Orlando - driving

I was wondering, I was in Orlando last week and had a good time, when you drive, what do they mean by .75 cents for going past certain Epass stations, sorry can't explain it any more, bit confusing as it was so big, just need to know for next time if I drive

EPass is Florida's automatic toll collection system. If you have an Epass tag (transmitter) in your car, you can go through the specially marked lanes without stopping. Your toll is automatically deducted from your account.
If you go through the station and do not have a tag or an account you will be billed for the toll plus a fine. Photos are taken of your license plate and if there is no account, the owner of the car is billed.
I normally have my exact change tolls in my pocket for my arrival. There are 2 tolls between the airport and Disneyworld, each .75 cents.

If you are going to drive around Orlando at all, bring a roll of quarters. Some of the tolls are $1.25.

Only if you don't know where you're going :) The Greenway is a major rip-off. I never take it unless I have no other choice.
Remarkable how all the signs from the airport toward Disney point you to the Greenway rather than the less expensive Beeline :)
