Would like to hear from those of you who have shopped at the Disney Outlets? I understand that there are 3 in town.

Also, there are Bargain Worlds and other gift shops on I-Drive. Any of those worth visiting?

Would also be interested in picking up cheap Sea World, Aquatica, and Busch Gardens souvenirs, in addition to Disney stuff.

DS loves to shop.:sad2: and I love to save $;)

We make outlet runs every trip, and we're pretty much only going to the Disney outlets, not so much the other stores. I've found that the ones on I drive and the one by the Mary Queen of the universe shrine have the best deals and selection. We also always seem to go to the one on apopka-vineland because we've been there for the tent sale -which has been great- but otherwise the stuff is usually pretty lame.
I haven't been to the Bargain World type stores since my first trip, but I remember them having the more generic "Disney-Florida" merchandise...

Thank you that helps a lot. So I guess we should stick with the three major Disney Outlets. I assume you are talking about Prime, Premium, and LBVF. Those are the three I am seeing listed.

Those are the ones I was talking about. I can never remember which one is prime, and which one is premium:confused3! We always just call them the close one, the crappy one, and the far away one:lmao:

We call them that too!:laughing: But I have seen Universal stuff at the crappy one (LBVF). I have found a few things there but you really do have to search.

Prime is off I-Drive, closer to Universal. Premium is off I4, closer to DTD. Prime is better.:goodvibes

On this last trip I didn't see anything of interest at the outlets so I decided that this trip I won't go lol. Honestly it takes time away that I could spend at hotel pool or something like sitting back and reading a book.

But thats just me.

There is now a fourth!

A new Disney one just opened the first week in March in the LBV factory outlets on sr535. They still have the outlet in the back of the mall (near Nike and Old Navy) that has other stuff besides Disney. Now there is a smaller one next to the Food Court and Kasper. It only has Disney stuff, and is run by the same people who run the bigger one in the back. Much more organized than the big one! When I was there they had park merchandise and stuff from the NYC World of Disney store that closed.

I got DD a 2006 mini snow globe for $0.49! She now collects snowglobes and 2006 was her first trip, so great find!

I had a similar experience. Last October we went to the rebuilt Prime Outlets (formerly the BEST outlet). What a disappointment! It was nothing compared to the selection and bargains that the old store had. Not worth the trip out there.

Just curious, How much do adult t-shirts run in these outlet stores? I'd like to pick up a few t-shirts that are soft (not stiff) and cheap to wear at the parks. And, what have been your best finds at these places?
