Immigration queues MCO

Hi we are flying into MCO terminal C
My son has autism and wears a sunflower lanyard.

Iím just worried incase there is a large queue at immigration- he could probably cope with about 10 mins but then would meltdown.

Do MCO offer any sort of assistance at immigration and how do we arrange it?

Thanks very much.

Your biggest issue will be the wait for luggage before immigration to be honest
Donít rush off the plane and take your time on the walk to the baggage hall
The immigration ques move fairly quick as the baggage is slow to come off we find

Thanks I was hoping to be able to walk around with him whilst the others in a party wait for the cases - itís the standing still he will have a problem with.

Good to know immigration moves fairly quickly.

Thanks for your reply. Last time we went from Dublin so immigration done pre boarding and it was really quick. Coming home we were ushered to the front of the security queue when his lanyard was spotted. Shame they donít do it on landing at immigration - good to hear it was pretty quick though 😊.

Luckily for us, terminal C was pretty quick with immigration. Because we had a long walk to the luggage collection then it was all systems go with getting the luggage we didn't face any usual issues.
I hope it goes well x
