Mobile American girl doll shop

Hi folks,

On our trip to Orlando in October our youngest will be turning 6. For her birthday she wants to go to the American Girl store in the Florida Mall (thanks Youtube! ). Anyway I just would like to
Know anyones experience if theyve been. Apparently they gave a cafe where you can have lunch with your doll 🤨. Any info would be greatly appreciated x

We went to the one in NYC, yes be prepared to have deep pockets! DD saved her birthday and christmas money for the doll, i promised her a matching outfit, luckily she was happy for just matching tshirts! The add ons are endless, hair dressing, piercings etc! DD just wanted the doll of the year. They are very similar to the our generation dolls here and thos clothes etc fit. We spent a fortune in there!

The cafe was quite expensive, but as werent that hungry they let us have kids meals. The afternoon tea looked nice and wished we had gone for that! You get a free dessert too. Doll sits at your table in a chair and gets own cup and plate. Nice little touches!

I didn't find the caf expensive at all especially compared to the prices of the dolls. We went for my daughter's birthday last year despite her being 12 and we all really enjoyed it. They even have dolls you can borrow if you haven't brought one with you. I thought the food was surprisingly good as well.

My daughter loves her AG dolls, had her first when she was 6 and is now 8 and will soon be buying 3rd doll. We've visited Orlando shop a few times, book cafe on line it's an easy process, afternoon tea was good value. Its not a very big shop but still has plenty of stock. We are visiting the NY shop in Nov, I have never seen a shop like it, its huge,easy to spend a day there ( not that I'd want too).

As others have said it's not cheap but my dd loves them and plays with them all the time, we buy Our Generation accessories for them at home from Smyths also sold in Target in FL a lot cheaper than AG items.

The last time we visited Florida, DD2 was desperate to go and buy a doll. In the end we went a couple of times and ate in the cafe. The dolls and accessories are expensive but you have to put that at the back of your mind as DD2 was over the moon buying one having watched you tube videos before we went. The food in the cafe was good and I didnt find it expensive, DD2 brought her doll and they gave the doll a seat, DD2 absolutely loved it and when we went to NYC the following years went to American Girl again.

I'm a veteran of 3 years to the shrine of American Girl. DD is an AG addict, along with Our Generation, and the Walmart and Smyths versions. She has a bedroom full of them (mostly the cheaper versions). We have just been to AG in LA where her Wellie Wisher got her ears pierced in the Salon. Always managed to avoid the cafe, although the food looks pretty good.

Thanks for all the replies. Sounds like a must (albeit an expensive one! ). The things we do for our little ones 😄
