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.

    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.
