Places to Eat

  • We prefer Publix for grocery shopping (one opposite Greater Groves and another where the 192 joins the 27)
  • Others prefer Walmart which is down the 27 on the left at Cagan’s Crossing just before the turning off to the 192 (Even if you don’t buy food there its good for everyday clothes and holiday gifts)
  • Pizza Hut don’t deliver to the villa but Dominos do. Papa Johns do large pizzas which are nice
  • Panda Express, on 192, do a nice choice with takeout or eat in options. A more limited menu means its much better quality and flavour. Try the shrimp and walnut or the black Angus beef.
  • The Olive Garden, on the 192, is a chain of Italian restaurants. Nice main courses and you get salad or soup and breadsticks with it. Family friendly
  • Bob Evans, up the 27 near Clermont, down the 27 near the junction for the I4 and on the 192 near Disney. Good home cooking. Pot roasts and mash. They also have smaller portions for the over 55s!!
  • Cracker Barrel, on the 192 and down the 27 before the I4 junction. Again good home cooking. Lovely knick-knack shop on the way in. A bit of everything from rocking chairs to clothes to old fashioned candy. They also do really nice breakfasts and lunches. Try the blueberry pancakes.
  • Rainforest Cafe in Disney Springs is great with kids. Animatronics of all the forest animals. A fun evening. Book in advance to save queuing.
  • Steak houses are all along the 192. We have tried and enjoyed, The Outback, Longhorn and Texas Road House.
  • Although we haven’t been in, Chick-e-fils has an indoor play area, as does Burger King on Sand Lake Road (towards Florida Mall) just by International Drive
  • If you want to combine the cinema with a meal do go to AMC Cinema in Disney Springs. Good pub grub American style whilst you watch a film, all brought to your table. You sit in huge reclining armchairs.
  • If you fancy a nice treat out meal, perhaps adult only, try one of the 3 restaurants in Celebration. D’Antonios is Italian, Columbia is Columbian/Spanish and The Bohemian Hotel is American. Do try the cocktails here if nothing else.
  • Chilli’s – on the 27, less than half a mile from the villa. A good variety of reasonably priced food with plenty of salads and vegetables. Nice cocktails too!
