♪ Upbeat Music ♪ Nearly 70 million people visit my city of Orlando each year. If you’re one of them, welcome! There’s lots to do and see here. If it’s your first time visiting, getting around Orlando International Airport can be both exciting and frustrating. Stick around as I show you how to navigate in and out of the airport like a local. Hi! My name is Richard and I’m the Orlando Guy! ♪ Intro Music ♪ ♪ Upbeat Program Music ♪ You’ve landed in Orlando. Welcome to my city! The city beautiful, and the theme park capital of the world! ♪ Transition Music ♪ When you disembark from the plane, you will have arrived in an Air-Side Terminal, either A or B. In the future there will be a C Terminal for passengers, but, that’ll be another show. The Air-Side Terminals have all the facilities you’ll need; restrooms, shops, and restaurants. The Air-Side Terminal is separated from the Main Terminal by a short ride on the Automated People Mover (or A.P.M.), and that’s where we’re headed next. By the way, if you’re an international passenger arriving at Orlando International Airport, you must first pass U.S. Customs and Immigration, and claim your baggage in the Air-Side Terminal; which, you can keep with you, or have transferred to the Main Terminal. Then, proceed to the A.P.M. station. Make your way to the center of the Air-Side Terminal Hub, and board the A.P.M. Both A.P.M’s take you to the same location on the Main Terminal side. So, take first one available. It’s only a one minute ride. ♪ Transition Music ♪ Once you exit security you will be in the Main Terminal on the Third Level. You man then proceed to baggage claim, rental cars, resort transportation or ride sharing services. If you have checked baggage, look for the large illuminated letters which indicate either the A or B side of the Main Terminal. If you arrived at an Air-Side Terminal A Gate, Your baggage claim will be on the A side of the Main Terminal – B Gate – B side of the Main Terminal. Most airlines have their baggage claim on Level Two of the Main Terminal, so take the stairs or escalator down one level, and then check the monitors to determine the correct baggage carousel for your flight. ♪ Transition Music ♪ We’re almost out of here and on to the fun, so next up is ground transportation. If you’re travelling out of the airport by curbside pickup or private car, exit the Main Terminal on Level Two – the same level as baggage claim. If you have a rental car, taxi, express pickup shuttle van or resort transportation booked, head down to Level One. ♪ Transition Music ♪ If your ground transportation is located in the brand new Intermodal Terminal C Parking Garage, you’ll need to head back up to Level Three, and take the new A.P.M. located in the Southeast corner of the Main Terminal next to B Gates 70 through 99. Oh! And don’t forget Disney’s Magical Express is only serviced from Level One on the B Side of the Main Terminal. ♪ Transition Music ♪ You’ve had fun and now it’s time to head back to the airport for your return flight. Looking at all the signs can sometimes be confusing. But really, there’s a simple method for understanding how to drive around Orlando International Airport. Think of all the lanes as grouped into one of three “loops.” Two “Inner” loops – one for the A Terminal and one for the B Terminal, and an “Outer” loop, to transfer between the terminals and to access the North and South exits of the airport. Which “loop” you need to be in will be determined by your airline and departure gate. To help you, here’s a current list of airlines and from which terminal they arrive and depart. One final word for those who are picking up guests; remember that the airport has two levels for ground transportation – Level Two near baggage claim for curbside pickup and ride-sharing services; and Level One for commercial services – rental cars, taxis, shuttles and the like. Be careful not to turn too soon, and stay in the upper lane or you will find yourself facing toll lanes for Level One. ♪ Transition Music ♪ Well, that’s it for this show. I hope this will help you navigate Orlando International Airport like a local. Share this program if you know of anyone visting my city – especially if it’s their first time. There is one last thing that is mandatory when you’re at the airport. You MUST visit Natalie’s Candy Jar — for Selma’s rice crispy treats! You know, they used to sell these at the theme parks – Mmmm Selmas! Oh, yeah! See you next time!
