    Dine with an Astronaut: Kennedy Space Center Tour

    After pickup from your selected location, it's just a 45-minute drive by bus from Orlando to the Kennedy Space Center. When you arrive, embark on a space adventure from the Visitor Complex as you explore the many world-renowned exhibits. With your admission ticket, enjoy an IMAX movie screening of Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon 3D -- presented and narrated by Tom Hanks -- or Space Station 3D, which will take you on a virtual trip to the International Space Station. Also on IMAX 3D is the powerful story of the Hubble Space Telescope. Visit the Rocket Garden to see the Redstone, Atlas and Titan rockets that first put NASA astronauts into space. Or, climb aboard Mercury, Gemini and Apollo capsules and experience the cramped quarters America's astronaut pioneers endured.

With NASA buses departing every 15 minutes from the Visitor Complex, you can get off the bus and spend as much time as desired at each location. First, take a NASA bus for a drive-by view of the space shuttle launch pad and experience the historic Apollo 8 send-off.
