At the heart
of Orlando's corridor of attractions, International Drive, The Mercado
is an exciting and inviting destination. This festive world marketplace
features free live entertainment nightly and a collection of unique shops,
fine restaurants, an international food court and attractions such as
Guinness World Records Experience and Titanic - The Exhibition.
Open every day from 10:00am through 10:00pm. Note that some of the bars
and restaurants are open later.
Although the food hall is covered, the walk-ways around The Mercado, and
especially the central arena where the live entertainments are performed
can become a sun-trap and are outdoors. It can get very hot during summer
(in particular) and we suggest that if you have young children in your
party, you visit in the early evening when it cools, or when the mall
opens in the morning, before it gets too hot.
Follow Highway 192 to the I-4 Eastbound. Travel to exit 29 (Sand Lake
Road). At the intersection off the exit, turn right. At the next intersection
turn right again onto International Drive. Approximately ½ mile
on your left is The Mercado.
Ample free parking is available to visitors at the Mercado Shopping Village,
just follow the signs on arrival.
