Taxi fare estimator: mearstransportation.com/taxi-services/…

The official taxi rank at the airport will be served by official taxis which operate official fares. Mears is one of a handful of operators. Their taxis are mostly yellow. They are the largest private transportation company in Orlando I believe.

It is best to either change money in the UK or better still use an ATM. Carrying large amoiunts of cash is foolhardy at best. UK debit cards will work in US ATMs which will, of course, dispense dollars. There will be fees, the level of which will depend on the card issuer (bank). If you have time, ask yours what their fees are and shop around for a better deal. Watch for two fees: a loading of the exchange rate AND a percentage or flat fee. You can in fact get away without any of these, at the right bank.
