Ceremony of the keys question

We are going to London April 27 to May 7. Tickets are sold out till April. May tickets open November 1. I have a reminder on my phone for October 31. My question, with London being 5 hours ahead of us, what NY time should I plan on starting to logon to score tickets? Does anyone know what time the website opens?

Contrary to the previous comment, I wouldn't count on their website being able to put you in the queue before you go to bed, i.e. before the website opens for May tickets.

Normally the time difference is 5 hours. Daylight saving (UK "Summer Time") ends October 27. BUT -- United States daylight saving time doesn't end until November 3! So, on October 31 and November 1 we'll be only 4 hours behind!

If their website opens at midnight for May tickets, then you'll want to log on at 8:01 PM New York time. If it opens when their office hours open, then you need to find out if that is 8 AM, 9 AM, or what. Count back 4 hours, set your alarm, hop out of bed and score your tickets.
