Amenities and Services in Orlando Airport

Listen, we know you want to spend as little time as possible in the airport. After all, nobody goes on vacation to hang out in the terminals of their destination’s aviation centre! But sometimes you need to kill some time, whether it be an hour before boarding or longer due to some unfortunate delays.

Now that you’ve got a handle on car hire in Orlando Airport, here’s a bit of a guide to some of the amenities and services offered there.


Perhaps the most important feature of an airport (or pretty much anywhere in which you’ll be waiting for longer than, oh, 60 seconds) is whether or not it offers Wi-Fi and, if so, how much it costs. Those travelling to the City Beautiful will be happy to know that the airport does, in fact, have free Wi-Fi! Just search out “MCO Internet” on your phone and connect.

Security Wait Times

Checking out the security wait times on the Orlando Airport website can help you plan your trip Source:

Whether you use this feature before you arrive or once you rock up to the check-in desk, the Orlando Airport home page has a section that shows you current security line wait times for certain gates. While these are by no means scientific or guaranteed to be precise, it can give you a bit of a heads up in regards to what you have in store.

Passport Control

One of the most frustrating aspects of travelling internationally can be the passport check. But Orlando Airport does its best to make this potentially lengthy, but incredible important, process that much smoother. There are a few different methods you can use to try to make the process easier for you and your family.

Mobile Passport is an app-based system that is in use at Orlando Airport. Global Entry is a way for those who have been pre-approved to speed through customs. And the automated passport kiosks in Orlando Airport don’t require any sort of early sign up and can still make your wait shorter.

It’s incredibly important to remember that not all travellers will be eligible for these programs. It’s also vital to remember that, if you have any questions, play it safe. Speak to somebody at customs and have them point you in the right direction if you’re unsure about anything.

Wall Art

You won’t find standard airport décor when walking the terminals in Orlando Source:

While most wouldn’t think of airports as places to turn for artistic excellence, pieces adorning the walls of the Orlando Airport play a key role in the aerial precinct’s look. The different mediums have been commissioned by artists from near and far. So keep your eyes peeled when looking at the walls, ceilings, and floors of the airport for an eyeful of art!

What to Eat and Drink in Orlando Airport

Maybe you want a quick bite to eat before you set off on your adventure or in the lead-up to boarding to head home. Or perhaps you want to sit around for a bit and watch the game while you wait. Whether it’s a little pick-me-up or a longer session, Orlando Airport has enough options to please the millions it services every year. Here’s a bit of a rundown of what you can eat and drink in Orlando Airport.

Fast Food

Craving Hungry Jacks? Seek out a Burger King; it’s the same thing! Source:

Sometimes when you’re travelling you just want something that you know you can trust. When it comes to fast food, you certainly know what you’re going to get. Orlando Airport has its fair share of fast food staples, including but not limited to Burger King (think Hungry Jack’s if you’re an Australian), McDonald’s, and Chick-fil-A; sandwich spots Quizno’s and Jersey Mike’s; Mexican outlets Chipotle, Moe’s Southwestern Grill, On the Border, and Qdoba; Asian eateries Panda Express, Manchu Wok, and Asian Chao; and quick sweet treat spots Auntie Anne’s, Carvel, and Coldstone Creamery.

The short story? If you’ve got a craving for something quick, chances are you can find it somewhere in Orlando International Airport.

Home Team Sports

As you might guess from its name, Home Team Sports has you covered if you’re looking for a screen on which to watch some sport. With plenty of viewing angles from which to choose, you can pull up a stool and down a few pints while munching on some pub grub. This place fulfils its role as the big airport sports bar with ease.


For a more refined dining experience in Orlando Airport, check out the Hemisphere restaurant Source:

Hemisphere is a step up from some of the more standard fare you’ll find in the Orlando Airport terminal halls and better suited for those looking for a relaxed sit-down meal. If you’re in the airport early, you can dine on a nice breakfast that will let you unwind a bit before hours of travel. Taking off after dinner time? Your main meal options include a range of international dishes, including steaks and seafoods. Hemisphere is located on the ninth floor of the Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport and offers a more upscale dining experience before you even make your way through security.

Outback Steakhouse

Missing home a bit too much? Pop into Outback Steakhouse for an over the top American view of all things Australian. Just don’t go expecting Lamingtons and a sausage sizzle, OK?

Shopping While you Wait in Orlando Airport

Although we know that taking care of car rental at Orlando Airport can be a quick and painless process with DriveNow, unfortunately we can’t help make sure all the aeroplanes depart at their scheduled times. Annoyed because you’re facing a delay with no end in sight? Take out some of your frustration with a bit of retail therapy! Here are some of the finest retailers and other shopping spots in Orlando Airport.


With across the US, Inmotion Entertainment hooks up thousands of travellers a year with the electronics they need for a smooth trip Source:

With as much as you rely on your mobile phone and computer for not only connectivity with others but also sheer entertainment, you want to make sure both are fit and firing and that you have all the necessary accessories and equipment to get the most out of them.

Luckily for you there are a few options in Orlando Airport if you need to pick up some electronics. Inmotion Entertainment, Brookstone, Tech on the Go, Sound Balance and vending machines spread around the airport can give you the chargers, headphones, and other electronics that can make your travelling experience all the smoother.


It can be hard to relax when you’re stressing about hitting connections and getting everything home in one piece. So don’t be afraid to call in the big guns and get some help from professionals! There are four XpresSpa locations throughout the airport, as well as a Terminal Getaway Spa, that can help you unwind a bit and get your body and mind ready for the hours in the air ahead of you.

The Finer Things

Don’t let the clean white design fool you; The Gem Collection is full of vibrant, colourful options Source:

Want to buy yourself something particularly nice so you can have a special memento with which to remember your trip to the US? The Orlando Airport can help you put any spare luggage space you might end up having to good use with a collection of quality retailers full of sound souvenir options.

Timeless Travel can help you stay on time (something that’s always good when on the go!) and looking great with a stylish watch. The same can be said for Swatch, which showcases a collection of the famous Swiss timepiece maker’s ample selection. Swarovski can give you the chance to bring a little taste of Austria back to Australia; choose from a huge range of dazzling crystal pieces to find jewellery to help make your look sparkle.

Add a little something new to your wardrobe before you pack up and set course for your next port of call.
