Happiest Place On Earth
Orlando offers non-stop fun with more world-class family attractions than any other place on earth because in addition to the thrills of the Walt Disney World theme parks, you’ll also find exceptional golf and world-famous beaches within easy driving distance.
Cocoa Beach, Florida’s beautiful Space Coast, is the perfect place to ride a wave, explore the shore, ramble down the 800-foot boardwalk of the Cocoa Beach Pier and check out Ron Jon Surf Shop – just to name a few options! Then it’s a countdown to blastoff at the Kennedy Space Center and a chat with an astronaut!
Visit your favorite Disney characters, watch spirited parades, catch stunning fireworks extravaganzas, conquer mountains, cruise down an exotic river, and brave a ghostly mansion! These are just a few of the fun things you can do in the Magic Kingdom! Discover exciting attractions and enchanting international pavilions, and discover the realms of Future World and World Showcase at Epcot! You’ll be center stage at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, where movie magic comes to life! And the largest animal theme park in the world, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, invites you to meet more than 1,700 animals across 250 species! Enjoy all this from the Sheraton Vistana Resort, which is surrounded by central Florida’s many attractions and activities, yet serves as a welcome oasis apart from the crowds.
Inspiration comes standard with your admission to the iconic Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. The center is organized into Mission Zones where attractions and tours are by their chronological era, from the dawn of space exploration to current and ongoing missions. Celebrate the pioneers of NASA’s early space programs, learn about the race to the moon, and how what began as a space race between two world superpowers fostered inspiration about perseverance, ingenuity and destiny. Now, witness the size and scale of the Saturn V moon rocket, and feel the emotion of the Apollo era with a captivating collection of experiences. Stand in awe of an American icon at the permanent home of the actual space shuttle Atlantis. Then, strap yourself in for liftoff at the Shuttle Launch Experience®. Thirty years of NASA’s Space Shuttle Program comes to life in this Mission Zone. Then learn about NASA missions, from where we are now to where we’re going next!
What better way to culminate your exploration of space than by hearing a firsthand account about life in space from a veteran NASA astronaut? Make the most of every moment including a chat with an astronaut.
