I will be flying Delta and my friend Southwest. Will we be able to meet at baggage claim? I see that Delta and Southwest land at different terminals so not sure if baggage claim is separate.

Yes, everyone has access to the baggage claim areas. It’s just the gates themselves that are in the secure zone.

You could also meet in the food court which is right between terminals A & B.

The two "terminals" in the original building at MCO are really just the A and B side of the same single building. There is a baggage on each side, so your bags are probably coming in on opposite sides. (A few airlines are listed in one terminal, but still use baggage claim in the other.)

Depending on who arrives first (and assuming you both have checked bags), that person could pick up their bags, go back up one level, cross the terminal, go down to baggage on the other side, and wait near the appropriate carrousel. (or if they don't have bags, just walk down to the other baggage area,)

If the second person arriving doesn't have bags, you could do as Vic suggested and meet by the McDonald or Starbuck, etc. in the food court.
