Spotting At Orlando

Mon Apr 21, 2003 7:26 am

Hey guys

I have a school trip coming up next week to Orlando. We'll be spending 5 days there, with some time to kill on both our arrival and departure. With all the news surrounding spotting at MCO, I was wondering if there are any nice, decent spots inside the terminals, as I probably won't be able to be outside, but instead will have to be with my group. We're flying AA, so I beleive that's Airside/Terminal 1.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance,

P.S. I saw on MCO's website the 'AGT'/train that goes from check-in areas to gates. Do all passengers need to take this in order to get to/from check-ins, gates, and baggage claims? Looks pretty cool...

Spotting At MCO

I dont think you are allowed to go to any other airsides if you come in Airside 1. Its been ages since I flew into Airside 1, we're talking back with Eastern Airlines. I usually fly Delta into Airside 3 I think and they dont allow pax into the other airsides. I did find some great spotting locations at that Airside, but I was on the side where the Internationals arrive. On AA's side it will be all domestic and cargo.

There are some decent spots to watch planes from that airside.

That was taken over by the AA gates, and nobody harassed me.

At MCO you cannot jump from Terminal to Terminal as you can at other airports. You can however go back to the Hub for the monorail and switch trains. You cannot go to any other terminals that are not on your side of security.
I Don't know where I am anymore
