Sounds like there is a lot of politics going on with kashrus on Orlando right now. No, I have zero inside info. I'm just saying this based on other things that I have seen on this forum lately about restaurants changing hechsherim. And now you mention this guy who knowingly hangs up an expired cert.

Basically, these places in MCO have ten days where they may make literally a third of their profit for a year. They need frum tourists to survive.

I have no advice other than to say clarify which place(s) you are willing to eat at BEFORE you head out on your excursions. It's no fun to try to figure out if you're eating kosher while standing in a parking lot and doing research on an iphone.

I actually made some research before my trip and he had a legit looking website and reviews. It was only once I arrived to this place, a dark and quiet residential cul-de-sac that I turned to my wife and said "this is how people get killed". Until this owner came out in his shorts and sandals with his unassuming Israeli accent. He had this menu on a tablet, while we sat on his couch and quad chairs in his dining room. 'Twas an experience to say the least.

You know, it occurred to me that on my next vacation, I can just create a website for me new "restaurant" which will just be my hotel room. I will make people pizza bagels in a toaster oven.

Maybe I'll rent the room next door and have a fleishigs place as well.
