Know More about this tour

Your Kennedy space center tour begins after an approximate 45-minute drive from Orlando. From the Visitor Complex, view rockets from all eras of space exploration in the Rocket Garden, and see an actual Gemini program capsule on display in Early Space Exploration. Walk beneath a massive Saturn V rocket, one of the most powerful ever built, at the Apollo/Saturn V Center and relive Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon and experience the thunderous rumble of a rocket lift-off!

Continue with two IMAX space movies viewed on five-story screens IMAX A Beautiful Planet and Journey To Space 3D, which takes you on a virtual trip to the International Space Station. Check out the Astronaut Encounter to hear actual astronauts discuss their experiences and get photos of these heroes.

Finish your day by boarding a full-size Space Shuttle mock-up and strap in for a virtual launch into space on the Shuttle Launch Experience. Orbit the earth in this awesome simulation replicating the sights, sounds and feelings of an authentic shuttle launch.

Tour Options: Ugrade your tour to have lunch with an actual astronaut! Sit down for a meal with a member of NASA's Astronaut Corps and ask everything you ever wanted to know about what it's like to be in space. Or choose Space Pass Plus, which combines all of the above with a guided tour of the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB), NASA Causeway and A/B Camera Stop and a look at the countdown clock at Press Site, a crawler transporter used to move Apollo moon rockets and the Operations and Checkout building.

Finally, relax aboard the bus as you enjoy return transport to Orlando.

    We went to the Kennedy Space Centre for the day as part of a tour group. The driver was friendly and helpful and tge day at NASAitself was amazing. Interactive staff, great displays and great history. The Atlantis exhibit is spectacular. Highly recommended. Even some wet weather couldn't put a dampener on our day. A must do.

    Amazing tour! Our driver and guide, Stuart, did a great job of welcoming us and provided us a suggested itinerary from his 15 years of doing the KSC tour. Highly recommended!

    This was a very interesting trip. History is being created there every day. There are lots of short shows and many exhibits to look at one of the best things for me was the bus tour. It is a must go see if in Florida. My only problem was that the trip was a bit to long for us.

    We had enoug time to visit all the space centre. The visit was very interesting and informative - you need a good knowledge of English to understand everything.

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Kennedy Space Center. The Dolphin Tour company excursion, led by Bob and Stuart, was professional and informative. Their suggested time schedule for the center was accurate and helpful. When I called the day before to get the specifics for our pick up point, the receptionist was helpful and directed us to a point with free parking instead of the one assigned. The van was a bit early, so glad we were there ahead of time as well. Note that if you are staying at a Disney property (Swan and Dolphin are NOT part of the WDW resort network) you will have to use or get your own transportation to the pick up point.

    Absolutely amazing! Should not miss! Once in a lifetime experience! Brought me to tears! My 9 year old daughter LOVED it!!! Stuart, the driver and guide gave us a wonderful suggested itinerary!!! Make sure NOT to be late or you will not be allowed into events once they start. Discipline is key here.

    We thoroughly enjoyed this day and appreciated that the driver, Stuart, was willing to stay so we could watch the launch that evening, Tuesday, August 6.
