    Hi all we'll be going to the world of the mouse soon and need to keep a rented villa topped up on food for the extended family, we're going to try to avoid spending a fortune on meals at disney

    which of the many super markets are best out there? publix is expensive I think as is walgreens? should we just head for walmart or target?

    Most people use Walmart and they are cheaper for a lot of things you buy. Personally I prefer Publix for fresh food and vegetables as I think they have the best quality.

    We use Target a lot as well, they have a huge chioce and their quality is good.

    We never go to Walgreens as they are very expensive.

    We always use Publix but this is for convenience/location more than value for money

    I don't like Walmart for food at all - if I were just grocery shopping I would use Super Target or Publix - Whole Foods Market is lovely too if you want a more organic, fresh food shop.

    We also tend to use Publix and Walmart.

    I've heard Sweetbay is also nice but haven't tried it

    Another Publix customer here.
    Somehow, Walmarts [although ideal for most things] doesn`t feel "right" for food items IMHO.

    I think Publix is nice, but it's also expensive. I usually shop at either Walmart or Super Target.

    Lisa, I forgot about Whole Foods, it might be more expensive, but the food is lovely. Thanks for reminding me

    Have you ever been to Yalaha Bakery, it's quite a drive away, but it's worth it, the bakery is wonderful. It's a German bakery and they sell food, bread and cakes. Have a look yalaha bakery

    After looking at their site though it looks like they will be opening a shop in Orlando
