We're arriving at the Fort tomorrow (can't wait!) and are trying to figure out if we should stop at Publix on the way in or not. I know there is a 'trading post' type place at the Fort. We need the following:
- beer (like cans to keep in our cabin)
- wine, maybe
- bananas and/or apples
- granola bars
- some forgotten toiletries
Is it worth a special trip to Publix (which seems out of the way when we're already anxious to get to the Fort!) or can we get these items on property?

OMG stop at the grocery store!
A 6-pack of Bud Light is $15 at the Meadow TP.
If you find yourself wanting to go off-property, there are a few Hess gas stations on property (by DTD, DHS, MK parking lot) that sell a few grocery items at reasonable prices. But I don't shop at the TPs unless it's ONE item and I need it NOW and I'm going home TOMORROW.

We always stop at the Super Walmart over near Buena Vista. We get wine, soda, water and whatever food we want for the cabin. The trading post is so expensive we try not to go there unless we really, really have to. Have fun....
