Hi, Are you parents of aidtrismommy & dancingdisneygirl? I am getting confused. The profile fits with 2 boys age 3 & 1 but I feel I have missed something

Yes you will burst into tears, you have to

For those coming to Florida before the cruise - the Kennedy Space Center calendar currently shows a Delta 2 launch on Monday the 17th and a Space Shuttle launch on Tuesday the 18th.

The Delta 2 has a window from 6:35 to 6:49 AM, and the shuttle has a target of 4:25 AM.

If you are staying later, there is a scheduled test of an Ares 1-X on Sunday the 30th, time TBA.
I was going to be post 1500 but just taken so long to compile the post you beat me

Hoping to see another Shuttle launch, fantastic sight.

I am sure you'll have a chance for post 1600, and I wouldn't be surprised if we exceed 2,000 in the next four weeks.

Regarding the Shuttle, I have heard there is a bus service between Orlando and the space center. Does anybody know if this is true, and who to contact?

I really want to be there for the launch, but I will be fighting fatigue behind the wheel if I get up at midnight to drive to KSC.

Never mind, I just found them:

At $427 for the family, this is too rich for my blood - especially considering how easily a launch can be postponed.

Hi all...1500+ posts..impressive!
Trusha- have added you to the list!
I will be posting a list of all participants soon...and then PMing the details...so PLEASE let me know if you should be on the list but arent before I pm. I will be doing it this weekend- the only 'window' in my mad schedule at the moment!
Our dog goes on his holidays this weekend...off to the outlaws for the summer!...makes it all seem a little closer
all our plans are coming together...hotels, transport, villa,,,cruise
Just park tickets to sort and we are good!
MrR- our DD13 was seriously disappointed she wont be with her sister in the teens club...although her sister feels a little differently! One reason we left it two years between cruises was so Lu could 'experience' the Stack, but its not to be.....the other reason being the cost ofcourse
Our DD13 is a little shy too..but she did ok on our last cruise...so i am hopeful she will make friends and have a good time! Other DD is a social monster. No worries there...infact...maybe a little too confident! Some non-dis friends ( yes..we have a couple of friends in the real world too) are cruising with us, and their DD will be with Juli in the teen club!
anyway...stuff to do......as ever!

Our friends went to WDW in May. They were able to get tickets to the lauch. It looked really neat.

We thought that wee would see a launch when we were there in Feb., but it was rescheduled due to a faulty valve.

Hi Denise,

Our DD Rebecca is 7 as well and is a little shy compared to her little brother. She just doesn't get how he makes friends so easily.

Can't believe we are 1 month away - I'll bring the tissues too!

Oh ladies, I am the biggest cry baby around!!! I will start to get choked up when we get our picture taken and I then I will be blinking like crazy so my tears dry up when they call our name to enter the ship. My family knows just when I am about to lose it because they look at me and say, "There she goes again."

I was going to joke that you would be able to recognize me at the terminal because I would be the one standing there cryin' like a baby, but it sounds like I am going to have plenty of company!

Although it is cool to be there (saw it close up once), it is great just to be in Florida for a launch. You won't be able to hear it, but you should be able to see it from Orlando. Am I being selfish if I hope it is postponed until at least late Friday afternoon (not bad weather, of course, maybe just some minor mechanical problems)? DH is a huge air and space fan. He spent most of Monday afternoon on wechoosethemoon.org. It would make his vacation if he could see another launch, even from a distance.

I don't think you are being overly selfish, but you are being unrealistic. The launch windows for this mission are very early in the morning; for an afternoon launch the mission would have to be delayed until we are all back home.

But, like I said, there is a test of the Ares X-1 on Sunday. Just postpone your trip home!
