Where To Buy Groceries During Your DVC Villa Stay

Grocery shopping

A trip to the happiest place on earth does come with a list of “must do’s” before you can enjoy your vacation, including a trip to the grocery store. Maybe you are staying at a Disney Vacation Club villa with kitchen amenities? Are you trying to save money on snacks, water, and vacation essentials? Here’s a list of grocery stores and shopping locations to choose from to purchase the items you need during your DVC resort stay!

Of course, you can always place an online grocery order to save time and get groceries delivered right to your resort. There are many benefits to online grocery shopping and it is also helpful if you do not have your own vehicle.

However if you would like to shop on your own or avoid the additional fees that come with online orders, here is the best list of groceries that fit everyone’s needs. This list also is a short distance from the Walt Disney Property as well as neighboring theme parks, even if you use ride-sharing or your own vehicle.

This Walmart is offers both general merchandise as well as a full grocery store. About 15 minutes away from Disney’s Riviera Resort, this is the closest Walmart to Walt Disney World, which means it’s going to be very popular.

Publix Super Market at Water Tower Shoppes


29 Blake Blvd, Celebration, FL 34747

Who wants a Publix chicken tender sub while grocery shopping? Located in Celebration, this Publix is 13 minutes away from Disney’s Boardwalk Villas. Publix offers a wide variety of groceries meeting everyone’s dietary needs. Nearby Publix you can also find a CVS, Walgreen’s, and a UPS store.

Costco Wholesale


4696 Gardens Park Blvd, Orlando, FL 32839

This is probably the furthest option if you are looking to shop at a Costco, as this is the closest Costco to Walt Disney World. To save driving time, if you plan on shopping at this Costco and are driving to Walt Disney World from I-4 East or the Orlando International Airport, go to Costco first before heading to your final Walt Disney destination.

Walmart Supercenter


8990 Turkey Lake Rd, Orlando, FL 32819

I listed this Walmart Supercenter because it’s a great central location between Walt Disney World (20 minute drive), Universal Orlando (15 minute drive), and Sea World (7 minute drive). Another source for your grocery needs as well as getting low-cost souvenirs from your favorite theme park destinations.
