Flying into Orlando is an easy feat. There are two main airports: Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Orlando Executive Airport (ORL).
Orlando International is a very modern and easy airport. It is equipped to handle a heavy stream of visitors. Tip: to go from Terminal A to B, go to Level 3. It is the easiest way to cross.
If you are from out of state and have an handicapped parking permit, you can get a temporary one by visiting the Motor Vehicles Services Offices.
If someone wants to greet you at the gate, airlines issue a pass at their own discretion.
The airport is a non smoking facility. There are no smoking areas provided as off 2003. For checking flights and other travel related information, please visit MCO's web site.
The Orlando Executive Airport caters to corporate travelers. Aircraft spotting, once an attraction for aviation buffs, has been closed due to heightened security. ORL's site can be found here.
Driving to Orlando from Tampa is a frequent choice for travelers who like to split their vacation between the beaches in the Gulf of Mexico and Disney World. The I-4 is the main artery to reach Orlando. Tip: do not get on the I-4 during peak times. Some sections are under construction and you can expect long delays. Tip: do not speed on this highway. Although it is pretty much a straight line, an invitation to go over the limit, it is heavily enforced and a pretty sure way to get your vacation ruined. The FHP does not go easy on people in a hurry!
