Advisory for Orlando International Airport

Orlando International Airport (MCO) is typically the main airport of choice for those traveling to Walt Disney World or Universal Studios Florida. Today, MCO posted that travelers should be aware of an advisory at the airport throughout the day.

Although the advisory will not impact airport operations, MCO wanted travelers to know what was happening at the airport today.

The post stated the following: Today we are conducting our biennial emergency exercise in accordance with FAA rules and regulations. Please do not be alarmed if you see any emergency equipment/vehicles on property. This is only a drill and will not impact airport operations.

As seeing additional emergency equipment and vehicles at the airport can be alarming, we appreciate that Orlando International Airport is being proactive with this communication.

This is why checking communication from your airports, resorts, and other travel companies you might be working with during your trip is crucial. Doing this will save you some stress and allow you to be aware of anything that might impact your trip ahead of time.

As we prepare for the holidays, travel will continue to increase. Pack your patience if you plan on traveling to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Florida, or other magical destinations this holiday season.

Travel airports will be busy, and winter weather throughout the country could impact your travel plans. If you head into the day knowing that this could happen, you won’t be as overwhelmed if it does happen.

We wish you a safe and happy travel this holiday season.



About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
