The Screen Door General Store has some groceries. There is also a Hess station within walking distance that has a Mini Mart. Getting a little farther away, there's The Crossroads Just outside of Disney by Hotel Boulevard.

Hess is a quick walk through the BWI parking lot. It really is close if you just want bottles of water for your room.

I love this! People ask me all the time which resort is my favorite. I usually say "Poly! No wait, AKL! Oh wait, BWI!!!" So I should now reply that "I will never declare a favorite resort!!!"

What type of grocery items will you need? I "shopped" at both The Screen Door and the Hess station across the street from BWI twice in 2013, maybe I can let you know which would have what you're looking for. And as someone else said, the Hess station is actually a very quick walk from BWI - a case of bottled water was $7 vs. $18 at The Screen Door. You just need someone to carry it back if it's too heavy for you!

Hi Tara,

Yup my boyfriend and I will definitely be walking our happy buns over to get a case of water for a stay at the end of May.

Do you happen to know the hours that Hess is open?

We will be keeping some weird hours during SWW, getting up far to early than anyone should just to get in line our celebrity autograph passes.

Sweet!
I also didn't want to do a grocery delivery because we don't need that many things. Planning on bringing a lot with us but wanted to pick up things like milk and bottled water for cheaper than you'd get from Disney stores. Thanks for the heads up about this place!

Thanks for the prompt replies! Basically I'm looking for water, Powerade, bread, bananas and yogurt - maybe a few snacks? Sounds like I should be able to get all that at the Hess!

we were at Boardwalk a month ago and I was amazed that none of the Standard rooms have 2 beds! Just a queen and a sofa bed. I had requested 2 beds, and when we didn't get them we had to move over to the 'hotel' portion and PAY for the room rather than use points. very disappointed.

The only DVC studios that have 2 beds are at OKW. All others have 1 bed & a sofa bed. I wish they would have told you that when you made your request that it didn't exist, but as well all know, the phone CMs often don't have a clue about the resorts themselves.

(I will never declare a favorite between Poly, BWI and BC - they are all my favorites for different reasons and different trips!) In any event, there is a common thread here - everyone loves BWI! It's for adults and for kids. While overall, I do prefer SAB over the Luna Park pool, I think the slide at Luna Park is the best on WDW property. But please do not think BWI is just for adults - it's extremely family friendly!!!

Hi Pixarmom, thanks for bailing me out on the kids question.

I'm with you TaraPa, we own at BW and AKL, and after a trip last year, Poly unexpectedly rose to the top three as well. Really hard to pick a favorite, maybe BW by a very slight margin.
