    Here are some basics on accessibility at Orlando International Airport!

    Airport Code: MCO | Telephone: (407) 825-2001 | Website: https://orlandoairports.net/

    • Accessibility:
    1. Accessible Toilets (including multipurpose unisex restrooms)
    2. Adult Changing Table
    3. Multiple Elevators
    4. Moving Walkways
    5. Optional guided assistance to/from your flight
    6. Wheelchairs available (for use in the airport)
    7. Electric cart pick-up
    8. Navigation app for smartphones (see Maps below)
    9. Parking Lot Spaces for people with disabilities (with discounted parking fees available)

    (NOTE: to request these services you can contact your airline, call ahead, or see the nearest information counter or concierge).

    • Perks: Dozens of shops, dozens of dining options, various services throughout the airport, very close to Orlando, very close to multiple amusement parks, and a variety of transportation options to/from the airport. The airports designs/modifications and staff member training are centered around the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for accessibility (Details here: https://www.ada.gov/2010ADAstandards_index.htm).
    • Challenges: [Minimal] This airport can take some time to navigate due to its layout. Language barriers are very minimal, with multi-language written information and multilingual staff members (the official website supports many languages besides English).
    • Access to/from Airport: Approximately 20-minute car ride from downtown Orlando or Walt Disney World with easy access to Taxi, Limousine, Local Shuttles, Car rental, and Buses (Note: Wheelchair accessible van-style Taxi/Car rental with lift may be limited and may not be available without request).
    • Maps: https://orlandoairports.net/getting-around-mco/ In this link, provided by Orlando International Airport Official Site, you’ll find a map of the Facilities (in English; that contains the majority of the Accessibility options listed in the section above) and a link to a smartphone navigation app (may not be available for all phones/networks). Even with a map in hand, new places can get you turned around, so if this happens, ask the staff for help to get you on your way.
