    I didn't know where you all went off to! I said goodbye to Dusty and a few others, and I had no idea where everyone else was!

    Enjoy Paris!!!! I can't wait to go back!

    Ah yes, Festval Bay has been a ghost town since it's opening. That's why I like it.
    It is possible to walk a few hundred feet before passing an 'open' store.

    By the way, I can live in Outdoor World. That is the reason why I go to Festival Bay.

    Wal-Mart is cheaper. That's the only reason I can imagine going..

If you look on Mapquest, it's easier to find out which is the closest. (I just checked, and definitely 535 as others have pointed out to where you'll be).

    Disney is such a big property, so some stores are closer to various resorts.
    Thanks very much for checking for me, so if i ask the cab driver to take me to the Wal Mart on the 535 he should know what i mean, i hope!.

    It's a piece of America at the very least!

    I second going to Target over Wal*Mart.

    To live would be an awfully big adventure.

    Thank you and i will, our last trip to WDW was way back in 1999 so it's well overdue. We were going to go a couple of years ago but we would have only been able to afford to go for a week then, by hanging on until this year we are now going for 2 weeks which was definetly the right decision.

    Sure! - I think it's actually Kissimmee as well. Someone else said how to get there - but if you went up Hotel Royal Plaza Blvd, and went to the right at 535, it'd be on your right hand side a few miles down. From POR/POFQ you wouldn't go that way, but it's very easy and I can't see how any cab driver won't know how to find it. You can just get the address (I don't think the address is actually 535, but it's right off the road).

    If you are going to pay for a taxi out to Festival Bay I would suggest that you go Mall at Millenia instead, it is very close an much nicer.
    I have just checked out both of those and they look great, i think i will have to try and squeeze them into our trip plan somehow!, i really love the shopping malls as you can tell!.
    Would you say the best way to get to the Orlando Premium Outlet would be to catch the boat from POFQ to Downtown Disney and get a taxi from there?.

    Thanks again for the info, it has been a big help. I realise it would be a lot cheaper and much more convienient to have our own car but the only one of us who can drive is my dad and as he's coming up 75 years old he said he would'nt feel confidant to drive in the US.
    We will be using taxis a lot during our trip as apart from the shopping places we are also going to Sea World, Universal Studios and Discovery Cove so it is going to cost us quite a lot in cab fares but it will be worth it!

    I'm not sure it will make much difference from your hotel. You can get a taxi (or rental car), just get the I-4 exit to LBV, and you'll cross 535 towards the mall. It's only about a mile or two once you get off the exit (I used to live near there). Really, I'd just get the taxi from the hotel.

    The super Publix is across the street from the back of the mall.

    Thanks for letting me know, maybe i will give that one a miss then, it looked a lot nicer than you described on the website, i won't like it if it's too dead and many of the areas are closed.
    I will stick to Florida Mall, Wal Mart and the 2 that Disney Magic suggested
