Point of Interest
Airport
“The major airport for Orlando, this is a busy spot. It can feel quite large, especially if you arrive tired off of a long flight. Transiting through the airport, though, is usually quick and efficient. Security clearance can get busy, like many airports now, otherwise it's a straightforward gateway for Orlando. If you are collecting someone at the airport there is a new off-terminal car park with a quick tram connection to the airport, which is very efficient and easy to use and definitely less stressful than trying to collect kerbside.”
