Fly from Des Moines to Orlando

Get away from the Midwest for a while, and plan a fun-filled family getaway to Disney World, Sea World, or any of the other many attractions of sunny central Florida. Search for flights from Des Moines to Orlando on to find great deals on airfare, hotel accommodations, and vacation packages.

Flying out of Des Moines

Head to Des Moines International Airport, located about three miles south of downtown Des Moines, to board your flight to Orlando. Five taxi companies serve the airport, so it’s easy to catch a ride from anywhere in the greater Des Moines area. Buses and regional shuttles also serve the airport, and if you choose to drive, you can park at any of the three long-term lots near the terminal or the economy lots located just a short shuttle ride away. At $5 per day, the Economy 1 lot across Fleur drive is the cheapest parking option.

Visiting Orlando

Orlando International Airport, located about six miles outside of the city, is the primary airport serving the Orlando region, but some passengers arrive via the smaller Orlando Sanford International Airport, which is about forty-five miles from the city. Both airports have car rental facilities and taxi service. Public buses from Orlando International Airport into town cost from $2 to $4 per person, and shuttle buses are available for $13 to $46, depending on your final destination. Once in Orlando, most travelers visit one or more of the many area theme parks, but other attractions include the World of Chocolate Museum and Café, Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens, and Silver Springs Nature Park. Orlando’s subtropical climate means that winter temperatures rarely dip below freezing, and average winter highs stay in the 50s, making it a year-round destination. Summer temperatures reach average highs in the 90s, and frequent showers make Orlando wet and muggy throughout June, July, and August. Spring and fall have pleasant weather with highs in the 70s and 80s, and crowds are thinner during these seasons, so you’ll spend less time in line at the major parks and more time enjoying yourself.

Head to Sunny Florida

While Orlando is often billed as the ideal family vacation spot because of its theme parks, the city has plenty of other attractions to keep both kids and adults entertained. Book flights from Des Moines to Orlando today to start your Florida getaway off right.
