    They are both going to be mad houses. You could try Altamonte Mall... it will probably have less people, since it's a less popular mall.

    I've mine reserved at Florida Mall. I'll be there early I guess as I'm staying the night before in the Florida Hotel which is attached to the Mall. In case anyone wonders, my work always puts me in that hotel, I'm not staying there especially for the iPad haha :)

    Hopefully I'll sleep that night haha!

    Florida Mall would be the closest for me. I'm thinking of heading there about 7am.

    I have mine reserved at Altamonte Mall, and I live in Clermont, but I think the altamonte store will be full too because is the only store in the north of Orlando. I will be there very early even thought I have mine reserved.

    I was hoping to find someone who wasn't going to pickup their reservation.

    No, the Altamonte Mall was destroyed. I don't know what you're talking about. ::walks away whistling::

    I'm getting ready to head out soon. Going to drive-by a BB first, just to see if there is a line.

    Just saw the news, Millenia is opening the parking lot at 7am, and they are turning people away until then.

    Yeah, the news said and showed them turning people away from actually going into the parking lot. After BB, not sure where to head.

    I'm on vacation in Disney. Was thinking of taking a cab over. Is it worth it?? Does anyone know if the lines are huge or if I even have a chance of getting one? How far is the mall from the Disney resorts?

    I live in Clermont, and I reserved one for Millenia and plan to go pick it up if my shipment doesn't arrive before 3:00 p.m. it was a nice safety precaution but I much rather just get my iPad in the mail to avoid the lines and having to return the one that will come to my house.

    Best Buy ended up actually getting 80, 20 of each size. Tickets were handed out and everyone in line got one. They had limited accessories like only 20 cases otherwise.
