    We are staying in a one bedroom villa at the Contemporary. Does it make sense to take a cab to a grocery store to get provisions? (There is a kitchen.) Where do I get a cab and what grocery store would I go to?

    Hi Judy

    Food, the Contemporary, and Disney are some of my favorite topics.

    The closest grocery store to Disney property that I know of is called Goodings. It is located just off Hotel Plaza Boulevard, near Downtown Disney. If you don't have a car with you, you will need to take a taxi to get to Goodings. However, personally speaking, without a car, I would not spend the money on taxi fare (nor spend vacation time at the grocery store). If you decide to take a taxi to Goodings, just call the front desk to arrange for a taxi. Often, you will find a number of taxis idling outside the Contemporary waiting for fares. Your taxi driver or resort will almost certainly know how to get to Goodings.

    There are a couple of other options to consider. First, depending on what items you need, you may be able to satisfy your food shopping needs right at the Contemporary. There is a shop within the Contemporary where you can find basic food items such as milk, eggs, canned goods, juice, bread, soda, etc. Another popular option is to arrange for a grocery delivery to your resort. Check out, an online grocery store that will deliver your order directly to your resort. You can even place an order before you leave for Disney World and arrange for the food to be delivered after you arrive at the Contemporary.

    Enjoy your vacation.
