The only issue with this tour is that it needed to be longer! They cut out of Kennedy to get to the airport for early departing flights. Since they had several buses, it would be nice if they offered to take a later bus for people who had flights after 6.
NASA was amazing if you have never seen it before and are interested. Very rushed and did not leave much time. Like I stated in my overall review. there was wasted time waiting for people who did not make it to the first bus at 45 minutes resulting in waiting ton the bus for 20 minutes in order to go over to the visitor center. We were told we had about 6 hours and then after traveling time had about half the time.
Best day of our vacation! We only had four hours but could have spent all day here! We were there when it opened at 9:00 and it wasn't too crowded. So fascinating. Saw the space shuttle Atlantis and took a bus tour of the launch sites. Really learned a lot.
We spent 3 days prior to our cruise in Orlando, but the day before our cruise we spent at Kennedy Space Center and it was excellent. I would, however, recommend that if you can, do it in TWO days rather than one. There is so much to see and do that you simply cannot experience it all in one day. But one day is better than no days, so DEFINITELY make it part of your trip! We had lunch with an astronaut which was great and enjoyed the free bus tour of out to the Saturn V area and the Shuttle Atlantis exhibit must NOT be missed.
