For those of you who enjoy the convenience of using Instacart or Amazon Prime to deliver groceries and other last-minute necessities (lookin’ at you, phone chargers) to your Disney resort hotel room, you will now have to budget in an additional expense to the service.
According to Walt Disney World resorts will now charge a $6.00 handling fee (per order) for all in-room deliveries, as well as for any package or grocery holds received through the front desk.
The Mail Services tab on the Walt Disney World Resort website states the following:
For now, the only way to avoid incurring a fee is by meeting your delivery person or courier at the lobby or out front.
This change came into effect as of April 1st. Before then, packages received at the front desk would incur a $5 handling fee, but now, both packages and groceries will incur the $6 handling fee. Note that this is not per bag, but per order.
Will this affect your tendency to “order in” at your resort hotel, or do you feel that $6 is a fair fee, given the greater popularity of grocery and package delivery in recent years? Sound off in the comments below.
