Can take anything upto 72 hours, last time i did mine in the morning around 9am and it didn't approve until after 2pm..just luck of the draw.

I'd be checking my insurance and preparing myself for a worst case scenario to be honest.

There isn't an average time given, some can take minutes, hours or days...just depends on the site progresses for you unfortunately.

Sorry it's not what you want to hear but unfortunately no-one knows.

I genuinely hope it's minutes considering where you are right now

It can take up to 72 hours officially. Thereís no telling how long. Sometimes itís minutes and sometimes hours. Have you got a new passport since you last checked? Have you got a print out of the ESTA?

What an absolute nightmare for you. Keeping everything crossed that it comes through ok. 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

I second doing this.👍🏻

And I know people say you donít need print outs, but surely itís helpful in this scenario.

To pick up on what someone else has said about insurance, Iím pretty sure insurance wonít cover this as itís the travellers responsibility to ensure all essential documents are in place.

Good luck OP. 🍀🍀🍀

How traumatic for you all! So glad you got it sorted out with alternative flights. You're going, so now relax and make the most of it. Hope Disney can give you that extra day. Big glass of wine!
