    Where is a good place to purchase liquor near WDW?
    I will be staying off property @ a pool home in Oct.
    with 6 friends and a husband in tow. We will be staying right
    off of 192 around Old Lake Wilson Road. They do have
    liquor stores right? I am from Arkansas and we have
    what is called a "dry counties". The Orlando - Kissimmee
    area isn't dry is it? We never left the "Disney Bubble" when
    we were there in 2000 (stayed at Courtyard by Marriot in Downtown Disney) so I never saw any establishments
    the Disney busses didn't pass. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and I thank you in advance :D

    You can buy alcohol at any 7 eleven, Walgreens, or grocery store in Florida. (You have to love Florida for that fact alone!)
    So, I'm sure whereever you are staying you will be able to find a place close that sells alcohol.
    Good luck and have a great time!

    I thought the Supermarkets sold Liquor in FL. I was surprised to see Liquor in the gift shop at the All Star Sports.

    I'm not quite sure where it is that you will be staying... however, if you remember the Downtown Disney area, there are a bunch of stores on 535 that sell liquor.

    There's a Walgreens right next to the I-4 off ramp that sells liquor... it's right next to the WDW College Program housing, so you'll see lots of college kids there... lol...

    Just down the street from there, is an ABC Liquor Store. It's just past Downtown Disney, right in the new Winn-Dixie plaza.

    If you're near 192... there will be tons of signs for Liquor... so I wouldn't worry... it's not hard to find.

    Hrmmm... you know... for someone who doesn't drink, I sure know a lot of places to get it... lol

    Just go to a local Supermarket around your hotel. Supermarkets sell Liquor in Florida.

    We're staying near the intersection of 192 and 27 next year, I believe that there are many holiday houses in this area (don't know quite where yours is) but I'm sure they will have supermarkets of some description in the area.
    When you've been, please let me know

    Thanks so much for all the info. :D I wasn't sure if I could
    take a large bottle of rum as a carry-on so I'm relieved I
    won't have to try! Were actually staying at a pool home on
    Golden Pond Court, but the closest main road I can find on
    a map is (Old?)Lake Wilson Road. Up in Missouri they sell liquor
    in the Grocery store, but not her in Arkansas. It's an interesting phenomenon that takes some getting used too. Can't wait
    to tell my trip-mates. Thanks Again!

    My lush friend carried the biggest bottle of Crown Royal on the plane, and took an Apple Juice bottle full in the park each day.

    When they checked his bag, he said he was diabetic, and it was Apple Juice. And they let him through.


    CROWN! GROSS. ACK. GAG.

    Now... Absolute Vodka.....

    stay with a big chain liquor store like wallgreens or abc, those small"supermarket" souveneir dumps charge as much as 200-400% extra mark up. the good news is those places will usually sell it to you after 2:00 when they legally can't sell it anymore

    Wow, you guys are just full of useful information. The apple
    juice bottle suggestion is quite interesting. A diabetic huh? :D
    I am used to the no alcohol on Sunday, luckily we are flying in
    on Saturday night. :cool: I can remember here in Arkansas as a very little girl you could not buy anything, i.e. no shopping whatsoever on Sunday due to blue laws. Thanks again for all the info, I feel so informed now. :)

    Yes the grocery stores in Florida do sell hard Liqour. I know that Albertsons sells hard liqour. Also some of the new sams clubs down here have a liqour store, they sell like gallon bottles of crown royal.

    I usually bring liquor with me. Just a bottle of Jack. That why i can have my jack straight up or with coke. The resorts were so expensive. But you are on vacation.

    It must depend upon the county regulations...the groceries in Duval County DO NOT sell hard liquor.

    I come from Wisconsin....there would be mass riots if liquor stores were closed any day of the week :) Plus we have the cheapest prices in the country. (don't ask me why)

    Then I moved to minnesota...no alcohol sales on sunday? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
