    taking Disney transportation from Cruise (Port Canaveral) to Animal Kingdom Lodge - is it possible for motor coach to stop at a regular grocery store outside of Disney to buy bottles of water (to save $!), and nut-free snacks for kids who have allergies?

    It sounds like you have an amazing trip planned with the Disney Cruise and then a stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge!

    Unfortunately, the Disney Cruise Line ground transportation service does not make any stops. The buses are on a very tight schedule to pick up guests at the port and them get them to the airport or WDW resorts.

    You may want to price out other transportation options that would allow you to make a grocery stop. I think you'll find that some of the options are not only convenient but also cost-effective.
