Can anyone give me some directions or advice? For once, I'd like to find the North exit. Does it really exist?
Yes it does...Follow signs to either 436 or the Beeline/528...both of those are the NORTH exit...if you see Cell lot or 417, you on the wrong exit

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but does anyone know if the magical express works just one way? I'm going to be at Disney for a conference so transportation THERE isn't a problem, but I was wondering if they can take me back to the airport if I stay a few extra days for a mini vacation, or do I need to take a taxi??

I'm a newbie, so I can't post links. If you go to the wdwinfo.com/transportation/magical-express.htm

When I was testing an online reservation, it had a section titled "Ground Transportation", when I selected it the option for Magical Express came up and it gave the option of using it on arrival, on departure, or both. I'm in the same situation - arriving, renting a car to visit with relatives for a few days, then dropping the car off at a Disney site drop-off, staying at the resor, then using the Magical Express just for my return.

I saw the 9 car companies listed at the beginning of this thread, but wasn't sure if those companies have cars right on-site???
Please straighten me out.
Thanks so much,

I found it helpful to go look on the Orlando International Airport website.

Not a problem at all. You can book your ride back to MCO via DME when you get to your resort. Just be sure to do it a few days before you checkout. When you checkin is good...otherwise, you tend to forget to do it.

Limo Pick Up ?

We will be arriving from the UK on a Virgin Atlantic flight.
Our limo company told us that the pick up is at 8-A-Level 1.
How do I find this/where is it ?

You will arrive on level 3...take the tram from the gate to the main terminal. When you get off the tram, head to the escalators, or elevators, on Side A and go down to level 1. Level 2 is baggage claim, and level 1 is ground transportation. I'm going to assume that the '8' is a slot number outside. My concern would be how does your limo driver know you are there??? Do you have to call them and they will then drive over? Most limo drivers meet their passengers at level 2, baggage claim. Then they help them with luggage to the limo.

Hmmm, Tiffany has always met us at baggage claim. Maybe it has something to do with your not flying domestically. That whole customs issue maybe??

Recieved this from Tiffany,I guess all is well and they know the airport where as I don't.I'm sure all will be well. "Virgin Atlantic baggage is on the 1st floor, not 2nd floor, A is on the A side of the airport. level 1 on the A side carousel #8."

Need some information . I am arriving at Airside 4 gates 60-99 at MCO airport. I need to get to level 1, a15 side for the DoShuttle pickup.
In the main terminal(3) what escalator should I take on the A side of the terminal to get to A15 level 1?
The one by gates 100-129
or
by gates 1-29?

Thanks

It would be easier to take the ones right outside 100-129...so basically come out your shuttle, and go downstairs and outside...then turn left and walk down till you hit A15...all the signs are numbered...
