    I know its a lot of questions but if we want to use the virgin downtown Disney check in desk on the last day should we do online check in to make sure of our seats the day before, or does that stop us from using downtown Disney?

    We've not bothered with DTD check in doe years now. You have to be there really early, the queue is massive and there's no shade. We've just left our bags at bell services and used Magical Express instead. I guess you can arrive at the airport a little later if you've already checked in, but we found it didn't make much difference.

    I now see you're at a villa so obviously can't use magical express :)

    We did DTD check in. We arrived about 9.30am and there was no line. Five minutes and we were done and our bags were whisked away for us. If you check in online you'll have to keep your cases with you all day and drop them off at the airport.

    We always check In online and then take the cases to DTD, we get our boarding passes and we are luggage free. We don't see it again until the flight lands in the UK.

    Excellent thank you :)
    I think we are going to DTD and plan on dumping the luggage hiring one of the pontoon boats and then a bit of lunch at raglan road.

    There will be a line if you get there at opening time. Like I said, we rolled up a bit later and were in and out in a few minutes. Breakfast and a few hours of Disney Quest before heading to the airport.
