Walgreens at Flamingo Crossings
Posted: Friday September 24, 2021 1:39pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Walgreens has opened its doors at Flamingo Crossings, the first of many new retail and dining locations to open in the coming months at the Disney planned shopping, dining, and hotel area.

The new Walgreens features a drive-through pharmacy and a dedicated liquor store.

In addition to the previously announced Flamingo Crossings tenants, other notable new additions to the lineup will include:

Hash House a Go Go
Lime Fresh Mexican Grill
Nick Filet
Ovation Bistro & Bar
Pita Mediterranean Street Food

Located just off State Road 429 and near to the Western Way entrance to Walt Disney World, Disney rebooted its 10 year old Flamingo Crossings development last year, with an announcement of new plans to bring 29 retail and restaurant buildings across 45 acres, to be developed in three phases.

In addition to serving guests of Walt Disney World, it will also be conveniently located to serve the recently opened College Program housing complex at Flamingo Crossings Village. College Program Cast Members are expected to begin arriving again in June after more than a year of the program being suspended due to the pandemic.

I know my local one would benefit from moving the operation and not telling the staff where

Does anybody know if a Perkins is being sited here? The staff that worked at the one in Crossroads seemed to think they were being relocated to a new Perkins.

Love this - but we all have to remember that the only way to GET there, and back, is TAXI-UBER-DRIVE. No WDW transportation :(. DW & I now know where a solid pharmacy is, in the event we need one, and can deal with TAXI-UBER. Not sure others can?

The Fried Chicken Eggs Benedict is heaven.

Flex store. Had the pleasure of opening one in the Tallahassee market. It’s gonna cater specifically to area it’s in. I’d imagine lots of grab and go snacks, plenty of HBA and OTC and of course a Disney merch section.

The people at HHAGG are great. I will point out that some of their dishes are not what you think you're ordering. For example, I ordered the Chicken Pot Pie; we all know what a Chicken Pot Pie is, right? Nice flaky crust surrounding chicken and veggies in a creamy sauce in the center, right? Not at HHAGG. From a review I wrote once: "It's a big bowl, topped with a "Sombrero" of a round flatbread, and the filling poured into the middle of the bread so it gets soggy and sinks down to fill about half the bowl. Now that filling is delicious ... But this isn't a pie at all, no crust, no flaky pastry dough at all." Brannon R from HHAGG wrote me to say "This is our take on the famous meal, and we're proud to be doing it our own unique way." IOW, it may be good, but don't expect a "pie" in the HHAGG chicken pot pie and you'll be fine.

Hash House a Go Go is a cool place.

The Disney housing looks very modern- they did a good job. The shopping plaza has some really good tenants signed on-I think it will(hope) have a Disney feel to it. The Target is very small -like other posters have said.(Super Target 5-10 minutes away) Im excited to see the finished product
