Giraffes at Disney's Animal Kingdom

    Is there anyplace on the Disney World bus line to buy groceries, beer & wine? We will be staying at Kidani Village and will not have a car.

    Welcome to planDisney, Susan!

    Oh, my goodness, you are going to absolutely love calling Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village your home away from home as you visit Walt Disney World. This exquisite resort is one of my family's absolute favorites for oh so many reasons. I'm so excited for you!

    When we stay at Kidani Village, we often don't have a car either, so rely on several options to stock up on items to keep us satisfied at our vacation home. First, you can pick up beer, wine, iced tea, bottled water, etc, as well as some basic grocery staples in the shop right there at your resort. We'll pick up some items there, then combine them with goodies we bring home from restaurants each day. (Too full for dessert, but might want some later? We'll take ours to-go, please!)

    Because Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village is a Disney Vacation Club Resort, all rooms there are either Studios (that feature a kitchenette), or Villas (that) offer a full kitchen. At such resorts, shops have quite a few more grocery items to choose from, and Kidani Village's Johari Treasures is no exception. There, stock up on items Guests like to prepare in their Studios and Villas; you may be surprised at some of the great goodies you'll find during your stay. 

    In addition, local delivery services such as Garden Grocer enable you to go online and fill a cart with items you'd like to keep on hand during your vacation, delivering them right to your resort. 

    You can also ship shelf-stable supplies to yourself at the resort, which is really helpful when you have specific items that you like to have on hand most days. We'll send travel-ready items such as granola bars, crackers, fruit snacks, and sliced pepperoni. Once we've checked in, I'll pick up bread, bagels, peanut butter, jelly, danish, boxed donuts, various cheeses, some fresh fruit and juice, deli meats and cheese, chips, salsa, butter, milk, coffee creamer, eggs, and cream cheese. For my family, no visit to Walt Disney World is complete without enjoying a Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar, so if we have a Villa--which comes with a full kitchen--I'll include a few of those for late night, post-park treats. (I even make nachos in our Villa, made 100% from ingredients available at Johari Treasures. It's become a tradition! :-) )

    As you plan to put together your perfectly pixie-dusted visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth--groceries included--be sure to send additional questions our way, Susan. We love to help!
