Connecting Between Terminals for Lounge Access

Flights from MCO depart from 5 concourses that are accessible by riding an automated people mover (APM).

In Terminals A and B, the east security checkpoint provides access to Concourses 2 and 4 and the west security checkpoint to Concourses 1 and 3. Each concourse is served by a separate APM line, but once inside the secure area, passengers can move between the 2 concourses on that side of the airport without having to re-clear security again.

The newest line is outside of the secure area, shuttling passengers to and from parking garage 3 and Terminal C.

Best Credit Cards To Access Priority Pass Lounges

As far as credit cards that give you access to the Priority Pass lounges go, you’re going to have several great options depending on your needs. With 2 separate locations at MCO and over 1,400 other airport lounges worldwide, there will almost always be a Priority Pass lounge available to you no matter where you travel.

Our favorite option for a credit card that offers access to Priority Pass lounges is the Chase Sapphire Reserve®.

Another great card option that offers perhaps the best lounge access you can get from a card is the Amex Platinum card. The Amex Platinum card doesn’t just offer access to Priority Pass lounges upon enrollment, but also Centurion LoungesPlaza Premium LoungesDelta Sky Clubs (when flying Delta), Escape Lounges – The Centurion Studio Partner, and more!

Here are some other great card options that allow cardholders to visit Priority Pass lounges:

Final Thoughts

The lounge situation at MCO is pretty mediocre at the moment, with many of the lounges looking a little outdated, though each of the big 3 airlines does operate its own lounge, which is nice. The new Terminal C, which opened in September 2022, now provides an additional option with the new Plaza Premium Lounge.

Eligible passengers can access the various airline lounges, while any passenger can purchase entry to The Club MCO lounges. The Terminal 1 The Club MCO lounge is fairly modern with some great facilities and also welcomes Priority Pass members.
