very likely!!! We have NEVER EVER left on time with VA! Last September we left 3 hours late and the year before 2 hours! Also they took us off the early flight and put us on the later flight. I thought it was just because we were going off peak and the planes were empty-ish and they were combining the flight, but no..the early flight took off on time with somebody else sitting in the seats we'd booked and we took off several hours later on the later flight which was also late!!!

Another time they took our allocated captain and co for another flight to Barbados as their captain was ill. It then took them a good few hours to get in another crew from standby so we took off a few hours late again...The Barbados flight was as good as on time!

So good luck...

I wouldn't worry, often when there is a delay they will maket up in the sky. I am not convinced I have ever flown on time long haul but have landed early/on time/made up a chunk of time in the air

Nothing you can do it about so its not worth stressing, you are on your way to disney!

We just sort of expect it now and take it in our stride..our 3 hours was the worst its been (last year) especially as it was the later flight anyway as it meant we really did just arrive at Orlando and basically go to bed as opposed to going out. If they hadn't moved us off the flight on a previous trip to that we would have been on time.

But hey ho better late then not at all...!

I have flown the same route 4 times and never been delayed but have always been on the earlier flight. This time we went for later flight due to big price difference. What will happen is going to happen, I am just curious to know why it's a delay on the later flight only.
