    All of you have been just fantastic. Fine tuning our return home (so sad), Wondering if the MCO is set up that you go through security before you come to the restaurants? Want to buy drinks with lids for the plane. Can't do it at my home airport. Thanks!

    Hi, Denise! Oh, yes! The Orlando International Airport (MCO) is one of the most flyer-friendly airports I've traveled. Once you arrive, you will proceed through check-in (if you haven't already done so through Disney's Magical Express), and then come to security almost immediately. It's a huge area that seems to corral a large group of people into several lines. Make sure you know which one you're standing in before you spend a lot of time there -- one is for business travelers traveling light, one is for families with small children, etc.

    Then, once you have made it through security, you will catch a train over to the terminals.  Make sure you know which airline and gate you're going to in order to get on the right train. (Yes, I have gone to the wrong terminal before not looking where I was going!) Once you get to your terminal, there will be several places to grab a quick bite or to sit down and have a table-service meal. There are also kiosks where you can grab a snack and a quick drink, and there are shopping opportunities, too. I hope this helps you plan!

    Thank you for the compliments! Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
