No you can't walk it it's too far and too many big roads to cross. This might help you.

It really depends on how far you care to walk. The distance to the nearest point at the outlet is about 2.25 miles. Or, around 45-50 minutes brisk walking.

There are roads to cross, yes; but they all light controlled except one, and that one (the entry slip for I4 from SR535) is one lane wide. There are breaks in traffic caused by another light down the street, and there is a marked cross walk where is is law that motorists yield to pedestrians (not that I trust them to do so). So it's all do-able with appropriate care, if you are up for the distance.

Otherwise it's two bus rides - 50, transferring to 8 on Sea Harbor Drive. Or a taxi for speed.

I have also been led to believe that the Outlets do a courtesy bus. Any knowledge on that would be great.

Just ask the hotel concierge after you arrive.

Taxi will be short and cheap/

AFAIK the courtesy bus operates to/from Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores which is a different outlet mall.

Take a taxi. Its only a few miles but it a very dangerous stretch of roads with exits/entrances for major highways.The road off SR 535 that leads to the mall is also pretty dicey. Way too dangerous to walk-and I jaywalk in NYC frequently. There is no courtesy bus to this mall-be safe,there's a cab stand outside of your hotel

We must have very different definitions of dicey, unsafe, etc. As I have walked this route several times and not ever felt in danger. I can't imagine how Vineland Av can be considered dicey, and the intersections between there and Hotel Plaza Blvd are, as I say, all except one light controlled with signalled pedestrian crosswalks. Perhaps the perception from inside a vehicle differs from the perception outside......

SR 535 is a major highway. right past the exit from Hotel Plaza Blvd to the south is the entrance to Interstate 4,a very busy area. Vineland Road leads not only to the Premium Outlet mall but to several hotels,a Publix,the Hilton time share-we don't own a car,live in a city where we take public transportaion every day and walk-and I can't see how those roads can be considered anything but very dangerous.

Neither do I. Cars are required to yield, but I wouldn't bet my life at a major interstate intersection like I-4. Cars are also not supposed to tailgate either, but you wouldn't know that here.
