Probably 10 years ago, during one of our visits, we made the drive up to the Blez Mall and discovered some great shopping values, especially the Disney Character warehouse were you can find Disney items at 75% off sticker. During all of our visits since we have made the trip up there. Well this year we found the Blez was gone and a new premium mall in its place. They did this in just one year as we were there at the old place just last February. The new mall is called the prime outlet, it is much prettier with stone side walks, landscaping, and fountains, but unfortunately many of the good deals are gone and replaced with high end "outlet" stores. The character warehouse was still there and we did find a few good deals but the hard rock store is gone and many others. The Prime outlet is very similar to the premium outlets with prices and offerings. The only true remaining outlet mall is now the Lake BuenaVista outlet mall on 535. It is not as fancy but the good deals are there and there is also a Disney store. for example. there was a clair's outlet at the new Prime mall. My wife found a display with many items priced at 10 for $10. At the LBV mall there is also a clair's outlet. They had the same display with the same items priced at 10 for $5. So, IMHO, if you are looking for deals head to the LBV outlet mall.

Is the Lake BuenaVista outlet mall on 535 the one on the corner of Vineyard next to the Mary Queen of Peace Shrine? I get them all confused.

i don't think so. You go to the intersection of 535 and 536 and pick up 535 east. It is just a mile or so on the left. If you are near the marriott world or the Nick hotel you are almost there.

That BELZ outlet SERIOUSLY needed to be updated,last time I remember going in there it looked like something out of 1979,haven't made it out there since the renovations,I usually go to the Premium outlets.

^ They did/are doing a great job on the refurbs. They look a lot like the Premium Outlets now in Buena Vista. Actually worth going to now.

I think they did a great job with the refurb, but the shops seem to be quite similar to the Premium Outlets. That said, I still love going to the Disney outlet. You can get great deal on pins to trade there.

Oh, yes, the new Prime Outlet is much nicer, and to me the prices at the Disney outlet there were much better than at the one at the Premium Outlet. I just found out last night about the LBV outlets. When we go to the outlets, we only visit the Disney ones, though.

As I said, there is a third Disney outlet at the LBV outlets. LBV outlet is not as fancy but you'll find better prices. To me, I'd rather have the discounts then the fnacy stores.

There are those three. There may be some others but remember, outlet is an overused word. Prime is at the north end of I-drive where Premium and LBV are at the lower end.

The prices at Prime were better than Premium. Now, I haven't been to the LBV, so I can't compare them. Prices at Prime at at least 50% off and more. I have gotten mickey ears for as little as $3.00 and autograph books were $4 or $5.
