    Oh... in Texas that is our law. Figures lol! Actually, that may be for beer and wine only - no liquor at all sold on Sundays in stores, but you can buy alcoholic drinks in restaurants. Someone from Texas can correct me if I'm wrong.

    All resort gift shops have beer and wine, see this page for a few images (scroll down a bit) http://www.partythroughtheparks.com/coronado-springs/ also http://www.partythroughtheparks.com/old-key-west/

    Yeah when visiting some parts of Texas we noticed this. Texas has stricter laws on alcohol and liquor sales than some other states in the south. Some of northern Louisiana has some different local laws too on alcohol sales on Sundays etc. ;)

    I hope that's a joke... I would not suggest every doing that... We've made the unfortunate decision to try and bring liquids in out packed bag to only have said liquid end up everywhere except the container it started out it. Never under estimate the ability of the baggage handlers to cause things to open that shouldn't.... Biggest mistake ever was allowing out daughter to bring some sodas back on a trip because they didn't sell that soft drink where we live... I think out of the 12 cans she packed 4 managed to survive the trip... the rest just managed to soak into everything that was inside the bag... Her suitcase was actually dripping when it came up the conveyor belt at baggage claim.

    I fly from Michigan and pack 18 to 24 beers in different size coolers with freezer packs along with a couple bottles of liquor wrapped for gorilla luggage handlers and spread them out amongst the suitcases. I have never had a problem. There is nothing sweeter than getting back from the parks on day 1 and having the magic express luggage delivery already in your room, opening up your suitcase and having a ice cold beer or mixing a cocktail, not having to pay the outrageous price at the resorts. I fly southwest so we have 2 bags per person under the plane for free. I have also used the Hess gas station by the boardwalk, which is really handy if you are staying at Crescent lake resorts, especially Boardwalk.

    I never realized it was legal to fly with alcohol in your luggage. Maybe because this will be my first time flying since turning 21, I never really thought about it. Since we're only going for 3 nights and don't need much, I suppose we could try what you did. We are taking Southwest as well, from Connecticut. We're staying at Port Orleans, but arriving early in the morning and not entering the parks until the next day, so we have plenty of time to explore.

    No joke. Cans on the other hand are a no go. Plastic bottle with screw cap.

    And soon we'll be able to purchase whiskey at Publix without having to go to the Publix liquor store next door.

    I wonder if there are any convenience/ grocery stores in that shopping area across the street from Disney Springs - where the SunTrust is located. Not that I'd want to cross that street on foot....

    Not for much longer if the bill taking down the Liquor Wall in Florida passes in the Legislature...which it looks like it will.

    I've never tried to buy beer or wine before noon at Publix, but I believe, other than the Liquior Wall, all blue laws in Florida have been overturned.

    If I remember, the Publix at Lakeside (about 15 minutes from the GF) had a sign at the entrance saying they deliver.....

    Here's their number - call them when you arrive: (407) 876-0605

    Without a car and not willing to bring it with you, the resort stores do sell hard liquor in small bottle (not airplane bottles). The price wasn't outrageous for it compared to a beer. I bought a small bottle of rum for about $12-$15. In the liquor store, it would be about $10-$12. On the other hand, a beer is about $3 in the resort store and about $8 for an 8-pack at the gas station.

    This is probably the best option.
    There's another Speedway right in the middle of Property off World Drive at the car care center and rental area. Not easily reached by foot, though, but if you're staying at a Magic Kingdom resort an Uber ride there and back would be a lot quicker than taking a Disney bus to the Boardwalk (and the necessary bus connections to do that) and hoofing it.

    1000 Car Care drive.

    They have a decent beer selection and their prices aren't outrageous. I got some Kona Longboard there last September after dropping of my rented Jetta.

    I'll take your order and bring it to you for a small fee. I'll even wear Mickey Ears so it's more "magical" ;)

    I would suggest that you look at your resort gift shop/quick service to see what they get for a beer. If you are only looking at a 6 pack, the extra cost to just buy it at the resort won't be that much, and surely not worth the extra time.
