I checked this website and found the list of places where it is unlawful to carry. This list is similar to that of Kansas, however KS also allows private businesses to prohibit CCW within buildings on their property, provided they conspicuously post a uniform, approved sign (black handgun in red circle w/red slash). Carrying past the posted sign could subject a person to being arrested and charged with a criminal act. What I have been unable to determine is: Does Florida have a provision in its law to allow private businesses and/or property owners to "post" their property? If so, do these "postings" carry the weight of law, i.e can a person be arrested for violating? Also am I required to inform LEO when carrying CCW, or only if asked?
Yes, KS and FL are reciprocal as far as each state honors the others CCW license. You're right about our Governor and AG, they fought tooth and nail to stop CCW in KS. We'll have a new AG after Jan. 31, since our current AG was forced to resign after details of his two-year long affair surfaced. That's the good part. The bad part is that the Governor gets to appoint the new AG.
I purchased a metal case with keyed lock (packaging says "meets TSA/Airline firearm guidelines").

Absolutely not; signage in Florida has no force of law other than simple trespass. This drives the Rodent (Disney) Corporate up the wall. People who descreetly and responsibly CCW inside of Florida Rodent properties all the time and don't get made. Universal Orlando also has a fine print no weapons policy posted on their website. If they don't catch you, no problem. If they do catch you, worst that can happen is you will be trespassed from the property. I carried my S&W 908 inside of Universal Orlando without issue last September. A word of warning, all Florida amusement parks do a cursory bag check, if you're going to CCW inside a Florida amusement park, carry it on your body and not in a bag and keep it absolutely concealed during your stay there. In additional to Universal Orlando I've been to Busch Gardens Tampa twice this last December. I kept it absolutely concealed and had a wonderful time. I also secured it in a locker while on thrill rides. Like it or not, there is a possibility of losing your firearm while enjoying such attractions so I aired on the side of caution. Even if you are carrying in a secure fashion on a thrill ride you won't be able to use it because of the lap/shoulder restraint bars to keep you safely secured to the seat during the ride with many modes of concealed carry plus the inability to use it effectively while experiencing 3+ G forces of such attractions.What I have been unable to determine is: Does Florida have a provision in its law to allow private businesses and/or property owners to "post" their property?

Bags secured by TSA approved locks are accessible via a TSA master key so TSA agents can open the lock. In accordance to 49 CFR 1540.111 use of such locks is a violation of Federal law as any TSA agent has a key to get into your firearm case. Under 49 CFR 1540.111 only the passenger(s) who lawfully own the firearm(s) are to possess the key or combination to the firearm case(s). TSA probably won't cite or arrrest you for it, but you are opening yourself up for firearm theft. If TSA needs to get into your firearm case, Federal law States they have to obtain the key or combination from you and inspect the firearm case in your presence then return the key to you upon completion of their inspection of the contents of your firearm case.I purchased a metal case with keyed lock (packaging says "meets TSA/Airline firearm guidelines").
