When I first moved to Orlando, everyone told me I had to go to Goodings. And they were right, it was by far the best super market experience in the area. But still, it lacked something. That something was customers. The prices at Goodings were also the highest in the area.

One by one each location closed down for one reason or another. Even the brand new one that was the only location for Celebration. Now, word comes that the last location is behind on its rent and will likely be evicted soon.

Goodings at the Crossroads, which is right across the street from the Downtown Disney hotels, is the closest grocery store to Walt Disney World. When it closes that honor will go to the Publix near the Gaylord Palms and HWY-192. There’s also a Publics in the Williamsburg area, which is just past SeaWorld on the Central Florida Parkway. If you want to go a little further there area also a couple of nearby Super Walmarts.

When you visit Walt Disney World, do you visit a super market to stock up on supplies? What hints do you have that might help others who want to do the same.
