Just back and we stopped there on our "outlet mall" day. I had gift cards totalling $55, and was able to keep the billunder that for all four of us!

The easiest way to get there is to follow the signs on Disney property to the Down Town Disney area, go past allthe DTD hotels and exit at the lights by the crossroads. Be in the left turn lane, proceed straight and change to the right lane ASAP in about a half mile or so the Olive Garden will be on the right side.

We visit this Olive Garden on every trip. Leaving BWV, turn right from the parking lot. At the light, make a left(towards Dowtown Disney), and follow this past Downtown Disney(until it becomes Hotel Plaza Blvd.). You will eventually be looking directly across the street at the Crossroads shopping center. At this light, get in the left lane(I believe there is a lane that has arrows pointing left and straight, so get into this lane---the furthest right left-turning lane. Confused?) Olive garden will be on the right (at Palm Parkway) at the 2nd light past Crossroads. And the Winn Dixie is 3-4 lights past Crossroads, if you need groceries. :goodvibes

Instead of turning left at Crossroads (to go to OG), turn right. Get to the far left lane. Go under the I4 overpass to the next red light. Turn left onto Vineland Rd and make the next available left into the Golden Corral (and Bahama Breeze) parking lot. HTH.

FWIW, while not as close as the OG mentioned above, there is a particularly nice OG on International Drive in the vicinity of Pointe Orlando shopping area (on the other side of the street). This OG is fairly new, and probably the nicest OG I've ever been in!

there's also an olive garden and golden corral on route 192 not far from World Drive.
