I’ve been following the space program since I was a kid in the 60s. This was a an amazing opportunity to go back and see where everything what has happened from. I definitely need to come back at some point when there is a launch going on so I can watch that before I kick the can.

We had a great time!

I would not sign up with a tour to NASA again. With all the morning pick ups from many locations you will not get to NASA until after 10 am. Then it can take 3-4 hrs to get back to you original pick up spot. Also on a tour you are limited to their scheduled time. You have to leave at 5:30 and park closes at 7. We didn’t get to do a lot at the park. Very rushed. Got in park rushed to see Atlantis the space shuttle, rushed to have lunch/picture with astronaut, then took tour bus ride to see up close launch pad A and B, where rocket are built, Touch moon rock, and more. Rushed back to purchase pictures we took and with picture with astronaut. Waited 30 min in line to get the astronaut autograph but missed it because we had to catch our bus. We saw a lot but we missed a lot as well. I would go back again but on my own. Takes 1 hr from central Orlando to NASA.

This was a great experience day. I did not get see everything in the museum but got to meet and astronaut, which was a good trade off. He talked about his experiences and answered questions about anything. We also had the opportunity to get a bus tour of the launch part areas and operational buidings. You do not go in these buildings or launch pads but it give you an idea of the overall site and a much closer view. There are opportunities to get out and and take photos.
