“What is going on here?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

We visited here on a previous stay in Orlando and although not exactly busy it was a pleasant way to spend an hour or two. Visited a few weeks ago and the place was almost empty, hardly any shops open and a strange weird atmosphere, I did wonder for a bit whether the place was actually open at all as we literally didn't see any people at all for 5 minutes. Best avoided completely, if you want to shop in Orlando there are infinite better choices.

“Waste of time. Nearly everything shut down”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

We have been here in previous years when we have been in florida. We went yesterday and it was pratically derelict. Nearly all the shops were closed down. We walked in and out within minutes. We used to like Ron Jon but that was half the size and very expensive to what it used to be
