This shuttle will drop off at the Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Hotel. Please see the attached directions for how to find the buses when you arrive at MCO. The ride each way is about 80-90 minutes,

When selecting the shuttle time, please give yourself at least 30-45 minutes from landing to collect your bags to make it to the shuttle.

You must purchase a ticket in advance before Wednesday morning June 26th as we will be handing over a list of names for each bus to have their staff check you in.

How to reserve a spot:

We are using the compendium shop to facilitate everyone needing the bus from MCO to Daytona Beach. That link will be here:

On there, please select either Thursday/Monday or Both and it will add a ticket for each, please in the extra details add the shuttle time you want to be placed on. We need this accurate so we can compile all names and give them to the transportation company. We will not allow walk-ons easily without going through this process to reserve your spot. Once we have everyone’s information CEO Gaming will email you any details or updates if necessary.


If you are coming on Wednesday or Friday, and leaving later than any of the offered times on Monday, or later than 11 pm Thursday, I have created this thread on the CEO 2019 Facebook event page:

In the comments, try to match up with other arrivals at either MCO or DAB to call an Uber/Lyft from the airport to the venue or hotel in Daytona Beach. The trips have been averaging about $65-80 each way, so if you have 3 or 4 people that come out to about $20 per person. I hope this will help get everyone safely and quickly to the venue so you can enjoy CEO 2019!

After you buy your ticket, be sure to check out the arrival process here.
