“Old Town Gets Old Quickly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

This is the strangest place in Orlando area. Forget the odd ball attractions, this place has it all.
Motel rooms that look creepy, Timeshares, etc. Irish stores,British stores, and stores I can't even pronounce.
Electric chair executions, Zip Lines, 400' tandum soaring, Car Rallies, food, beverages, race cart tracks, Pizza, Free stage entertainment, a store packed street that has everything and I mean everything, rides for kids, all day endless soda cup for about $8. specials allover the place, but one gets a strage feeling here. Weird. It is trying to be all things to all people. Invest $20 in the "penny" arcade, win 1,000's of machine spitted coupons and get a tiny plastic doll.
Just a fun place. You actually should try it once, Car shows on evenings and discount coupon book offers in give-a-ways, redeemable at Welcome Center.

“Great Little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

This place gets some criticism now but we went twice during our trip (2 x Saturday nights) and had a great time. The funfair is great for kids, the car cruise is still as fun as I remember and the atmosphere is great. Live music, BBQ, beers, fun fair and cars – what else do you need for a fun night?
It is unfortunate that some of the shops are empty but the place still has a fun vibe and if we visit Orlando again we will certainly go back.

“Old Town USA : Too Old!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

Old Town USA is past its prime. Many years ago we used to go there on evenings after a day at Disney World. Most of the shops are now in a rundown state, some are even closed. The atmosphère is more of a ghost town. The Gems Shop might be the only thing worth a visit. They have a wide variety of "trinkets" for all price ranges. On Friday and Saturday evenings there is a classic car cruise on Main street. A few carnival rides are available if you like including an old carrousel.

“Great evening spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

We first went early afternoon on Sunday but many of the shops were still closed even though they were supposed to open at 10 went back after dark and totally different place. Ate at the tex next which was much better than expected and my favorite store is the mineral one. Great night time place
