Ok, this place is fabulous. However, we paid a lot extra for the"up close tour"..... Not worth it. That means you are taken by bus on restricted roads to look across the water at the launch pad. You're not at all up close to anything. And, it took two hours out of the time we could've spent at Kennedy. Skip it and save money. There are scheduled attractions so believe me, you can't afford the two hours. Very cool place thought.
Tip: be prepared for lots of lines, first come first serve on a scooter, lots of walking, it's basically another amusement park. oh, and if you see a sign that says"bagged entry only" on the road, what they really mean is turn around and go fifty miles out of your way because up ahead is a checkpoint, although you're in the middle of no where.

"Great Trip to KSC"
October, 2015
I took my wife and 9yo son to the KSC, and we had a great time! I booked the KSC tickets through Reserve Orlando, and it was very easy. I went right to the will call window at KSC, and went in without a problem. Would recommend to friends and family.
Tip: It was hot going there in September. Wear sunscreen!

"Fun Education"
July, 2015
The Kennedy Space Center is very informative. It was a fun educational trip for the adults as well as our 9 yr old grandson. One day was enough but you should arrive when it opens and stay until it closes. All the facilities are air conditioned but it was very hot going from building to building. The employees were very helpful and informative.
Tip: There wasn't a lot of food available when we were there. Some of the food carts were not open.

"Impressive and Inspiring!"
February, 2015
Excellent tour and fantastic exhibits. I visited the Kennedy Space center about 15 years ago and, not surprisingly, exhibits at the Center have changed considerably. There is much to see and it is well worth the price of admission.
Tip: Only regret is that many of us were turned away from seeing one of the IMAX films because the theater was full for the last showing. If you want to see both IMAX movies, I recommend planning other Space Center sightseeing around the available IMAX showings.

"KPC a Must See and Do!!"
February, 2015
We were an adult group of 4, got to the KSC first thing in the morning using Reserve Orlando for our discounted tickets. We were checked through in 2 minutes and then spent the whole day till 5 pm visiting every exhibit. This a must wee see and do if your close by. One of the best tours and exhibits we have seen.
Tip: Use the whole day, if on a budget bring a pinic lunch, you can go out to your car and get back in by getting a hand stamp.

We arrived gone noon and only had until 5 that day to try and see everything. I didn't really think we'd need a full day but was wrong. We missed out on the meet the astronaut presentation because we were having too much fun in the building with the space shuttle launch simulator . The part I enjoyed most was the bus tour. The driver told us all about the external buildings and the launch site. Even told us why the site has a barb wire fence that is curved at the top (help keep the alligators out!) Saw a couple of alligators, couple of racoons and a turtle on the grounds. Guide said they no longer have electronic sliding doors in certain areas as the gators would just wander in. All in all a fun informative day

Now I know why space exploration is so important. Purchased tour tickets for the wrong day but Bob in the bus load was able to change our tickets on the spot with out having to go wait in another long line. Great service. Also Bob gave my children some coins to remember their trip. Nice touch. Can not wait to come back.

Went to Kennedy space center visitors center today. I love history and remember the moon landings and moonwalks when I was a young teenager. My 23 year old daughter was with me and I hoped the space center would give her an appreciation of space. The first place we went was the Heroes and Legends building. There were two movies which gave about as little information as possible. The exhibits after that were ok. The rocket garden information was interesting but no questions afterwards. I don't think the guide could have answered anyway. The tour of the launching pads and the exhibits in the Saturn V building were awesome. Unfortunately there were no docents to answer questions. The Atlantis shuttle was neat to see. Overall, the place had a very dated feel. It was like being in the 50's that was trying to be in the 90's. But I'm glad I came.

I was without wheels so took the Gray line Tour to Kennedy from Orlando . I would definitely recommend to others. We had enough time there to see most of what is there. It can be done if you keep moving. Lunch at the Orbit Cafe was also good. There are lots of people there who gladly answer questions. The day I went it was not very crowded so that was nice. Our driver/guide Mike was very knowledgeable. He gave us a lot of pointers on how to make the best use of our time. Tour bus drivers are also very knowledgeable at Kennedy.

This was a unique and amazing experience for my husband and I! As baby boomers watching the space race on our black & white TV's it was incredible to stand in the places where history was made. We took an additional bus tour to the launch pads and surrounding buildings. From the bald eagle nest, alligators, rockets and the transport crawler it was an extra that was worth every penny. The complex had so many great things to see. The Saturn Rocket, Atlantis Shuttle, shuttle simulator, the moon buggy, the space station 3 D movie and we even got to touch a moon rock! For all generations it's a day well spent!
