The Orlando Sentinel announced yesterday that Orlando’s Premium Outlet malls will offer a free shuttle service from certain area hotels. Simon property group is pairing with Mears Transportation for the service connecting 38 hotels to the malls. So many of you will now have the opportunity to do some shopping without having to pay your way there.
Busses can carry up to 50 passengers and include free wireless Internet. We sure love free, so how exactly does this work?
Hotel pick up runs between 9:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m., while drop off runs between 3:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
Each of the Premium Outlet malls will have a shuttle bus.

For those of you staying on Disney property, it looks like the only participating resorts are the Swan and Dolphin, although many of the Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels including B Resort & Spa, Best Western, Doubletree Suites, Hilton, and Holiday Inn will have pick up and drop off availability.
Shoppers still can use the I-Ride Trolley shuttle service that basically runs from the Orlando International Premium Outlet Mall the length of I-Drive to Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets. The I-Ride Trolley will cost $2 for a single trip or $5 for the day.
