Dodgers game 4th July

The 4th July game is at 515 , would it be possible or impossible to see this game and make an international flight to Australia leaving at 11pm at night .

Would really love to see a game but have limited time .

I could rearrange thing for three options

1. Game in New Orleans on the 25th June

(But I'm a dodgers fan)

2.dodgers on the 3rd and miss Disneyland at night

3) as above but flying home

P.s asking son

Please and ThAnkyou for your help

You could see part of that game.... You would probably want to leave by 7:15 or so? Leave after the 7th inning stretch? Not very satisfying though...

Agree not very satisfying

As much as it's an awesome game,and would love to stay the whole game , for us ozzies it's probably the atmosphere that is going to overwhelm us .

Thanks for your reply tho no closer to making a decision .

No, don't risk it or the traffic that will be on the westside of LA due to fireworks events. You'd need to be at LAX by 8 for an 11 flight, and you have to fight through all of the traffic going to fireworks events throughout the city: Culver City, fireworks. Marina del Rey (by LAX), fireworks. There are a lot of us driving to those events from between 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm, serious traffic jams can be found. I would have a plan to enjoy Manhattan Beach that afternoon and evening, as it's 3 miles away from the airport, a short distance/less traffic.

The Dodger game starts earlier, 5:10 pm, but it won’t make any difference.

If you stay for the whole game expect it to end at approximately 8PM, based on the average length of games this year. If you leave immediately after the game there will be minimal after-game traffic as most everyone there will remain for the fireworks afterwards.

If you DO go to the game and leave immediately then you can plan on being al LAX at about 9pm, if you’re lucky and then you need to return your rental car.

Where will your luggage me?

Finally, there is no game in New Orleans as there is no team there.

My determination: go on the 3rd
