“Reminds me of the mall from Dawn of the Dead”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2010

There is nothing here, im surprised its still open. There is only a couple of good stores here, the best being Ron Jon Surf Shop. I can't see this place staying open for long, especially seeing as the former Belz Factory Outlets at the top of I Drive has recently been replaced by Prime Outlets Orlando.

“Digtal Direct doesn't even bother to open on time or help the waiting!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2010

Digtal Direct doesn't even bother to open on time or help the waiting!
I waited for them to Open, about 20 minute late some man showed up, went inside for a while, then left, putting up a sign than said he'd be back in 10 minutes, but more than 20 minutes later he still wasn't back, & never a word to me waiting a few feet outside the store, by the bench in front of the store!
At least they have a Game Arcade across from Digital Direct that one might enjoy blowing some money on while one waits to be disappointed.
I looked through the glass closure in front, Digital Direct seemed remarkably small, with mostly like youth game stuff & all, probably of no interest or use beyond the youthful gamers & such.
The Bass Pro Shop or whatever it's called seems very very nice, remarkably big, remarkably good selection & good, helpful Employees!
I didn't visit the Movies there, but I imagine they might be extra-enjoyable, with so few people at Festival Bay.
I enjoyed shopping through there as I left.

“Festival Bay has an Excellent Bass Pro!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2010

Festival Bay has an Excellent Bass Pro! The best one i've seen, out of about 10. The day we went, one of the employees was doing an archery demo. There is also some neat animals too look at like normal. This is a really good Bass Pro for the disabled because it is all one one floor, exept for a couple of racks of clothes on the second floor. It also has a golf area which is unique. Come here to see one of the better Bass Pros'!

“Festival Bay Mall is a terrible place to...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2010 via mobile

Festival Bay Mall is a terrible place to go. There are not many stores inside and more and more stores and restaurants shut down. The management and security team treat patrons like crap.

“Brilliant for a couple of hours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2010

Not many shops there when i went in Sept 09 (might have added a few then) the main highlights were just the Ron Jon shop & the glow in the dark mini golf, if you wanted a mall full then florida mall is the place, but like the title being just a couple of hours there, means you can go to another shopping centre, such as the Prime outlets, which is just up the road. The Ron Jon shop was exceptional, spent over $100 in an hour easy in there, so much choice and not too expensive. The glow in the dark mini golf was very different to the others such as congo river and pirates cove, but it worked, fantastic idea and not busy and waiting around. look forward to going back there this June.
