Transferring domains AWAY from dreamhost


Signed up to Dreamhost two months ago, wasn’t satisfied with the service so cancelled within forty-eight hours. Unfortunately, couldn’t remove the domain for sixty days to my new host (Bluehost). Now started the transfer process and am stuck in limbo waiting for Dreamhost to approve the transfer. I’m just wondering how long this will take. Has anybody else here tried to transfer a domain away from Dreamhost?

I realise that Bluehost will be able to complete the transfer if Dreamhost don’t respond with seven days, but I’d rather not wait that long.
