Top 5 Must-Know Holiday Shopping Tips in Orlando
There's no other place like Orlando for making lasting memories or finding memorable gifts! Make the best out of your shopping experience with these insider tips for shopping in Orlando this holiday season.
1. Parking Made Easy
The major shopping centers in Orlando make it easy to park, if you know where to go. Free covered parking garage is available at Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets. At Orlando International Premium Outlets, find plenty of spaces by Oakridge Road heading toward the Guest Services Center, Saks Fifth Avenue Outlet and Neiman Marcus Last Call. The Mall at Millenia and The Florida Mall also have plenty of parking spaces close to the entrance.
2. Plan Your Attack
Map out your shopping spree before you go by downloading it first from the desired shopping location's official website. Paper maps are also available at Guest Services Centers.
3. Find the Discounts
Many area shopping centers allow guests to register online for a printable VIP coupon book or pick them up at the Guest Services Center.
4. At the Theme Parks
While happy families enjoy the theme park action, happy shoppers can do their own thing. The best time to shop inside the theme park gates is from opening hours until mid-afternoon in order to avoid crowds buying souvenirs as they head out for the day. Theme park merchandise is also available outside of the gates. For example, the World of Disney Store at Disney Springs is the largest Disney character store on Earth!
5. Get Online
Be sure to check out the website of the shopping center before you go as many list special deals at individual stores. If you're savvy with social media, don't miss the wide array of check-in specials that venues offer on Foursquare.
