the Orlando/Disney area you are never far away from a great
are plenty of malls catering for both bargain-hunters and
those who love designer shopping.
very well known and popular International Drive provides
an enormous variety of cheap designer outlets where you
can 'shop 'till you drop' or alternatively run out of money!!
you are visiting Florida from outside the USA, then please
be aware that the price on the ticket excludes sales tax,
which is added at the till.
you might like to think about buying that extra suitcase
at the mall while you're shopping - we've often had to
rush to the nearest local luggage store because we've bought
so much that we can't fit it all into our luggage!
When shopping at a mall in Orlando (as in any large city),
be sure not to leave valuables on show in the car. Lock all
valuables out of sight. If you're 'shop hopping' - make sure
that your purchases are locked away out of sight also. Finally,
always take the time to park as close to the shop or mall
as you can - for 2 reasons. The first is security - it's
always safer to be closer to the shops than further away.
The second is the weather - when it rains in Florida - it
comes fast and hard, and a perfect days shopping can easily
be ruined if you get soaked half way across a huge car park!
