    hello guys Beautiful parks and beaches entice a trip to the small group of islands in Lake Ontario. Ferries take you from the foot of Bay Street to the about 3 km off the port located Toronto Beaches.

    Okay let's face it. They have ipads for you to use While you're waiting for your flights. Some agents and staffs are pretty grumpy almost 24/7. I was at the airport in the morning and at night.

    If you are in terminal one and have some time to kill before your flight, stop at Apropos for some snacks and charge your electronics. They have an ipad and charging station at every seat.

    You can't check in to a flight more than 6 hours early here. Apparently it takes a long time to get anywhere fun, too. Don't expect to check out Toronto with a long layover. Just enjoy a nice airport.

    Good airport with free WiFi, Tim Horton's and plenty of charging stations and iPads by the gates. Only downside is lack of carts past security checkpoint, so travel light.

    Thought was a great airport until today. Sent to Aisle 15 to wait a long time to even be let into customs. Don't arrive too early for your flight to US or you will wait a long time. Eat before arrival

    Double check the size of your carry on luggage. I just had to pay $100 to check in a second bag since it happened to be 2cm wider than they allow on board. But at least free wi-fi to vent about it ;)

    Gateway to the largest city in Canada. Mayor Rob Ford transitions through here so it's not a bad deal. If you're like me, you will be picked up and driven here, it's so large it's nutty.

    For all those people that park on the side of the road or endlessly drive in a circle waiting to pick up in arrivals - just follow the signs for CELL PHONE PARKING. It is free parking while you wait.

    In Terminal 1? The cheapest spot for food and drinks is waaay out at F88. If you've got time, the Canadian Bagel co. will make you an awesome breakfast sandwich and a cocktail.

    If you're connecting domestically and traveling to the US and have 2 hours to kill you are wrong. Going through the gates, security checks and immigration will kill it. Head over to your gate now!🏃🏽

    Even if they have Internet is not very easy to get the signal when you are outside immigration... Nice airport though!!!! Easy to get into the city (Rocket 192 leave you at Kipling subway station)

    Must visit: Rogers Centre formerly known as SkyDome is a multi-purpose stadium in Toronto. Being a sports venue, it also hosts a wide range of other large scale events like trade fairs, concerts etc.

    Large airport and very nice. Air Canada's gate staff and check in process is disorganized. Attendants are pretty good but no one seems to have any answers. They just kick the can down the road.

    If your flight is canceled due to weather, don't bother using ACs N desk to get your free accommodation. Last night the line was at least 6 hours long. Cool #AirCanada strategy to avoid paying !

    When flying BA/AA from LHR to the US, pick up your luggage then head upstairs to the AA counters near the US passport entrance. Don't follow the connections signs. Wish someone told me.

    Nexus card holders will breeze through security, both incoming and departing. Be sure to have it out and handy for the CBP agent at the end, else they'll get annoyed and may see it as a violation.

    Like the free wifi & plentiful outlets. Dislike the lack of food & beverage options in the American/WestJet gate. It's really sad, especially since you can see the Tim Hortons on the other side

    Only to be used if traveling abroad. This airport is always packed, he lineups can be hours long, and finding your way around can be a nightmare. A nessicary evil when traveling to/from TO.

    Extremely clean airport with free wifi. Looking for a VIP lounge? I would suggest Googling the lounge you're looking for on your phone. Most staff are unaware of which lounge is which. 👌

    Customs was v.Unusual process. 3 steps to get thru customs seems simple, but it was a mess & unorganized! US & CAN: make sure u scan passport in machine ahead of time or wait 2hrs in non-citizen line

    When flying United as a Canadian, be sure you use the automated terminals in front of the desks to ensure skipping that 45 minute lineup. At least two hours before your flight, if crossing the border.

    There aren't many food selections in the Delta terminal (B). Be sure not to arrive hungry! Also, places to hang out are limited which kind of stinks for those with long layovers. Safe travels!

    If you're American going INTO the US, you'll encounter border agents with great attitudes. Coming back in, however, if you're American, prepare to get some cold shoulders. Sorry, it a fact...

    Must visit: Art Gallery Of Ontario, the 10th largest art museum in North America. It has an impressive collection of more than 40,000 works from around the world spanning 100AD to present.

    Terminal 3 is the worse. Unfortunately they "threw" all the US airlines there. The security on Terminal 3 also makes you take your shoes off, even if you are part of Nexus/TSA Pre-Terminal 1 doesn't.

    nice airport w free internet & nice food court. If you are going to the US, prepare yourself by checking in early you will go through security first before going to the gates..

    Not a ton of selections for food. I like the paninis and chef salad right after customs and duty free is the same inside + out but cute cheap T-shirts in newspaper/magazine store :)

    At Q4, Walk in airport, look for ladies washroom and 3 doors to the right there's an unmarked, recessed door. Home cooked meals as well as fries and smaller things, cheap prices!

    Never, ever connect internationally through Pearson. Double immigration and customs for the US-bound; plan to add two plus hours. (The inter-terminal baggage protocol alone boggles the mind.)

    For free temp parking while u wait for an arrival: take exit "1 / 3 or Airport Rd", go left at the lights, skip the left road entrance, go straight then round the left bend & make an immediate left!
  • Scottie M.
    Super boring airport. Very clean though which is always a plus. No Ubers at arrivals so take the Union-Pearson train to the first stop (about $5) and get an uber from there.

    Signage for int'l connections in T1 is poor. When you follow them and end up at the customer service desks don't stop there. Continue past the desks to the left and follow the signs up the escalator.

    Long flight? Peanuts are okay, but bringing a filling, healthy snack like almonds or fruit will keep you tied over until your destination. For more travel tips and fun, follow @DoubleTree on Twitter!

    The new transborder process means you can't just walk through with your Global Entry slip. You are required to speak to an agent to be cleared. It has slowed down the process quite a bit!

    Plenty of food and shops once through security. Security line ups are hit or miss but the bag drop off and check in can sometimes be crazy so definitely leave early.

    On the lower level Gates 101to112, there is ONE outlet on the phone station using the public TTY. Yes you CAN plug in and sit on the window ledge to relax and recharge ;-)

    If you flight gets canceled, return your duty free bottles to the Duty Free Shop (it's open all night) otherwise with your bags already checked you will be donating them to security .

    There's a new 'staging' area that you have to wait in before you can go through customs. Suggest not arriving too early for your flight.

    Be sure to have the right money for the shuttle bus to the metro or they won't let you on. I know, easier said than done when you've only just arrived in the country!

    Free wifi available. If you have to get to gates B1 or B2 in terminal 3, leave yourself LOTS of time to get across the very long hallway to that area of the terminal.

    If you are going to the U.S. and don't have GOES/Nexus, plan on arriving at least 2 hours early. The US Customs preclearance takes at least an hour of queuing to go through.

    Terminal 1 is still one of the longest walks from gate to customs/baggage claim of any airport I have been to. If you have mobility issues, might want to consider a wheelchair.

    In case anyone was wondering, this airport is a vortex for chaos, inefficiency, and horrible customer service. The *actual* worst for international connections to the US. Get it together, Canada!
