    I understand that both of these outlets are on/near I Drive. Never been to either yet but we are planning on visiting both next trip.
    Can you actually see them from I. Drive?

    I'm SOOO not an I drive expert but I can see them both on the way to florida mall (I seem to remember LOL )

    premium outlets is almost opposite downtown disney so REALLY close to Disney

    Prime recently underwent a whole new refurb a little while ago and I havent been back recently but apparently it's now really good! It's further away from Disney though.

    Prime is what used to be Belz isn't it. It's at the far end of I-Drive - it appears in front of you as you reach the end.

    Premium Outlets - well the one I go to is at Lake Buena Vista opposite a big Goodings, just past the Mary Shrine Church thing and I always spend too much money there. :eek:

    THAT'S what I was trying to remember! Belz! yep its the old Belz renewed and refurbed.

    Some of the shops are even better priced there like the BOSE shop at premium outlets is a full price one, but it's an outlet one at prime!

    It's the most expensive and least interesting to me because it's all designer clothes shops BUT its worth a visit especially at christmas because it's so beautiful! They often have bands and shows outside as well

    yup!

    It's like an upscale trafford centre for those around manchester <G>

    Basically imagine endless aisles of designer shops.... now I enjoy apple store, sony store and some of the department stores but argh the clothes shops.

    Give me JC Pennys at florida mall every time LOL I went there in may and picked up a couple of shirts, $20 on the label which I thought was a bit pricey :eek::p but anyway got to the checkout and by the time they'd run them through all the discounts, $4 a piece. That's my kind of clothes store <G>

    Seriously though, mall at millenia is definitely not where you go to save money. It's where you want to go for a Tiffany ring or the latest and greatest fashion

    Isafari, Premium outlet is near (just beyond) the shrine that I sent you to so you could light the candle for your Mam. {{{hugs}}}

    Millenia is solely for window shopping for me. Other than the fact that SOMEONE collects Studio 56 village I wouldn't go there at all. LOL.

    There is also the Lake Buena Vista outlets on 535. They are iffy in terms of having anything good. I've gotten really lucky there, but also been there several times in a row and gotten nothing at all. :oops:

    There is a new shopping "center." It's Winter Garden Village. It's just two miles from my home! :D It's a nice variety of shops and places to eat, but it's off the beaten Disney path, in that it's about 15-20 minutes north of WDW on 535.

    Really? Well then Studio 56 must be your hang out too! LOL. It's the Dicken's Village series here. She's not gotten into the whole village layout scene. Yet. But I know it's coming! LOL!

    I'm a complete sucker for them <G> we nearly missed a restaurant booking last christmas because I was stuck in front of the tv watching a WESH news feature on someone who had turned their whole house into a village complete with a little train track and lights, town square :lol:

    LOLOLOL! I think I know the piece you are talking about! That was amazing I must admit. It makes for a Christmassy feel in an state that doesn't always convey Christmas, eh? LOL!

    Thanks Tink....will be able to find Premium no problem then.:thumbs_up:

    We may actually have a drive to Winter Garden again next trip. When we were last there, we did the scenic boat tour and had lunch at a very nice restaurant but we didn't get around to any shops.

    Me too Michelle. I keep thinking I must try it but i'm not sure if it's really me. I can usually manage to spend enough at the others :rolleyes:.

    Keith, we love JCPenneys too. I can't wait to get to the new one at Posner Park this year. We bought new luggage at the one in Florida Mall last year and I'm in desperate need of other sizes :p015:
