    Where are you going? Millenia, Altamonte, Florida Mall
    When?

    I haven't decided yet...

    I'm in Connecticut for the week but if I was in Orlando I'd probably go to the Florida Mall or Millenia. Probably because it's the easiest to get to from UCF; you don't have to deal with the stop lights on Red Bug Lake and Alafaya or University and Semoran to get to Altamonte.

    I'll be heading to Millenia but I'm not sure what time I want to be there for a 5p launch. Any ideas?

    I don't think iPads will sell as fast as say iPhones, so 4 would probably be more than safe imo.

    EDIT- And millenia tends to get a pretty good amount of stock for launches too.

    I was going to head to Altamonte just because I was thinking it would get less traffic then Florida Mall or Millenia. I've never been to any for a launch though, does anyone know if they get as much product in?

    I have been to millenia and altamonte launches. From my experience, Altamonte gets less product and will sell out quicker. Altamonte also gets less crowds, so if you get there an hour early it probably won't be an issue. Millenia however gets through lines MUCH quicker. I was way back in line there and got my iPhone 4 quicker than my friend who was at the front of the line at altamonte.

    Thanks for the heads up. I was planning on trying to get to either place by 3, I'll most likely head to milennia to be safe. I could always run to the best buy and target right there if apple sells out

    I'm really bad at estimating the size of this line. Maybe around 100 or so?

    It begins at the Apple store, snakes toward JCPenney, around the escalator, and back toward The Body Shop.

    Wow, tempted to head over there to BB instead! But with my luck, the line there would get crazy before I made it there.

    Apple will run out of stock here at Altamonte, I assume. A store employee is going around with an app asking which model each person wants. Where I am, they're already predicting to be out of certain models. Sounds like 16 and 32 wifi models in black will be gone. No AT&T 32s left either.

    Ugh.

    Finally got mine about 10 minutes ago. They'll likely be sold out at Altamnote soon...

    Does anyone know anything about the stock in the Apple Stores in Orlando?

    My parents will go to Orlando on Monday and stay there for two weeks. They are having their vacation in Florida and already visited several stores (Best Buy, Apple stores) in for example Miami, Fort Lauder dale, Key west etc. but all were sold out.

    So does anyone has tips for them so they can get an iPad 2 in an Apple Store?

    I went to the millennia mall store last Wednesday, got there around 7:30am, was about 100+ in line already. They must have had plenty that day, but some models were out of stock. I was able to snag pretty much what I wanted, may exchange for a bigger size though.

    Bought a 32 white Verizon and Black 16 wifi...

    Wanted 64 Verizon though.

    Noticed yesterday that the screen has quite a bit of light bleeding though so may just return until later anyway...

    Do you know if they had a lot of black 16gb wifi models? My parents are in Orlando for their city trip, and they want to bring an iPad 2 with them when they come back. They already went to Wall Mart, but they only had the bigger models (64GB).

    Its pretty much a given that they will sell out of thier previous days shipment the next morning, when you wait in line that long most people were just buying what was left... You will just have to check with them on a daily basis when they get down there.

    I struck out at the Apple Store multiple times this past weekend (although I would say to go to Altamonte over Millenia - lines are WAY shorter), but I ended up getting exactly what I wanted, a 64 GB ATT White, at Best Buy Altamonte (someone had held it and never showed up to get it, so I lucked out).

    No 16GB WiFi and 32GB WiFi at Apple Store (Milliminium Mall) and Best Buy Today. Too bad, hopefully Tomorrow a new chance to get one.
