Do we try to stick to the schedule? Yes, most of the time. On Forth Day, we're pretty serious about it, but stuff still happens. Sometimes somebody runs a little long. Once in a while we shuffle things around. If you're desperate to see a particular thing at a particular time please mention it and we'll try to accommodate you.
