Disney Springs Check In – Virgin

Disney Springs check-in is a service offered by Virgin Atlantic, for Virgin Atlantic passengers including Virgin Holidays customers. The check in facility at Disney Springs in Orlando allows you to check in for your Virgin Atlantic flight as well as drop off your baggage. This saves having luggage in the rental car for the last day of the holiday or making arrangements with Bell Services to retain it pending departure to the airport..

The check in facility is located in the valet area of the Cirque du Soleil in the Westside area of Disney Springs (next to DisneyQuest), parking lot L & M, and is open daily from 8.15am to 1.00pm local time.

When you check in for your flight you will receive your boarding pass. Payment for excess baggage, date of travel change fees and upgrade charges can also be taken. These charges can only be taken in the form of USD cash or credit cards.

Bags are then taken to the airport in secure vans. Customers are advised to arrive at the airport 2 hours before the flights scheduled departure time. This service is complimentary to Upper Class passengers, Flying Club Gold cardholders, Virgin Holidays passengers and infants, otherwise there is a charge of $10 per head payable at check in.

If you want to check-in online before hand you can and just pick up your boarding cards. Sometimes there is a queue (often not huge) and other times its completely empty, especially later in the morning (after 10am). You can park your car directly accross the road where there is nearly always space. This means there is only a short walk to check-in (< 50m)

Please note. All pasengers on the booking must be present, all must be in possession of their Passports and bags will be weighed. There is no requirement to take cabin bags with you to the facility.
