    Thanks in advance!

    We are arriving Friday the 19th in Vegas at 4:45 Local Time. We have the Beatles Love show starting at 7 pm that evening, with tickets waiting at the box office.

    We are staying at the NoMad Hotel and will be trying to to hustle to get from baggage claim to the hotel to the show..... What is the most efficient way to handle this so we are sprinting to the Love theater.

    I guess my main thoughts are:

    Uber or Taxi?
    Check in or call hotel in advance to speed up that process?
    Taxi from Park to Mirage?
    What am I not thinking of?

    Thanks for all the help, this board is awesome and I hope to share my Trip Report when we get back!

    Have you used this service? The idea intrigued me enough to check out the website. It does not list McCarran as a participating location. And the site is a bit unfinished and shady IMO. But I like the thought.

    International Flights
    In general, Bags VIP luggage delivery is not available for passengers arriving on international flights because of U.S. Customs and Border Protection policies. However, if the service is available at the destination airport, Bags VIP luggage delivery is available for international travelers arriving in the U.S. from airports with Pre-Clearance (listed below), from U.S. Territories, or when an international traveler clears Customs and Border Protection at a U.S. airport prior to boarding a domestic connecting flight to a destination where Bags VIP is offered.

    Bags VIP is offered on international flights ORIGINATING from the following pre-clearance airports:

    Canada
    Calgary International Airport (YYC) - Calgary, Alberta, Canada
    Edmonton International Airport (YEG) - Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
    Halifax Robert L. Stanfield International Airport (YHZ) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
    Montreal Trudeau International Airport (YUL) - Montreal, Quebec, Canada
    Ottawa MacDonald-Cartier International Airport (YOW) - Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
    Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) - Toronto, Ontario, Canada
    Vancouver International Airport (YVR) - Vancouver, BC, Canada
    Winnipeg International Airport (YWG) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada


    Caribbean
    Bahamas, Freeport (FPO)
    Bahamas, Nassau (NAS)
    Bermuda (BDA) - St. George, Bermuda
    Aruba (AUA)


    Ireland
    Shannon Airport (SNN) - Shannon, County Clare, Ireland
    Dublin Airport (DUB) - Dublin, Ireland

    It looks like the website was designed by someone when the web was first invented!

    Yep, I've used them a few times, mainly in Florida, and its always worked out well. They do serve McCarran, and most major US airports (for domestic airports you have to click on the Google Maps part of the "Service Locations" page. Yep, horrific design).
    They had a partnership with Delta (or possibly American) a few years back which is how I was introduced to the service.

    Is it possible to call a day ahead to get checked in? Or let concierge know that I will need to be ready to check in ASAP and on way to the show?

    Uber from airport and Uber from hotel to mirage.

    Can you pick up tickets from box office at Park mgm or does it have to be mirage box office. If you can get at Park one person could check into room while other getting tickets.

    I think timing will be close but you should be alright.

    OMGosh. I fly Allegiant (I despise it but I fly it) and I personally would never book a show on the day/evening I arrive. Cause I may never even arrive. I usually only arrive for weekend $500 BUY IN slot tournaments and make sure I book flight AT LEAST THE DAY BEFORE, in the case that Allegiant once again is late/or, and I can't miss the Slot Tournament. I can always get my host to check me into the Tournament the night before, but I have to be there the next day to play. Good luck! Hope you make your show. (My own fault I fly Allegiant)

    We are on Southwest so hopefully we don't run into that issue. Thinking of getting Uber after baggage and calling Park to get either checked in or drop bags off and say we will be back later. If possible just keep same Uber and roll over to Mirage. As long as nothing major happens I feel we should be hurried but OK.

    Still open to other suggestions but thanks everyone for the help!

    Mirage will hold your bags for you during show if you wanted to head straight to Mirage and then you could just grab them when you are heading back. I think you will have plenty of time to check in and head towards Mirage.

    I hate to say it, but there are a lot of points at which this can go wrong. I haven't used the BagsVIP service directly, but some airlines partner with it and similar services. The real problem you're facing is potential delays -- figure if it takes an hour from when you land to when you get to the hotel, then you should be okay, but still cutting it close. If you have any sort of delay, though, then you're in some trouble, and I'm fairly certain that Love doesn't allow late entry. At that hour you shouldn't have any issue with the room not being ready, and you might be able to use mobile check-in if they have it there, but I don't think a call to the concierge will do much.

    Thanks for the replies! I know we are cutting it close but at this points we can't change so.....our first gamble of the trip will be making the show...

    I like the idea of just Uber to Mirage for show and check in later at NoMad. That should buy some time in event of delay. Thanks again for the help!
