I'll be in Orlando in a couple weeks for a convention. I was wondering how it is looking for spotting at MCO. I may have some free time I would like to spend a couple hours getting shots of aircraft at MCO. Is it still possible and what are some good spots?

Somebody that I e-mailed on this forum,Dazed767, told me that the long dirt parking strip on overlooking 18L and 18R is fine. Delta Air Cargo near approach of 17 is fine(I'd be careful there). UPS area for approach to 18L in mornings, I would not park there for too long. By the way, if the opposite runways are in use, I wouldn't even bother!!!!!
I feel woozy....what did you put in that Pudding Pop?

I agree with 727LOVER but you can get photos of the aircraft on the ground at the various concourses (assuming that these have not been completely closed off to non travelling passengers). As you are travelling, I would think that you will be able to take some good shots (albeit through glass). I was in MCO in December 1999 and all of my shots through glass turned out very well. MCO gets some very interesting traffic.
Don't be put off by not being able to get shots from around the perimeter - the terminals are not too bad and the glass was not too dirty either.
