    This is our first trip to DIsney and we are staying in a one bedroom suite at the Boardwalk Villa Resort Sept 20-27 with our 2 and 5 year old. Are there any close grocery stores we can get to easily? We aren't planning to rent a car.

    Hi Jennifer:

    There is no real grocery store located on Walt Disney World property, but there are a few grocery stores in the area. There is a Goodings and Winn-Dixie about 15 minutes away and a Publix about a 20 minute drive away. Since you don't have a car with you, you will need to take a taxi. However, personally speaking, without a car, I would not spend the money on taxi fare (nor spend vacation time at the grocery store). If you decide to take a taxi, your taxi driver or Resort will almost certainly know how to get to these markets.

    There are a couple of other options to consider. First, depending on what items you may need, you may be able to satisfy your food shopping needs on property. At your Resort, you can find a small selection of basic food items such as milk, eggs, canned goods, juice, bread, soda, etc., but the food selection is limited.

    A popular option is to arrange for a grocery delivery to your resort. Check out gardengrocer.com, an online grocery store that will deliver your order directly to your resort. You can even place an order before you leave for Disney World and arrange for the food to be delivered after you arrive at the Resort.

    Enjoy your vacation and happy shopping.
