Orlando International Airport (MCO)
If you are flying to Orlando then you will want to fly into Orlando International Airport. The airport three digit code is MCO. Orlando does have another international airport which located in Sandford. Often times you can find flights into this airport 5% to 10% cheaper but the Sandford Airport is almost an hour away from Disney World. So the extra money you saved on the flights will be ate up in transportation cost to the Disney World area.
At the Orlando International Airport, most domestic flights utilize the A and B concourse. Once you get off the flight take the tram over to the main hub area and proceed down to level two…this is where the baggage claim area is located. Once you get your bags you will want to proceed down another level to level 1, this is where most rental car companies are located. If you are not renting a car and you need a shuttle bus ride to the Disney World area on level one you will see a Mear’s Shuttle attendant. Here in Orlando, Mear’s is the largest cab and transportation company. All you have to do is tell the attendant where you are going and they will direct to the correct cab or shuttle bus.
Please note, if you are staying at a vacation homes near Disney World or one of our Disney World condos you should rent a car. None of the vacation home communities offer free shuttle service and the cost of a cab to the Disney World parks everyday will get quite expensive.
