    We dont really care about it being cheap but we just want the best biggest mall or shopping area in orlando that we can get to easily from Disney?

    Is it the florida mall or the premium mall or something else?

    The closest mall to WDW is the Premium Outlet Mall which is located very near to DTD and hopefully you should find all that you need there.
    We also go to the Florida Mall which is much larger but it is located further away from WDW.

    Mall of Millennia is the one I know. Uber expensive but great for people watching.

    I agree with Mari. The only other one's you could look at are The Loop on John Young Parkway which is like our out of town shopping area's and there is also Festival Bay up near Prime at the top of international drive. t
    There is a fantastic shop called Bass Pro which caters for just about any outdoor persuit.

    There's also the Winter Garden Village which is a kind of outdoors mall and shopping area. It's really nice to walk around and is less touristy than the others!

    It really does depend upon what sort of merchandise you are after.

    The old Beltz, now Prime Outlets is sprawling and huge, but doesn't really have great prices.

    I'm partial to Winter Garden Village, but that's because it's close to my home. I'm not much of a mall person, so I prefer those where the shops are directly accessible without having to go into a huge mall and hunt down the store you are looking for. :D

    We liked premium outlets rather than prime (either end of i-drive) - premium is great as they now have a crocs shop & there are some really good prices there.

    We like Florida Mall due to Build A Bear Workshop - we got Florida, Orlando, Sunshine bears from there & I also find the Disney shop good with some bargains which was great for the school friends. We also liked the M&M shop & the sweety shop!!!!

    Desperate to try Mall of Millenia, but as we don't drive it is a little further out - but now cheesecake factory is now closed at DTD, I may have to persuade DH that it is a necessity next year!!!
