Terminal Information

London Gatwick

British Airways and Thomson Airways flights depart from Gatwick’s North Terminal. Virgin Atlantic and Norwegian flights depart from Gatwick’s South Terminal. Check in at both terminals opens four hours before scheduled long-haul flight departure times.

There’s a great selection of stores and food outlets in both terminals. Shops include Harrods, Cath Kidston and Ted Baker alongside the usual WHSmith, Boots and duty free. Passengers looking for a bite to eat before their flight will find various fast food outlets and a Wetherspoons pub. In the North Terminal, there’s also Jamie’s Italian and, in the South Terminal, Frankie and Benny’s.

Orlando International Airport

Orlando International Airport is located six miles southeast of Orlando city centre. The airport has two terminals, A and B. Virgin Atlantic and Norwegian flights arrive to Terminal A. British Airways flights arrive to Terminal B.

After you have passed through security and collected your baggage, a train ride (of just one minute) takes you to the main, central terminal. The main terminal has a range of facilities including currency exchange, free Wi-Fi, a food court and a selection of convenience stores.

Passengers can choose from a variety of transportation options to get from Orlando International Airport to either Orlando city or one of the resorts. Buses and taxis depart from outside both terminal exits. Rental cars are also available and car hire desks are located on level 1 of the terminal building.

Orlando Sanford Airport

Orlando Sanford Airport is located approximately 20 miles northeast of Orlando city centre. It’s the smaller of Orlando’s two airports. There are two terminals at the airport with Thomson Airways flights arriving to Terminal A.

Taxis and a shuttle bus to the city centre are available outside the terminal building. There are also a number of car hire companies operating from the airport. These include Advantage, Avis, Hertz, National, Thrifty, Dollar and Budget and their desks can be found inside the arrivals hall.

Practical Information

The US Visa Waiver Programme (VWP) means that passengers with a British passport do not need a visa in order to enter the country for tourist visits of up to 90 days. Passengers choosing to take advantage of the VWP need to register their journey with ESTA (the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation). This has to be done online at least 72 hours before your flight departs.

What to Expect in Orlando

Orlando is generally hot and humid. Seasons separate into summer and winter with very little variance in between. The humidity can lead to summer time storms with periods of heavy rainfall. Temperatures reach up to 35°c during the summer and don’t fall into single figures, even in the coldest winter months, so it’s usually a lot hotter in Orlando than in London.

Prices in Orlando are cheaper than in London. A mid-range three course meal for two will set you back around $50.00 and a regular cappuccino costs around $3.50. Transport is also considerably less expensive although, if you’re self-catering, you may find that groceries cost a little more.

Orlando is five hours behind the UK.
