Getting to and From the Gaylord Palms

The newly renovated Gaylord Palms is conveniently located 20 minutes from Orlando International Airport. Airfare, hotel, and ground transportation are the responsibility of each attendee. Directions and transportation options can be accessed at the Gaylord Palms website (please note: in order to get the discounted hotel rate, please book your room via this link).

Summit Ground Transportation Instructions

From the Orlando airport, we recommend you take the Mears Shared Ride Shuttle Service (not the private sedan service), where we've secured a discounted round-trip rate of $30 per person. To use this discount, you must book online. Be sure to click on the center image of the van for the shared shuttle and book your reservations for your round-trip transportation.

When you arrive at the airport in Orlando, present your printed confirmation (or confirmation number) to the Mears Transportation desk, where they will issue your round-trip tickets. Booking online allows you to schedule your return transportation to the airport and designate your pick-up time from the hotel, which will be included on the return trip portion of your ticket.

Hotel Parking

Daily parking rates for hotel guests are $13 (self-parking) or $20 (valet). Applicable tax (seven percent) also applies.
