Millions of visitors come to Orlando, Fl each year. The Orlando International Airport (MCO) is one of the busiest airports in Florida. It offers nonstop service to/from more then 100 destinations worldwide: Europe, Canada, South and Central America, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
Since getting in and out of the airport can be quite frustrating, you should arrange your transportation in advance. Last minute decisions can always lead to confusion, which are best avoided if possible.
1 - BUS
This is typically the least common choice of Orlando airport transportation since it is the least convenient. But if you're in no rush, don't have too much luggage and looking to save some cash, the local bus system will get you into the city or to the major resort areas for around $2 each per one-way trip.
Bus 111 operates from Orlando International every 60 minutes to the Sea World area, where transfers can be made to other routes - to Disney for example. Bus 42 also runs from the airport every 30 minutes (hourly Sundays) and serves much of International Drive. Other areas can be reached either by other direct routes or by making transfers (free).

2 - TAXI/SHUTTLE
Taxi is a very popular option. There are many companies that offer transportation services to and from Orlando Airport. Try to organize your transportation before you arrive in Orlando.
3 - RENTAL CAR
Renting a car is a very common option to get to your destination from the airport, especially for families who would like to explore the city on their own. MCO has several car rental companies that are accessible on-site (terminals A and B): Avis, Alamo, Budget, Dollar, National.
CONS: gas expenses, parking fees, paying for insurance, have to buy/rent a GPS or constantly use a map, not enough space for luggage (from/ to airport).
