    BYOG (Bring Your Own Gum)! It is illegal to buy/sell chewing gum anywhere in this airport.

    Look for the "expert" line in security... a little hidden from the normal lines. Will get through really fast.

    Try the airplanes.

    Beware the "touron". You can spot them by ther mouse ears, overflowing luggage and theme park bounty, exhausted kids and the smell of churos!

    Security lines can be brutal at MCO. Be sure to allow plenty of time and bring your patience. You WILL see strollers in the expert traveler line in Orlando.

    Big thumbs up on the free wi-fi. It's a little on the slow side, but compared to the cheap bastards at JFK, this is great.

    If you're flying JetBlue, which is the only way to go, be sure to enjoy 36 channels of Direct TV and 100 channels of XM Radio!

    Security at MCO is a hassle. It is not the kind of airport where you can get there 15 minutes before the flight closes and still make it. There is always someone holding up the line. Allow 45+ mins.

    Taylor Michie · June 20, 2010
  • Courtney M.

    Check it at the outdoor kiosk, they rarely have a line and dont charge extra to check-in there

    Walk on the left, stand on the right. Don't stand in the middle of the path.

    The security checkpoint system here is a total disaster with no lines and people being put into herds of cattle. Give yourself ample time for the process.

    Play in the fountain in the middle of the airport. Security won't say a thing.

    If you are looking for Starbucks in the main terminal building, it is on the 3rd floor, on the A side wall, next to Hudson Booksellers, by the security check for gates 60-129. Dark Cherry Fraps rule!

  • PopWrapped!

    One of the great airports in the USA that offers free wi-fi! Leave plenty of time to clear security, as there is a LOT of international traffic here, due to Walt DisneyWorld and Universal Studios.

    PopWrapped! · March 12, 2013
  • Corey M.

    Plz arrive early for check in. Thanx

    Majority of food options are before Security, in the hotel or the food court. Only vegan options in the B Concourse is at Smoothie King (cookies, nuts, and smoothies without milk powder + soy protein)

    The starbucks in terminal A either takes a lot of pride in their work or are the slowest starbucks I have ever been too! You'll need 2 hours to get coffee and 15 to get through security.

    Melissa Wykle · January 18, 2010

    Not to business travelers in Orlando Airport: there is an Expert Traveler lane to get through security if you aren't traveling with a group or family/kids. You don't have to be Elite Access.

    Disney Magical Express service is awesome! Got on without making a reservation, as long as your staying at a select Disney resort. No hastles whatsoever.

    Oh my! Plan ahead and give yourself some time. The security lines at this airport sadly are unorganized and chaotic - at best. Good Luck... may the travel force be with you!

    get here early! slowest security in the country...

    Avoid traffic when picking up MCO arrivals by picking them up at the airport's departures lane instead!

    Worst security airport lines in the country. Get there earlier...no organization.

    Bring your own chewing gum. It's against airport policy for merchants to sell it. Apparently it causes maintenance problems...seriously?!

    Jeff Glasson · June 29, 2010

    If flying Southwest check in outside. Quick and Friendly staff!

    If in terminal A, southwest gate 102 has comfy leather seats with power outlets in everyone!! You're welcome!

    Chad Ferris · June 17, 2010
  • Dru D.

    If you are picking someone up late night, eg midnight, from terminal A, drive up to the "departures". It's dead up there and you can sit and wait in your car w/o getting yelled at every two minutes.
