Question Anyone know the cost of milk, etc. at resort stores?

Does anyone happen to know the approximate cost for a half gallon of milk at the store on Boardwalk? I'm also wondering about their bottled water, juice, a loaf of wheat bread and fruit. In the past, I've shipped down a food box, and have gone to the store with a rental car for the rest; but now with the added resort fee for packages and the fact that I'll only be fixing breakfasts, I'm re-thinking my options. TIA

I can't speak to the boardwalk however we stayed at POR last year and walked to goodings and took a cab back. Like you we were interested in just some breakfast items, snacks, and alcohol. When we looked at the prices when we came back my husband said it would have been about the same price to buy at the resort. What you have to remember is you don't get the same selection and if you have a picky eater this could be a problem.

For this trip (in 14 days!!!!) I priced renting a car and could get one for under $40 for the day. This is what I would have done but I was able to get a car for part of our trip with our airmiles. I priced from the disney car care center.

I don't know about POP, but a half gallon at WL last week was a little over $3. I hope this helps.

TOO MUCH!!!

Depending on how much you will need for your stay, you will want to consider going to the Hess Station across from DTD. We pick up our rental car 2 days into our stay, and I'll be hitting a grocery store that nite... we're not renting a fridge, but I'll just get a styrofoam cooler and keep the milk in there.

(FWIW, I think the goodings just outside of DTD closed... I don't know the address though to try and confirm it???)

ETA if you're trying to just do breakfast items then your best bet would probably be bussing over to DTD and going to the Hess... although depending on how long your stay is and how much you'll be buying a cab may be worth the money

Hey fellow Nebraskan!

What's the resort fee for packages you refer to? Is this only for things shipped from the outside?

I can't remember the exact prices (except beer and coolers were like $6 each) but there is a Hess station right across the street from the BW entrance. It took us about 20 minutes round trip to go in and get beer (for about $12 a 12 pack) and some other things. I don't remember them have a huge selection but were good for the basics. We also found that if we ate at the boardwalk bakery we could get milk for our drinks ( I think 2 come with breakfast).

Don't mean to hijack anyone's thread, but we are going in September with little ones, not renting a car-- can you get half gallons of milk on property? We are at Port Orleans, and will need whole milk and low fat. I was thinking I would have to use the Garden Grocer service, but I am now curious as to what is available on property?

To the OP, what is this resort fee for accepting packages you speak of.

As for supplies on property, It might actually be cheaper to get the stuff through garden grocer and have it delivered. Might even actually be cheaper than shipping down to resort from home.

You have several options:
Cost of items on Disney property...
Dasani Water 2.50 single bottle, 3.50 for 1.5 liter bottle
1/2 gallon of milk 2.95
Fruit is $1 a piece for whole fruit
Arnold's wheat bread $3.69

At resorts with Villas (DVC rooms), they have more variety for food options like lunch meat and frozen pizzas, etc. as well at the sundries shop.
There is a Hess Station at the end of the parking lot of Boardwalk that will have the items as well at a bit of a better price.
If you have a lot to order, Garden Grocer is a decent option and I think a lot better than paying to ship stuff to yourself.
If you already have a rental car, there is the option of going to Publix or Walmart, but I certainly wouldn't pay a rental car fee just to buy some food.

The PP is right though, if you are staying at the Boardwalk and paying hundreds a night/thousands for the trip, I'm not sure why you would worry about all the hassle to save MAYBE $50 at the most? Maybe downgrade to a moderate or value and have an extra $200 a day to blow on food costs?

And yes, you can get beer at the resort shops as well as the Hess Stations that are located next to Boardwalk, across from DTD, and at the exit of MK.

Hess Stations have delicious pizza btw too...$7.99 and a million times better than disney pizza at half the price. I just had some 4 days ago and I was shocked.

Hey Cathy, glad to see someone on the DIS from the Cornhusker state! The resort fee is relatively new, and only applies to "convention resorts". It would be charged if you are receiving a package that's been mailed to you. You can get more info in the Resorts forum sticky that deals with shipping packages.

jonesephus, there are numerous little markets/general stores located on Disney property and yes, you can get half gallons of milk and limited amounts of other grocery items. Hope you have a great trip!

Jeanieblue, thanks for posting some prices for me. I looked into Gardengrocer and with the $12 fee tacked on, I think I may as well just pick up what I'll need onsite this time around, since it's mainly breakfast stuff. FWIW, my dear sis is a DVC member and is treating me and my DS to a stay at BWV, so I'm not paying "thousands for the trip". Normally I've done more cooking in the villa on previous visits, but this time it will be different. I'm a planner, so I was just trying to gather some info and weigh my options before deciding how I'll handle this one little detail of the trip. Not a big deal.

Really appreciate the info, everyone. Thanks a bunch!
