If your flight to Orlando arrives after midnight, what date do you make a hotel reservation for? If I were arriving at 6am I would not make a reservation for the night before. I realize the room my not be ready and I could find things to do until it was. But what if my flight arrives at 12:30am? As a solo traveler what would you do? If I reserve a room for the previous night and don't arrive until after midnight, does the reservation automatically get cancelled?
