“It was ok-ish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Depends on your taste, but, it didnt reflect bargains to take home or any price difference. If honest, can get better clothing deals online nowadays. Good eating venues and plenty of free food samples. Car parking free and plenty spaces and IF raining this is a place to visit to shelter for a while. 10 minutes from Orlando International, so a good venue to refresh and pass time before flight (as we did)

“Pretty average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Whilst on holiday at Disneyworld we decided to go a bit further afield and see what the mall had to offer. The connection from Downtown Disney to Florida Mall was good and the bus ticket was reasonable. There is no flaw with the mall, it has all of the amenities you would expect, there are plenty of shops and the building is in good condition; however there is also nothing special. If you want to do a bit of shopping, pick up a few bits and pieces then I'm sure you'll enjoy the mall. There are some interesting shops like the M&M and Disney store, and plenty of normal shops with clothes and technology on offer. If you actually want to spend money it may be worth a visit but do not feel the need to set aside a day to look around as this is just a normal mall.

“Too busy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

This Mall could do with a refurbishment, but does have some good shops, especially for teenagers, but I find it too busy in the summer. It is always full of large groups from Brazil who buy everything in site, not leaving much for anyone else.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We were really excited and had set aside a whole day to shop here, but we were quite underwhelmed. The Microsoft store was fantastic and a great shopping experience, as was the M&M store (but after visiting the London one this one is TINY in comparrison). Food hall was just ok, I was excited about Pinkberry but they were out of the 2 flavours I actually would have had. I wasn't impressed with most of the clothes stores and found very little that interested me and the Mac store was so so busy, you could hardly move so I would suggest going to one of the department stores if you are going for MAC stuff.
I think after going o Millenia first, this mall was a bit disappointing, I really did expect more from a US mall, and actually, I prefer the good old Metro Centre in the UK (and that's sayin a lot). We spent 3 hours here before walking to Best Buy and going back to the hotel.

“A great place for tourists”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I feel that this mall is a great place for tourists to go when they want to experience typical "American" shopping. Large shops, an absolutely delicious food court, and a variety of different types of shops leaves this place as a great place for tourists to experience. I love coming back to here. The Japanese food in the food court is pretty much unmissable too!
