We get a lot of people asking "Where can I buy a bottle of alcohol without paying an arm and a leg?" type questions so we decided to add a quick page with the answers.
So, you'd like a cocktail and don't feel like spending $8 apiece and you're further complicating things by refusing to pay $300 for the bottle of Kahlua from room service too, eh? (Seriously, that's the price at Gaylord Palms!!!)
Don't worry, PTTP's got your back. ABC Liquor is a large southern chain of liquor stores that has nearly unbeatable prices. That means if you see the ABC sign, you can be sure that you'll get a well stocked store and fair prices. Contrastingly, if you're anywhere near a theme park and you see a liquor store without the ABC sign, you can be just about positive you'll be paying way too much. One of only a handful of exceptions to this rule is the Wal-Mart Supercenter on 535, which has a good selection of beer and a small liquor store with fair prices. It's also worth mentioning that Wal-Mart is the closest grocery store to Disney and, like any Wal-Mart Supercenter, is a good place to pickup whatever else you might need, from an oil change to a new stroller to a flat screen TV, at a good price.
One more thing, liquor stores are open 7 days a week and generally open until 11pm. This might seem like common sense or may be completely blowing your mind depending on where you're from. Here's a dumb fact to go along with your trip to the liquor store; did you know liquor stores in Minnesota are mandated by law to be closed on Sundays and close at 9pm the other 6 days a week?
Disney Liquor Store Locations
Hours: 9am -10pm (11pm close on Fri & Sat)
Hours: Liquor Store closes at 10pm (full store open 24 hrs)
Not a liquor store, but if you are staying at any of the Boardwalk resorts, (Beach Club, Yacht Club, Swan, Dolphin, Boardwalk) and just want some beer or wine to take back to your room, stop inside the "Screendoor General Store". You'll be paying a premium for the convenience, but hey, sometimes that's ok.
If you're staying at the Swan or Dolphin, you have a new option available to you called Personal Pantry - the short of it - beer room service for a steal of a price!

ABC Fine Wine & Spirits Address:
While we don't recommend it for the price, there is a Walgreens across the street from Universal Orlando Resort that sells liquor, beer and wine. Their prices aren't completely unreasonable and sometimes convenience is more important than saving a buck or two. Located just north of Universal at the intersection of Kirkman Rd. & Vineland Rd.
5501 S. Kirkman Rd.
Orlando, FL 32819
Hours: Liquor Store closes at 11pm (full store open 24 hrs)
Alternate Option - Ship to Your Door
Total Wine & More liquor store in Orlando will ship liquor, beer or wine right to your door. They require an adult aged 21 or older to sign for the delivery or it'll be sent back. Be sure to read the shipping & delivery rules, but if you plan on staying in Orlando for a while, this may be a good option for you.
