    I don't have anything pre-ordered, so I was thinking like.. 5:30?

    There are two stores in Orlando, the first of which is literally 45 seconds away from me, but in a trendy upscale shopping mall, and the other, which is about 15 minutes away, in a touristy mall.

    Trying to figure out my best option here... lol

    Help me out.

    You should probably already be there... I'd go to the rich mall, only because you're going to be hanging around there all night and day so you might as well be somewhere clean.

    NOW! NOW! NOW! The earlier the better. I think I saw they are opening at 7:00AM. I think I also remember seeing that Apple stores would have more inventory.

    That's all? Wow...

    I'll be at the Apple store at 5:00am tomorrow. They should have plenty of stock for reservers such as myself and others.

    I strolled in at 6PM after work last year and was in and out in under an hour. Seems like there's less hype around the 3GS. I don't think it would matter but I'd definitely get there at least 30min before they open if you want to be sure to get on. Apple stores usually stock A LOT of phones.

    I was at Florida Mall at ~7:30 tonight. One schmo was in a lawn chair. No one else was there. Who knows how many insane people are in Orlando.

    I like sleep - so I was there to get accessories I can slap on the 2 phones that are being delivered to my home tomorrow. :D

    There also is the AT&T store and Best Buy fairly close to Florida Mall.

    Nice. Yeah, FLA Mall was the "touristy" one I was referring to.
    The BB near us only has 5 32GB 3GS's, lollllllll

    My gut tells me you would do better at Florida Mall than at Millenia. More money near Millenia...perhaps they would sell have more people in line. Also - accessories are more plentiful at Florida Mall Apple Store.
