Delta is notorious for its frequent and arbitrary changes to flight schedules. We used to fly with Delta, but not anymore! They really messed us up on more than a few occasions. Now we avoid Delta unless there is absolutely no other airline that flies to the destination we need.

To answer the original question about changing terminals at Heathrow, it's very easy. We arrived in Terminal 3 and had to go to Terminal 5 because our hotel, the Sofitel, was located at Terminal 5. If your luggage isn't being checked through and you have them with you, you can use the luggage trolley up until you board the train. You can get another trolley when you exit the train. If you do have luggage with you, the trolley is a must. It was quite a walk from where we got out of baggage claim and the train platform.

Just follow the signs to the train. It will be the same platforms as the ones heading toward London but just watch the boards on the platforms that tell you which train is coming in. My mom almost stepped onto one heading out to London but we grabbed her before she got on. LOL She wasn't paying attention.

We did the same thing on the way back to Terminal 3 the next day when we flew home.

The train between the terminals are free. I think the only thing you have to worry about is leaving yourself enough time to get from one terminal to the next.

I haven't read all the posts but I know the answer to the OP question. It is so easy to switch terminals. Just get off the plane and follow the signs, you can even ask people on the way. The have a shuttle that drives you right over to the other terminal. It probably takes 10 minutes. I had the most expensive breakfast of my life in a small restaurant at the Heathrow airport.

ETA-we didn't have to bother with our luggage. The airline moved it from one plane to the other for us

You may be able to get child fares for Delta, but you have to call for them cannot book it on line.
