For those who are not getting a response or not having any luck with passes, are you making sure you are asking for passes for the visitor's complex only? The congressman's office may think you are wanting passes for a shuttle launch. (which are hard, if not possible to get.)

Make sure to clarify you want passes for Kennedy Space Center Vistor's complex only.

Good luck!!

I requested tickets from my Congressman, 3 weeks ago and was notified they were granted for 10/21/2010, today.

So it definitely works! Good luck everyone!

I'm so bummed. I just spoke with my congressmans office and they said they weren't aware of any such program! He looked into it but came back telling me it would be $43 a person. Can anyone help?

Mr. Malaguti:

Good evening. I’m writing from the office of Congressman Rob Wittman. I checked with NASA, and we can submit a request for up to four (4) complimentary passes for tours of the Kennedy Space Center for constituents. Would you like me to try to do this for you?

Best,

Gordon Neal

Lottery system

Thanks for posting this wonderful info! I emailed my congressman's office (to the staff asst who handles White House tours..got the info off his website). Figured I would go ahead and send in a request now b/c Mar 2011 (spring break) could get full! She responded in about 2 hrs, saying she fwded my note to KSC and that they are now on a lotto system so she won't hear back until about 1 month prior to our arrival.

Here's to hoping we get them so I can save that $$ for the cruise!

I just found out we got our free passes for November, but it took months!! First, my congressman's office had no idea what I was talking about. I actually referred his assistant to the DIS. He did a lot of research, and found out you can only apply 6 months in advance. I checked back with him in May and he put the request in. It took until just the other day to finally get the confirmation. I got a letter from NASA that was fax to the congressman's office stating our tickets would be waiting for us at will call. It cover 2 adults and 2 children, to all attractions for two days, although we will only be there one. I am so excited!!!!! Thank you to the DIS!!!!

My DMIL was also told this week that there were no more tickets for Oct. They gave her a hard time at first so I was at little curious to see if they didn't just tell her there were no more just so she would stop bothering them.

I requested tickets for the Launch on 2/26/10 and we are on a wait list.
We don't have our flights purchased yet, so now we will plan to fly in 2 days before our flight, just in case we do get tickets. Not really expecting them, but you never know!

We tried last year and got the runaround from bothe Congress people and our SEnators in New York. First they told they didn't know anything about the tickets then referred us to the other branch of Congress. We paid our own way and had a wonderful time. I would reccommend everyone go at least once. We spent one and a half days at the visitors center and a half day at the astonaut museum.

I live in Delaware, and I'm waiting to hear back. The assistant wasn't sure about the program, but now I have better wording to give her if she doesn't find anything.

I e-mailed my Congressman. I got a reply from an assistant in DC. He doesn't know anything about it, but is looking into it. He said he e-mailed a contact at Kennedy today. So, we'll see what happens.

Hopefully, he will come back with a positive reply.
