Kennedy Space Center Tour
- Board a fleet of 44 air-conditioned buses and observe first hand the Apollo/Saturn V Center and the LC-39 Observation Gantry. Guided bus tours depart each day from 9:30am (seasonal), and run continuously throughout the day. Also on tour is the acclaimed Apollo Saturn V Center, where guests can relive the days of America's moon landings by experiencing a simulated launch from mission control, viewing a real 363 foot long Saturn V moon rocket and taking a front row seat as man takes his first steps on the moon.

Astronaut Encounter - Guests to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will have the opportunity to meet a real astronaut every day. This innovative program consists of question and answer sessions, mission briefings, video footage space artifacts and personal stories of space travel as told by those who have lived it.

IMAX Theatres - Two different larger than life films take you on an awe-inspiring journey into space on screens over five stories tall. Dramatic footage, photographed in space by the astronauts, give each of the IMAX films an exciting 'you are there' feeling.

U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame - Located at the entrance of Kennedy Space Center, the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame houses the world's largest collection of astronaut memorabilia, exhibits and tributes. Realistic training simulators allow you to feel the pressure of four times the force of gravity, ride a river across Mars, and land a Space Shuttle.

Lunch with an Astronaut - This meal opportunity, currently offered every day of the week at 12:00pm at the Visitor Complex, includes a banquet style lunch with a speaking appearance by a real Astronaut. The popular program incorporates a fun highlight video of Astronauts living and working in space, a brief oration on his/her thoughts and individual time with each family for Q&A and photos. The meal is topped off by a wonderful selection of desserts. Program runs approximately 1.5 hour. (Reservations required)

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

An amazing experience. This is a full day of jaw dropping sights and incredible information. It's a good idea to sit down and plan your day as soon as you get there from the guide that is given on entry, many of the events overlap (obviously so people don't all try to go to one) and you could miss out on something you want to see, we got caught out with the IMAX show times. Definitely my favourite Orlando trip.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

One of the best tours I've been on! The humidity was bad the day we attended but it didn't stop us enjoying the many things on offer to see and do. We spent the whole day there and could really have done with another half day to see everything! Just a note thought, we thought 'dinner with an astronaut' meant that we had an astronaut on our table with us, but it was one astronaut in a whole room of diners talking about his experiences. Which was still good!
