Save Some Dough By Buying or Bringing Groceries

In my previous post, I identified the grocery items that are sold in the Disney Vacation Club resort shops. But what I didn’t tell you was what the convenience of on-site resort grocery shopping will cost and what your alternatives might be.

Other Options for Groceries

In addition to buying groceries at your DVC resort hotel you can:

  • Use a car or taxi to shop at a nearby grocery or discount store. You can find a list of grocery stores near WDW in the Disney Food Blog Guide to Walt Disney World Dining e-Book.
  • Bring non-perishable items with you in a suitcase.
  • Purchase non-perishable grocery items at your local supermarket and mail them to yourself at your WDW resort hotel.

Answers to Your Questions About “The DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining” e-Book

I was thrilled by the great response to the announcement that The DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining e-Book is coming soon! There were lots of great ideas and suggestions, and we’re working overtime to make sure we can incorporate as many of them as possible into the e-Book!

As promised in Wednesday’s post, I’d like to take a moment to answer your questions and give a bit more information about about the upcoming guide:

How will The DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining e-Book be different from what I read in the Disney Food Blog every day?

As we like to say, a blog is never “finished.” The Disney Food Blog has been designed to cover an impressive amount of resource and reference information as well as Disney dining news and photo-filled reviews of every Disney restaurant. It will continue to grow daily, offering expansive information about everything that has to do with Disney dining.

But when you’re planning a Walt Disney World visit and need expert advice and insider tips, you don’t always want to read dining news and information about the other Disney parks around the world. We wrote The DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining e-Book as an organized manual that covers everything you need to know about planning your dining and maximizing your experience when you’re in Walt Disney World. The book focuses on start-to-finish planning and execution as well as plenty of little details for how to make your WDW dining experience as stress-free as possible and full of incredible memories.

I’m planning my first trip to Walt Disney World. Will this e-Book help?

Absolutely. The e-Book includes a 5-step guide for planning your dining in Walt Disney World, which will have you squared away in no time. Our goal with this section of the e-Book is to make your dining arrangements easy and stress-free!

I’ve been to Walt Disney World a lot. Why should I buy this?

There’s advice included in the e-Book that we haven’t seen published anywhere else. Plus, we’ve included sample dining itineraries, in-depth information about special events — like the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival — from a food-lover’s perspective, and hard-won details and advice for how to create even more memorable dining experiences in Walt Disney World. I’ve learned a lot while writing it, and I thought I knew everything there was to know! I’m sure that even Disney World veterans will find plenty inside to get their money’s worth.

Will you cover information about Walt Disney World dining with special diets, details about bars and lounges, dining with kids in WDW, and other in-depth topics?

The e-Book has extensive information on all of these topics and more! We even include [Read more…]
