MCO - how early to arrive?

Jump to last reply

We are flying to Orlando in mid April and I am wondering what time we need to be at the airport to go through security etc for our return home.

2 questions for 2 flights departing MCO:

We will fly home on Sunday 4/20 and have a 9:40 am departure. I figured on arriving at airport terminal around 8 am [after dropping off rental car] Will this give us enough time? We are flying Southwest and will have bags to check in.

While in Orlando, I will be flying to FLL for an overnight on Spirit. On their confirmation, they said that I should plan to arrive at MCO 3 hours ahead of departure time! This seems very early to me. I will be flying on a Friday at noon. Do I really need to be at MCO at 9 am?


It was Spirits confirmation that made me question just how early we need to get to airport for both flights.

Any insights from those who fly thorugh MCO would be appreciated.
Thanks!
Deb
