"I think it's going to be crazy and I'm glad I'm not in the rush because it will be rush," said traveler Julie Graham.

Graham and her kids are going back to New York after spending time with family in Orlando. At the airport, she said her trip so far as gone pretty smoothly.

"It's good that they prepare you with the comforts of your need so that it will be easier, so you won't get frustrated," said Graham.

With an estimated 123,000 travelers coming through Orlando International Airport this Saturday after Christmas, the airport said it's focused on making sure every traveler has an experience like Graham's, and it's doing this through a couple of ways.

First, airport officials said they've created a mobile app and posted videos on the airport's website to help travelers find their way around the airport.

And for international travelers, the airport put up 20 kiosks to help with processing paperwork.

The airport has also created a hangout room away from the gates for travelers to relax as they wait for their flights.

Airport officials said the most important thing about traveling is time management. They advise travelers to arrive at the airport at least two hours before if they have a domestic flight and three hours if they have an international flight.
