    We will be staying at Bay Lake Towers in May. What is the closest grocery to that location? How does a rideshare (Uber or Lyft) work in Disney World to leave the park and go to the grocery? Do you have any idea on the cost?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Mark! I would be happy to help answer your questions about using a rideshare to travel to a grocery store during your vacation. Using a rideshare to travel outside of Walt Disney World Resort is a good option and great alternative to renting a car. You can use one of the rideshare options in Walt Disney World just as you would anywhere else, but take note of the pickup locations when hiring a rideshare from the parks. I would recommend having a rideshare company pick you up directly from your resort as those pickup/drop-off locations are typically at the front of the resort and more convenient. From Bay Lake Towers at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, I would recommend that you travel to Publix Super Market at Lakeside Village Center for your grocery shopping. It is roughly a 10-minute drive and only 4 miles from Disney’s Contemporary Resort. I am unsure as to the exact cost of using a rideshare to and from the grocery store, but you should be able to see the cost prior to booking the transportation. 

    I highly recommend that you consider one of the grocery delivery options for Walt Disney World Resort, such as Garden Grocer, Amazon Now, or Instacart Grocery. You can place your order online, with different delivery fees and time constraints for each option (Garden Grocer requiring an order further in advance to avoid additional surcharges). Most of the grocery delivery options available charge a minimal fee or have no fee once a certain dollar amount has been reached on the order. You will simply use the address to your resort for the delivery and your items will be dropped off with Bell Services at your resort. For a small fee, Bell Services can then deliver those groceries directly to your resort studio or villa. You can also use the Disney Vacation Club Grocery Delivery Service prior to your arrival by printing, filling out, and faxing the order form for Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    I hope that this information helps you to prepare for your upcoming vacation in The Most Magical Place on Earth! Please stop back by if we can help answer any more of your vacation questions.
