Located approximately 20 minutes from International Drive — the heart of our tourism district — Orlando International Airport (MCO) works with more than 40 scheduled airlines to provide nonstop service from over 150 international and domestic destinations. What’s more, airfares at MCO are among the lowest of the 50 largest airports in the U.S.

If you prefer rail travel, Amtrak provides service via its station in downtown Orlando. Our commuter rail service, SunRail, connects key cities along our main corridor. And in the coming years, Virgin Trains and the Florida High Speed Corridor will bring express-rail service to Orlando.
Once you’ve reached Orlando, you can choose from a robust selection of public transportation, rental-car providers and even ride-share options such as Lyft, which can pick up and drop off at MCO, theme parks, attractions and everywhere else you’ll want to visit. Or, hop on the fun and affordable I-Ride Trolley, which runs on and around International Drive and costs a maximum of $2 per ride.
If you’re doing the driving, there’s no need to worry about getting lost, as several major highways offer convenient access to area attractions. If you need some help finding your way, our downloadable area maps are ready to guide you. Or, take advantage of Orlando Virtual Tour, a free service that invites you explore the destination before, during and after your arrival.
