The vast majority of towncar companies will allow you a 30 min grocery stop if you have booked r/t with them. Check with the company that you intend to use.

Does anyone know anything about executive VIP limo? We got a quote from them that sounds pretty good for 6 of us. Just wondering about reputation.

Looking to purchase some alcohol upon arrival to MCO before boarding DME, flying in from Toronto. Is duty free an option? And if so, where would it be located.

Family Converging on MCO

Hi all

I am a Disney Cast Member, and I will be flying from CA to meet my family that lives in Chicago. We will be meeting all together at MCO.

We are also on different airlines. I am on American, they are on Southwest.

I assume there is only ONE Magical Express area, and all passengers go to the same place? i am hoping that the busses dont pick up at each and every terminal for each airline.

if that would be the unfortunate case, I will send my family on without me. We only land within 10 minutes of each other.

Can anyone help me with this? We arrive on 1/17. Thanks

It's been a few years since we went (2011) but there was only ONE Magical Express area that all passengers went to.

Yes, DME uses just one area.....level 1, Side B. If anyone arrives on Side A of the airport, they will have to cross the middle of the airport and head to Side B, then go down to level 1...they arrived on level 3, and baggage claim is on level 2.
The only fly in the ointment could be if they didn't tag their bags with the yellow DME tags, and they arrive on Side A. If that happens, they have to go down to level 2, Side A..get their bags. Then, back up to level 3, Side A, cross over to Side B, and down to level 1 for DME. Not a big deal but something that you need to know...just in case.

In need of information departing from MCO. DSIL is flying SWA and using DME. She will check her luggage in at the resort. I want to give her simple directions from DME drop off, thru security, and to her gate (which she will get once at the airport). Does she?

-DME drop off: take escalator or elevator to 3rd floor (If this, which way doe she walk to get to security)
-Go thru security
-Take Tram to Airside
-Find her gate

She is flying alone and has never gone thru MCO. Thanks for your help!

For those that prefer Dunkin Donuts, it has finally opened at the Main Terminal at MCO. You can find it near gates 1-59. They are open till 10:30p, but I am hearing they are going 24hrs soon. They also are franchised owned, the prices are on par with stores outside the airport, and they accept DD cards.

Krispy Kreme will be closing soon as well.
