Where: Landside and Airside Pros: sleep by the ticket counters Cons: more stuff landside than airside
Sleep at the ticket counters behind the chairs on the carpet.
The phones here are free local calls.
The Hyatt and fountain side is beautiful. Starbucks. Its dark but only hard benches to sleep on. You can go upstairs to the Hyatt to check it out/ride the glass elevator but I don't know if they'll let you sleep there. The food court in the middle is expensive but pretty good. Mcdonalds is open all night. People sleep on the padded benches in the food court but they do close it up sometimes to clean so sleep early. Hard benches in departures. The other side has a few couchy type areas with outlets. DunkinD. On this side lots of teams going through, lots of sports players.
The Car rental level is much warmer than Departures. People were sleeping on the floor inside the chairs configurations. The city bus side has security patrolling thr continued >>
(Guest Review) Main terminal pre-security has a great variety of restaurant and shopping options to kill time as well as comfy seating. Staff is generally pleasant but security can be insanely busy. Beware any cross-airline connections as crossing from the east side (Airsides 2 & 4) to the west side (Airsides 1 & 3) sends you through security again.
(Guest Review by Awfuldoesnotevendescribe) It literally was the worst experience ever. I always travel have been all over the world in so many airports and this one was my far my worst experience. The people who work there are so rude, especially people who work international. When people get off a flight and after immigration they have to pick up luggage, that's how it goes down for many people. This is the only airport where a single persona must carry out all luggage with no carts. What's wrong with people? What's wrong with this airport? I'd rather pay from a beginnig and keep my cart until I exist the airport. The people who work at this airport is so rude they literally closed the door only because it was the first time I had experienced something like that. I will never be returning to this airport.
(Guest Review) This airport is infested with cockroaches and there is a fat little cop from the Orlando Police Department who will show up on a segway and kick you out of the airside if you're stranded there for more than a couple of days. The cleaning crew is noisy and awful and constantly barking at each other in Spanish at all hours of the night.
(Guest Review) I have been traveling to/from MCO for last 5 years about 4 times a year and this is one of the best airports i have been on. Used to spend entire day sitting in those comfortable green chairs or buying a coffee and staying at the Starbucks entire day in those amazing leather arm chairs :D. WiFi is free and super fast and whenever i came across and asked a question airport staff was always ready to help in a polite way.
