Airport travel guide for travel tips to make your trip to Orlando a smooth ride There are two airports which handle
commercial passenger traffic in the Orlando area: Orlando International
Airport or MCO is the main airport for the Orlando area. The second Airport is
Orlando Sanford International Airport or SFB is located in Sanford,
Florida around 30 miles from downtown Orlando SFB operates low-cost airlines
and have limited choices in airline carriers. In this video will only cover
Orlando International Airport or MCO and it’s ground transportation. You can find
more information on both airports on our website hipfig.com. MCO has one main
terminal and 4 satellite terminals. All flights arrive at satellite terminals
also called air side terminals. Satellite terminals are connected to the main
terminal by the automated people mover or APM train also known as the
shuttle Once you disembark the plane at MCO,
domestic passengers or passengers from Canada who have gone through US
Immigration and Customs in Canada through preclearance should follow the
signs to the Terminal and Bag claim which will take you to the APM train station in
that satellite terminal. Arriving international passengers should follow
the signs to passport control and immigration. MCO uses automated passport
control kiosks and manned counters in immigration to help speed up the process
After clearing immigration, all arriving international passengers should pick up
their bags and clear customs. If Orlando or vicinity is not your final
destination and you have a connecting flight after clearing customs drop your
bags at the transfer belt for your next flight. If you Orlando is your final
destination, once you clear customs you can either place your bags on the
baggage belt for transfer to the main terminal baggage claim A or B, or you can
keep your bags with you. If you have large bags we suggest putting it on the
baggage belt to get to the main terminal Go to the APM station. All arriving
passengers need to take the APM train to get to the main terminal where baggage
claim and ground transportation is located. The APM trains arrive and depart
frequently. Once on board it will take just a few minutes to get to the main
terminal. The main terminal has three levels. The APM train arrives on level
three of the main terminal. On level three you’ll find a currency exchange
counter if you need one. Hey did you know that there’s a hotel inside the main
terminal? Well you do now. The Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport is
located right in the main terminal. I’s located in the center separating side A
and side B Baggage claim is located at a level 2
Follow the signs down to baggage claim side A or B depending on your baggage
claim area. If you have no baggage to claim follow side B signs to ground
transportation at level two Once you pick up your bags follow signs
for ground transportation to level one Please note that curbside pickup by
private cars and ride-sharing providers such as uber and lyft are on level two
on the baggage claim level. Escalators elevators and stairs are available at
all levels. The easiest and most convenient way to get into Orlando are
taxis. Taxi are located on sides A and B of the main terminal on level one. They’re
located at Lane parking spaces on the a side A 5 to 8, and A 22 to 25 on the B side they are located in lanes B 5-8 and B 30-34. Unlike
other airports, MCO also offers large taxi vans which can carry up to nine
passengers. Taxi should charge the same rate regardless of the number of
passengers. All taxi cabs picking up at the airport are regulated by the city of
Orlando’s vehicle for hirer ordinance which requires fares to be determined by
a taxi meter so make sure they use one If you’re planning to take a shared
shuttle they’re located on sides A and B of the main terminal on level one at
parking Lane spaces on A 19 – 21 and on the B 27 -29
Shared shuttles are a cheaper option than taxis that do offer a door-to-door
service but they have many stops. Free Airport Hotel shuttles are located on
the B side of the main terminal on level 1 at commercial lanes B 39. All other
Orlando hotels or resort shuttles including Disney’s Magical Express
buses are located at lanes B 42 42 through 47 towards the end of the
terminal. If your hotel offers our free shuttle from the airport

signs on the ground-level main terminal side B. Disney’s Magical Express buses are
