    Our flight got changed. We will now be getting in about 4:00p.m. We have 7:15 reservations at hop dee do. Is this a problem?

    Hi, Britt!  I certainly think you can still make the 7:15 reservation at the Hoop Dee Do, but it's going to be tight.  I always allow myself an hour to get out of the airport (if the flight lands at 4, I estimate getting out of there by 5), then it's about a half hour to 45 minutes before you arrive at your hotel, putting you there by about six o'clock or a little earlier.  As soon as you check in, you are going to need to make your way to your dinner reservation.

    Sometimes, depending on whether or not you have checked luggage, you can get out of the airport much more quickly.  You also don't say whether or not you are renting a car or using other means of transportation.  If you are renting a car, I highly recommend sending one member of your party to pick up the car, the others to pick up the checked luggage, then the person renting the car can swing over to baggage claim to pick you up.  That saves a little bit of time.

    If you can do online check in before you leave, that will make the check in process go a bit more smoothly as well.  You check in online, and when you arrive at your resort, you go directly to the online check in counter, and your information should be all ready to go.  That saves a little bit of time!

    Have a wonderful vacation, and enjoy the show!
