Your Orlando vacation is not complete without a trip to Kennedy Space Center. Just 45 minutes from popular Orlando attractions and theme parks is NASA’s launch headquarters – the only place on Earth where you can tour launch areas, meet an Astronaut, see giant rockets, train in spaceflight simulators, and even view a launch.

Experience more on your vacation to Orlando with a daytrip to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, where the sky isn't the limit - it's just the beginning.

Worlds apart from Orlando’s theme parks – but only 45 minutes away. Plan on a full day to explore NASA’s launch headquarters, located on a huge island wildlife refuge eight times the size of Manhattan.
