    The Prime Outlets on International Drive :lol: Has the best Disney outlet I've ever visited Disney Character Warehouse, with genuine WDW merchandise .
    The Mall of Milenia is the largest of the two . Depends on sales at their Anchor Stores as far as values .

    Florida Mall for me, the millenia one is beautiful but so expensive. There's a better range at the Florida mall

    I just wish they would build a cheesecake factory at the florida mall

    i think florida mall, M@M is very nice but has the top designer labels at top designer prices, worth going to tho imho

    my nephew wanted to buy his GF back in the UK a matching back and purse, yeah i know, he was only 19, when he saw the ones he liked they were $1800 & $1200 respectively needless to say they went back where they came from :lol:

    Not being a mall shopper, we go to Millenia when there are huge sales at Bloomingdale's and the other anchor shops. We've gotten some incredible deals so my personal concept of the place is great! :D :lol:

    I don't do the Jimmy Choo shops, or the other high end places so they are of no concern to me.

    Florida Mall is huge! It's a very popular place and yes, does have a greater selection of more immediately affordable things. Keith likes their Apple store better too. :D

    I do it's true :lol: although both Apple stores are fine in truth.

    I too wish they had a cheesecake factory somewhere other than the mall at millenia :( we end up going there just for that now :/

    The problem for us with millenia is that it's all designer clothes shops and although DW likes a couple + Tiffany, there's almost nothing else there for me. They had a small bookshop and even that's gone now.

    At least at the Florida Mall there are plenty of shops with loads of choices. What I think the Florida Mall does lack is a nice choice of restaurants. It definitely needs more and nicer :D We normally do ruby tuesdays but it's hardly the best.

    It always seems to be very quiet there Mick. I do enjoy browsing around there though if we are in the area. :thumbsup:

    Well it costs us about $50 to get to each so $100 round trip.... I'm pretty sure they're in different directions so we're probably talking a fair bit to get between them making the cheesecake factory an expensive meal :lol:

    I'll have to research that one though because given you've been by car between them and I havent, perhaps I'm missing a trick there :D

    Googlemaps indicate that they are between 5.1 and 9.2 miles apart depending on which of the three routes, that GM recommends, you take.

    I know it didn't seem that far when we were driving - also MatM is quite close to the I4 for the return journey (traffic depending!) :yes:

    I love Florida Mall but didnt warm to Mall at Millenia at all. Maybe that was because I am not into designer goods and there were lots of designer shops, but thats just me. :tongue:

    Millennia to look, Florida Mall to buy.

    I also really like Prime and Orlando Premium Outlets.
