  • Getting Grocery Delivery to Hotels near Disney as a Canadian

    Hello, I am hoping there is a solution to this! We are heading to disneyland from canada shortly and I am trying to get some groceries delivered to our hotel. All the usual places recommended (Vons, Walmart grocery...) do not allow for a credit card with a billing address outside of the USA to place an order since the only allow zip codes or list US states. Please tell me I'm not the only Canadian who has tried this! Is there a work around? I called all the stores I was trying to order from and they are all completely baffled at how to make this work.

    I can't promise this will work, but you might try buying a prepaid credit card at your local grocer. I bought an AmEx one to get a presale ticket for a concert I wanted to see one time, but I don't think they're tied to any zip code. You might be able to trick the system that way, but I'm not sure. Best of luck!

      I flagged this post. It should be in the Community Outpost. This has nothing to do with Disneyland.

          It’s a question about the Disneyland Resort asking for advice from people who had this issue while staying at the Disneyland Resort.

            Actually I agree with stovk. It's a question regarding "Delivery to Hotels near Disney". It has no relevance to Disneyland, Disney, or it's operations.

              We flew down to LA from San Francisco this last summer. With the costs of baggage and the risk of excessive weight from bringing food with us to the hotel, we tried Amazon's two hour food delivery. I'd say purchase a $50 or $100 Amazon gift card now and just have groceries delivered to your hotel. Your first order you get like $15 off, which evens out the price of having the delivery. Be sure to buy a flat or two of water—we did this. $5 for 24 Dasani waters is a huge cost saving measure.
              Don't forget the rules on Micechat! We need to work together to make sure this is the happiest place in cyberspace!

                I flagged your post as well as it has nothing to do with Disneyland and is completely unnecessary / off topic to the conversation. And also incorrect. The name of the Sub-Forum is "Disneyland Resort". Which can include the hotels in the vicinity of the park.

                Let the mods figure out where it belongs. By your standard, half of the threads in the "Disneyland Resort" Sub-Forum should be moved elsewhere. And practically all of them should be closed when they inevitably veer to conversations outside of Disneyland city limits.

                A new user is asking a valid question about an upcoming trip to the park that could lead to an informative discussion. Instead she gets flagged because there is a boulevard between Disneyland and where she is staying. What a shame.

                It's really sad to see how unwelcoming and unfriendly this community has become, especially to new users.

                  Actually there is a southern CA planning section in the Disneyland forum section if we want to be really technical about this. As far as the OP topic is concerned I believe you can buy a Visa or AMEX as suggested above and use Vons as a delivery. Try calling Vons for the actual answer though and explain your situation.

                      Check with the hotel that you are staying many have partnerships with grocery stores that will help with this.

                        It is relevant to someone who is planning to visit the Disneyland Resort.

                          There is a Walmart very close to the hotels that would be a short UBER or Taxi ride away if delivery becomes to cumbersome, we used this the last time we went down there. The Amazon idea is also a good alternative I have heard a number of people talk about this option with good results. Just double check with your Hotel as well since they may have a partnership they don't overtly advertise.


                          Side note, man this thread illustrates how nitpicky and unfriendly these boards have become over the past year or so. Someone was just asking a question related to the Resort, even if it is a little off topic wouldn't we all want everyone to have the best experience possible on vacation?

                            Hello! Fellow Canuck here ( BC ).
                            I've ordered groceries at least 3 times when staying in DL. I contacted my credit card provider and added the hotel address as a temporary address to my account. Alternatively you can use a 'fix' for converting a Canadian postal code to a US zip code by dropping the letters of your postal code and adding two zeroes at the end - this is a tip suggested by MasterCard for pay at the pump which requires a US zip - https://www.mastercard.ca/en-ca/cons...y-at-pump.html.
                            FYI I ordered through Safeway/Vons and I had my groceries delivered to the HOJO, the GCH and the DL Hotel. On one epic screw up I accidentally left my delivery address as the GCH when staying at the DL hotel and the lovely concierge arranged to move them between properties.
                            As recently as last month I had groceries delivered to a hotel in Waikiki ( again using Safeway ) and I used the postal/zip code fix and it worked fine.
