    Hi theres supposed to be a shuttle launch while we're at disney. We have tried in the past to get to the kennedy space center to see it but then four days in a row the launch was cancelled.

    Can we see the launches from disney or somewhere closer to disney than KSC to avoid going all that way and then it not happening?

    One year we were able to see it from DTD. You can actually see the launch all the way down here in Ft. Myers as well. It's really amazing.

    As a child growing up in St. Petersburg on the west coast, we used to go outside and watch the Mercury launches when the weather was clear. If we could see those, I'm sure you can see the shuttle from Disney!
