Mall name?

Can you help me figure out the name of the mall at end of international drive, it's on the end furthest away from Disney. The first time we went to USA and stayed on international drive we went there and there was a huge cowboy shop with hats, clothes etc. my hubby wants to go back as he wants another tshirt as his is getting a bit rough.

Its the Festival Bay Mall I think! The cowboy shop is Sheplers. Our friend has spent literally hours (and LOTS of money) in there lol!

There is also another big mall right at the North end of I-Drive called "Orlando Premium Outlets - International Drive". It used to be called Prime Outlets Orlando. There is another Orlando Premium Outlets on Vineland, so if you're Satnaving, make sure you have the right one.
Wills Mom is probably right about Sheplers though, so I suspect it's Festival Bay you want.

Wasn't there one right at the top called Beltz? I remember the food court used to be next to the Disney shop where there was a caroussel.

Next time I went it was Premium outlets and all outside.

That completely stumped me as well this trip as we used to go to Beltz outlets alot! Spent alot of money their!
When we went this time nobody had any idea what I was on about and said that the prem outlet had been called that for yrs? We stayed about 10 mins from it by I-ride and spent alot of money this time round in sun glasses and guess stuff.

I remember the first year we went was the year they changed Beltz to the Prime Outlets. The next year we went back was a big change but not many shops, the following year there were LOADS of great outlets and theres more every time
Diddldonna yup they are literally across the road from each other

Belz changed to Prime then changed again to Premium..Its a vast improvement on the original with much better stores.
Festival used tobe ok but never actually filled the store spaces and now loads of the ones they did fill have gone and its virtually empty. Not sure if its actually closed down or not now. Then the other Premium outlets are at Vineland Ave. I like these the most because of the layout, they have recently extended them as well. Then the other outlet is the LBV one..these are very small but do have an Old Navy outlet if you like them...

OH YES I LOVE MY SHOPPING

Even the change between Prime to Premium was a huge one. The Prime were better than Belz but the Premium are brilliant! Do you happen to know if they have an Ugg shop there now? Last time I was there was on honeymoon and as we were going to Vegas after Orlando we kept shopping to a minimum so I didn't spend long at the outlets in 2011. I'll make up for it next year
Its sad to see Festival Bay the way it is. Its a lovely mall and such a waste of great retail space!

Definitely an Ugg shop in the I-Drive one - not in the Vineland one. DW spent a bit of time in there. Also a North Face shop in the I-Drive one. DW bought a coat there for about $160 that in the UK is £250. So she was happy .

Excellent Thank you! Now to add that to my "must buy" list along with a million other items

Oh I love Sheplers and am the proud owner of cowboy boots, yee ha.

We've taken our toddler to Monkey Joes a couple of times it's indoor soft play bouncy castles. The mall has always been empty.
