Finding your way around

By Plane
Orlando International Airport (MCO, tel. 407-825-2001, www.orlandoairports.net) is located roughly 10km south of downtown Orlando. State Road 528 (also known as the Beeline Expressway) runs directly to I-4, which provides access to the various districts of the city.

By Car
While Interstate 4 is a major east-west freeway across Central Florida, linking the Atlantic coast in Daytona Beach to the Gulf Coast in Tampa, it runs north-south through the Orlando area. Exits are marked for downtown Orlando, the International Drive Resort Area, the sundry theme parks and other cities.

By Train
Three trains operated by Amtrak serve Greater Orlando: the Silver Meteor, the Silver Star and the Palmetto.
