Fun for Little Ones at Mission: SPACE

  Ok, so little ones, and some adults for that matter, and Mission: SPACE really aren't two things that go together, but the Advanced Training Lab is, it's the post show area of Mission Space. It's in the area after you exit the ride and before the gift shop, you can also go through the exit, which is to the left of the entrance to Mission Space.
  The four activities in the Advanced Training Lab are:
 Space Base: Which is an interactive play area, think McDonald's Playplace, with tunnels, slides, places to climb, and more. With a little one this is probably where most of your time will be spent. We've been in there many times with my 2 year old and he loves it, we've had to pull him out a few times.
 Postcards from Space: This is where you can create a space themed video postcard and email you family and friends, and yourself if you want, so they can see how much fun your having in Disney World. This is another thing my son loves, especially when we get home and he sees it cause he loves pictures and videos of himself.
 Expedition Mars: This is a one player video game where you explore the surface of Mars. Now most little ones may be to small to understand how to play, but the controls are a joystick and a button, so it can be fun to let them play around with, or do together with them.
 Mission: SPACE Race: Here 2 teams complete to see who can get their rocket from Mars to earth first. This is for older kids and adults, but it can be fun to watch.
  All and all the Advanced Training Lab is a fun place that some people may over look with little ones. I for one think it's worth a stop, not only is it fun, but it's inside and on the hot days at in Florida, which can be many, it's a nice break. So next time you're in Epcot, even if you skip Mission: SPACE, head over to the Advanced Training Lab, and have a magical trip.
