Teslarati's SpaceX sets date for first Florida launch of its kind in more than half a century explains that something different will happen. For those that want to read the article first, I've used the spoiler alert utility for the surprises.

Spoiler alert: hover cursor over block quote to reveal what it will be:

They will launch into a polar orbit from the East coast of the US

See answers to this question for more background on that maneuver from that launch site:

How does one dogleg from Florida to a sun-synchronous orbit?

Question: Will they need to do that special trajectory maneuver mentioned in the second spoiler alert in order to do the thing in the first spoiler alert?
