Orlando is a wonderland for shopaholics, boasting some of the best outlet shopping malls in the world. Here is CLC World’s guide to getting the most out of your outlet shopping experience in Orlando, including top tips for landing a great bargain. We can only apologise now for the fact that your suitcase is bound to be twice as heavy when you leave as it was when you landed at our CLC holiday resorts in sunny Florida!

Designer Shopping

Orlando is one of the best destinations in the US for chasing labels without breaking the bank. Orlando Premium Outlets is the most recognised name for grabbing a bargain and is perfect for designer shopping on a budget. The Orlando Premium Outlets have two locations which can be confusing to visitors, so make sure you research online beforehand and check you have the right location if it’s a specific brand or store you’re searching for. At the Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets, you’ll find the likes of Burberry, Guess, Coach, Gap, Nike and more.

The second location is Orlando International Premium Outlets. This mall is the larger of the two, and houses names such as Armani, Calvin Klein, Converse, Disney, Levi’s, Polo Ralph Lauren and more. On top of these two outlet giants, there is also the more compact Orlando Outlet Marketplace, located next door to the Orlando International Premium Outlet.

Insider Tips

Tip No.1 – Timing is everything

Both of the Orlando Premium Outlets locations tend to get very busy, particularly towards the afternoon. Valet parking is offered, but if you would rather save the money to put toward your shopping it’s best to arrive as early in the day as possible to increase your chances of finding a convenient parking space.

Tip No.2 Don’t get caught in the rain

The Orlando Premium Outlets are both outdoors, so if outlet shopping is going to be your go-to wet weather day activity, just be sure to take along an umbrella.

Tip No.3 Do your research

Another great money-saving tip is to start following your favourite outlets and stores on social media before your visit, as they will often feature special offers, promotions and deals. It pays to be in the know!

Tip No.4 Make sure it’s really a good deal

There are some unmissable style steals to be discovered in Orlando, but be wary of false economy in the form of apparel which is manufactured specifically for outlet stores and can be of lower quality. The best value for money comes in purchasing ‘genuine’ outlet pieces, such as lines from past seasons which were left over from mainstream stores.

Good luck and happy shopping!!
