Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to travel by train from Chicago to Orlando right now?

We stand behind CDC guidelines that caution passengers against non-essential travel during the coronavirus outbreak. That said, we recognize not everyone is in a position to completely abstain. Whether it’s for work, to take care of family or to get back home, some circumstances inevitably require travel. If you’re one of those individuals who still needs to book a trip, you can continue to do so on Wanderu.

Know that most train companies are still running at this time, though some have limited service. Visit our COVID-19 travel guide for resources and daily updates on the coronavirus and COVID travel restrictions.

Can you take a train all the way from Chicago to Orlando?

Yes, there are trains that can take you the entire way from Chicago to Orlando. However, there are also some trips on this route that require you to board another vehicle, such as a bus or a shuttle, during your journey. This is worth paying attention to as you book your trip, since a direct train may be preferable for its speed and convenience.

What is the price of a train ticket from Chicago to Orlando?

In the last month, $177.94 was the average price of a train ticket from Chicago, IL to Orlando, FL. Tickets are generally somewhat expensive for this particular train route, which is to be expected given the long distance. You can expect to find tickets at that price or lower if you book your trip at least 5 days in advance. Otherwise, expect to pay around $5.26 more than that for a same-day booking.

How long is the train journey from Chicago to Orlando?

The distance between Chicago and Orlando is approximately 986 miles, or 1587 kilometers. The average train journey between these two cities takes 40 hours and 13 minutes, although the absolute fastest you could get there is 38 hours and 26 minutes.

Looking for ways to pass the time? Most trains are equipped with Wi-Fi, which means you can stream music, browse social media or get some work done during your ride. That said, in case your train has a spotty signal, or is among the few without Wi-Fi, we also recommend downloading TV shows and movies to your mobile device in advance of your trip. That way the ride will fly by whatever the Wi-Fi situation.

When are trains the most crowded?

Trains from Chicago to Orlando are the most crowded on Wednesday. Tickets also tend to be more expensive then. If you are looking for a great deal on your train tickets or just want extra room to stretch out, consider traveling on Saturday instead, as it tends to be the least crowded day of the week.

When are the first and last trains of the day?

Most days, there is only one train which leaves Chicago at 5:00pm and arrives in Orlando around 38 hours later.

Is there a direct train from Chicago to Orlando?

Typically there is only one scheduled train per day. However, it is not a direct train. This means that you will need to disembark from your original train and board a connecting train at some point during your journey. You will need to remember to bring your carry-on luggage with you when you transfer trains. Depending on the carrier's policy, you may also be responsible for transferring your own checked baggage.

You can also take a train for your return trip from Orlando to Chicago. If you're not not set on traveling by train, you could always take the bus from Chicago to Orlando for $91.00.

Amtrak is the one and only train line which connects Chicago, Illinois to Orlando, Florida.
