You could rent a car and do 3 to 5 hours if you hustled getting off on your own. I hear it takes two days to do it justice, but Im sure you could see enough on your own that it would be worth it. Have you been to one of those 3D movies? They are amazing, if its snowing it seems like its snowing on you, so to see the 3D movie there would have to be fun, though there are so many other things you will want to see.

If you have any interest in that type of thing Id go. Iv seen more than my share growing up, my Dad worked for NASA.

This is a fun place to go. Get there early and take the "up close" tour it is the best. You will get to see some cool stuff. It is a full day to get it all in so I would be there when they open.

Post-cruise excursions usually include time to transport you to the airport. Excursions typically disembark first (or after VIPs). You reclaim your luggage and board a bus with you luggage beneath you. Check the excursion details as if you are going to book it and you should see the departure time. Of course you can check with the excursions desk on board to verify that you will have enough time.

I sure enjoyed the tour around the space center, just be sure you do have enough time, it is worth it.

We rented a car and drove ourselves and then to Orlando. As I recall, we were able to purchase just the admission tickets through the ship without having to pay for the excursion.

Be sure to wave at my old office if you go - it's right on the corner
