Quite often we’re on the lookout for specific items, whether they be souvenirs or necessities. To help hunt down your treasures, here is a partial list of places to find some of the more commonly sought items:
Alcohol—You can buy a mixed drink, wine, or beer at any of the resorts or parks—even the Magic Kingdom serves beer and wine with meals at Be Our Guest, Tony's Town Square Restaurant, Liberty Tree Tavern, Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen, and Cinderella's Royal Table. You can also purchase bottled alcohol at most resort general stores and at Disney Springs.
Baby Needs—The baby care centers in the four major parks sell common baby items, such as diapers, wipes, and formula. Your resort’s gift shop stocks these items as well.
Groceries—Snacks are available at most of the resort stores, and a small selection of groceries is available at resorts with in-room cooking facilities. For more serious marketing, visit the Winn-Dixie half a mile north of the Crossroads Shopping Center. You may also want to try GardenGrocer.com (http://www.gardengrocer.com) for deliveries!
Gum—Gum is not sold on Disney property nor at the airport to avoid messes.
Lost Items—Lost and Found centers are located everywhere you go—generally near the front of the park or complex. Jennifer dropped a favorite scarf at Disney Springs and within 15 minutes she had recovered it at Lost and Found (much to her relief). You can also call Lost and Found at 407-824-4245. Lost and found items are generally kept at each park only until closing. After that, they are usually transferred to Central Lost and Found at the Transportation and Ticket Center. Remember to label everything!
Medicine—Order prescription and over-the-counter drugs through Turner Drugs at 407-828-8125 from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm. Deliveries (for a fee) are available between 9:00 am and 9:00 pm. (Insurance paperwork is available so you may file claims upon your return.) Tip: Check with your insurance company to see which pharmacies will accept your insurance. Over-the-counter medicine and bandages are kept under the counter at many Disney shops—ask a cast member. Aspirin and bandages are also available at no charge at the first-aid stations staffed by licensed medical personnel in each park and resort front desks.
Missing or Lost Persons—Should you become separated, immediately alert a cast member or go to Guest Relations. Teach kids how to recognize cast members by their white or blue nametags. A message system is available at Guest Relations to help coordinate things, even if you aren’t lost (yet). It’s a good idea to choose a meeting place each day in the event you are separated from your family or friends. You may also find it helpful to give each member of your party a two-way radio or cell phone to stay in touch with one another. We also suggest you take a digital photo of kids each morning—this will help you if a child is lost.
Money—ATMs (cash machines) are located in all the parks and resorts. See our park maps or Disney’s guidemaps for locations. The Walt Disney World Resort accepts American Express, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, JCB, Diner’s Club, traveler’s checks, cash, Disney Dollars and Gift Cards, and the Disney Dream Reward Dollars card (see page 10 for details on the Disney Rewards Visa card). Personal checks may be used to buy tickets or settle resort bills; checks can no longer be cashed unless it is a check from a Sun Trust bank. Travelers checks and some foreign currency may be cashed at the resort where you are staying up to $200 per day (no fee up to $100; fees apply for amounts over $100).
Rain Gear—If you didn’t bring an umbrella or poncho along, Disney will sell you one at virtually any shop. You may need to ask, but chances are they’ll have something. Tip: If your poncho rips, bring it back to any shop and they’ll replace it. Disney sells clear ponchos to make it easier to spot your companions in the rain.
