iPad 2 near WDW?

Hello. First time posting here. My family and I are planning a trip to WDW for the last week of August and my brother-in-law wants an iPad 2 so he wants us to buy one for him. We've been to WDW some other times but never out of the "Disney" area. We're staying at Disney's Pop Century.
I wonder if there's a place near WDW with an Apple Store, or an electronic store which sells iPad 2. We don't have a car so driving is not an option (maybe a shuttle, a cab... ) and also I don't want to spend all the morning getting there just to buy an iPad, we're on a Disney vacation after all
Any information will be apreciated, thanks!
P.S: sorry if my English is bad, non-english speaker here :P

Welcome Darth!
In my opinion, your best option would be to call The Apple Store once you are in Orlando. They show to have two in town, but neither is really very close to WDW. The Millenia Mall is a nice mall on I4 and a "reasonable" cab ride.
Some Target, Best Buy and even Walmart stores also handle the IPad2, but stock is VERY spotty.
By the way, PoP Century is a blast, we stayed there a few times.
Enjoy your trip!

Just a random thought - would it be possible to order it through an on-line merchandiser and have it shipped to your hotel? I know others have shipped things from home to have them waiting for them at the hotel, it might work for an IPAD2?? Or if you can get it from a Wal-Mart you may be able to have it shipped to the nearest Wal-Mart and you can pick it up there? Just a couple of random ideas. Enjoy your stay!
