    is there an aquarium in Animal Kingdom where you can watch hippos underwater ? if so where can I go and see this great attraction ? Are there any other aquariums in the other parks as well?

    Hello, Sheri!

    Yes, there is a wonderful attraction at the Animal Kingdom park where you can see the hippos underwater: Pangani Forest Exploration Trail. You can also see gorillas, meerkats, okapi, and the real life versions of Kim Possible's side kick mole rat.  When  you are walking through this attraction, make sure and ask cast members questions if you have them.   They are truly walking encyclopedias!

    Epcot also has a large aquarium in Future World at The Seas with Nemo & Friends Pavilion.  You can discover several attractions here as well as dine at the Coral Reef restaurant, which has an entire aquarium wall. 

    And if you are really adventurous, at Typhoon Lagoon water park, you can actually dive in and be part of the aquarium at Shark Reef.  And since I'm pretty wimpy, I prefer the observation area where I can just watch the fish.  By the way, this water is colder, so be prepared before you step in.

    Finally, if you'd like something really up close and personal, there are several tours offered at Epcot's Living Seas:  Dolphins in Depth, Epcot DiveQuest, & Seas Aqua Tour
