The Orlando airport (MCO) is the hub for all visitors traveling by plane in and out of the greater Orlando area. With so many theme parks, attractions, and convention centers it is a very busy airport. Depending on the dates you travel, you may experience long lines at security.

Flight delays and cancellations are pretty common in Orlando, especially depending on the weather at the current time. Check out this post of chaos happening in the airport due to major flight delays and cancelled flights.

Terminal C will offer many security upgrades such as 100% automated screening lanes in TSA checkpoint and 100% facial recognition for international arrival and departures.
