The busiest travel season of the year has arrived and Orlando International Airport is preparing for a wave of passengers coming through. Whether people have come to Orlando to see family or spend time at Walt Disney World, or maybe they’re coming home from somewhere else, there’s sure to be plenty of crowds. At an airport that sees a fair amount of tourist traffic throughout the year, any preparations that guests can make to be early for check-in, as well as trying to pack light, is wise, but especially during a time of extra holiday traffic.
MCO recently tweeted out their projected number of travelers for higher traffic days. The 27th of December should have seen near 163,454 people, December 28th, it is estimated that that number went up to 168,247, and December 29th will be the busiest day of all at 174,495. After that, the 30th will dip back down to 168,341, and December 31st will end the year off at 145,479. All in all, this only confirms that Americans continue to travel more for the holidays with each passing year and that everyone needs to do their part to ensure safe and speedy journeys.
