Grocery Delivery with Prime Now

Mom and Life Travel

When you’re traveling, sometimes you don’t have a car or don’t have time to grocery shop. An excellent way to save money, time and energy is to use a grocery delivery service. Grocery shopping isn’t my favorite hobby anyway, so I’m especially interested in skipping this while I’m on vacation. I also always want some basics and at the price I’m used to paying ($5 for a pack of water not 1 bottle). When you shop for your groceries this way, you can shop from the comfort of your beach chair or while you’re waiting to ride Flight of Passage and have water bottles back at your hotel waiting for you when you get there. You’re sold on this, right? Read on for the how-to.

My personal favorite grocery delivery service is Amazon Prime Now so that’s the one I’ll be explaining in this post. You can also use Shipt for delivery from stores like Publix and Target and there are also local small businesses that offer these services as well.

How to use Amazon Prime Now to have almost anything you could imagine needing delivered to you within a few hours

  1. Download the Prime Now app from the App Store
  2. Sign in using your Prime Account or sign up for one here:
  3. Type in the zip code of your hotel or home
  4. Place items in your cart from either Amazon or Whole Foods (can’t mix and match) that add up to at least $35 to get free delivery (you can add a tip but it’s not required)
  5. Pick out your delivery time – they offer 2 hour time slots from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  6. Enjoy your time with your family until your order comes!
  7. When your items are delivered, they’ll either be delivered to Bell Services at a hotel or to your door of your home. You should tip Bell Services, especially if they deliver to your hotel room. As of when I’m writing this I do not believe there are any additional delivery fees at Disney Resorts at least but check with your hotel.
  8. Enjoy your delivered items! Could be anything from veggie sushi from Whole Foods to an extra onesie from Amazon! Also, more practically, could be snacks and water for your Park Days or Beach Days!

I personally pretty much exclusively grocery shop this way now! I do occasionally go to the store just to grab something quickly or pick my own produce. And we still love the Farmer’s Market. Overall, it’s so much easier to place items in my virtual cart as I remember them, click check out when I’m ready and bring them in from my front door. Driving 30+ minutes in a car with a child who doesn’t like the car, buckling, unbuckling, trying to settle a bored baby or chase a toddler and hope we don’t break anything and ultimately buying things I don’t need and forgetting what I went to the store for anyway – I’ll pass! Grocery Delivery may very well be a mom’s best friend! What do you think?

Hope this helps you have a magical vacation!

Sounds like Prime Now could come in handy when going to Walt Disney World! Will have to look more into this when I visit WDW!

This is a great feature I’ll have to try. So far I’ve been only done order ahead and curb delivery options

This sounds great! I do well grocery shopping but it’s just me and my husband. When I have kids I’ll be looking for delivery service and amazon looks great!

Gratitude: A Journey
In honor of Thanksgiving, I'd like to share a little about my journey of gratitude. A long time ago, I used to think that gratitude was about finding things to be thankful for. It was about showing appreciation for what I had been given or afforded in life. Being thankful was like a simple prayer: thank you for my family, friends, house. On occasion, I was able to throw in something like being grateful for an accomplishment or recognition. It wasn't daily and it was usually only when I was told to think about it, like on Thanksgiving. But over the last few years, I've had a few things happen in my life that have rocked my world. As a foste ...
