They would have saved more. They paid an admin fee as well.

Collected my Daughter earlier so strolled through the Alamo garage to get to the lift for Level 3

Loads of people collecting their Visitor Pass. Nice to see.

Just avoid sunpass lanes and stop at toll booth to pay.
We went to KSC from Windsor Hills - I just looked at the statement and it was 5 tolls each way. Each to their own, but I reckon it was worth having the visitor pass not to have to stop and start 10 times on that journey. And, bonus, the visitor pass charges are slightly discounted too.

Maybe a 5 min line. Certainly not long.

And that is a route that would have cost time, miles and a hell of alot of stop lights to avoid the tolls.

It all depends where you go but simply going from MCO to the tourist areas via the simplest and quickest routes DOES involve toll roads.

Potential stupid question but does Alamo not come with sunpass already activated? How can you deactivate it and only use the VTP? How do people not get charged by both? THanks

You display the VTP on your rearview mirror and it activates on exit from MCO, would assume that the VTP being active stops the charges being passed to alamo
