DTD check in


Has anyone had experience of using the check in and bag drop at DTD and how long you had to wait. Was it busy or straight in and out? Never done this before and trying to work out our day after doing the bag drop here after allowing enough time. Hopefully aiming to get there for 8am.

Thanks :)

I understand that it opens from 8am to 1.0pm. Previous posters have said that the earlier you get there the better it is.

On the last day of my holiday I will be getting there just before they close!

We usually get there about 11am

Have never waited longer than 5 mins I can honestly say there has never been a queue to speak of

We used it last year, got there when it opened and had to wait about 10 mins for them to set everything up. There was a couple of families in front of us but we were done and on our way by 8.30. Definitely worth doing saves a lot of time later at the airport.

I used it last Thursday. Was there at 7-45am and had one family in front of us. Brilliant. Went for breakfast at Earl of Sandwich and then off to Hollywood Studios for the day :)
