I lived in Atlanta for 20 years so fairly familiar with the airport. After clearing customs you will encounter airline desks which will retag your luggage if it is not already thru tagged to Orlando. Would strongly suggest you already have purchased Delta or Airtran onwards flight to Orlando before departing London. After handing luggage off to new carrier, proceed thru security which gets you into E concourse and onward to connecting flight. easy process.
Word of caution, I was caught in March in ATL at 7pm with 80 minute immigration wait as many of the Caribbean/Mexico flights arrive. Even with that you will still be OK however, but it can be busy.
