Closest Walmart to Airport?

This may have been answered in another post somewhere but, is there a Walmart close to the airport? or where is the closest Walmart to the airport? Anyone know the address or can give me directions?

I am traveling in a party of 8. Two of us are flying in 3 hours before the rest and we are getting 2 rental cars. The 2 flying in early want to go to Walmart, pick up our groceries for the week and a $35 car seat for our 2 year old that will be coming in on the later flight. Is it too difficult to navigate picking up the rental car and then getting to the Walmart and then BACK to the airport in 3 hours? A little advice or pointers here would be really appreciated! Thanks!

There are two 24-hour Walmart stores north of the airport. Either is about a 5-mile drive from the airport terminals.

Orlando Walmart Supercenter Store
5991 S Goldenrod Road
Orlando, FL 32822
Phone: (407) 382-8880

Orlando Walmart Store
3838 S Semoran Blvd
Orlando, FL 32822
Phone: (407) 277-4314

The Supercenter on S Goldenrod is slightly closer. And, as a Supercenter, it's bigger. It's not hard to get to. But you would want to use a GPS or print out Google Maps directions ahead of time.

The traditional Walmart on S Semoran is extremely east to find, which might be an advantage. Follow the signs to the north exit of the airport. At the intersection with the Beachline Expressway, keep going straight north on S Semoran Blvd (Florida 436) toward Orlando for about 4 miles (instead of getting on the expressway) until you see the Walmart on the left.

You'll have plenty of time with 3 hours.

After shopping, you can wait at the Orlando Airport cell phone lot (free parking as long as you stay with your car) until the others call you from baggage claim. You can then drive to the curb on the arrival level. (Be sure to have them tell you terminal A or B and the door number.) Download the brochure at http://www.orlandoairports.net/ops/p....htm#cellphone which has an airport map showing where the cell phone lot is and also where Florida 436 is in relationship to the terminals.
