If you enjoy smoothies they have a strawberry, banana, and cream one that is pretty delicious. I cannot comment on there hoagies or other foods as I'm allergic to wheat, but my husband occasionally gets one for lunch and seems to like them ok.

Have you never gotten a burger from McDonalds? It's pretty much the same thing; fast food. It's not exactly like buying a hot dog from 7-11; WaWa has a huge hot food/deli section with a long counter of sandwich toppings and workers who are there specifically to build your sandwiches. The guy who pumps your gas doesn't just hand you a hoagie.
Actually no we don't eat at McDonald's either LOL but McDonald's doesn't have a gas station attached either...regardless its not a place I would eat but that's my choice! I truly wish OP has a great time though.

I checked the online menu before your replies and these four items were the ones that caught my eye - interesting because I have been on the cruise line forum where there are pics of beautifully plated items with comments stating that they didn't taste good at all.

In our Central California town, there are two McDs attached to Chevron gas stations !

Anyway, even with DD working 50-60 hour work weeks, she still can't always afford a TS meal, well, unless I am treating and this will be a new and fun experience for us!

WaWa is more like Sheetz than 7-11. It's not gourmet but similar to mall food court quality vs gas station hot dogs

Okay, had to Google Sheetz to see what you meant!

Wait! Can somebody confirm that Wawa in Orlando carries Tastykakes?????? I grew up with them and lived in Philly for several years as a young adult, then relocated to the midwest. There are wonderful foods and locally produced snacks here, but no Tastykakes. If I could get a stash on a WDW trip, I might even be able to talk DH into a rental car.........

Having a peanut butter kandy kake right now!

Living in NE Philly, we grew up with Wawa on just about every corner. WAY better than a 7-11. No comparison, really. Awesome coffee and their breakfast sandwiches can't be beat. That said, I wouldn't make a special trip to eat there while down in WDW.

Wonder if they're gonna have the touch screens for ordering from the deli?...

Wawas are everywhere here! They are great to go if you're looking to grab a quick meal. Their food is very good, in my opinion. The hoagies are good - they have a new pesto spread that I really enjoy. I also really like the touch screens and how easy it is to customize your sandwich.

The soups are yummy too - I particularly like the chicken noodle and the Maryland crab. I'm a big fan of their milkshakes. And their fountain sodas are fun because they have the "flavor shots" - you can add a shot of vanilla, chocolate, raspberry, or cherry to your drink. We are big fans of Wawa here. It's our go-to when we need a quick meal, rather than going to McDonald's or something like that

I Googled Tastykake and they are sold at Publix, Winn-Dixie, Walmart, and even the Hilton on Sandlake Blvd. in the Orlando/Clermont area so I am thinking they will be at Wawa. There are now five Wawas open in the Orlando area and the Wawa website has a link directly for Florida residents!
