(note that this video shows the 2014 experience, the dates are incorrect in the video but otherwise perfect in this post!)
Trains board 15 minutes before the trip time but it is recommended that you arrive at least an hour early. Don’t worry, there is so much to do, you’ll stay happily busy — which is way better than RUSHED.
