We arrive from Nassau at 2:30 pm need to connect for a 5:30 flight on Alaska air. Do we have enough time? Do we have to go through customs at Orlando? We have to pick up bags and then check in. What is fastest way to connect?
You pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Nassau. All you have to do in Orlando is claim your bags, re-check them, and go through security. You have enough time.

I am flying into MCO on sat around 19:20 pm and then have an onwards connection via spirits at 22: 30 from MCO to Atlanta. I realise I will have to do immigration, pick my bags, check in my bags at Spirit and then go through security.

My question is at that time ona weekend would three hours be ok to go through all that?

Also what terminal do I land in, where do i go about picking my luggage and is do I change terminal for Spirits or need to take an airpirt shuttle to change terminals?

Yes, that should be enough time. Orlando only has one terminal building. The gate areas are connected to the terminal buildings by a train.
Am arriving on a southwest flight (terminal A) and have a quick flight out on Delta in terminal B. Do I have to go out of A side and go back through security on B side?
Do you have checked bags? If you don't have checked bags you can just take the train to the main terminal, walk to the train to the Airside 4 train, and take that train out to Airside 4.
Great thank you!
I arrive with carryon only on SW at 10:40am Term 2, leave at 12:15 on American Term 4 - is that enough time to get back thru security with tsa pre check?
Airsides 2 and 4 are connected behind the same security checkpoint. All you have to do is take the train to the main terminal, walk to the train to Airside 4, and take that train out to Airside 4. You have plenty of time.
We are coming in from buffalo southwest later and then taking JetBlue to Santo Domingo tonight. Same side terminal airport opposite ends though. Think 2hrs in between flights ok? Thanks
Southwest and Jetblue do not use the same airside. Do you have checked bags. With no checked bags it's probably enough time. With checked bags it's a bit risky.
I am flying to MCO with aeromexico from Mexico City and have 2 hours to connect with EK to Dubai. Both flights are in the dame ticket. Do I have time to get my next Flight? I red that Both airlines are in terminal A one in gates 1-29 and Emirates gate 99.
That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly. YOu have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate.
Thank you!
I am flying in using Southwest to MCO and then I have the international connection(Emirates) in 3 hours. Will this time be enough to catch my international flight? Do I need to claim my baggage and check them right there to Emirates or I have to carry the luggage from one terminal to other? Thank you so much...
That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time. Orlando only has one terminal, so you have to go to the baggage claim, claim your bags, bring them up to the departure level, check them with Emirates, and go through security and to your departure gate.
Hi, I'm flying with Virgin Atlantic to MCO and getting a connecting flight to Detroit. I've always taken a non stop flight but this wasn't possible this time. Can anyone tell me what I have to do as soon as I exit my plane? I'm new to flying on my own so I'm a bit anxious.
Do i need to pick up my bag again?
Security? Etc..
I have an hour and thirty minutes inbetween.
Thank you.
*Also forgot to mention that my connecting flight to Detroit is with Delta.
You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, go through security and to your departure gate. You have just enough time.
Flying into MCO with Virgin Atlantic from the UK and out 2 hours later with Delta to Atlanta. Do we change terminals ? First time we have done s connrcting flight through MCO.
The flights will be in two separate gate areas and you will have to go through security after clearing US Customs. However, technically, Orlando only has one terminal.
So it’s just clear immigration, pick up our bags and drop them off again before going to the Delta gate for the Atlanta flight all under one roof?
Well, you will have to go back to the main terminal building to go through security.
My daughter is currently flying a United flight from Dulles, connecting with Silver in Orlando. This is one reservation booked through United. The flight from Dulles is 45 minutes late leaving her only 30 minutes to catch the connecting flight. Will she have to clear security again?
I believe United an Silver use the same gate area in Orlando.
