the scope is a breeze, i've had quite a few. only remember the first one, it was done over ten years ago. they've gotten alot better since then.
you get nothing to eat or drink starting at midnight the night before the scope. bring a driver. the driver also helps you to remember what the doctor has to say after the scope is done. most likely you'll be a little out of it for a little while after the scoping is finished. years ago, they gave enough sedation to last for hours afterward. this last one i had done, which was about
three weeks ago, i could have driven myself home, but i done remember a thing from the actual procedure. oh and the pretty picture you get to have for a Souvenir . :) (it wasn't pretty in my case....lol)
have fun in FL, and goodluck with your scope when you get back.
