I visited this store as much for the experience rather than any strong intention to purchase. The store is vast, we decided to explore by visiting the top first. We were glad we did, there are a few eateries on the upper floors including McDonalds,...More

Depends on when you go. Early morning (8:30-9:00) time slot took just under an hour on Sunday, Dec 15. I would expect afternoon and evening waits to be MUCH longer.
