I was sad to see the Point when I went last. All of the stores are gone, and it's more of a club like place now.

The movie theater is still one of the best in the area though.


I looked at the store directory online for Millenia and was quite shocked about the stores...........I didnt expect to see so many top boutiques there.


I think all of the outlets are still there. I think the best is the Premiere Outlets. I never cared for the other ones that are older.

Well I discovered that the Nordstroms in Florida Mall has a very poor men's shoe selection. No major brands like Gucci, Prada etc.

And I couldn't see if they had a Kiehls counter or not. I'll have to venture back to look again.

I plan on tearing through the Mall at Millenia this coming week. Can't wait to really see whats there.

Millenia Mall is nice. I found the service at the Boutiques as well as Neiman Marcus to be top notch. I usually always get snubbed at NM and the SAs in Orlando were great!!! Joesph in the Dior Boutique won my heart and instantly sold me a perfect bag. He's worth asking for while in Orlando. I wish I had more time at this mall when I was in town.

I was excited to check out the Orlando Premium Outlets, as I love the Premium Outlets in Las Vegas but this was a HUGE disappointment. I left with nothing except a headache. I couldn't believe the condition of merchandise in these stores (ripped, stained, snagged) and of course some of the styles were at least 6 seasons old. Of the stuff there worthy of even looking at the sale prices were higher than Saks' last year's clearance price. I would skip the Outlets.

That Nordstrom is horrible. I used to work at the one in Tysons Corner, VA and they had all of the top designers in salon shoes. If they didnt have something I wanted they would always order for me from the salon shoe look book. About 2 weeks ago I went to the FL mall Nordys to see if I could order some shoes from the salon shoe look book and they didnt even have one! Either that or the SA was just completely out of it. I ended up at Neiman's at Millenia and found the shoes I wanted so it all worked out.

The first thing I noticed when I moved here was that the FL mall is full of tourists, so I will only go there when it first opens b/c it gets so packed you can hardly walk!

Has anyone found any boutiques here yet? I have only found Stahli Boutique off of Alafaya Trail and Zou Zou Boutique downtown.

The main outlets here are the Premium Outlets (located near Downtown Disney) and the Prime Outlets (located on International Dr.). I prefer the Premium ones since they are all in once place vs. the Prime which you have to trek back and forth across the street to get to a certain store at times. The Prime Outlets are currently being renovated and should be completed within the next 2 weeks and will have some stores worth checking out every once and a while when complete. Located on the opposite end of International Dr. (towards SeaWorld) you can also check out Pointe Orlando for some light shopping, dinner or a movie. They have just finished remodeling as well.

Enjoy your trip!
