Lol fair point...it comes down to not wanting to have to deal with all the stress that accompanies my innate ability to get lost in my own house. At least not in vacation ;-)
Sometimes it's just fun to have a chauffeur. :D
There is Bucco De Beppo, and McCormick and Schmicks, PF Changs, and any number of easy to walk to places outside the mall. TONS in fact.
It's a fairly congested area and you won't have trouble getting around on foot, even if you stay on the "mall side" of the street.
It's a miserable place to get in and out of, and that's another good reason to have the cabbie deal with it!
Oh, and there is a Godiva shop. :D (If you are a fan).
yeah it's nice just to let someone else do the driving on hols
I keep wanting to explore the food potential around MaM but it always seems a long way across the huge car park pf changs and cheesecake factory tend to keep me busy
mmmm cheesecake factory. You can get busses from opposite DTD Marketplace
For mall of milennia take the 50 to Premium Outlets schedule here
then then take bus 24 to Millenia. 24 runs only once per hour and stops quite early though. schedule here
There is a direct service to the Florida Mall schedule here
Ummmmm, I'd be really careful about riding the LYNX busses. Yes, they are public transport, but errrmmmmm... they are not inclusive as many other cities transport systems are, if you are following me?
I don't know as you'd have too much trouble going from the WDW area to Mall at Milennia, but I'd NEVER get on a bus headed for Florida Mall and the OBT.
Thanks for the tip :) doesn't sound as though I'd want to be on there alone with two teenage girls. Back to taxi :) although of course now the girls are saying, "But we can shop ANYTIME! Let's not spend our time on vacation at the mall!" So, they may completely change their mind between now and then (Imagine that...teenagers changing their minds. I swear I feel like a tennis ball somedays!)
Thanks for all the input an advice!
