Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Can I get to a grocery store to buy water, snacks etc. so we don't have to spend money in vending machines. In 2004 water was $2.75 a bottle. We are spending plenty already. Thanks..

- Hi Jerry,
Well, the good news is that water is still about the same price, so inflation hasn't been much of an issue there. But the even better news is that you're welcome to purchase your own water, soda, and snacks for consumption at WDW. If you have access to a car, there are grocery stores, a Target, and a Walmart fairly near by. The front desk of your hotel would be happ to provide directions. You could also take a taxi to those destinations.
Another common solution is to have supplies delivered to your hotel. GardenGrocer.com is a popular service that will bring grocery store items to your resort. You can also get water delivered by turnerdrug.com.
Many guests choose to have food and beverage items shipped to their hotel. If you have Amazon Prime, it's often possible to get water delivered with no shipping charge.
And remember that you can get a cup of ice water free at any quick service dining location or food court. You don't have to pay for water at all if you don't need it to be in a plastic bottle.
Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if we can provide additional assistance.
