The Orlando Fashion Square Mall is a two-story indoor shopping mall located in Orlando, Florida. It is anchored by Dillard's, JCPenney, and Macy's

The mall is close to Downtown Orlando. It opened in 1972 and was built on to an existing Sears store, which opened in 1963. Burdines and Robinson's opened as anchors at the mall in 1973. A free-standing movie theater was built on an outparcel in 1975 which existed until 1989. In 1988, Robinson's became Maison Blanche, who then built a new store behind the original two years later. The previous store would become more inline mall space connecting the new store with the rest of the mall. Maison Blanche became Gayfer's in 1992, which was then sold to Dillard's in 1998. J.C. Penney built a new store at the mall to replace a store at Winter Park Mall in 1993. An interior renovation completed in 2002. In 2004, a new movie theater owned by Premiere Cinemas opened in the mall. Burdines became Macy's in 2005.[2]

The mall is serviced by Lynx buses (links) 23, 28, 29, and 104.[3]

In 2013, PREIT sold the mall to UP Development, Inc. for $35 million. The new owner has plans to redevelop the mall.[4] One year later a new Bowling alley was added and the Movie Theater was rebuilt.

In 2014, Dillard's converted its store to a Dillard's Clearance Center, and closed its second floor.[5], and lost several stores such as Bath and Body Works, Victoria's Secret and The Limited

On August 9, 2016 Sears announced their intentions to close their store at this mall. The Sears store was demolished in April 2017. Floor & Decor is being built to replace Sears.[6]

In mid 2017 the diner in the front of mall was demolished.
