Quoting Jlarsson (Thread starter): 1. Is 1h 55min enough to clear immigration and get to T5?
2. Do I need to go outside the Transit area and then go through security again at T1?
1. In my opinion, that has the potential to be tight, but should be a doable transfer. There likely won't be any time to spare, though.
2. Unfortunately, yes. T5 at ORD is not directly connected to the other terminals, so you will actually need to leave the building and ride a tram to access T1. In my experience, security tends to flow relatively smoothly most of the time.
I'd say it's doable, but don't dawdle. Not checking bags will help. If you misconnect, though, there is a later UA flight (it's Flight 1567 and it leaves at 2039 local).

Yes. After getting off the train, I'd walk down the stairs, turn left, and walk down to the checkpoint at the end of Terminal 1 (especially if your flight is leaving from B1 as it did today). The line down there is often a little shorter.
I can't decide whether I miss the tulip or the bowling shoe more

I would be a little concerned, you have a connection to make in CPH, if you hit problems starting out, it will bite you the rest of your journey. Presumably, you are on the first flight in the morning from GOT, so the plane should be on the ground already. Customs / Immigration can be slow in ORD. Hey, if you miss your connection, they will put you on the next flight to LAS....
