Main Terminal

MCO consists of 1 main terminal building, also now known as the north terminal complex, with a newly opened Terminal C.

The main terminal is split into A and B sides for airline ticketing, baggage claim, ground transportation, and parking. The facilities in the main terminal span 3 floors, with airline ticketing on level 3, baggage claim on levels 2 and 3, and ground transportation on level 1.

Passengers should check whether their airline is based on the A-side or the B-side, as this can determine the location of their most convenient parking lot or pick-up and drop-off locations.

A food court is located in the center of the terminal, and many shops are dotted around level 3 on either side of the food court. The Hyatt Regency hotel is accessible on level 4 with some of the room balconies opening out into the atrium at the east side of the main terminal.

The east and west sides of the terminal both have a security checkpoint that leads to 4 airside concourses where flights depart. Each concourse is connected to the terminal via an automated people mover (APM).

Terminal A — Concourse 1

Concourse 1 serves gates 1 to 29 for international flights. It’s located northwest of the main terminal and is accessible by passing through the west side security checkpoint and riding the automated people mover.

There are several shops (including duty-free) and restaurants located in Concourse 1, as well as an XpresSpa and The Club at MCO Lounge.

Once you disembark the APM on arrival at Concourse 1, you can take the left walkway to gates 1 to 9, the right walkway to gates 20 to 29, or straight ahead for gates 10 to 19.

The concourse has a baggage claim area and customs and immigration checkpoints, which passengers will be required to clear before heading back to the main terminal or onward to a connecting flight.

Terminal A — Concourse 2

Orlando International Airport Concourse 2

Concourse 2 is located northeast of the main terminal and serves domestic flights from gates 100 to 129. Concourse 2 is accessible by clearing the east side security checkpoint and riding the APM.

As you exit the APM, there is a small food court ahead, as well as access to gates 110, 111, 112, and 120. Gates 101 to 109 are to the left and gates 121 to 129 are to the right.

Terminal B — Concourse 3

Orlando International Airport Concourse 3

Concourse 3 is the other domestic concourse located southwest of the main terminal. As with Concourse 1, it has a central area where the APM arrives with some shops, restaurants, and access to 3 gate areas.

When arriving from the APM, gates 30 to 39 are to the left, gates 40 to 49 are straight ahead, and gates 50 to 59 are to the right. There is an XpresSpa in the center area of the concourse and a United Club near gate 45.

Terminal B — Concourse 4

Orlando International Airport Concourse 4

Concourse 4 serves gates 70 to 99 and also operates international flights from MCO. The central area of the concourse has a good selection of restaurants and shops, including duty-free, a Delta Sky Club, and The Club at MCO Lounge.

This central concourse leads to 3 gate areas with gates 70 to 79 to the left when disembarking from the APM, gates 80 to 89 straight ahead, and gates 90 to 99 to the right.

As with Concourse 1, international arrival passengers are required to clear customs and immigration within the concourse before proceeding with their journey.

Terminal C

The south terminal complex is a new 15-gate terminal, capable of handling narrow-bodied aircraft through to super-jumbos, and has a new Plaza Premium Lounge.

In addition to the new terminal, construction work is underway to build a large intermodal facility. The facility houses an APM station that connects passengers to the north terminal and parking garage C.

The intermodal facility will also house regional rail systems for the SunRail and Virgin Trains USA services, as well as additional ground transportation for public buses, shuttles, and taxis.

Inter-terminal Transport

Automated People Mover (APM)

Automated people movers transport passengers between the main terminal and the departure concourses within the secure area.

There are 2 lines based on the east side of the main terminal, shuttling passengers to and from Concourses 1 and 3, and the other 2 lines are on the west side of the main terminal, providing access to Concourses 2 and 4.

A new fifth line has recently been built that is outside of the secure area, shuttling passengers to and from parking garage 3 and new Terminal C.

Shuttle Bus

Passengers can travel between Terminals A, B, and C by riding the free shuttle bus that operates 24 hours a day. Pick-up and drop-off are from level 1 space B29 outside Terminal B and level 6 arrivals outside Terminal C.

Walking

Orlando International Airport Security Checkpoint

All departure concourses in the main terminal require passengers to ride the APM, with no pedestrian walkways between the concourses. Walking is only possible if your connecting flight is from the same concourse or the other concourse on the same side of the airport.

Each security checkpoint provides access to 2 concourses, so if you needed to connect from Concourse 3 to Concourse 1, then you could disembark the APM from Concourse 3 and take the APM straight out to Concourse 1. This excludes international flight arrivals, as these passengers are required to clear customs and immigration.

There are no electric carts at MCO, but passengers with mobility issues can request assistance through their airline.

These are the minimum and maximum walking distances inside the concourse:

Concourse 3467 feet/142 meters944 feet/288 meters
Concourse 4200 feet/61 meters600 feet/183 meters

Once passengers have cleared security in Terminal C, they can walk between all departure gates within the terminal.

MCO App

The MCO app is a handy resource to download for in-terminal navigation, security checkpoint wait times, ground transportation, and more.

Security and Customs at MCO

MCO has 3 security checkpoints — 1 on the west side of the main terminal serving gates 1 to 59 and 1 on the east side serving gates 70 to 129. The third security checkpoint is located in Terminal C on level 2.

In the top right corner of the airport’s desktop website (on mobile, it’s a short scroll down), the wait times for the security checkpoints are published and refreshed regularly, so you can plan how much time to leave when clearing security.

TSA PreCheck

MCO has dedicated TSA PreCheck lanes at both the east and west checkpoints open from around 4 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Approved applicants benefit from expedited screening, including not having to remove belts, shoes, or light outwear and being able to leave laptops and 3-1-1 compliant liquid bags in their carry-on.

The airport also has a TSA PreCheck Enrollment Center located on level 2 of Terminal B near baggage claim 23 that is open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Global Entry

MCO has Global Entry kiosks for expedited clearance of international passengers entering the U.S. The airport has a Global Entry Enrollment Center in Terminal B, on level 3 (near the food court) and MCO also participates in Enrollment on Arrival.

Mobile Passport

MCO allows expedited entry into the U.S. for eligible Mobile Passport Control app users.

Passengers can submit their CBP Declaration Form via the app on arrival and present their instant receipt and passport to a CBP agent for quicker processing.

CLEAR

MCO has CLEAR lanes at all 3 security checkpoints for eligible participants to use. CLEAR lanes and enrollment are available daily from 4 a.m. to 9 p.m.

MCO Airport Lounges

MCO has 7 lounges with most available to purchase a day pass, regardless of whether you’re a premium cabin passenger or an elite status frequent flyer. The only lounges where purchased entry is not possible are the Delta Sky Club and USO Lounges.

Hot Tip: Avoid lounge entry fees by seeing the best credit cards with lounge access.

Priority Pass Access

The Club at MCO Lounge accepts Priority Pass members with facilities including showers, refreshments including alcohol, TVs, and newspapers. You may already have a credit card that offers Priority Pass access so you don’t have to pay a day pass fee.

Airport Dining and Drinks at MCO

There are over 100 restaurants, bars, cafes, and grab-and-go food outlets at MCO. These are evenly distributed throughout the airport, with a good selection available in the terminal food courts, and also in the individual concourses.

You can view the restaurants that are available on the airport’s website.

MCO Airport Wi-Fi and Charging Stations

MCO gives passengers access to free Wi-Fi in all public areas of the airport. To connect, select “MCO Internet” from the Wi-Fi options.

In terms of location, you cannot beat the convenience of the Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport Hotel. There is no airport shuttle needed here because the Hyatt Regency is located inside the airport. The property offers an outdoor pool and a fitness center. There’s also a casual bar and grill, and a restaurant serving steak and seafood, along with a lobby bar and a sushi bar. Better yet, award nights at this Category 4 hotel start at just 12,000 points per night (off-peak).

The Marriott Orlando Airport Lakeside offers its guests more than just convenience. In addition to the complimentary airport shuttle, guests can enjoy the outdoor and indoor pool, fitness center, and 4 on-site dining options. Guest rooms are also equipped with both Netflix and Hulu to keep the whole family entertained. Planning to use points for your stay? With Marriott’s dynamic pricing, the points needed will largely depend on the time of year that you visit but should average around 30,000 points per night.

The Hampton Inn & Suites Orlando Airport at Gateway Village offers both close proximity to the airport and great amenities. Included with your stay is a free hot breakfast, outdoor pool, fitness center, free parking, and of course a free airport shuttle. For award nights, keep in mind that Hilton no longer publishes an award chart and uses a dynamic pricing model for all of its hotels. With that said, you can often redeem a free night at the Hampton Inn from 33,000 points per night.

If you’re looking to top off your points to stay at any of these options, see our guides on the best ways to earn more Hyatt, Marriott, or Hilton points.

Final Thoughts

With passenger growth of just over 6% from 2018 to 2019, MCO’s south terminal C has come at the right time, with the airport now accommodating over 50 million passengers annually. Although Terminal C was completed in September 2022, passengers are eagerly awaiting the new train station that will connect the airport directly to south Florida via Brightline. Services are expected to be ready in 2023 with future expansion plans also connecting the airport to Tampa Bay.

As there are currently no direct train links to MCO, the new train station will revolutionize travel between the Orlando area and the airport, and also to downtown Miami.
