We had to work our way through the crowds to make it to the TSA PreCheck lanes. Once we got to the PreCheck line, it was still a 10 minute wait to get our ID’s approved while we waited for the people who weren’t supposed to be in the line to be told they needed to go and wait in the 45 minute line going down the hall. But there was one line that was empty – the one for CLEAR.

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.
