Outlet shopping

One afternoon we plan on going outlet shopping at the premium outlet on Vineland Ave. Apparently they have an outlet shuttle

Quote:
Transtar Transportation
Complimentary round trip transportation to Orlando Premium Outlets - Vineland Ave from select Lake Buena Vista hotels. For reservations and information, call (407) 858-3008.

Do they stop at Disney or downtown disney? Is there somewhere else that is easy/cheap to get to that you recommend instead?

Hrmm... interesting, I've never heard of that.
I would suggest giving the number a call and letting us know what you find out!

Lake Buena Vista hotels usually means the DTD hotels, which may be picky about who can get on the bus there. But let us know what you find out!

There are numbers to call first to make the call cheap, try googling it, or you could use Skype Smile

I tried calling a few times - used my google talk account after the first time. They really don't make sense. We're going to cab it from Epcot one afternoon.

Maybe when you actually get there, the hotel can tell you more about it....then you can avoid the cab fare.

Is this the outlet that has the discount Disney stuff I've heard about?? Lanyards, tshirts, other park-type stuff?

I could be wrong, but I think that's the other one, the one that's at the end of I Drive. It's pretty cool! I always stop in there to see if there's anything I can't live without Smile I believe this is the one that's uber close to WDW.

It's been a couple of years since I was there, but it was the mall at the north end of I-Drive (near Universal) that had the Disney clearance store.

yep! the outlet mall further away from Disney is the one with the Disney Character Outlet where they sell all the cool stuff for cheap. The one thats closer to Disney is in Little Lake Bryan and has a ton of stores too. Its really close to my old apartment and we used to walk there all the time to visit their food court since we didn't have cars. laugh

both say they have a character outlet. We're mostly going for things other than that.

I give a slight edge to the one on I Drive, but that's mostly because of parking and traffic issues. You won't have to deal with that, thankfully. Good luck and let us know what you find!
