    We are staying at the art of animation, is there a grocery store on that site? if not how far is the closest one?

    Hi Ashlie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Disney’s Art of Animation Resort in my opinion could possibly have the best theme in all of Walt Disney World! The biggest selling point for me however is the family suites. We are a family of five and I love that there is not only enough room for all of us without feeling cramped, but also that there is a kitchenette so that we can do some meals ourselves!

    While your resort hotel does have the Landscape of Flavors quick service dining area with cooler cases of food and drinks that can be purchased, it does not have an actual grocery store. There are some grocery stores located relatively close to the Walt Disney World Resort.  There are a couple of Publix grocery stores and one is located right near the Downtown Disney Area. There is also a Super Target located just a couple of blocks away from Publix that not only has the usual Target goodies but also loads of grocery options. These locations may be a 10-15 minute drive and will depend on traffic.

    I do have to recommend my ultimate favorite way to get groceries is through a delivery service called Garden Grocer. All that you have to do is go to their website, choose all of the items that you want (don’t forget a case of bottled water), put in your information and payment, and the items will be waiting for you when you arrive to your resort hotel. They even label the perishable items like milk, orange juice, yogurt, etc. and Bell Services will even keep the groceries cool until you are ready for them. Once your room is ready call Bell Services and they will hand deliver your order right to your room. In my opinion there is no better way to shop for groceries!

    I hope that I have helped to answer your questions! Please come back at any time; we love helping guests just like you!
