    Hello all,

    We are thinking of going to Florida Mall and Mall of Millennia from AKL. Would it be better to hire town car or go to DTD and try and find taxi?

    Which would you go first? Florida Mall or Mall of Millennia?

    There doesn't seem to me to be much difference these days between town car/taxi. Taxis having gone up so much in the last few years.

    Town cars will give you the advantage of a preset price, pick up time and collect time. Nicer cars but they usually expect a bit more tip.

    If you choose taxi though you dont need to go to DTD, just ask the people at the valet desk and they'll call over a taxi for you no problem

    erm um erm um :lol: Mall at millenia has more upmarket shops, it's "nicer", has cheesecake factory for breakfast/lunch etc., florida mall is more down to earth, busier, food court, and potentially cheaper although you can find good offers in millenia sometimes.

    So very very much up to you really. There's no advantage in going for one first over the other but I guess we'd probably do florida mall first and then go to mall at millenia and do cheesecake factory as a break.

    My rule of thumb has always been to go to Mall at Millenia to look, then Florida Mall to buy.

    On my next trip, I'm going to try Altamonte Mall - I've heard good things about that one.

    We are planning final things now :wiggle:

    What would be the best way to go from Florida Mall to Mall of Millenia? Local taxi?

    I prefer the Florida Mall as the Mall at Millenia has more high end shops and is a little smaller than the Florida Mall.

    We only usually go to M at M for the Cheesecake Factory :D

    Looks like we'll be doing both again if cheesecake factory is only in one.

    What, you both are :thud:

    It's a must do every trip for us although we don't like the cheesecake :lol: We normally share an orange chicken with rice and then a strawberry shortcake or apple something which is delicious.

    Just as an FYI the portions are huge, so don't be afraid to ask for an extra plate and share, we do. The other option is to get there before 5pm (I think) and you can get a small plate, but then even that is a lot :lol:
