    I'll second that for Target, we went in one for the first time last year and it is much nicer than Walmart and I think it was cheaper for some things as well. I know the flashing light trainers I bought Livvie were cheaper and they have a nice selection of sizes. It was a lot cleaner than Walmart.

    I'm trying to remember where it was, but I can't. I'll have to get the sat nav out and have a look in my saved section :D

    Yep. Target is much nicer, overall. Still shop at Walmart for somethings, though. My pocketbook can handle just so much and I have to take the savings where I can find them.

    There is a Target across the road from Mall at Millenia. :yes: It is a very nice one too. Might not be the closest to WDW, but it surely is one of the nicest. :yes:

    Not sure about that one, Keith, although I bet Tink knows! ;)

    I've been to the one at Florida Mall and another one at.....hmmmmmm....if you take SR535 to however you get to to the old WalMart (the huge one) and continue on for a bit until the road curves left, then make a hard left into a long drive to a parking lot, you'll arrive at a Super Target. It opened in 2004, I believe. The stores around it weren't open yet.

    Told you my directions are touristy! :lol:

    Neither one is close to WDW, though.

    That was the largest Target I had ever seen! We have Super Targets now--few and far between, but we have them! :thumbs_up:

    The one across from Millenia is a Super Target. :yes: As far as I know, none of them are open 24 hours though. Surely the cabbie won't refuse!? :eek:

    ooo super :)

    Argh I dont kow :( it's a problem. I have the same situation getting to bestbuy opposite the florida mall. I can get a taxi there but then I'm forced to cross the stupidly busy road in between bestbuy/mall because no one wants to drive me for a $5 or less fare <G>

    Geez. That's a real problem. The road at Millenia is pretty stupid busy too! I do see folks crossing though. I understand why now.

    It's quite a variety, Dawn. Everything from food (even edible flowers!) clothing, shoes, household, linens, cleaning supplies, toys, small furniture (flat pack mostly) garden supplies...

    Not sure if this link will work, but it's worth a shot!

    The one I remember is #1 in on Irlo Bronson Highway. Apparently not open 24 hours.

    http://sites.target.com/site/en/spot/search_results.jsp?&mapType=standard&startAddress=Lake+Buena+Vista%2C+FL&startingLat=28.381228926060107&startingLong=-81.5072564980251&_requestid=2193243

    Let's see if I can mess up another link. This one is for the Millenia Mall area.

    Edited to add:

    Just tested the links, but they didn't work for me. I'm on my work computer, so I'm not sure if there may be settings blocking me. Let me know and I'll remove the posts and provide the addresses if necessary.

    The only walmart I've been to, I remember vaguely, they had GIANT bouncy balls (as in, you could fit 2-3 humans inside!) and I knocked it down from the top of the thing by accident and got shouted at by a store supervisor!

    Super Target sell much the same as Walmart but they are brighter, cleaner and nicer. They also have a Starbucks concession inside :yes:
