Time for Tea
The new American Girl store is something to squeal about.
Shh, don’t tell the Disney princesses, or they may start feeling neglected: The American Girl store opens this fall at The Florida Mall. Your daughter can adopt her own American Girl doll, then select accessories, outfits and even furniture from the 14,000-square-foot store. She can even take her new doll to the hair salon for matching hairstyles or to the “CreativiTees” boutique to design a wee T-shirt. No trip is complete without a special meal in the bistro for “fancy French toast” or tea for two, including cucumber sandwiches and mini BLTs. The Florida Mall is one of two upscale malls in Orlando. 8001 S. Orange Blossom Trail, 407.851.7234, www.simon.com
