The Seas with Nemo and Friends was formerly known as the Living Seas. The pavilion has been updated to include the characters from the hit Disney/Pixar movie Finding Nemo. The pavilion has both animated sea life and huge aquariums that are filled with lots of interesting sea animals like sharks, dolphins and rays. Within the pavilion there are several fun and exciting things to see and do.
The fun begins as you walk past the sea gulls outside the building. If you are familiar with the movie you will surely recognize that the gulls are saying "Mine, Mine, Mine." And as you walk and wait in the winding line to board the first ride you can read the informative signs posted on the walls about environmental issues and sea life. Be sure to look up every now and again to see the schools of fish that are projected onto the walls. Try to guess what design they will configure themselves into.
The Seas with Nemo and Friends Ride
A slow continually moving "clam mobile" escorts you through a tunnel-like aquarium for a close up view into the tank and a chance to see Nemo and some of his friends swimming and playing among real sea life and animals. The animated characters and real sea life combine to make for a wonderful undersea adventure that almost recreates the movie Finding Nemo. During the ride you will discover that Mr. Ray and his class are on a field trip but Nemo soon goes off on his own and gets lost. In the end Nemo meets back up with his friends for a happy ending to the ride.
I really don't like The Seas with Nemo and Friends ride. Once you ride it there isn't really any reason to ride it again.
The Seas with Nemo and Friends has lots of fish, sharks and rays in the aquariums.
Turtle Talk with Crush
Turtle Talk with Crush is an interactive theatrical show. During the 12 minute presentation Crush, the super cool turtle dude from Finding Nemo, interacts in real time with guests in the audience.
Dory swims up to visit with Crush during the show. All the while he is answering questions from the audience and telling some funny jokes.
Turtle Talk with Crush is funny. It's like really cool dude.
Nemo and Friends Room
In this area of the attraction you get to observe real fish that look like the characters from the movie. You can look into the tanks and explore from all angles because they are circular tubes or columns. Walk all the way around the tank and see if you can find a real clown fish like Marlin and Nemo or a real Regal Blue Tang just like Dory. Don't miss the seahorses and other interesting animals that are in the tanks, too.
Bruce's Shark World
Don't miss this fun hands-on play area that showcases Bruce, the loveable shark, and his friends. There are plenty of interactive displays and activities for the kids to enjoy and plenty of photo opportunities for the parents.
Caribbean Coral Reef
The second level of The Seas with Nemo and Friends houses a huge salt water aquarium that simulates a Caribbean Coral Reef. It is home to lots of marine life. You will likely see sharks, dolphins and rays along with numerous species of fish.
The second level of the aquarium is an observation deck. Sea Base Alpha is a working research center, and at various times throughout the day members of the Sea Base Alpha team will demonstrate and explain the different things they are working on at the aquarium. Look carefully and you might find a Hidden Mickey in the Aquarium too.
The second floor also has an area where you can learn about manatees. Disney has several manatees that were rescued from the waterways in Florida. They are being rehabilitated at the facilities at Disney and then will be released back into the wild when they are once again able to survive on their own.
Stop by the second level to learn some interesting facts about the manatees as team members answer questions. Maybe you will even have a chance to see these graceful sea cows being fed.
The Seas with Nemo and Friends Dining
The Coral Reef Restaurant provides a spectacular view of the Aquarium. It is the perfect place to sit and observe marine life up close while you enjoy a fresh seafood meal. Be sure to make advance reservations as this is a popular restaurant in Epcot.
When you arrive at the front desk to check in ask for a window front table that faces the aquarium for an unforgettable view. If one is not available, don't worry. The seating is tiered so everyone has a pretty good view. It's just that the front seats allow you to get an up close and personal look at the fish that swim by in front of your table.
