Orlando Science Center

Orlando Science Center is a glistening structure that looks like the product of a meeting between Greek-Roman architects and Star Trek engineers. The analogy applies to the activities inside as well. The museum strives to teach kids (and adults) about classical science using modern, hands-on, sometimes high-tech activities. The museum houses themed exhibit halls where patrons can explore the human body, modern technology, the solar system and other topics. The exhibits often change, so you can always learn something new. Its eight-story CineDome is billed as one of the world's largest movie theaters where they show large-format nature/technology films.

Walt Disney World

A place where the fantasy world of Walt Disney is brought to life, this mammoth resort is a magical adventure waiting to happen. From the futuristic globe of the Spaceship Earth and the thrilling rides of Disney's Hollywood Studios to France, Japan, Germany, Morocco and Italy Pavilions, Walt Disney World encompasses the farthest reaches of the earth and a fanciful stretch of boundless imagination. After the incredible success of Disneyland in Southern California in the 1950s, Walt Disney decided to expand his empire with the purchase of 27,443 acres (11,106 hectares) of land near Orlando, Florida in 1965. Although Walt Disney himself died in 1966, his vision was realized when Walt Disney World opened to global anticipation and unparalleled excitement in 1972. Since opening, the park has expanded to include four separate theme parks - the original Magic Kingdom with its iconic fairytale castle, alongside Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom. There are also several water parks, themed hotels, campgrounds, restaurants, fireworks shows and endless opportunities for fun!

Mary, Queen of the Universe Shrine is officially named as Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe.

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

In a tribute to the thrilling history of United States' space exploration, the Kennedy Space Center welcomes visitors to climb aboard a full size space shuttle replica, view moon rocks and view science closely. This famous space center is one of NASA's 10 field labs and has been the primary location for space launches containing humans since 1968. This center was where operations for the launch of the Apollo program as well as the Space Shuttle program, among others, were run from (although some of the actual launches occurred at the adjacent Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.) The overall campus covers 144,000 acres (583 square kilometers), with some 700 different facilities playing a very important role in NASA's operations. At the visitor's center, curious people can take a tour venturing deep into NASA's spaceport facilities, or visit the Rocket Garden, featuring eight massive rockets from past eras. The complex is also home to the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge.
