I am staying at a hotel off of I-4 by Disney, I was doing some searching around the 800 band and found a strong TRS on 868.7125 that Trunker is identifying as Zone 5 of 1F36 which is the Orange County Smart Zone but it does not show in the database. The frequencies I found used by the system are 866.1125,867.3875,867.7375,868.0375,868.7125,866.5750,867.0750,867.3250 which are on the Greater Orlando Public Safety Cooperative WNXS401 license.

This is the Old Orlando System, most Orlando Public works still use it but Orlando Fire and Orlando Police Moved off of it last Year to the new digital system, that was the control channel. and i believe some of the Airport TG's may still be on it, i dont know why it was removed from the DB, probably after the Switch to 25A

I thought it was the old airport site, you are correct there was quite a bit of traffic from the airport on the zone while I had a chance to listen. The one thing that caught my attention was the frequencies are licensed to the GOPSC system so I was wondering if this was going to be one of the 25A sites and get converted soon, or if this site will go silent but the frequencies folded into the "greater good" of the GOPSC.

You're probably seeing the site in SW Orange County. Known locally as Southchase (for the subdivision it's located near). I don't think Southchase or the new Bithlo sites are in the DB yet.
