    I always heard about the no-gum policy within the parks (never heard about surrounding stores). Something about keeping Main Street and the pathways clear of sticky dropped gum.

    Don't they go as far as to not even sell it in hotel gift shops? Maybe I'm just inventing that to go along with the no gum in the parks, but I seem to remember something like that.

    they also don't sell it at the airport for the same reason, so it's possible that no stores in the WDW. international drive area would carry gum. I would recommend that you bring your own or you are gonna be out of luck unless you travel into the city of orlando and then you can find it.

    This is nothing new in places with potential for cleaning issues. Portland (Oregon) airport has not sold gum for AT LEAST 30 years. I'm sure you'll be able to find gum in the places you'll be going to buy groceries (well, as sure as I can be without having gone grocery shopping in Orlando!)

    That would look an awful lot like a bomb wouldn't it? I keep picturing a huge wad of gum inside of a suitcase...I wonder if security would even let it through.

    Silly Stitch. We have plenty of gum.

    I know, I live here. There is no gum on Disney Property, Universal Property or at the Intl' Airport. Elsewhere you'll find it. Publix is our main grocery store chain here, and they always carry gum. There's also a nearbye wal-mart super center when you get here. That's where the cheap gum is.

    If you have ANY questions about living here, you know where to look. Though BPF should know more about the CP than me, yet she can def. tell you that I know a lot!

    If people in general were more considerate of others and dispose of their garbage properly, then we wouldn't have this dilemma.
