    do you ALWAYS gotta eat out ? or can you cook at home ?
    like when do you even have time to go to a super market ? lol

    All of the apartments have kitchens so you can cook whatever you want when you're not working and pack your lunch so you don't have to buy it at work.

    1. Of course not. I think many people think where we are living is like dorms, but they are real apartments fully furnished with pots and pans and silverware to cook all you want. I rarely ate out, and the only times was when I didn't have time to pack my lunch before and I ate at the cafeteria in the breakroom.
    2. There is a grocery store named Publix within walking distance of Chatham/ Patterson/ Commons. Its a wonderful neat clean store and I HIGHLY recommend it over Walmart.
    3. WalMart however is open 24/7 so if it's later at night or early morning you could go there. A bus ( or car) is needed to get there.
    4. Calories don't have to be a problem. I'd pack real healthy lunches when I was down, lots of fruits and veggies. Also, depending on your role, you could lose a lot of weight and gain a lot of muscle. You'd be surprised to see how active you get when working.
    What is your role anyway?

    There is also a store called Cast Connection for Disney Cast Members with TONS of fresh fruit and veggies, milk, eggs, cheese, yogurt, cereal, pasta, rice, bread, etc. It's all really cheap and actually good.

    Cast Connection is located behind the Magic Kingdom Park, and is easily accessible via Disney Internships & Programs transportation.
