Is there a liquor store at Orlando airport?

I didnt want to have to pack bottles of liquor in my suitcase (in case they broke). We are taking Disney transportation to the pier and I am pretty sure they wont make a "booze" stop for us, so I was hoping there might be somewhere at the airport to purchase alcohol. I am not a lush...honest, I just want a bottle of Kahlua

Sorry...... no liquor store at MCO. The closest one, that I know of, is about 3 miles north of the airport.

I totally understand where you are coming from... Try calling shirley from the perfect gift.. I ordered a totebag with tequila rum and margarita mix in for my Inlaws cabin.. It was totally worth the expense since we know it will be there and if we can't get away from the hotel after check in to pick up wine for the cruise at least we have our hard alcohol taken care of.. =)

Shirley is a great idea! You can order pretty much anything and she'll package it up and get it to your stateroom!

What about the Hyatt MCO? Does the Hyatt have a shop that would sell liquor? Thanks.

We've stayed at the Hyatt several times, and I don't recall seeing any kind of shop in the hotel. With all of the gift shops, etc. in the airport, it probably wouldn't make sense to have a shop in the hotel.

Not within walking distance, that I've seen. There is an ABC liquor store a few miles south of the port, and the closest grocery store (which sells wine) is also a few miles away.

I think last summer my husband bought a bottle of kahlua and it was in a plastic bottle. If you can find it at home in plastic, that might be a good alternative. You won't have to worry about the bottle breaking. Or take a few nips just incase you do not get to a liquor store before you get to the ship. That should tide you over until you get to your first port.

My problem is that we like to purchase liquor in the ports to bring home. Now that you cannot carry it on the plan and are only allowed one suitcase under 50 lbs., what are we to do? I guess we are only going to be able to bring one bottle home per person. This only one bag per person rule stinks!!!
