    We don't arrive in Orlando until just after midnight on a Friday night.

    1) Is the grocery store stop part of the Tiffany package, or is it up to the driver? I'm a little concerned that a driver working that late is ready to go home and not really wanting to make a 15 minute detour.

    2) I understand that Publix closes at 10:00 pm. If that's the case, is there another alternative to the Gooding's at the Crossroads that might be less expensive? Maybe a Goodings between the airport and WDW?

    Thanks,
    Duane

    We will be arriving at 11 PM. I asked about grocery stop with Tiffany. No problem - Goodings in open 24 hours. I said I wanted to stop at a cheaper store - Tiffany says if plane is on time we can try for the Albertsons that is between the airport and WDW. It closes as midnight. Otherwise, you are stuck with Goodings. Have you thought of bringing a big cooler already packed with what you want and just checking it with your other luggage? I have done this numerous times when going to a time-share by plane to take along meat, etc. Just duct tape the lid on very tight. I always take extra tape for trip home. Great place to pack breakable gifts - hard sides really protect well

    Would the WalMart on 192 be too far out of the way for the driver - I believe it is open 24 hours and is a 'super' WalMart with a decent grocery section.

    Just wanted to let you know, last year DH and I arrived into Orlando at 11pm and our driver from TTC had no problem getting us to a grocery store :) I don't remember where we went, but it wasn't terribly expensive (like Goodings :eek: )
