Florida 2021

Where do I begin with this cluster fuck of a trip?

My plan was to see the SpaceX launch with my son. Then my husband said he wanted to go. I booked the tickets, the car, and the Airbnb. For the record, finding an Airbnb that had a hot tub but didn't charge you to heat it, sucked. They fully take advantage of you in Orlando. I hated finding an Airbnb here, and will never, ever come back to Orlando again.

So I found an Airbnb that had the cost of heating the hot tub included. It was near everything my husband wanted to see. My plan was to stay in the hot tub while he did whatever at Disney. I have never had an interest in anything Disney, so he went alone. While in the Airbnb, the smoke detector battery started beeping. We called the number listed, they came and removed the entire smoke detector. Ok. The beds were comfortable, but the hot tub never went above 95. 95!!!! I only booked this Airbnb because of the hot tub. Sigh.


We were supposed to see the Space X launch the next day at like 5am, but they changed the launch time to the next day. I didn't book our Airbnb for the launch change, so I ended up getting a shitty room at the Holiday Inn. I spent the money on an ocean front suite, but it wasn't worth it. The fucking toilet was broken, and to flush we had to hold the valve in the tank. I called twice to the front desk, they did nothing.

We did end up watching the launch from the beach, and in the end it was worth the extra costs, but never again will I go to Orlando.

The launch was amazing. It was at a little before 5am, we went to the beach with hundreds of other people.
