    Living Seas Comparison?

    So, as some of you know, I'm only 17, and living in New York, like 2 hours from the city. One of my best friends just recently got an internship in the Marine Biology section of the Museum of Natural History, and has just learned an insane amount of information about marine biology and such. One day I told her about the Living Seas in Epcot (she's never been to Disney, but we have a trip planned for next July) and I tried to explain to her how its like the largest man-made ocean thing in the world. Is that true? If not... does anyone have a like reference point for it... meaning like... you can fit __ Spaceship Earths inside it? Know what I mean? I really want her to understand how amazing it is.

    I'm thinking that I read somewhere that you COULD fit Spaceship Earth in the Living Seas. It was something like the DisneyWorld Trivia Book by a fellow named Lew Mongoose or something like that. It's a really good book. You should read it sometime.

    Also according to the Disney website, the living seas is one of the largest man made ocean environment-plus there are some photos there so maybe have your friend take a look at that for more info

    Wow. That is the most amazing thing I have ever heard. BUT. How big is Spaceship Earth? Other than GIGANTIC. In terms of measurement?

    It's big, but there are bigger in the United States. I believe the Monteray Aquarium is a bit larger, and I know there is one in Japan that is gigantic! I believe they even have a whale shark in there! I also believe Mandalay Bay in Vegas has a huge aquarium set up.
