Shopping in OrlandoEdit This
The Florida Mall
The Florida Mall is home to 270 stores. It's in a central location to most major tourist attractions in Orlando. Walt Disney World is the farthest away with a 30 minute drive. Monday through Saturday the mall is opened from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm. On Sundays it's only opened noon until 6:00 pm. If you're worried that these hours are just not enough time to get in a full day of shopping, then you can optimize your time by staying at the Florida Hotel. It's located directly next to the Florida Mall and there's even an entrance to the mall from the hotel.
Although the Florida Mall was built in 1986, it has managed to stay very current with stores and interior design of the mall. The Florida Mall is more geared towards shoppers who are looking for moderately priced items. It's basically a super-sized version of an average mall. A highlight is the M&M store, which will entertained children and adults. Plan to spend at least a day at the Florida Mall. There are plenty of stores to keep you busy and a well-diverse food court to keep your stomach happy.
Mall at Millenia

Sunday the hours are noon until 7:00 pm. Mall at Millenia is ideal for shoppers with a larger budget and also those who wish to window shop in more luxurious stores. There are shops that hold a familiarity with most people, such as GAP and PacSun, but the mall is filled with more high-end stores. Dior, Channel, Coach, and Tiffany & Co. are just some of the stores that will provide shoppers with a unique experience.
