    No, there is no grocery store at Downtown Disney. You will need a car to get to an actual grocery store.

    There is a small store at OKW that offers the basics, although the prices are higher than you'd pay at a grocery store (or even a convenience store). You can also have NetGrocer deliver items to the resort for you.

    There is a mini-mart at Hess gas station across from DownTown Disney ( "east side" / marketplace). Price-wise it's not too bad and while it has a good selection of essentials ( water, soda, milk, snacks, cereal, donuts,frozen items, etc. ) it's not a supermarket. Also, in addition to taking boat or bus to DTD & walking through its shopping area & parking lot you would need to then cross Buena Vista Drive to reach the mini-mart :scared: ( it's a wide, busy street & although there are traffic signals it may not be something you'd want to do carrying groceries).

    The closest supermarket to OKW is Gooding's - pass DTD area continuing onto Hotel Plaza Blvd. past DownTown Disney hotels, across Route 535 directly into Crossings shopping plaza. Its expensive compared to Publix or Winn-Dixie, which are further away, and you'd really need a car or take a cab there - too much of walk imho from DTD area & especially when making your return trip with groceries.

    Some will ship a package from home to their resort with non-perishable items they want for the trip & then just get the other items they need from store at OKW.

    Crafty Mouse's suggestion to use NetGrocer is a good idea :thumbsup2 and is probably easiest if you don't want to deal with cab fare & don't plan on having a car.

    Check out Gardengrocer.com or wegoshop. We just used GG and the service is great: order online, pick your delivery date with a 2 hour window; they call before going to the resort and will leave at the bell stand if you are not there.

    To me, much easier than the time and hassle of trying to go to the store without a car.
