Chat With an Astronaut at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex!

While we talk mostly about the Disney Theme Parks here at Disney Tips, sometimes we will add information on other area attractions. There is a lot of exciting news coming out of Kennedy Space Center that we thought we would share.

With astronauts returning to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, a new extra experience is about to debut! It’s called Chat With an Astronaut.

Here’s the information from the Kennedy Space Center website:


For the first time in almost two years, astronauts are coming back to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex! With the return of daily astronaut appearances comes a brand-new add-on enhancement just in time for the holidays.  

During this new experience, the Astronaut of the Day will sit down in a casual, small-group setting to answer your most pressing questions. Enjoy a sampling of food and beverages while having a group conversation about what it is really like to live and work in space. With plenty of time for an engaging Q & A session, you are sure to leave feeling truly acquainted with a space pioneer and equipped with incredible stories to share for years to come.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
