Head to The Mall at Millenia and Orlando Premium Outlets - Vineland Avenuefor some retail therapy.

Pack the 1st (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Walt Disney World Resort. Have a day of magic on the 31st (Fri) at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Next up on the itinerary: add some entertainment to your itinerary with Happily Ever After Fireworks and browse the different shops at Disney Springs.
