    I just hope to god they leave the diving elements there. The two Oceaneering/UMEL JIM suits especially; The actual one and the replica. They're extremely rare pieces of deep diving history, and I have family connections with their use. It would kill me inside to see Mousesurplus flogging them off unceremoniously on eBay.

    I hope they keep the Manatee exibit. I stood there for about 20 minutes watching them have a lettuce snack. They are pretty cool to watch in the wild too.

    I did the same thing though we also listened to a chick give a presentation on them so my time was like a half hour! I kept watching the one with a bad tail.

    I saw a pic of one of the tanks with some jelly fish in it--which tank is it? I would like to safely see one up close and not meet one over at Cocoa in the water..

    How long do you think until that add other ______ talk attractions. Like other pixar characters, or maybe traditional animated characters. Because it's an amazing technology, and pretty cheap and easily adaptable, I'd guess (compared to building a coaster...)

    I want a talk attraction in my house...will give me someone to converse with besides a 2 yr old all day...J/K...I know how it works(sort of) but it would still be cool
    It's a Disney thing. If you understood, your only question would be "can I go?"

    Wow! We loved Turtle Talk on this last visit but a number of people in line were remarking on the bad lining area-took up so much space and not very convinient for those milling around, so I hope this is true!
    I am in need of some Disney magic!!

    I have to admit that I've never seen Turtle Talk, but it seems to be pulling the crowds back to the 'Seas, and by all accounts, it's superb. Improving its area? Fine. Recommissioning the seacabs? Excellent, go for it. Throwing out the diving and exploration elements?

    This stinks. I was really hoping to see Turtle Talk when I go early Sept. now I have to wait until next June to see it. Man...the seacabs are cool though.

    I have to admit that I was a little nervous about the news. I am glad that they are refurbishing it. I am sure it will look great when it is completed.
