Which outlet mall to visit in Orlando?

Last time we went to Orlando my DH went to a particular outlet twice. I was all shopped out after NYC so didn't bother going.

I know they both have similar names like Premier and Premium or something but which one is better?

Definitely the Premium Outlet, there is a Disney Charater outlet store there (if you are lucky you can pick up cheap pins for trading.

The Neiman Marcus, and Saks outlets are worth checking out.

Allow a full day for shopping, and buying the extra suit-cases

I found a photo of Premium and showed it to my husband and he has confirmed that's the one he went to last time so thank you for that.

He is whinging because I've got the outlets down for day 8 of the trip. He feels he can't wait that long to shop so I said he is more than welcome to go early on his own if he wants to .

What can I say, my man likes to shop

premium outlets

we love them so much we went back 3 times...DH is also a shopper, but also a bloke, so can only do 3 hrs max before his head explodes all over the concreteso we do it in lots

added up $$$ how much we spent there but we wont have to buy new clothes til next sept when we do this all over again...

the savings are amazing, so really make time for it.
ie: 13 business shirts, diff brands, cost here in au would be around $1400....we spent aprox $390 .....not to mention the shoes, pants, polo shirts etc...saved enough to pay for at least one airfare

I'm the DH in this scenario. After 3 hours I start to glaze over. I wonder if they have a bar in the mall? If he could just plop me there with a champers, DS could have a "fireengine lemonade" and play his Nintendo and DH and DD can shop til they drop.

I too am a premium outlet mall chick - all my wardrobe is Ferragamo and Anne Taylor! YAY!
However, on my last trip I ventured up to the Mall at Millenia - and it is very good. It was sale time (and remember their big "black friday" annual sale starts last friday in Nov - and considering the US is already cheaper than Aus for many things - make the Mall a saving too.
AND the mall has different stuff to the outlet
AND it has chocolate and coffee and alcohol

Ahaha. Ms Shuttergirl, your family sounds like mine. My husband is really excited about the outlet malls, whereas just a couple of hours of shopping is usually all I can take before I start to get bored and grumpy.
I was thinking that half a day of outlet shopping on one of the last days of our 3 week trip would be about perfect. I haven't told DH this yet though.

Another vote for Premium Outlets at the top of International Drive! There is a restaurant/bar there, too.
Also the Florida Mall is a good stop - they have an Apple store there, too, if you are after any of that! (iPad mini anyone?? ) Plus loads of other stores, too. It is huge, though!!!
I do so love shopping in the US!!

We bought Sunglasses at the Saks outlet - Burberry for around $80. Though C21 in NY had great sunglasses as well.

Shopping, my favourite pass time. I thought they changed the name of outlets and they are both Premium outlets now

Anyway my favourite one is the one that is further away from WDW, the one on International drive. I have a hard time not shopping everyday. I have a problem , yes I admit. I have a problem

Remember to go to their website and print off the coupon to take to the info centre to get your coupon book for even more discounts.
