MCO Airport Parking Options

Orlando International Airport

The MCO Orlando International Airport is a popular tourist destination especially for families looking to take the Magical Express directly from the airport to Disney World. Even if you're not visiting the most magical place on earth, you might find yourself needing to travel through MCO. There are several parking options available at MCO as it is the busiest airport in Florida.

By the way, you may be wondering what MCO stands for. MCO is the airport's former name McCoy Air Force base which was closed in 1975 as part of a general military drawdown following the end of the Vietnam War.

IMPORTANT: Parking options are changing frequently due to COVID. Be sure to check with the place you plan to park to verify prices and that they are open.

    Hotel lots

    Hotel lots allow you to park at nearby hotels and the hotel shuttle takes you to the airport.

    Before using hotel lots, I’d recommend you read more about how these lots work on my guide to airport parking, particularly the section on hotel lots here.

    You might be able to save some money if you arrange for a hotel lot in advance for parking at the Orlando Airport. Last time I checked, prices ranged from $4 - $16 / day.


    Depending on the lot you choose to park at the airport and the duration and the lot you choose, the rate of the parking lot ranges from $1 for every 20 minutes and $3 per hour. On the other hand, the daily rate starts at $10.

However, if you’re looking for more economical options, then you might want to consider using TERMINAL TOP PARKING, offsite parking available outside of MCO Airport.

    Unfortunately, there is no designated parking for motorcycles at Orlando International Airport. So, for motorcycle drivers, it’s better to check offsite parking lots to find more options.
