The journey from baggage claim and customs to the arrivals hall is made via one minute shuttle train. As you leave the customs area, you have the option to leave your baggage which will then be transferred to the arrivals hall for you, meaning you don’t have to carry it on board the train.
In the arrivals hall, you’ll find a range of food and drink outlets in the food court, a currency exchange and some shops too. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the airport building.
The airport offers a range of ground transportation options. Whether you’re travelling to Orlando city centre or to one of the area’s resorts, there are buses and taxis available from outside both sides of the airport. Car hire is also available, with desks located on level 1 of the arrivals hall.
British nationals do not need a visa if they are visiting the US as a tourist for up to 90 days. This is because the US has a Visa Waiver Programme in place.
However, if you are travelling without a visa, you will need to register your journey with the ESTA (Electronic System for Travel Authorisation) at least 72 hours before your flight leaves the UK. Registration can be done online on the official website and will require information about your flights and where you’ll be staying when you reach the US.
