This holiday season, The Florida Mall will dazzle area families and visitors with an all-new Santa set and cheerful, illuminated holiday décor featured throughout the mall. Inspired by a nostalgic stroll through snowfall on a winter night, the theme for Santa’s new home at The Florida Mall is “Wonderful Holiday Swirl”.
This last weekend our team visited The Florida Mall, and here’s what a few of our contributors had to say!
What a fun experience, and to see the excitement in the children’s eyes was so special! On a side note: If you’re looking for a great place to get those Santa photos, @shopfloridamall has a beautiful setup and there are so many photo ops with their amazing decor! – Orlando Moms Blog Contributor Amanda
Orlando Moms Blog Contributor Jaclyn shared- “The kids (and parents) had a magical time! And I guess we will see if Santa brings Lily the real unicorn she asked for. 🦄😂 Thank you @buildabear for their new friends and @carlosbakery for the delicious cupcakes! I am headed back to #ShopFloridaMall this week to finish up my gift lists.

Contributor Anne Marie shares, “As you walked through the newly remodeled mall we were struck by how inviting it was! Plenty of seating for the weary shopper to rest their feet while charging their phone. Our absolute favorite area had to be the Play Park though! It was different than any mall play area we had ever seen before with things to climb on, crawl through, and interact with there was never a dull moment. The Play Park is in such an ideal location being right next to Crayola Experience where we were able to explore more colors than we thought possible.
When we got home we refueled on a delicious assortment of cupcakes from Carlos’ Bakery. This is a stop we have been wanting to try since they opened. Buddy and the gang did not disappoint!
