Tour the new OIA Terminal C
By Gregory Stock
This could make a fun date night. As very few people travel through the new terminal with only 14 gates, the airport has decided to offer 50 daily guest passes to non-travelers. Visitors will still have to go through the TSA checkpoint, but we are told the lines are short there, waiting in terms of minutes. The passes are free, but one still needs to park, i.e. $4.00 per hour at the south terminal garage.

The visitor pass application and rules are at www.experiencemco.orlandoairports.net
“Shop, dine, spend some more time with loved ones who are flying out,” the airport suggests. “Terminal C is new, modern, and has so much to explore: shop the theme parks, discover local brands, unleash your imagination and interact with our immersive, multimedia experiences, grab food on-the-go or sit down and dine on a delicious meal – the adventure is yours to create!”
If that sounds exhausting, there are boundaries. Visitors must enter between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., and exit by 8 p.m.
