Gateway to Walt Disney World Resort and home to the world-famous Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral is the place to explore the skies, the seas and the magical places in between.
Stand on the Launch Complex Observation Gantry to get an aerial view of the space shuttle launch pads and the International Space Station Center. Or tour the Air Force Space and Missile Museum, where the whole family can learn more about the United States heritage of space exploration. (Note: Kennedy Space Center entry fee may apply.)
The Cape has all kinds of outdoor adventures, with some of the best surfing beaches on the East Coast. If deep sea fishing is more your style, journey out on a charter, where you can try to catch grouper, snapper and more. Or check out the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, where bald eagles, manatees and alligators are just a few of the species that call the Cape home. You can also stroll through the Brevard Zoo to the "Paws-On Interactive Zone," where your family can be just a whisker away from many fascinating animals native to Florida.
Best of all, Port Canaveral is located approximately an hour away from Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando. For your most magical vacation yet, consider taking a trip to Orlando to visit the theme parks before or after your cruise. From the high-energy thrills of Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park to the international inspiration of Epcot theme park to the fairytale fantasy of Magic Kingdom theme park, there's something to delight every member of your traveling party.
