    We usually go the the Florida Mall and Mall at Millenia a few times whilst we are there and also to Prime, although they seem to have got more and more expensive over the years.

    Are we the only crazy people that spend time at the shops or are there others like us :lol:

    We shop at Disney/parks all the time. It's always fun to see some of the new items they have each season. We always make at least one trip to DTD. It used to be a great place to get away from the crowds but not so much any more.

    As a US resident the Malls are a no-no unless there is something that I absolutely need.

    I didn't get to the Mall at Millenia, but I did think the Florida Mall was a bit pants.. it felt a bit like an outlet?

    The outlet mall was a 2 minute bus ride from my apartment and a walk from my friend's apartment so we used to go there quite a lot just to have something to eat in the food court (subway etc) or pick up the odd item of clothing.

    Like John said as someone who lives in the US I don't go to the malls or stores while on vacation unless we absolutely need something.

    It is so much cheaper in the US for people from the UK, which is why you will hear that a lot of people go shopping. We can pay in £s sometimes more than what you pay in $s, that's why it's called rip off britain :lol:

    I'm generally not a mall person at all. However, like you, Wendy, I'll for the Cheesecake Factory!

    I've specifically gone to the Florida Mall twice. Once was to go to Build a Bear to get a stuffed alligator that was only available there. The other time was to take my mom to the M&M store. She's now been to all 3 in the US

    I've been to Mall of Millenia once so we could meet a cousin for lunch.

    Other than that I don't go to the malls in general. I do go to the outlets.

    If we are there two weeks or under then we just shop in the parks/Downtown Disney. More than two weeks then we put a day aside to visit the outlets and Malls.
