    ...well, I guess your best suggestion for two, teenage girls who want to SHOP, SHOP, SHOP! They are each bringing a bit of their allotted "back to school" money and would love to spend a day doing a bit of shopping. Where then? Outlets? Mall at Millenia? What do you suggest and how much should I expect to pay in cab fare?

    I don't usually travel "outside the realm" so this will be a new "thing" for me :)

    Honestly? For something that holds the chance of being "different" and fun for ALL of you? I'd go with Mall at Millenia. It's high end, but fun, fun, fun and you are coming during a time of sales, so that might help. Great opportunities to eat too. :D

    Annnnnnd, you can walk to IKEA if you are desperate for a bargain or cup of meatballs. :D :D

    Cab fare? Eeeesh. Don't have a clue there. :sorry:

    both florida mall and mall at millenia about $45ish each way from Disney

    Mall at millenia the poshest and most fun to go to.. florida mall more varied and often better pricing but "just another mall" :)

    I had a feeling MaM would be the destination of choice :)

    So then, what manner of "food opportunities" are we talking, Tink? (You HAD to know that perked my ears right up :) )

    $100 in taxis roundtrip, eh? How far of a drive are we talking, Keith? And are there other options that I should be considering? Shuttles? Town Service? Or will they all be about the same?

    Thanks for all the help!!!

    Mall at Millenia for the Cheescake Factory :D

    The food court is quite nice as well, but we never get that far :lol:

    It would be cheaper to rent a car.

    Yes. That's quite true. But you know me...I couldn't find my way out of cardboard box.

    Just been perusing the shops online - looks like exactly what the girls would enjoy!

    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. :yes:

    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).

    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


    Fares here

    Ummmmm, I'd be really careful about riding the LYNX busses. :sorry: 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. :sorry:

    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!
