    So Staples is sold out of water bottles. seriously.:eek: Garden grocer wants me to make a minimum order fo $40, then adds a $12 delivery fee, so just to get water (that is all I want to order) it would cost $52, double what I would have paid at Staples.com.

    I want to order 3 cases of 24 water bottles. At this point I am thinking my only other options are
    1. Take a cab when we get to AKL to the nearest grocery store and buy the water ourselves. (wouldn't be able to do this til day after arrival and not the most romantic activity on a honeymoon)
    2. buy it here and ship it myself to Florida- any ideas on how much this would cost? I am guessing a TON based on weight.
    3. Buy our water one bottle at a time in WDW

    Any other suggestions? Does anyone think that staples might restock soon? I don't even know if at this point garden grocer will have times left to deliver, we arrive on the 8th of July!

    HELP!!!:scared1:

    Buy a couple of bottles at wdw and bring some of those tea or punch powder mix sticks( I dont know what you call them). Use the water out of the fountains and mix with the powder. Remember, you can always get a cup of ice and water from the counter services for free! I think, from what I have read, a taxi would cost around 20 dollars plus tip round trip to a store near buy. But you could also get some other supplies and pack lighter and leave more room for those honeymoon souvenirs!
    Have a great trip!
    And CONGRADS!:bride:

    we always forget to bring something anyway.

    Are you sure Staples is sold out? Not all brands are available in Florida. Try a different brand.
