Orlando International Airport (MCO)
Orientation and Maps
(Orlando, Florida (FL), USA)
Home to Florida's most famous vacation resort, Orlando is best known for being home to the enormous Walt Disney World (WDW), but there really is much more to the city the Mickey Mouse. Away from all the tourism, castles and rollercoasters and theme-park attractions, Orlando features a series of small and charming towns, a number of large lakes and even some springs suitable for swimming.
Orlando International Airport (MCO) is the city's biggest and busiest airport, after both the Sanford Airport (SFB) and nearby Executive Airport (ORL). Located on the southern side of the city, Orlando International Airport is a vast complex and stands next to the Martin Anderson Expressway / Bee Line Expressway US-528.
