End Your Night in Orlando at Rosen Inn

After the show, take a bow at Rosen Inn. Our affordable hotel is on International Drive, a short drive from all that Orlando has to offer. We are also dedicated to the highest standards of cleanliness and safety.

Ah, Black Friday.

Not even 24 hours removed from a day of giving thanks and showing gratitude, we lose our collective minds as stores slash prices and sling deals. Black Friday is an American tradition where shopping becomes a competitive sport. Like in football or baseball, it’s good to have a game plan before heading out to shop.

Here are six strategic tips to help you emerge victorious.

Black Friday Woman Shopping

1.      Decide Between Malls, Outlets, and Standalone Stores

The first step to planning an epic shopping spree is deciding where to go.

Orlando is full of great malls, outlets, and smaller shopping districts. The best spot for you will depend on what you’re looking for and who you’re shopping with.

Shopping Malls in Orlando

Believe us, going to a mall on Black Friday is not for the faint of heart.

But there are some benefits. First, a good mall has something for everyone. If you would otherwise find yourself driving all over Orlando to get your gifts, consider braving the mall chaos.

Second, if you’re traveling with kids who want to meet Santa, a visit to the mall may be in order.

Keep in mind that on Black Friday, the line to the North Pole could be a long one.

Two of the best malls in Orlando are the Florida Mall and the Mall at Millenia. The Florida Mall has family-friendly stores like the Crayola Retail Store, American Girl, and Build-A-Bear Workshop. There’s also a 3,000-square-foot play area. The Mall at Millenia is great for high-end gifts, with stores like Hermes, Tiffany & Co., Prada, and Gucci.

Black Friday Florida Mall

Both also have mall fixtures like Bath & Bodyworks, H&M, and Sunglass Hut.

Outlets in Orlando

You can find amazing deals at outlets and factory stores year-round, but the bargains are even better on Black Friday.

Like shopping malls, outlets have a little bit of everything.

However, they tend to be dominated by clothing stores. Outlets are a great choice if your holiday shopping list is full of fashionistas. Orlando tends to have great weather in November. So, if you go to an outlet mall, be sure to take a break in the courtyard to soak up some sun.

Orlando has three major outlet malls.

Orlando International Premium Outlets is the largest. Its 180+ stores include American Eagle, Carhartt, Reebok, Gap Kids, and Kay Jewelers. Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores is an outlet mall close to Walt Disney World. It has ample parking, a playground, and stores like Crocs, Levi’s, Timberland, and OshKosh B’gosh.

Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets is known for high-end retailers like Armani, Burberry, Brooks Brothers, and Jimmy Choo.

Other Orlando Shopping Options

Traffic sucks; there’s no getting around it (both the fact and the actual traffic).

Malls and outlets are already busy areas with a lot of traffic. Black Friday only makes things worse. For the most efficient deal hunting, instead find standalone stores and shopping centers that are out of the way.

These stores generally have lighter traffic and provide a calmer shopping experience.

Consider going to a mixed-use shopping district like Winter Park Village, Waterford Lakes, or the Loop in Kissimmee.

There are also independent boutiques and gift shops across Orlando. You may, however, want to wait a day before visiting them. Mom-and-pop shops are more likely to have deals on Small Business Saturday.

2.      Research Black Friday Deals

Most stores announce their Black Friday sales long before the fated day arrives.

Smart shoppers take advantage of these announcements and scout out the best deals on the products they actually want or need. Many stores post their sales online, so be sure to check your favorite retailer’s website in the days leading up to Black Friday.

3.      Make a Shopping List

Shopping on Black Friday without specific merch in mind is a one-way ticket to impulse buying.

It’s like going to the grocery store hungry and without a list. You wander around and grab whatever catches your eye or seems like a good enough deal. You’re likely to wind up with a bunch of stuff you don’t really need. While you rove about the store, shoppers who have already done their Black Friday research will head right for what they want.

If you wait until you get to the store to make your decisions, these pro shoppers may swipe the best deals out from under you.

Big-box stores like Walmart and Target have in-app shopping lists where you can save the products you want. Otherwise, grab some paper and a pen and make your wish list before going anywhere.

4.      Show Up Early

Black Friday is a frenzied race to the stores and shelves.

Serious Black Friday shoppers line up before the store opens, waiting to snatch the best deals. If you wait too long, these early birds are likely to grab all the hot-ticket items, leaving you with lesser deals.

To beat them, show up extra early. For your patience and dedication, you’ll be rewarded with the best Black Friday sales.

5.      Skip the Traffic and Shop Cyber Monday

If you aren’t a patient shopper or aren’t great with crowds, Black Friday may not be your thing.

And that’s okay! It doesn’t mean you have to miss out on deals. Cyber Monday has actually become more popular than Black Friday in recent years. The Monday after Thanksgiving ensures that everyone has a chance at the supreme holiday sales.

Black Friday Cyber Monday

As with Black Friday, it pays to research Cyber Monday deals, make a list, and shop early in the day.

Here are a few other Cyber Monday tips:

  • Add the items you want to your online shopping cart before the deals go live.
  • Save your credit card information to your account before the sale starts.

These tricks expedite the online checkout process and ensure that you nab your merchandise before it goes out of stock.

6.      Take Time to Rest

Black Friday shopping can be exhausting no matter how or where you shop.

Make sure you have somewhere comfortable to rest before and after your shopping trip. Rosen Inn’s convenient location on International Drive makes it easy to get to and from Orlando’s best malls, outlets, and stores. Our hotel rooms feature cozy Simmons Beautyrest® pillow-top mattresses, perfect for recuperating after a busy day of holiday shopping.

And if you’re waiting for Cyber Monday to score your deals, you’ll love our free Wi-Fi.

Dua Lipa the Future Nostalgia Tour

The pop sensation Dua Lipa is making an appearance at the Amway Center on February 11, 2022, for her Future Nostalgia Tour.

Early Life

Dua Lipa was born in London and her music influence came from her father who was the lead singer of a rock band named Oda.

She began singing at the age of 9 in her school choir where her teacher told her she can’t sing. That teacher was dead wrong. Eventually, Dua and her family moved to Pristina and that was where she decided to pursue music as a career. At the age of 15, she moved back to London, and she began to upload her own songs to SoundCloud and YouTube.

Dua Lipa became a model with an agency which, crazy enough, consequently led to a singing part in a commercial that helped open the door to her music career.

Dua Lipa is Born

In 2013, Dua Lipa signed her first music contract with Tap Management.

During her time with the record label, she co-wrote the song “Hotter than Hell.” That song resulted in her signing with Warner Bros. Records in 2014. Little did the record company know that Dua Lipa was the big female pop artist that they were looking for. The next year in 2015, she released her two singles: “New Love” and “Be the one.”

The single “Be the one” topped the charts in Europe. It was her first successful hit. All the singles she released after that were hits, specifically in the UK. Her first US hit was the song “Blow Your Mind.” It debuted at number 71 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number 23 on the Billboard Mainstream Top 40.

Dua Lipa’s rise to fame has seen her in a variety of roles.

She’s been on the cover of a variety of magazines. She signed with Next Models. Dua is a global ambassador for Foot Locker. She’s also the face of a Yves Saint Laurent perfume. Dua also released a limited-edition lip gloss line with MAC Cosmetics.

Dua Lipa the Future Nostalgia Tour

Future Nostalgia Tour

Future Nostalgia, Dua Lipa’s second album, gained publicity from its lead single “Don’t Start Now.”

The single hit number two on the UK Singles Chart and the US Billboard Hot 100. The album hit number one on the Official UK Albums Charts. Because of these rankings, Lipa became the first female British artist to have three top ten singles in a year. Soon after she released a new single called “Levitating,” which Madonna and Missy Elliot remixed. The album Future Nostalgia became the most streamed album by a woman on Spotify in the year 2020.

Experience the new pop sensation Dua Lipa Future Nostalgia Tour at the Amway Center on Friday, February 11, 2022, at 7 p.m. Get tickets early because the show is expected to sell out.

A day at a spa like The Spa at Rosen Centre or The Spa at Shingle Creek could be the perfect gift for both of you and provide the R&R you desperately need.
