Here's a reason for little ladies to get excited, especially those in the Orlando area.

American Girl, the wildly popular doll and doll lifestyle brand, now lives at The Florida Mall at 8001 S. Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando.

The 15,000-square-foot American Girl Orlando store, a must-visit destination for American Girl doll fans, is located in the popular “lifestyle area” of the mall, which includes Zara, H&M and XXI Forever (aka Forever 21).

If you’ve never been to an American Girl store, you can look forward to much more than a toy store experience. The all-things-doll wonderland offers a complete collection of all its famous American Girl dolls in Orlando, including the historical collection.

The brand started in 1986 and since has grown to become a must-love for all little girls who have a place in their hearts for dolls.

Whether it's one of the brand’s historic dolls from a collection that touches upon every decade, or a doll that looks like your own little girl, the brand is showing its dolls and little girls everywhere they can do anything from being gymnasts to actresses, teachers, big sisters and more.

Visitors can look forward to outfits, accessories and clothing made in both doll and girl sizes so your little doll collector can match her own outfit to her new favorite doll ensemble.

Along with an offering of American Girl books, an in-house Bistro and even a Doll Hair Salon (for cool stylings for your doll, as well as hair repair), there are plenty of reasons for children and parents to get excited about visiting American Girl Orlando.

If you’ve yet to add one of these beautiful dolls to your child’s toy collection, consider stopping into the store not just for the doll, but the entire American Girl experience. It will be a trip your little one won’t soon forget.
