Disney Divequest in Epcot

This has to be the best value for money in Disney. At $175 it seems excessive but believe me it would be worth twice that much. The experience is enhanced by the staff who are just fantastic and can't do enough for you. The swim is just amazing not just the fish but the interaction with the park guest through... More

Best value for money in Disney, will be doing again this summer. The shark as it swam with us was awesome. The staff can't do enough to make the experience an experience to remember.

This was a wonderful dive for divers with just a few dives under their belts. The staff was great and welcoming, the care of the various animals impressive and the behind the scenes opportunity unparalleled. We were able to see large sharks and rays much closer than in the wild (fortunately they're all well fed), and it was fun communicating... More

They provide everything so if you are a diver and are at Epcot you need to plan to dive the aquarium. It is beautiful, clear, about 77 degrees, sharks, turtles, stingrays, fish and coral. But one of the best parts is that you swim past the glass and all the kids and their families wave at you. I was probably... More

This was a fun dive experience! We were treated very well by the Disney staff! The dive itself was easy, great visibility, no current and lots of sea life. But, the most fun was playing with the people who were watching. I kept laughing and flooding my mask!

There's not a lot of opportunities to dive next to sharks like you can at DiveQuest (at least here you know these sharks aren't going to impale you with their teeth). They start the excision with a unique backstage view of the operation and then the dive lasts about 40 minutes which is a perfect amount of time. You can... More

From start to finish, this was a fantastic experience--one of the best dives I've ever done. There are two reasons for this: first, the diverse assortment of marine life (four or five types each of sharks and rays, all completely unfazed by the presence of noisy, bubble-blowing divers) and second, the incredibly luxurious conditions (top-quality dive gear, friendly and helpful...

My husband and I did Divequest March 2015. We left our two little kids with a "Kid's Nite Out" sitter at the hotel (pricey, but very happy with it) and took a resort bus to Epcot. We easily found the group meet up spot on the right side of the entrance gates, at the Customer Service desk. The behind the... More

This was the second time I have done Divequest at Epcot. The first time was fantastic, and this time was equally awesome. The people who are working this attraction are top notch, very friendly and knowledgeable. You can tell they really care about the animals that they work with. Our guide Ellie was super, she definitely takes pride in her... More

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.
