Kennedy Space Center Day Trip with Transport from Orlando

Kennedy Space Center Day Trip with Transport from Orlando

Spend a day marveling at the magnificence of space travel at the Kennedy Space Center. Your approximate 11-hour tour begins with early morning pickup from select Orlando locations. Grab a seat on the coach and relax for the 45-minute ride to the space center.

Upon arrival at the KSC Visitor Complex, you're free to tour the stellar visitor complex at your leisure. Board the NASA bus for a quick trip to one of the many mind-blowing exhibits like the Early Space Exploration exhibit featuring stories and artifacts from missions like Gemini, or the Rocket Garden to view the first NASA rockets. Kids (and adults!) will love getting interactive at the Children’s Play Dome.

Continue to the Apollo/Saturn V Center, where you’ll relive Neil Armstrong’s moonwalk, touch a moon rock, and get a close-up view of the giant Saturn V rocket — the largest rocket ever made at 363 feet (110 meters) tall! Then take in a complimentary showing or two at the IMAX Theater, currently playing Hubble Telescope and Journey to Space, an extraordinary 3D documentary narrated by Patrick Stewart. And don’t leave without getting a full-sensory space experience at the Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit, featuring more than 60 interactive experiences!

Between stops, engage in savvy interactive displays, remember fallen astronauts at the Astronaut Memorial and take needed snack breaks (own expense) in the Rocket Garden or Orbit Cafe.

At the end of your tour, a coach will return you to the departure point in Orlando.

Our trip to the Kennedy Space Center was a great experience. There is so much history and information to take in! It definitely makes me proud to be an American and ever grateful to all of the heroes who have sacrificed to make the space program possible. NASA is one of the best things that we can invest in as a country.
