Remember That January 22nd Deadline To Have Real ID At The Airport?

As we hope you read in this article from October, Homeland Security said that as of January 22, 2018, all American citizens age 18+ who used a driver’s license as ID would need one that was Real ID compliant, or live in a state that had gotten an extension while actively pursuing the changeover to Real ID, in order to use it to get through TSA security at U.S. airports. It wasn’t a new decree – they had been working towards this since 2005 and the first deadline had been May, 2008 – but there had been extension after extension for states that were non-compliant. But January 22 was going to be THE final date. In the past few days it was said there were still 9 states that weren’t yet compliant AND still hadn’t filed for extensions, so what was going happen to them as of January 22nd?

Using A Debit Card for Car Rentals, The Airport Restaurant Designed by Walt Disney Imagineering, & More…

It’s the last weekend of 2017, y’all! Like many of you, I’m pretty much ready to let 2017 exit the building and maybe even let the door hit it on its behind as it leaves. Here’s to hoping that 2018 will be our best year yet!

#TBT: The Airport Restaurant Designed By Walt Disney Imagineering

Sometimes you’re in an airport and wonder, “What the hell is something like THAT doing in an airport?” The iconic 1962 TWA Flight Center at J.F.K. Airport is a great example, especially now that Eero Saarinen’s landmark building is in the midst of being reimagined as a world class hotel.

L.A.X. has another such structure – the Theme Building. Designed in 1959, it was completed and dedicated in 1961. After receiving landmark status in 1993, the building that looks like a giant flying saucer got a $4 million renovation in the mid-1990s, with retro-futuristic interior and electric lighting designed by Walt Disney Imagineering (WDI), in preparation for it to open as a restaurant called Encounter in 1997.

Starbucks at Orlando Int’l Airport Reopens, Soon To Sell Beer & Wine

If you’ve traveled through Orlando International Airport (MCO) in recent months, you know that it’s been going through a LOT of construction. Besides being in the midst of building Terminal C (its much-needed garage is already ready and in use!), the walkways between the two X-ray areas have been updated and the ticket lobbies and monorails are in the midst of renovations, as well. Some of the airport’s eateries are also going through some changes; for example, a Firehouse Subs opened at the main terminal food court last week.

However the renovation news that excited me most came from MCO’s Twitter the other day. Continue reading “Starbucks at Orlando Int’l Airport Reopens, Soon To Sell Beer & Wine”
