    It’s been different the last two years.. for the 6s launch.. the line was outside in the parking lot near M&M entrance.. this past year for the 7. They let us camp inside.. and the line was extremely long! Recommendation. Get their at midnight at the latest!! It’s the busiest store in Orlando...
    I personally recommend mall of millennia.. but Florida mall has the most stock

    My friend who is a sheriff will be working the detail there tonight into tomorrow morning. In the past yes they let everyone fall in line and camp out. But here are the details this year:

    The parking lot of the Florida Mall (in the area of Macy's and M&M store) will be roped off and no one will be able to enter or park. At 5:00a they will let everyone enter and fall in line outside the mall entrance near the M&M store. Then at 7:00a they will open the mall doors so that everyone can then now form a line in front of the Apple Store itself. Then by 10a the doors open and everyone can enter. In the past, Apple opened their doors early (around 9:15a) so maybe they'll do the same for this launch.

    Is Mall of millennia the same? Anyone call stores to verify all the info?

    Florida Mall is 5a. Millenia and Altamonte is 6a. Law enforcement presence everywhere. For ex: people park at Krispy Kreme or Devry parking lot and wait. Or @ IKEA then make the mad rush towards the mall to park and run for the line. Some people are even already on foot and run towards the mall and leave their cars parked where they are. Its definitely madness

    Historically, 4 AM would result in you not getting a phone. With the shift in process at Florida Mall this year though, 4-5 seems like the right time to show up.

    I camped there a couple years back. This sounds like absolute madness now.

    Some guys were trying to organize the line before the doors opened. There were 150 people at 5:10 am or so, I have no idea how many people got there after that.
