Orlando Airport Review

by web-administrator (January, 2015)

Pros: -
Cons: -

(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.

Orlando Airport Review

by web-administrator (March, 2015)

Pros: -
Cons: -

(Guest Review) Our flight got delayed 12 hrs, so we (a group of 20) were stuck in the airport. Overall it was just average. The airport is clean and has plenty of shopping. But I found the sleepability somewhat lacking. While it was quite in the baggage areas at night, there were no good places to sleep.

Missed Connection to Puerto Rico

by dayost (June, 2014)

Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Airside
Pros: Plenty of outlets. No security hassles.
Cons: No food service. Hard benches.

I missed a late connection to Puerto Rico and had a seven hour over night layover until the next morning's flight out. I ended up staying on the security side after being told I could not re-enter the gate area until 4:30am if I exited. Several of the gate area staff warned about the absence of power outlets landside. They also advised that security has increased patrols in the food court area. I was allowed free run of the gate area as long as I avoided the housekeepers. Lots of hard wooden benches to lie on, but the waiting area chairs all have armrests. Best sleeping options were the padded black chairs at the recharge stations. TVs were kept on all night and were initially loud until one kind housekeeper nixed the volume on the unit in my area. General bathrooms all closed from 3:30-4:30 am for cleaning, but the family bathroom single continued >>

Leave the secured area to sleep!

by ranger (September, 2013)

Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: Cushioned benches in the food court
Cons: No power outlets in food court

After security is not the worst place to sleep, especially if you prefer sleeping on hard surfaces. It has hard benches without armrests and a few cushioned seats. Unfortunately, the cleaning crew was constantly vacuuming while I was there. If you're like me and prefer a cushioned surface, I highly recommend you leave security and sleep in the landside area. The food court, although brightly lit, has benches with cushions in the center and no armrests. They surround an aquarium, which was nice to watch. Just make sure you charge your electronics beforehand, as there are no outlets in the vicinity. I had three other 'bunkmates' the night I stayed in the food court, so get there early to claim your spot. I got a solid four hours of sleep. If you prefer hard benches and are before security, the large open area by the Hilton is also nic continued >>

nowhere to sleep

by caljr (April, 2011)

Reason for Stay: Just for the fun of it
Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: free wifi
Cons: no places to sleep

TPA is loud, bright and uncomfortable to try to sleep in. One half decent place to try is a walk way between the Marriott and the terminal. The chairs and tables are strategically placed so you cant put your feet up. Nice place to visit but I will try to avoid this airport if the potential for sleeping is in play. Everything except starbucks is closed overnight. free wifi is the bonus.
