When we visit Disneyland, we stay at a WorldMark resort in Annaheim. The condos are only a few years old and we can walk, drive, or shuttle to Disneyland. The condos are equipped with a full kitchen which means we eat in for a lot of our meals. We save a ton of money on our meals and we have more control over what we are eating. We plan simple meals that everyone will enjoy, and we team up for meal preparation and cleaning so that it isn’t too much work for anyone.
The only downside to all of this is the actual grocery shopping. Sometimes it can be quite an adventure, but it does take time away from our vacation, and shopping in an unfamiliar store always seems to take twice as long and cost twice as much.
Joe discovered a brilliant solution to this problem on our last Disneyland trip, and we utilized it again this time. Safeway offers an on-line grocery service that delivers to our condo and it is so easy to use. We signed up for their service, selected our items, and paid for our groceries on-line. When we arrived at the condo, our groceries were waiting for us. We did not step one foot in the grocery store. It was amazing!
First time delivery is free and then $15 after that. I would pay twice that amount as it helps our vacation feel more like vacation and less like real life.
