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.

not sure the lines will slow down that soon. There are at least 5 other locations in the state so they seem to do ok down here. The one I lived near in Sunrise FL has probably been there for at least 40 years.

Culver’s has the best burgers of any fast food chain, better than 5 guys, better than in and out. The custard is also great, outside of a good mom&pop place (most of which are located in the Milwaukee metro area) you won’t find better. The curds and fries are serviceable, not bad, not amazing, but solid. Their chicken, pork and fish are also quite good, but I usually can’t not pick the burger.

'In defense of Culver's. My Wisconsinite daughter takes friends to Culver's to have the "food of her people" in Orlando and says it's just not as good as home, especially the curds. But they have a pretty good fish fry for a fast food place.

Looks like a winner at WDW.

And on the West Side in Disney Springs, and now in the Town Center.

Yeah…didn’t they try this before?

Fit2Run had a huge location at the touristy FL Mall in Orlando complete with oval running track inside the store. That lasted a few years before the placed closed.

I did not know there were 2 locations...The one on Little Palm is great! We always make a point of going there when we are up in Orlando

There's also a Portillo's on Palm Parkway (around 5 miles from Disney Springs).

Culver’s is just a “Meh” burger/ice cream joint. It will fit right in with Orlando’s “Food sprawl” New Jersey had more “taste cred” before it embraced 600 chipotles 😎
