    I hope you will have a good time vs I hope you have a good time

    Hi,

    What's the difference between:

    'I hope you have a good time' and 'I hope you will have a good time"

    Thanks

    Re: I hope you will have a good time vs I hope you have a good time

    The first is more natural and colloquial.
