Not walking distance, a short 5-10 minute drive though are plenty of cheap options. We went to Wal Mart and stocked up on breakfast items, snacks, and beverages.

"Building 7 is right by volcano bay entrance. 1,2,3 may be better for small kids."
"If walking to and from the shuttle is an issue, Building 5 is closest to the shuttle pick-up area."
"Do not accept room 8124. Loud noises."
"If you live in Florida regarding cost. Florida rates for residents can be found online."
