Orlando International Airport (MCO) has introduced a new Reserve Parking program, allowing passengers to guarantee a parking spot.


This initiative comes as the airport experiences a surge in travelers, including a significant increase from local residents. In response to the growing demand for parking, MCO recently added three new surface lots, accessible with E-Pass and SunPass Plus, increasing their parking capacity by over 2,000 spaces.

The Reserve Parking program, currently limited to Level 4 of Parking Garage C, offers around 715 spots. Passengers can book a spot up to 365 days in advance using the MCO mobile app or website, with a daily rate of $32. Reservations must be made at least 24 hours before arrival, and late cancellations incur a 50% fee. The program is open to all travelers, including Brightline train passengers, though it does not currently offer designated spaces for electric vehicles. The airport says that the program may expand to other parking areas at MCO if successful.

Here is a video of how the Reserve Parking program works at MCO.
