    Anna S. Would you reccomend using the Lynx to go to the store? I am traveling to wsw with a party of four including 9y/o princee and 19month princess. I would like to get snacks and such for the room or possibly baby needs without paying extra. thanks

    Hi, Steven!  I think the value in taking the Lynx bus for a grocery run comes down to how much value you put on your vacation time.  We tend to go for long weekends when we travel to Walt Disney World, and for my family, it would not be worth it to take the time to do the Lynx bus trip for food.  I would much rather pick stuff up at my resort, which will have the basic necessities, or take a quick taxi ride to a closer market than Lynx will get me to.

    Another option, especially for a stay where you'll need a lot of groceries, is to use Garden Grocer.  They will deliver right to your room for a no,inal fee, and you can order exactly what you want.

    If you have down time, and your family doesn't mind spending the time to do the bus route, then it is certainly the least expensive way to get the items you need.  It just isn't the easiest, and when I'm on vacation, I like to take the easy way out!

    Thanks so much for your question!
