Also is there a standard car isle at the Orlando airport or just mid size and full size. I have an upgrade coupon and I want a full size car so do I reserve a mid size or a standard?
No, you will have to go to the counter. And you will select from the appropriate row, NOT the EA.
No standard row, with an upgrade coupon for one class, go to the next lowest, so, if you want a full size, reserve a mid size.

I'll be arriving VERY late (after 11:30pm) on Friday, the 16th, and I'm a bit concerned about what I'll find on the aisle. If I get there and everything on the regular aisle is taken, will they let me have something from the Exec aisle?

Thanks,

KC

I have never seen that aisle empty and I have landed a couple of times after midnight!

If it is they may direct you to the midsize aisle or tell you take from the Executive .

However, it would have to be EMPTY to let you go to the Executive not "I don't like any of the options"

At the airports where I have seen the Aisle empty the Executive is always empty too....

No, and I doubt you will the EA empty. They are constantly "refilling" the aisle, 24/7/365.

Thanks - I'd hate to show up and not have a car waiting, you know?

Has anyone checked out the aisle at MCO recently? We are leaving in a few weeks and this is the first time we are choosing from the emerald aisle. Hoping for a nice selection

TIA

I see it 5 days a week. They have had some very nice vehicles, from midsize up to and including mini vans, SUVs, full size cars and some premiums. The selection varies everyday and according to the amount of vehicles rented.
It is impossible to say what will be there except that you are guaranteed a midsize car.

I've made a Premium reservation for a 6pm pickup this Saturday.

Should I be mentally preparing myself for a Grand Marquis, or will there be something nicer available?

I've gotten Volvos this year and last year an Audi and an Infiniti once each.

We flew into MCO last Weds.29th 9:00pm we went to the Aisle, we found
Yukons, Suburbans, a couple of Expeditions, and several crossovers. We picked a Chev. Traverse which only had less than 2000 mi on it.
The B side was full that night,so full that cars were being parked behind eachother, I never saw that before !

The vehicles you say parked that way were in the "overflow" lot. We park them that way cause it saves space. By the end of the night, that lot was totally empty.

Hard to say, but, I can tell you if you want something else, ask and we will see if it is available.

So I am enrolled in the Emerald Aisle program, but have never used it. We will be traveling to Ft. Meyers FL, in October, where we will rent a car and later drive to WDW.
Since I've never used this program before, can someone please tell me how it works? I have a family of 5, I'd assume we need an SUV or Mini van. Do I reserve one of those, and plan to pay that rate, and then if I get there and there is an SUV or mini van in the Emerald Aisle, can I request getting it for the Emerald Aisle(midsize) rate? Or how does it work exactly?

TIA to anyone who can help clear this up for me!

You reserve the size you need, which would be an Emerald Reserve Reservation assuming you log in the EC sign in area. You can try to change your rate, but, keep in mind it would be at a walk up rate, which is usually higher for the change. The Emerald Aisle rate is for midsize and you take the chance that what you need will be on the aisle.
The Emerald Club site pretty much explains the ins and outs of the reservation process and the club rules. If you have specific questions not covered there, give National a call and ask.
