Wyndham Orlando Hotel is approximately 12  miles from Orlando International Airport. 

Mears Motor Shuttle provides transportation to and from the airport for $30/adult and $24/child (children under 4 travel free) round trip; however, we have negotiated and obtained a $4.00 discount/roundtrip. Upon your arrival at the airport, proceed to one of the Mears Motor Shuttle ticket counters and present coupon to Mears attendant. After redeeming the coupon, you will receive a round trip ticket. Present the ticket to the Mears "Starter" located on level one at the curb. The starter will direct you to the shuttle servicing the hotel. Click here for coupon.

You can also book the shuttle online. Click here for a link specifically for SAAS participants and family. You can make reservations and payment, then print the confirmation, which includes a barcode. Take the bar-coded confirmation to any of the Mears kiosks located on level one at either end of the rental car counters. They will scan the confirmation and you will receive a two part ticket for the shared ride shuttle.

According to the Orlando Airport website, other transportation is available to/from hotels on International Drive as follows:

Local bus (Lynx) - Route #42 -
cost per person is $2 one way - correct change only - approximately 1 hour from airport to hotel (see Lynx site for more info)

Taxi -
$36-39 one way - approx 20 minutes from airport to hotel

Taxis charge per group, not per person, so consider using a taxi if you are traveling with two or more people. It may save you money.
