The Orlando / MCO airport has kind of a weird setup, in that there is a central terminal and then 4 different concourses in 2 different terminals that are accessible only by a people mover that you go on after passing through security. There are 2 Priority Pass MCO lounges, one in Terminal A / Concourse 1 (Gates 1-29) and one in Terminal B / Concourse 4 (Gates 70-99)
The Club MCO Priority Pass Terminal A location, access and hours
The MCO Terminal A Priority Pass lounge is in the hub of Terminal A Concourse 1 serving Gates 1-29. Once you clear security and take the people mover to Terminal A Concourse 1, The Club MCO is right there in the central area
Because of the odd setup of MCO, this lounge is only accessible airside to passengers arriving or deplaning from Gates 1-29. Other passengers are able to get to it but would need to clear security twice.
The Club MCO Airport Terminal A lounge hours are from 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily.
Priority Pass MCO The Club Terminal A seating
The Priority Pass MCO website mentions that access may be restricted between noon and 2 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. daily due to space constraints and we did run into this on our visit. We arrived to MCO at about 2 p.m. on our flight and thought we’d stop to get a quick bite to eat before heading out to our hotel. The agent said there would be a slight wait, which was fine (I was not surprised given the disclaimer on the website). She checked us in and then I asked how many of us she could accommodate. She said 4, so I split us up but then she told us we could all go in but we wouldn’t be able to sit together. I was a bit confused by the whole process. In any case, a seating area for all 8 of us opened up within 5 minutes.
Here is a picture of the seating – the Priority Pass MCO Terminal A lounge is not very big
The Club MCO Priority Pass food
The food at The Club MCO Priority Pass was typical for a domestic airport lounge. We were there a little after lunch and they had 2 tureens of soup (chicken enchilada and tomato bisque)
As well as a variety of finger sandwiches
There was a table of candy, cookies and other sweets
In addition to canned soft drinks, there was also a bar available
On our way out of the Orlando Airport (MCO), we were at The Club MCO during the breakfast hours. Most of the food setup was the same, but they had a variety of breakfast foods in the main area instead of lunch
Also a pot of oatmeal with toppings instead of the soups
The Club MCO Terminal A Priority Pass Airport lounge amenities
There is free wifi at The Club MCO Priority Pass lounge but because we were there for such a short time, I didn’t get to use it. The lounge does have a very small children’s area, which was set up to play Fortnite when I was there.
There is also a restroom and shower facility there.
All in all, with airport lounges, you kind of get what you get (generally an airport lounge is going to at least be a step up from the terminal), but I was pleased with my experience with The Club MCO Terminal A Airport lounge
