Getting to and around the city of Orlando

How to get from Orlando International Airport (MCO) to the city center?

A former military base, McCoy Air Force Base (MCO) was redeveloped to create one of the world’s busiest international airports, in order to serve one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.  Distance to the city center is 6 miles southeast of Orlando.

Once your flight to Orlando lands, the AGT train station will transport you to either Terminal A or Terminal B for Baggage Claim A or Baggage Claim B respectively.

Once you’ve picked up your luggage, you’ll find all shuttle vans and buses, taxis, and rental car services on the Ground Transportation Level, which is Level 1. The local metro system, LYNX, also runs services between the airport and Orlando.

It will also take you back to the airport for that last touch of Floridian magic at the end of your holiday.

Getting between terminals

Disney World brings out smiles in the young and the young at heart. You don’t need kids along for the ride to have a good time at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom. If you’re more the Harry Potter type, check out Universal Studios. Disney isn’t the only place to pretend you’re a mermaid. Visit SeaWorld to come face-to-face with your favorite aquatic animals and dream of being a mermaid.

Not interested in theme parks? Perfect! Orlando offers a lot more culture and entertainment than you might realize. The Orlando Museum of Art houses American, African and ancient American art. The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art in nearby Winter Park features more Tiffany glass that you can imagine — it’s the most complete collection in the world.

Tips for your stay in Orlando

  • Make a sightseeing plan before you get off your flight to Orlando—there are so many possibilities. Purchase theme park tickets online to avoid standing in line at many of your favorite attractions. If you need to buy tickets after you arrive, get to the park an hour before it opens to stand in line for tickets.
  • Check out the Orlando/Orange County Convention and Visitors Bureau website.  It provides international guides and maps, advance ticket sales, including Magicards, links for booking hotel rooms and transport, information on Orlando nightlife, and restaurants, as well as links to goings-on at the theme parks in and around Orlando.
  • To beat the crowds at Disney World, use the FastPass system to schedule a ride time rather than wait in line. For all parks, start at the far end of the park and work your way back to the entrance. Also, go to the big rides first so you miss the mid-afternoon rush.
  • Other attractions you might want to visit are Wet N’ Wild, Orlando’s most popular water attraction; the Kennedy Space Centre, just an hour’s drive from Orlando; and Busch Gardens, also an hour’s drive from Orlando.
  • Orlando is hot and muggy in the summer and mosquitoes and no-see-ums (tiny bugs with a big bite) love that weather. Make sure to pack or pick up insect repellent, especially if you’ll be near the water.
  • Don’t forget to pack or pick up sun lotion with a high SPF rating (30 or higher), a wide-brimmed hat, and sunglasses.
