    So family is scuba diving in "the seas" @ Epcot and I'll be all alone since not certified. Wondering what there is to do by myself (age 18) during the dive? Spas are all I can think of and really don't want to do the parks by myself. Please help

    Hi Jennifer! Often on Disney vacations I'm making sure that those with whom I'm traveling get to do everything they want; it's a nice treat to have some alone time at Walt Disney World to do what I want!

    For your own adventure at The Seas, guests who aren't scuba-certified may participate in Dolphins in Depth or the Epcot Seas Aqua Tour. These experiences generally occur earlier in the day than DiveQuest, so you'll still have some free time while your family dives. Check out all of the tours at Disney World to find one that interests you, or visit Sammy Duvall's Watersports Centre for active water thrills.

    One of my favorite Disney pastimes is shopping. In Epcot I love MouseGear for Disney souvenirs, and browsing the World Showcase shops for international items is always fun. Definitely make a stop in Germany at Karamell-Kuche for delicious fresh caramel popcorn and sweet treats! Another fun shopping destination is Downtown Disney. Don't miss Trend-D for cool clothes and Disney Dooney bags!

    A trip to the Senses Spa at the Grand Floridian is a relaxing way to spend a few hours! Book a massage or pedicure, and then spend some time lazing in the steam room and sampling the complimentary juices and spa snacks.

    For a fun, free activity outside the park, head to the Animal Kingdom Lodge for a culinary tour. At 4 p.m. each day, guests who meet at Boma are treated to a 30-minute tour of Boma and Jiko that includes tasty samples of foods from each restaurant. After the tour, stroll out to the savanna to view the giraffes and other animals grazing, and stop in the Zawadi Marketplace store for unique African items.

    Hope this helps!
