Recommended stopover time at Frankfurt


We're hoping to go back to Orlando in August as we loved it this year and want to do stuff we never got to do last time as theres just so much even for 2 weeks. Anyways, we're thinking about flying with Lufthansa which has a stopover in Frankfurt of 2 hours 5 minutes. I'm just wondering if that would be enough time?

According to Lufthansa's website it's in the same terminal but as I don't know how big the airport is (or the terminals) and we have problems with walking if we rush. 2 hours might be more than enough but i've read a few posts that Frankfurt can have some big immigration delays at times? Plus I would like to factor in some time incase the flight we arrive on is delayed.

Just want to know what peoples experience is at Frankfurt. Any help would be appreciated.

I think 2 hours should be ok. Here are a couple posts, with some additional links.

2 hours should be fine. You will not pass immigration at FRA.
