I did this dive on March 8th 2011 and it was a good time. Others have said it but I want to say it again, they will not let you bring your own camera but they will provide you with a DVD for a $35 donation to the Disney Wildlife Fund the same fund that you donate to for the dive so you can feel good about it. They no longer give out the T-shirts that everyone has mentioned, but now you get a bag that is really great for stuffing your wet bathing suit into after the dive. Disney provides everything you need for the dive and post dive except the dry clothing you walk in wearing. If you want to do this dive all you need to show up with is your C-card, ID and a bathing suit, they even have hot showers shampoo, conditioner and dry towels for after the dive. All the gear when I went was ScubaPro, I liked the boots so much I bought a pair when I got home. Everyone has mentioned the aquatic life in the tank and I wrote most of it in my log, turtle, sand tigers, fish, ray etc. but the real highlight for me were the people on the other side of the glass. There are fish in every lake, Ocean and Gulf I have ever dove in, but people that you can interact with, now that is really cool. When I was there they had a Wedding going on in the hospitality room and that was a lot of fun to see as well. The people in the restaurant were more interested in their food than the divers and were less fun to interact with. One lesson I came away from this dive with is that you should never tap on the window of an aquarium whatever you are trying to attract won't know where the sound is coming from, and it is just distracting to them.
