    We have purchased the Basic Dining Plan and are not heavy breakfast eaters. Is there anything around WDW, like a convenience store, where we can purchase cereal, milk, bread - things of that nature?

    Hi Amy,

    There are a few large pharmacy chain stores right outside of Downtown Disney.  You would be able to get all the items you mentioned.  If you are renting a car it makes sense to stop by one and stock up on a few things.  If you are not renting a car, you have a few options:

    1) Get a cab from you resort to bring to the store.  The cost will depend on which resort you are staying at.  You should take into consideration the cost of a round trip cab ride plus having to pay the meter while you shop.  I believe it would at least $20 if not more.

    2) You could skip using the Magical Express when you first arrive and take a cab instead.  The advantages of this would be that you could ask the cab driver to stop at the convenience store.  You also would have all your bags as soon as you check it.  You won't have to wait while the Magical Express makes resort stops before your resort.  The biggest disadvantage is that you would have to pay for the cab instead of using the free service provided by WDW.

    3) Do an internet search for grocery delivery services for disney resorts.  There are companies in the Orlando area that deliver groceries to the WDW resorts.  I have not personally used any of these services and none are endorsed by WDW, but they might be worth looking into.

    4)I think you may be surprised my what your resort has to offer.  Many do have a small selection of dry goods and all of them have a grab and go section.  Here you can use your snack credits to buy a single serve bowl of cereal, a pint of milk, a frozen peanut butter and jelly, a bagel and cream cheese, muffins, etc.
