I'm making the move down to Orlando next week for school and have a few questions. I'm going to be at UCF's Rosen College near the OCCC. With that in mind, here are the questions.

1. Is there anyplace like a Whole Foods or Trader Joe's in the area. It appears that Goodings would be that type of place, but I've never been inside one and am not clear on what they offer. I'm basically looking for lots of pre-made stuff thats both fresh and frozen. I've grown to love a lot of the frozen stuff from TJ's and am disappointed they don't have any FL locations.

2. Where is the nearest cheap grocery store like an Aldi or Sav-A-Lot. If the budget gets tight I'll likely be spending a lot of time there.

3. Do any of the places near the OCCC offer any really good specials. I'd think that the area would be a great place to hunt for specials or coupons for places in those tour brochures that you can find pretty much everywhere.

I know this isn't the usual Chowhound thread, but thanks to anyone who can offer some help. I really don't much about Orlando outside the planning I've done for trips to WDW or Universal.
