Orlando International Airport parking lots filling up ahead of Memorial Day weekend
ORLANDO, Fla. - It’s a holiday weekend, and parking spots at Orlando International Airport are quickly filling up.
The West Park Place Economy Parking Lot was one of only two lots with spaces still available for travelers, as of 8 p.m. Friday. The South economy lot is the other.
The airport opened the West lot on Thursday ahead of what it’s expecting will be a busy Memorial Day weekend and the start of summer for some.

The busiest day will be Saturday, the airport predicts, when nearly 170,000 people are estimated to be departing and arriving.
