We have decided to go on 30th. Not a launch day. Nor a special day. So hopefully not as busy. Honestly this would work out for the best. If we were to go on the originally launch day we would have to change soooo much. And as u guys said. If it gets cancel on the day would be sooo disappointed. Either way. Sooo looking forward to go next week. First time. Kids would love it. I hope. 😝

Check the times of the launch, even delayed it could be early morning or late at night. Either way you can probably see it even from the Orlando area.

We went years ago and were at the space centre the day of a shuttle launch (coincidence and happy accident) but launch was then delayed by a day. We were in magic kingdom the next day and still saw the shuttle go up. We have not managed to time our trips with launches since then but will still be going to KSC when we go back as hubby is a big space nerd and is dying to see all the spaceX stuff going on there

We saw the final space shuttle launch 11 years ago from one of the malls east of Orlando -some distance away so couldn't hear it but was just glad to see. Back in 2003 we saw a mission to Mars launch from our apartment at Summer Bay - launch had been delayed a few times but eventually went at night-time so we were able to see it for quite a while.

We went to a morning launch in 2019 and then spent the rest of the day at the centre.

I'd thoroughly recommend to anyone thinking about it. It felt like being in Apollo 13 movie, sat on the bleachers watching!
