Have been going to this store for 25 years. It’s not what it use to be, however the deli department is amazing! Same products as Publix’s (boars head) for a better price and the the service is fast and friendly! Vanessa, hope I have that right makes the best chicken salad I’ve ever had. They don’t always have it but if they do buy it you won’t be disappointed!

Convenient location sadly they price themselves far too high. We took an uber from here to wal mart and the cost of the ride and food was less than we would have paid for just the items we wanted from goodings alone.

The lady checking us out literally threw the eggs upside down and broke them. Who even does that?

Walked in today and saw the price on a 2 pack of water 8.99. Didn't pay attention when I grabbed a box of Oreos. After I paid I saw my receipt and it was 8.99 for Oreos. 8.99. Dang diggity. They got me. Will not return. Keep an eye out for prices at this place.

Nice that they are open late. Had stuff we needed. Cashier was nice. No issues.

It's a grocery store near a tourist destination, so it's going to be expensive. Good selection of the staples, though. They even had almond and coconut milk!

Just to complete the review simple. This place is gouging tourists! $8.99 for 24 pack of water! $4.99 for trail mix bars $5.79 for hazelnut coffee singles tasters choice Only benefit it is open till 2am Will not be back to Gooding's unless it is the last choice!

I believe this is the closest grocery store to the disney springs area - and due to this the pricing is not going to be that cheap. You can pick up a few things you may need for a quick breakfast in your hotel room instead of paying high hotel meal costs. It is definitely an older style inside, and it has carpeted floors (I noticed this and found it very strange).

Stopped here to stock up on some food while visiting Disney, bought some lunch meat, drinks, pb&j fixings. This grocery store looked sparce, but we figured we could make due, the meat and cheese we got ended up all being expired or a couple days from expiration, and the chocolate bars had worms in them. Definitely do not recommend

Gross place with unfriendly staff. The first six items I picked up to buy were all expired. The deli meats were contaminated or went bad as well (slimy stuff coating it). There seems to be no stock rotation. We ended up throwing out almost all of the $92 purchase due to being spoiled or smelling odd. Also the cashier would not say hi and just rolled her eyes when we approached the checkout because she had to put her phone down. Lastly, the prices were insanely high ($6 for a small jar of Skippy peanut butter).

Reminiscent of a 1990s shopping mall/grocery store....I needed a place to shop on Christmas morning for breakfast (yes, we were Disney tourists). I left wanting to bring the kids back to show them what 1994 looked like. You can tell this was a swanky place in its day. Before Publix. The decor and interior hasn't changed over the years. I suppose food was a little expensive but let's remember the convenience. Honestly, it's worth the visit. A little time capsule of slightly overpriced food. Have fub!

Great Walmart style Ma n Pa feeling store. A little bit of everything and some products that were new to me. Food, gifts, bakery and alcohol. ATM inside

They have lots of stuff but the prices are outrageous. I stopped in for a travel size bottle of hair spray and it was five times the cost elsewhere. You've got to be kidding!

The store looks like it's from the 80s, which is actually pretty cool. They have a good selection of products, but the prices are way too high compared to Target or Publix. I won't be doing my regular shopping here, but will stop by for a few things on my way home every once in a while.

3 stars is generous, it really deserves 2 from the perspective of the average customer. Visiting from the UK and staying in the nearby Radisson which is in walking distance. Had never heard of the chain before and after going in there did some research online.

Aww. I remember when Goodings was a swanky grocery store to shop. Sadly the time has passed and it's kind of a dated, nostalgic place. When I walked in all I heard was crickets. No one was there and the employees look anxious for something to do. It's now pretty much an overpriced place for tourists. It looks like it's open till 2 a.m. which is convenient, and it's clean but I wouldn't come here again unless I had to.

Easily accessible grocery with a variety of items in addition to food. The candy corner is a delight! We had excellent service at the checkout. Lake Buena Vista vacationers should check Gooding's out!

Haven't been to this store in years. The last time I was there most of the shelves were bare so I said I wouldn't waste my time. Hopefully they have improved.

1 star is too much for this place. I say this because of the help they have working there. My friend said 15 years ago, Goodings was THEE place to shop. He said it was so clean, the plaza itself was so wonderful and full of life, it was clean, well taken care of....but now....it's uhhhh,.. yeah, it's hood hahahaha! So you walk in and yeah, looks like a decent place. Prices? Expect them to be high...because fam, the prices are much higher than they should be. Sure at one time, this WAS the store to shop at for a nice experience. It's crazy how society can change things for the worst. Traffic is sooooooo congested in this plaza, and outside....DEAR GOD! I know it's heavily trafficked with tourists, but you can clearly see that not all are tourists. So, expect to be in line for traffic for a hot minute. Ok, let's walk back inside. You walk in, to the right, we have the produce, like most grocery stores lol. To the left, the cashiers. Stroll down through produce...get to the end, turn left and BAM! flashbacks to the 80s/90s....this grocery store is....CARPETED!!!!! Was I mad? Hell nah! I LIVE for seeing things from when I was a kid. I'm a very nostalgic kinda guy. Was this store clean?? Pfft! No. I still liked the flashback tho, hahaha! Store was probably spotless until the crew moved into the neighborhood, hahaha! That's the ONLY thing I liked about this store....the memories it gave me of stores I would shop in with mama when I was just a wee boy. Done shopping? Wanna go through, Linnells line? No, you don't. Linnell is mean, detached, horrible bagger when it comes to just the simplest of items... can't imagine a big order with him. The guy should nnnnnnnot NOT....NOT...be working with the public. He is HANDS DOWN the most miserable cashier I have ever come in contact with. I was a cashier at one time and I get it, some times the public can wear you down. But do you continue to be a massive dick to every. single. person...that you ring up? Hell no! You suck it up and do your job. You represent a business and when you're as awful as this guy, as intimidating as Linnell is, then you SHOULD. NOT. BE. A. CASHIER! you should NOT be the last person the customer sees. Goodings, you need to think about this guy and some of your other staff. I dunno, maybe you really don't care because of the busy intersection you're at and people will shop there as a result, but I have never felt so bad about going to a store than I did shopping at yours. I could explain him more, but it would be long and Yelp always cuts me off lol. If you see a really tall guy, up front, he has dreadies, shorter ones...there's another guy up there, has really long dreadies, he was nicer and I told him so. You'll see Linnell and you'll know exactly who I'm talking about. Avoid him. There may be better cashiers up there. Just a mean dude. Ok, guess that's it. Thanks for reading! I am usually not a fan of writing bad reviews, but I'm also not afraid to do so. People have a right to know where they're going and I absolutely love to give as accurate of a description of places I visit, as I can. That's what we are here for, right? To review businesses! Good luck to that guy. No idea why he's so angry at the world, but bro, take that shit home, don't bring it to work....ESPECIALLY with the amount of people who see you daily. Thanks again, Yelp fam! Cheers!!!

We stopped in on our way into Orlando on vacation for a few items. The frozen Jimmy Dean sandwiches we bought had mold on them. We assumed it was a fluke and didn't worry about it. We also bought wine, and when we went to drink it, it had turned into vinegar. If you live in the area or are vacationing in Orlando, avoid this store. Their prices are higher than Publix or Winn Dixie, but they also have a problem with their quality.

Complete scam. Extremely high prices, and problems with the quality. They are gouging Disney visitors. We bought a few bags of groceries and a few adult beverages. Accepted the price gouging as par for the course, but then found the frozen breakfast sandwiches we moldy (clearly hadn’t stayed frozen) and the bottle of wine was vinegar.

I didn't realize any Gooding's Supermarkets were around anymore. So I was surprised to see this as I drove up. My intention was to meet a friend in the parking lot before we headed off to Disney. So I decided why not make a pit stop for a least a water inside. The store itself was very clean and organized. It looks just like a normal grocery store with prepackaged meals, breads, produces, frozen goods, household items, alcohol.. you get the picture. There is also a large section of candy you can buy in bulk called the candy bar. I believe this was priced at $9.99/lb. The prices were OK. High on some things and a few 'deals' here and there. Sunscreen seemed average priced (it's what I was looked for!). Also, I had been in the market for a giant straw hat to shade away the sun. I found one here for $10. (later at Disney I found the same for $30). There were various non-Grocery items like Disney toys. But this store is located in a tourist area. All and all the store is a decent stop. Sure, it may not be the cheapest ever but there are some good finds if you look.

i had a good experience when i visited. it was basically me and 2 others in the store, not crowded at all. all the shelves were surprisingly stocked cuz i went during a week when a hurricane was coming. goodings was exactly what i thought it'd be, just a local grocery store for tourists to get last minute items. there's only really 2 complaints i have. 1. there's a sign that says 24 hours, but then on the door it says 7am-2am, and 2. on some items, the prices are high. i'm thinking since this is just a local, not well known grocery store so prices should be a little lower. not necessarily. i also forgot that it's near disney so business set prices higher and tax like crazy.

Love this place ... All the food, medical, adult beverage supplies one could ask for. They have souvenirs too! Open 24 hours is clutch and all of the staff are very friendly.

Everything about this place is a lie. It's says it is open 24 hours and it's only open 7am-2am and it also says it has a pharmacy when they really only sell over the counter medication. There is no pharmacy in there.

Yes, this is a supermarket in the center of a bunch of hotels, so the prices are high, but it's convenient and I visited several times during my Orlando stay. I love sugar free jello (yes, I do) and when I visited Gooding's, there was a great selection of jello and other snacks. I appreciated that the hours (24 hours) and that when the lines got long, immediately there was a manager who opened another check out. The second time I visited, I was looking for some apples. This is where I was let down. The produce -- specifically the fruit -- was pretty awful. The apples, pears, and other fruit was really quite sad, bruised, low quality.... This place is great for picking up some needed snacks but maybe produce and perishables should be left for another proper grocery store. Also, the lighting could be better. It's dim inside, but that's really because it's such an old style store. If I stayed in this area again, I would absolutely go to this store and get snacks.

The team of people working that Friday night were pleasant and professional and one lady took time to chat with us while we were waiting for a member of our party to come to front. Have everything you need for a tourist or if staying nearby in a hotel... found an official Star Wars cap there for 6.99 my son really liked and wore it the whole trip!

Gooding’s is a grocery store open 24/7 conveniently located in the plaza across from the entrance to the Disney Springs Resort area. They have nearly everything you would find at your local chain grocery store including wine and Disney memorabilia and souvenirs. The prices are higher than you’d pay back home, but are mostly due to its proximity to Disney. They also sell rain ponchos in case you need one.
June 2019 by Kim B.
Close, but a bit expensive. Extremely convenient if you don't want to leave your resort and go on a wild goose chase for products. Worth it just to pay a little more, and get back to Disney!
