Right, this is what I was thinking as far as the retail outlets which attract a lot of international shoppers (South Americans, in particular it seems). And malls like Sawgrass and Aventura are really big malls as it is. But I guess the developers must see potential for more retail when coupled with a big and new attraction, like an amusement park, like you say.
