The new Terminal C opened at Orlando Airport a couple of months back. Here is the information page on it:

Note that the Brightline Station appears in the schematic diagram it has an entire section in the description of the complex.

The diagram even shows the space that is left open for the SunRail Station to the right of the Brightline Station.

At present one has to walk through the Parking Lot C structure to get from the Airport Building to the Train Station. Eventually there will be a direct walkway connecting the two adjacent to the Parking structure.

But probably not a moving walkway. The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority has decided that airport patrons can do without them, and not only did they omit them from terminal C, but they also removed the existing ones from terminals A & B. :mad:

At EWR Terminal C they removed all the moving walkways and replaced them with Wine Bars and Eateries. Go figure. Maybe that i what MCO wants to do too. :)

That's a pretty detailed description.

If only all airports would provide such detailed descriptions of what to expect.

Just saw a Sentinel article that at Orlando's Terminal C they are investigating adding moving walkways to the JetBlue concourse and International Arrivals, in the wake of numerous complaints and social media about the extended walks. Not having installed them during construction greatly complicates the process. It's easy to take one out and just fill the hole; not so easy to make a hole where there isn't one.
