The third-best outlet shopping in town is a strip mall–style collection of about 50 stores, not all of which are owned by famous brands. The offerings here, about 2 miles south of the Downtown Disney gate, are not as shimmering as those at its two rival outlet malls, but they’re decent, especially for kids. There are enough names you know (including Tommy Hilfiger Kids, Carter’s for Kids, Old Navy Outlet, OshKosh B’Gosh, and Aéropostale) to warrant a quick trip. The Disney Character Outlet has some bargains (half-price mugs, shirts, toys, and some souvenirs dated from a few years ago), and there’s a Travelex office for currency exchange. The mall provides a free daily shuttle to and from major hotels around Disney and I-Drive; they leave between 9am and 2:50pm and return in four batches from 12:55 to 7pm (6pm on Sun).
