Default Orlando rum suggestions

Heading down to Orlando for a family vacation in several weeks. I am hoping to take advantage of the wide selection of rums available in Fl that I have read about here to bring back a couple of bottles to add to my collection. Any suggestions of well stocked stores in the area would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I am sure Hank Koestner who is a long standing member here and who lives in Orlando can help you find your way around.

Just back from the Florida family vacation and am happy to report that I was able to meet up with our own esteemed Hank Koestner. What a great guy - he was able to direct me to some fine rums not available up here in the NorthEast, such as Ron Atlantico, Ron Botran 18, Ron Millionario from Peru, among others. Came home with a good selection packed amongst the Disney souveniers!

Thanks Hank, and others who gave imput in where to go. Josephs and ABC were great stores - even the nondescript 'liquor' stores everywhere had a pretty decent selection, but Josephs was a home run!
