    Helloooo ALLLLLL!!

    So Heather and I are getting very excited now seeing how we are now under a month away.

    So my question to all of you is about the outlet malls. I understand that there are three disney outlet stores. Which is the best one in your opinion?. I will have a car as well

    Also is there better days to go then others

    Thank you

    They really are a catch as catch can. :yes: I've had some incredible bargains, and then wasted my time by even stopping.

    I'd say start at the one at Premium Outlets (nearest DTD). They tend to have a good selection. The other one that is worth checking out is the one further away on I Drive at Prime outlets.

    The one at Lake Buena Vista Outlets (not a true Disney outlet) is pretty much worthless in many respects. I think I've gotten maybe two things there ever.

    Best days to go? No, not really. Avoid the weekends I'd guess...

    We got some real bargains at the outlet at Premium in 2007 and can't wait to go back in August.

    The one at Prime wasn't open as they were still building the mall so we can't wait to try that one too.

    DizneyBlonde you are going to be amazed when you see what they've done to Prime!! I will say though that I didn't think there were too many bargains there. The prices were pretty high for "outlet" prices as far as I was concerned. Keep in mind that I've only been there twice since it opened though.

    Wow that is crazy! That must cost a ton to fly over here for Disney. But is the Dollar that bad for you to exchange. I know the CDN dollar is down right now!

    Yes it does cost a fortune to fly over especially with 2 teenagers in tow!

    The $ rate is awful for us at the moment considering we gor nearly $2 to the £ in 2007!

    Won't be doing nearly as much shopping on this trip!

    This is Heathers first trip to Disney! She loves piglet and he is the hardest to find out side the world let alone inside it. So I know she will be buying stuff anyways, but we will keep and eye on our spending. We are getting about .80 to the US Dollar and 6 months ago our dollar was doing better then theres

    Hi. We found the disney store at The Florida Mall to have some great bargains. Good Disney mugs were $5 each & daughter bought her friends some Disney cups with lids (nice for 7yr olds) at 3 or $10. I also noticed that they had good quality towels & I am sure these were also about $10.

    The Disney store at Lake Buena Vista was awful (in fact the whole of this mall was not really worth the taxi ride IMHO!!)

    The stalls at Premium & Prime were also good (if they have what you are looking for)

    Hope you have a brill holiday xx
