    Hmmmm, I think there is a Best Buy near Millenia Mall. That would give you quite a bit in that area; Millenia, the shops across the road, Ikea and (if I'm right) Best Buy.

    Maybe someone who shops there more often can confirm?

    Never seen a bestbuy but then I'm a tourist and only see what the taxi goes past. There was a circuit city but that's closed I believe

    Yep. You are right. That's what I'm remembering. I don't get down there often.

    OK, so no Best Buy there. I know there is one at Winter Garden Village, but that's north of Disney and I don't honestly think worth the price of a taxi.

    There are other shops there, and places to eat; it's great for locals, and those who drive.

    What else is at Winter garden village Tink? We'd really like something more relaxed that that best buy near the mall sometimes

    There are clothing shops, "other sorts" (Kirkland, Home Place, Lowe's, that sort of thing). Barnes and Noble, Verizon... shoe shops, several different types of dining (from McDonald's to a lovely Japanese place, to Bone Fish, to Long Horn (across the way)) things like that.

    Target. Staples. Ummm...Ross, Old Navy. Not much in the electronics department other than the Best Buy. Oh, and a Sports Authority is there too...

    Here's a link to the site for the shopping area. Keep in mind that it encompasses two sides of the four lane highway. It's easy enough to cross though.

    There is definitely enough to keep you busy for awhile. It's just that there isn't much else around other than this shopping area... (residential is what I'm saying).

    Wave if you go by. :D We're about three miles from Winter Garden Village.
