Navigating Orlando International Airport

Many travelers begin their Disney vacations at Orlando International Airport.

Luckily, even though it is so large, this Florida airport is pretty easy to figure out.

All passengers arrive at either terminal A or terminal B on level three. There is an automated shuttle that will get you from the gate to the main terminal.

At this point, you can either head down to level two, where baggage claim is located, or down to level 1 for ground transportation (shuttles, rental cars, buses, etc.).

Since we stayed at the Disney Resorts on our last trip to Florida, we took advantage of the Disney Magical Express bus service. This turned out to be a huge time saver because we were able to bypass baggage claim altogether and go straight to the Disney Welcome Center.

Just an FYI, the Welcome Center is located in the main terminal building on side B, level 1, of the Orlando Airport. There are no signs which makes it a little confusing. But when we were unsure we asked airport personnel and they were able to direct us.

As far as our bags were concerned - as promised, they turned up in our room at our Disney hotel a few hours later.

Here is a bird's eye diagram of the airport (MCO) that may be useful in getting a lay of the land.
