Did you know that kids under 5 can get into the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) for FREE in 2024?! KSC is a fun, immersive and educational experience located on the east coast of Florida, just about an hour from Downtown Orlando. The Junior Space Explorer Pass gets eligible children into KSC for free! Registration for 2024 is open now through February 18 – so hurry and grab yours today!
What is it?!
The Junior Space Explorer Pass gives free admission to eligible kids to KSC through December 31st. Blackout dates for some rocket launches and special events do apply, so be sure to double check validity before you head to the coast.
What are the eligibility requirements?
Children must be Florida residents and 5 or younger at the time of redemption. First you will need to obtain a voucher online, these are not available at the doors so fill out the form ahead of your first visit. You will need to bring the voucher AND proof of age to Kennedy Space Center the first time you go to redeem the pass. Digital copies of birth certificates will be accepted along with any other government issued ID for the child.
How do I get one?
Once you fill out the voucher form online, you will take it and the proof of your child’s age to the Will Call or Information desk upon arrival. Staff will complete your registration at that time and give you your pass. As long as your child is 5 or under at this time, you are eligible for the pass. This means that if your child is turning 6 before the end of the year, they are still eligible as long as their first visit is before their 6th birthday.
What about parents and siblings older than five?
Parents and older siblings will require their own tickets to enter Kennedy Space Center. Annual passes are available for purchase for individuals and families. Check the ticket webpage when planning your trip because there are often deals running and two day tickets are much less expensive per day and a one day ticket.
