How to get there

Nearest airport Orlando International Airport (MCO) - depends on the time of day, but generally takes approximately 40-45 minutes on 3 easy-to-use multi-lane highways.

Most major airlines fly into Orlando - for UK regional airports (including Birmingham) try Continental Airlines - connecting through Newark, New Jersey. Direct flights can be taken from Manchester or London (Virgin Atlantic, American Airlines, United Airlines and others).

Sanford Airport (SFB) is a little further away at 1h 15mins approximately, but is the preferred airport of charter airlines, so you can often get cheaper direct flights (Birmingham, Manchester, etc.)

Our favourite car rental companies are Alamo ( and Dollar (, if you have multiple drivers - their Gold (Alamo) and Platinum (Dollar) packages allow multiple drivers (over 25) and a full tank of petrol for an additional fee (saves finding a gas station). Their office and cars are a short walk from the terminal so no need to catch a bus, just get in your car and go. Worth checking their deals too, as sometimes extra drivers, or GPS, are included in the price. We recently found buying an Alamo rental through significantly cheaper than buying directly from Alamo.

If you have a single driver, Dollar ( are also at the airport terminal and they provide good cars and good service. Additional drivers can be added locally (for an additional fee) when you collect the car or during your stay at one of their local offices.

Florida Villa is ideally located, on an award-winning gated golf community, 15 miles from the main gates of Disney and an easy drive (40 mins) from Orlando International Airport. Lots of cheap flights to be found, especially if you book well ahead and car hire couldn't be easier. All the major rental firms have desks just by the baggage hall at the airport and can be booked online in advance.
