    Hi guys,

    I am wondering if someone here can point out the best outlet for shopping? Hubby was telling me that there is an outlet near DTD is that Vineland Premium outlets?

    There are three in the general Orlando area. One is the Premium Outlets and that is closest to DTD. Just off Vineland, but you will need transport.

    The next is a bit beyond Premium, called Lake Buena Vista outlets. That one is kind of weird, with odd shops and isn't as popular as the other two.

    The largest is the old Beltz outlet, all redone now and called Prime Outlets. That's at the "end" of I drive (as you are moving away from Disney).

    It's HUGE, but honestly I don't like it much for that very reason.

    Be aware though, that other than the Disney shops (and if there is still the Universal shop) there really isn't a true outlet pricing system. Often you can get better merchandise from the full price stores when there is a sale.

    I *think* that the Lynx bus goes to the Prime outlet from Disney (its the one near to where the dixie stampede used to be - is that Prime or Premium?)

    tbh i found that my time was wasted going to the prime outlets, i wouldn't do it again. Like Think says it's often cheaper in the dept stores in the sale.

    Thanks guys, looks like we will stick to Florida Mall maybe a quick visit to another mall can't remember what it called to see the Cheese Cake factory as so many people here raving about it !

    Could we go there from Florida Mall and get taxi from the another mall to CSR?

    We went to Lake Buena Vista outlets last trip for the first time and quite liked it, mainly because you can park outside the shop/s you want to visit! We mainly used it for Rawlings (for DS's baseball equipment) and Converse (bargains!!) but there was quite a few other shops there too and easy to get around.
