Do you have a favorite gas station? I sure do, and I’m happy to report that it will be much closer to Walt Disney World!

Gas Stations and Roadtrips

Have you ever been on a road trip and someone needs to use the restroom and someone is really hungry? Stopping at a rest stop or gas station can be daunting and an adventure. The cleanliness of the restrooms and the assortment of snacks and food items can be an issue.

Sometimes, I (Marisol) immediately walk out and head to another location because it is so dirty!

This is where Buc-ee’s comes in.

If you’ve never heard of this particular gas station, you are truly missing out on an experience in itself. Buc-ee’s is popular for its selection of snacks, spotless bathrooms, and over 100 gas pumps.

With a quick search on the internet, you will find just how popular this gas station is. People are known to travel great distances out of their way just to step inside the world of Buc-ee’s.

The gas station’s mascot, a beaver, is quite popular! The variety of general and regional based souvenirs, including apparel, and artwork dedicated to Buc-ee’s is worth the stop!

Buc-ee’s was founded in 1982 in Lake Jackson, Texas and now has 57 locations throughout the United States.

Recently, the company applied to rezone over 32 acres of land east of Interstate 75 and near Highway 326. This particular location is about an hour and a half from Walt Disney World.

Currently there are already two Buc-ee’s locations in Daytona Beach and St. Augustine, Florida. The Ocala location will be the first Buc-ee’s gas station off the I-75. I-75 takes you to the Turnpike which takes you to I-4 which takes you to the WDW property.

Are you looking forward to Buc-ee’s coming to Central Florida? Please make sure to share the article with a Buc-ee fan!


  1. I’ve never seen a Buc-ees so I’m kinda excited about it. I’ve heard a lot about them. I do love me a WaWa, too!

  2. I think it’s great. Ocala is the up and fast
    growing central location in Florida with the World Equestrian Hotel and now Buc-ees!

  3. Bucc-ees is a horrible abomination and we who live here don’t want it at all! What once was beautiful farm land will be turned into a corporate monstrosity ruining the character of our community.

  4. We need one in Polk County off I-4
    Lakeland area
    Plenty of space left
    But in the Polk County commisioners infinite wisdom, they passed an ordinance prohibiting anything more than 20 pumps
    Which totally eliminates Buc-Ees
    So, they reap what they sowed

  5. It actually is
    Ocala is considered to be Central Florida
    Not quite Lakeland central
    But close enough
    It is definitely not considered Northern Florida

  6. Need one south of Florida, fort Pierce area and one thing you’re not doing is just not right is letting truckers in . You should have more space so the trucker can stop in too. Not sleep but so they can enjoy Buc-ees too. I was at a Buc-ees and seen a trucker being turned away. Our truckers work long hours and I don’t think you should be turning them away.
    Another thing Buc-ees has just about anything you want, you have campers coming in and out all the time, so you should have propane for the campers.


  8. I live in Central Florida and I’m so excited to see another Buc-ee’s in our state! Now south Florida needs a Buc-ee’s too. :) Disney World is located directly off of Interstate 4.
