one suitcase and check it. We basically pick up milk and fruit in the store or quick service

We fly in and prefer to rent a vehicle for the course of our stay. Given the expense of airfare and the timing difficulties around school schedules, we have to fit in all we can during our once-yearly trip. We like having the option of off-site dining, as well as the ease of coming and going throughout the day. We pick up our rental car from the airport and stop at a Publix on the way to the resort. We typically just pick up things needed for breakfast, light sandwiches, and snacks.

This year we are spending our 1st week at BLT, so for a change we are going without a car for this week. I was looking at garden grocer in order to get our groceries delivered to bell services so that they would be there when we arrive.

I was wondering if you can get alcohol delivered and stored at bell services with your groceries, or do you need to be there in person to sign for alcohol?

I love Wegoshop. I prefer being able to choose the brands I want. I also like only being charged the grocery store price and Amy does a great job of selecting the best value for any item I give her the freedom to do so. When we get our stuff it's like I did the shopping myself.

For our trips we bring a small suitcase with some snacks but we always order from WeGoShop. I love the fact that Amy will purchase items we ask for to a tee and if the store is running a sale on the items I ordered she brings the extras without question.

I like the fact that she has personally met us for drop-off and seeing her now is like seeing an old friend.

I tried doing an online order with Garden Grocer a couple of times and for what we ordered the selection was limited and the price was more than what I was willing to pay.

I will give GG a try for our next visit though. Things may have changed.
