Shopping - Whether you want to pick up designer outfits at bargain prices or stroll through cool contemporary malls the shopping opportunities are limitless - here’s, in our opinion, the best of the rest.

Filling your time once you get to Orlando will be easy - in fact it will be impossible to fit everything in! We really think that the best way to enjoy Orlando is to have a good idea of what you’d like to do before you get here.

We've been holidaying here since 2006 and over the years we have experienced just about all of the visitor attractions, shopping outlets, golf courses and restaurants so we thought we’d give you a quick run down of the very best that this wonderful place has to offer - all within easy reach from Sandy Ridge Drive!
