Greetings fellow Mouse Fans!
I remember when my son was little, packing almost an entire suitcase with diapers, wipes, goldfish crackers and disposbale bibs. No more! Save on luggage fees and your sanity, and order the must-have items to be delivered to your resort for the day you check in. There are a couple of methods for doing this.
In my opinion, the easiest (but maybe not the cheapest) is to place an order with GardenGrocer.com. GardenGrocer.com serves the Central Florida area and many guests use them to order groceries and supplies for their stays. When you log on to the site, you will choose a time slot for your delivery – order early as time slots do go quickly! Ideally, you want to time your delivery for the same time as your arrival but this can be tough to do. You do not need to be present to accept delivery – bell services will store your food and refrigerate your cold items until you arrive. But they have limited space, so do try to time it carefully!
I have also heard of guests ordering supplies from www.amazon.com, such as diapers, etc. Obviously, this will not help if you need milk, etc. but Amazon's prices on baby and dry goods are cheaper than GardenGrocer's. Call your resort to get the correct address for delivery and the box will be waiting for you when you check in!
So that's it! My favorite tips for keeping it simple when traveling with young children. Bottom line – you are going to have your hands full no matter what! Less lugging means more free hands for hugging. The oldest magic in the world!
Be well and make magic wherever you go!
