Taxis, shuttle vans, private car pick-ups and ride-share services such as Uber and Lyft are available just outside the door on the baggage claim level at both Orlando International Airport (MCO) and Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB).
•    Many Orlando hotels and resorts offer complimentary airport shuttles. Check to see if yours does before leaving home.
•    Guests staying at select hotels at Walt Disney World® Resort and Universal Orlando Resort™ can take advantage of complimentary, roundtrip service from and to Orlando International Airport.
•    Drivers using Orlando-area toll roads should note the “Exact Change Only” and “Change and Receipts” toll lanes, as well as those marked for use only by vehicles with SunPass and E-Pass transponders. Tollbooths do not accept credit cards, and transponder-only lanes will not accept cash.
