Walt Disney World today hosted the first official appearance of the entire crew of NASA space shuttle mission STS-118 following their return to Earth on Aug. 21. The day was dedicated to honoring the Endeavour crew and recognizing the inspirational achievement of teacher-turned-astronaut Barbara Morgan.

Disney’s Epcot and Magic Kingdom theme parks were the backdrop as cheering park guests and school children interacted with the astronauts and witnessed history in the making. One highlight, fittingly at the Epcot attraction Mission: SPACE presented by HP, paid tribute to the STS-118 crew — Commander Scott Kelly, Pilot Charles Hobaugh and mission specialists Tracy Caldwell, Richard Mastracchio, Dave Williams, Barbara Morgan and Alvin Drew Jr.
