I actually was the one who broke Julie in - LOL...after I found the thread here I emailed her and she had no clue what I was talking about.
If Gus Bilirakis is your congressman, you must go through his office. Kathy Castor shouldn't help you if you are not located in their district.

Thanks so much to you both. No Gus B is our congressman, but Julie from Kathy C's office was able to forward our request directly to his NASA liason, who already emailed us to let us know he was working on our request.

We had each sent emails to Gus B before but I guess they just never got where they needed to! Thank you both so much for your help!!!

Our congressperson's office is SO lame. The staff said, sure you can get tickets, if you call Kennedy Space Center directly and buy them. I received an email that actually said the same thing. Seriously? Just say you don't know what I'm talking about it...I actually thought that response was really rude. Here is the exact email below.

"If you’re interested in Kennedy Space Center tickets, I would encourage you to visit this website: http://www.kennedyspacecenter.com/buy-tickets.aspx

Wow...that doesn't sound very nice! Now I'm afraid to email my congressman.

I just emailed my congressman's office! Thank you OP and everyone else who have shared their information with us. We had planned on spending the day at WDW but upgraded to the KSF verandah and I blew my February vacation budget on that. My five year old will be thrilled if this is an extra perk to his already awesome Disney vacation!

I just emailed Denny Rheburg (sp? I can never remember HOW to spell it) from Montana, and am hoping that there are passes available for May 2011

I sent an email to my congressman a few weeks ago, figured they might have ignored the email since i never got a confirmation or response, then today to my great surprise I got an email that said they had sent the info to NASA and they will let me know what they find out! I know that does not mean I have tickets, but hey at least they requested them for me, there is a chance we will get them!!! My boys would love going there, and there is a shuttle launch during our stay!

Not to be the bearer of bad news, but if you are going in February, there are no tickets available..all gone as they only alot a certain amount to congress - at least that's what my congressman's aide told me yesterday. We are going the first week in February, about two weeks before the launch. I hope he was wrong for your boys sake. I know that mine would have loved to have gone too but if I have to buy tickets at ages two and five, I'll spend the day prior at WDW!

Got a reply, Shelia from the office got in touch with NASA, and will be emailing them the request in November, as they will not grant tickets more than six months in advance! Also she is submitting two seperate requests, as we have four adults, and one child, so we are requesting by the two seperate travel parties!
