Thanks for all of the replies! We booked a 5:20 a.m. Flight that will arrive in Orlando at 10:30. Hopefully we will be safe with that. I know we should fly in the night before but we would both have to miss work to do that and leave our kids for an extra night. I hope things go as planned. Thanks again!

This is almost exactly what happened to us.
There was a whole big to-do about a dog that was on the plane, in a carrier, in the exit row. For whatever reason while they were trying to figure out if dogs were allowed in the exit row (FYI, they decided they were not) they opened the main cabin door...and couldn't get it shut.
They called for mechanic, and we were delayed...between the dog and the door, and the people switching seats) about an hour. Fortunately we were on the first flight down at 6:30 am, but that was enough to scare me into thinking twice before flying down on the day of the cruise...and if I have to fly down that morning, it will only be on the 6:30 am flight. Nothing later.
