When you travel, one of the most popular activities (besides eating) is shopping. We love to shop around Central Florida! There are so many unique and fun places to shop from outlet malls to airports. Our guide walks you through the best shopping in Orlando.
Top 9 Orlando Shopping Spots
The Mall at Millenia
This is a high-end shopping mall in Orlando. The Mall at Millenia features some incredible casual restaurants like California Pizza Kitchen and Johnny Rockets, along with hundreds of luxury stores.
It is a luxury shopping experience. Some of our favorite stores include Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Armani Exchange, Prada, Neiman Marcus, Jimmy Choo, Tiffany & Co, and Bloomingdale’s. You can also find some cute boutique shops. It is a perfect shopping area for any luxury shopper visiting Orlando!
Orlando International Airport
You may not think of the airport as a hot shopping spot, but in the Orlando area you can get some of those favorite souvenirs (you forgot to pick up at the Theme Parks or Attractions) on your way out of town.
There are stores for Universal Studios, Disney World, Sea World, Kennedy Space Center and more. One of our favorite stores for kids is Kennedy Space Center. Pick up some astronaut food for the airplane ride home.
World Showcase at Epcot
Where else can you pick our your own pearl in Japan or buy a sombrero made in Mexico, all in one day. That is the World Showcase at Epcot. All of the souvenirs are made in the country you purchase them.
All of the Disney Cast Members are also from the country, so be sure to ask them all about the history of the souvenirs and about their country. You can learn something on vacation!
Locals love the Florida Mall, located right down the road from the Orlando International Airport. This Simon Mall features several of your regular favorites and then some very cool stores like The Disney Store, American Girl Store, M&M’s World, Macy’s, or Crayola Experience.
The Disney Store has great prices on the same type Disney merchandise you will find at the Disney Theme Parks. We love this Orlando shopping spot. We recommend visiting during the day vs the evening hours for Florida Mall. Just like with any travels, pay close attention to your surroundings when walking to and from your car or transportation.
Disney’s Days of Christmas
One of the most popular souvenirs in Orlando is Christmas ornaments. This is always such a great way to remember your family vacations. We had to mention one of the best Christmas Shops in Orlando called the Disney’s Days of Christmas at Downtown Disney Marketplace.
You can get an ornament to remember your Disney World vacation and even get it personalized with your name. Another fun part of this store if the photo opportunity right outside the shop with Goofy and Friends. This is a classic spot to get a picture for a family Christmas Card.
Orlando International Premium Outlets
The original premium outlet mall in Orlando got a new name and has been renovated. This mall is called Orlando International Premium Outlets. It is close to Disney World and right off International Drive and Vineland.
This outlet mall is better than ever with great shops all at outlet prices. You can find brand names at discount prices.
Our favorite outlet store is Disney’s Character Outlet. It is the same Disney Merchandise you find in the Disney Theme Parks or on the Disney Cruise Line, but at 50-60% off. You can even find those popular Disney D & B purses!
This outlet has a lot of your other favorite brands, including Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Nike, Victoria’s Secret, Polo Ralph Lauren, Kate Spade, Vans, and more. This outlet on I-Drive is a must do for amazing deals on outlet shopping during your vacation.
This mall is open-air, so be sure you check the weather before heading off to the premium outlets.
World of Disney at Disney Springs Marketplace
This is the largest Disney merchandise store anywhere, so you do need to make a stop at World of Disney to pick up your Disney World merchandise. The World of Disney is located at Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World Resort. We love World of Disney, but there are so many other amazing stores at Disney Springs. You can find Zara, Lucky Jeans, Sephora, LEGO Store, Vera Bradley, and more. You will also find a lot of specialty shops like Ron Jon Surf Shop.
This is the largest Disney merchandise store anywhere, so you do need to make a stop at World of Disney to pick up your Disney World merchandise. One of our favorite sections in the World of Disney is the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and Princess Store. This is the ultimate spot for Princesses of all ages.
This marketplace also has a ton of dining options. I would spend the afternoon or evening shopping and eating at this Orlando shopping destination.
Universal CityWalk at Universal Orlando
For shopping, nightlife, and restaurants a prime stopping spot if CityWalk at Universal Studios. You can grab a bite to eat and leisurely wander through some fun shops including Margaritaville, Quiet Flight Surf Shop, Hard Rock store, and more.
This is a perfect evening shopping spot – grab dinner, catch a movie at the movie theater, and do some shopping.
Main Street USA at Magic Kingdom
This Orlando shopping made our #1 best shopping spot. These is something just extra magical about shopping on Main Street USA in Magic Kingdom. There are several shops along Main Street USA at Disney World. You can grab an ice cream and wander through the many stores before heading some.
Main Street USA is also a great place to hit during the rain, since you can walk from one store to the next all indoors.
