The Florida Mall is the largest single shopping venue in the whole of Orlando, with a staggering 250 stores drawing roughly 20 million visitors every year – that’s similar to how many people nearby Universal Studios pull in annually.
There’s over two million square foot of space here, and you’re sure to find everything from mid-range fashion stores to luxury designer brands, as well as plenty of electronics, home decor, accessories and health and beauty. If that’s not enough, The Florida Mall has an enormous 510-room hotel (The Florida Hotel) attached with direct access to all the shops.
Open every day from 10:00-21:00, The Florida Mall is located on S Orange Blossom Trail, south of Downtown and just a few minutes’ along the highway from major attractions in Orlando such as Disney World and Universal.
In terms of shopping at The Florida Mall, highlights include a Macy’s, a flagship Zara, Central Florida’s only Disney Store, the second ever ‘Crayola Experience’ in the world, a vast Toys “R” Us store, and equally huge Target. There’s also all regular US mall fixtures too such as Abercrombie, Desigual, Adidas, Banana Republic, GAP, Foot Locker, H&M, Quicksilver, Hollister, and Apple.
No American mall is complete without a long lineup of fast food chains, and The Florida Mall doesn’t disappoint on that front either. There’s familiar names such as Starbucks, California Pizza Kitchen, Subway, Taco Bell, Auntie Anne’s, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and many more.
Recent renovations have also added a 105,000 square foot ‘Dining Pavilion’, as well as more shops, a larger seating area and free Wi-Fi throughout. Other facilities at The Florida Mall Orlando include a foreign exchange service, valet parking and onsite car lot, taxi stands, indoor children’s playground and a seasonal shuttle program. Sales and promotional events of all shapes and sizes run all year round, and it’s best to check the ‘deals’ section of their website (below) for more details.
