    My DH and I are wanting to go scuba diving at the epcot center on our trip. Are there places we can leave our three children, 13, 10, 6, while we dive since they are not dive certfied?

    Hi Jeri Lynn!

    For Epcot's DiveQuest, there are observation areas non-divers can watch, but I'm not sure if you'd want to leave your oldest (13) to tend to the others for that period (the actual diving is about 30 minutes, but the entire experience from start to finish is closer to 3 hours). The Park doesn't have any monitored or day-care type services. There are other things to try that don't require SCUBA certification, such as the Seas Aqua Tour or Dolphins in Depth, but there are age restrictions to those (at least 8 for Seas and at least 13 for Dolphins in Depth). Unfortunately, it may be one of those experiences where one parent and sibling or siblings can take part while the other hangs back with the youngest.

    But hope it all works out. Have a magical time!
