My daughter is flying out of MCO to ORD (direct). can we go with her all the way to the terminal or do we have to leave her at the TSA checkpoint?
Yes, since she is a child you can get a gate pass from the check-in desk.
Which cell lot do we use for picking up passenger on frontier
you can use either the North or South lot.
do we have any waiting area after arrival. can i reach terminal a to b inside. i will be waiting for my family for four hours there. Where should I wait and how can I go from terminal A to Terminal B to pickup my family
I don't intend too park so how do I know which terminal to pick up a passenger?
Orlando only has one terminal. The pickup areas are separated by airline. Make sure the passenger goes to the pick up area outside their airline's baggage claim.
Family 1 arrives at terminal A Gates 100-129. Family 2 arrives at terminal B at gates 30-59 . Time 1/2 hour apart. Hope to meet at airport. Please advise. Thanks
The Main Terminal is divided into Airside 2 (North) and Airside 3 (South) (some airlines list it as ASA-2 or ASA-3. There are two locations fr the baggage claim carousels: Level 1 for 8A & 28B; Level 2 for 1-16 and 20-32. My suggestion is to meet up at the Currency Exchange on level 2 near the baggage claim.
I just came back from Orlando, and I rented a car from the best agency ever. they were affordable, nice, and thier prices didnt change like all the rip off companies. If anyone wants to check them out, go ahead.
has anyone checked bag with firearm?
Anyone know the gate # for curbside pick up of passengers for Air Tran?
What are the rules and regulations to take alcohol to Canada
Orlando Airport gets high marks from passengers in general. They point out that arrivals & departures are well organized, and Airport employees are friendly and helpful, and they like the comfortable Monorail. While one traveler explains the terminal layout, others offer passenger pick-up choices and the food court & duty-free shop locations. They say that once you cleared Customs and Passport control, you have a choice of either taking your luggage with you on the tram (and getting out of the terminal faster) or putting it back on the belt and retrieving it at the baggage carousel. While one traveler likes the location of the rental car desk & facility, another points to off-Airport rental agencies offering shuttle services. Also, a passenger remarks that it may be better to do your shopping and eating before going through security, as post-security areas offer less options. Lastly, there's a tip how to access the hotel, and an alternative transportation to your cruise ship.
