Albertson's is a large, full service grocery store. I like to go there because it is on the way, is right off the exit (you can see it from the highway), and there is a full liquor store next door

It is only a grocery store, so if you need to buy clothes or shoes or tires or other things not normally at a grocery store, they won't have them.

As a lifelong Florida and former 20+ year Kissimmee resident I feel I can answer some of this with a bit of knowledge. 417 from MCO is definitely the best way for a non local to get to WDW.

If someone took me that way, there would be a fight. That route would take 1.5 hours to get from MCO to WDW best case scenario.

As far as grocery stores, I would recommend finding the nearest Publix. I can think of 2 or 3 witihin a few miles of the maingate in either direction. Publix is way nicer than walmart could ever hope to be and you may find that they have more than 2 of the 374 cash registers staffed.

Thank you so much. I think a Publix would be more than fine. I will need to Google some addresses so my GPS heads me in the right direction out of MCO.
This will be our first time driving. We have always used Magical Express in the past . Should be an adventure!
