We made it, I am not sure the worry was worth it but we made our flight. We did the express check out, front desk did not want to share the disembark floor because the door area gets crowded.
We were ready to go at 7am, looked out the window and saw the ramp and stood near the door, wasn't long before a crowd gathered. Customs was quick, taxi's just out the door.
We checked our luggage at the curb and took as little as possible through security. We made it and had time for coffee, thanks so much for all your advise. If it wasn't for the difference of having a 5 hour trip home vs a 12 hour trip home we wouldn't have taken the chance.
p.s. Sorry if we stepped on toes dashing around!
