As an older group we found this the best of the ones we visited. If you go to Orlando in winter remember if can be chilly.

When I found out you could dive at Disney we had to do it. My daughter is 11 years old and was very nervous doing her PADI open water in Egypt with all the waves so I thought this was a good calm environment for a second holiday dive. I had to call from the UK which took patience as... More

So, what do you do if your children aren't certified scuba divers? This is what you do - in full dive gear, from the surface only - BC's are designed to float and you aren't wearing any weight, so everything stays on the top. The behind the scenes tour of the aquarium and 30 min in the aquarium with the... More

My husband and I dove the Epcot Dive Quest in 2008 and it was amazing. It is definitely worth the price. They take you on a tour of the facility and provide all of the gear. No place other than around the other side of the world or in the Florida Keys can you be guaranteed to see as much... More

You accept that you are swimming in a fish tank. That said, what's bad about 200 foot visibility, giant sea turtles, sharks and rays, even guitarfish? It's only 25 feet deep, and there's no current or chop. I liked it enough to go back.

Disney made this dive very special. It's an easy dive with no current. What makes it unique is that you are diving in an aquarium with windows open to viewing by guest at the Living Seas attraction and the Coral Reef restaurant. Disney provides all the dive gear. All you need is your C Card.

Well worth the cost, and plan on spending the extra $35 for the DVD which they can give you right after the dive.

This is a once in a lifetime experience. You would not think that diving in such an aquarium would be this big of a deal. It is the stuff dreams are made of! The dive team and EPCOT in general, thought of everything to make this special. All the details are already listed by everyone else here, but I still... More

From the very beginning to the end we where treated with a red carpet. They gave is a tour of the facility and explained everything to us including when they feed the sharks so they don't eat us. Lol they had all of the equipment that you need. If you have RX dive mask you can use that. You will... More
