Major airlines such as British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Thomas Cook and Delta operate direct flights to Orlando from UK airports, including twice-daily London Gatwick services and daily flights from Manchester to Orlando. Cheap flights to Orlando also depart from Glasgow.
The sheer number of flights available means there is always a chance you’ll get a great deal when you compare and book Orlando flights in 2017.
Fly to Orlando and you’re likely to land at Orlando International Airport (MCO).
In 2016, this facility ranked as the 29th-busiest airport in the world and 13th-busiest in the United States (unlucky for some, but not for you, if you’ve found a low-cost flight to Orlando). The airport is just 9.5km (6 miles) from the main city, with one terminal building divided into two areas, Terminal A and Terminal B.
If you fly from the UK with Thomson Airways, or take a connecting flight via another US city, you might land at Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB). This is smaller and a little further from the city, around 43 kilometres (27 miles) from Orlando.
For information on how to reach your holiday destination from either airport, visit our how to get around Orlando page.
The US Visa Waiver Programme (VWP) allows most British passport holders to stay in Orlando for up to 90 days without a visa.
You’ll also need to register with the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA). This can be arranged online. All you need do is enter some basic personal information and pay a fee of US$14 before – voila! – you are authorised to travel. ESTA authorisation typically remains valid for two years.
All British travellers arriving under the VWP must have an e-Passport. A little symbol on the front of the passport shows you if it’s an e-Passport.
