Area Facts

Although Orlando is recognized world wide for its spectacular theme parks, the area also has a host of other amenities.

Malls & Shopping Centers

International Drive – This 3-mile strip has one of the largest concentrations of shop options in the Orlando area.

Orlando – The proliferation of shop options elsewhere have left Downtown Disney® struggling for a bit of recognition - but certainly not for quality.

West Orlando – Options here included Metro West, Winter Garden, Ocoee and part of Turkey Lake Road.

Kissimmee – Just south east of the Walt Disney World® Resort, Kissimmee has several interesting shopping areas.
