    I'll be doing the Aqua Tour and have read that guests will be able to see us walking in our gear. Do you know approx when that is? I'd like for the others in my party to see me and would like to give them an est. time of when to arrive to do so.

    Hello Ashley!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so excited to hear you will get to experience Epcot Seas Adventures – Aqua Tour.

    You will be able to enjoy an amazing snorkeling experience in a stunning 5.7-million-gallon saltwater ocean made by man, and swim with over 65 species of marine life! What I love about this tour is that you do not need to be SCUBA-certified, so beginners are welcome.

    Keep in mind snorkeling is actually part of a comprehensive 2.5 hour tour, and you will have about 30 minutes to snorkel towards the end of your experience. Prior to that you will tour the infrastructure and participate in different activities like getting answers to questions you might have about the inhabitants of Caribbean Coral Reef, and watching an educational video. You might even have the chance to learn more about nutrition, and then finally receive instructions and learn how to use your equipment before snorkeling. I would advise you to tell your party to be ready to see you about 1.5 hours into your tour, this way they will definitely catch some great photos of you inside the tank. I am sure they will not mind waiting a bit, and they can even make dining reservations at Coral Reef Restaurant if they are interested in having VIP seats while you enjoy your time in the water. At the time you check in for your experience, you can also ask Cast Members if they know at approximately what time you will be in the tank, then you can tell your party before starting the tour. 

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ashley! I hope you have an amazing time at Epcot Seas Adventures – Aqua Tour.

    Best magical wishes,
