The Seas with Nemo and Friends - Epcot
The Seas with Nemo and Friends is located in a corner Future World, to the right of The Land. As you approach it you will see a garden area with eight sculptures of Finding Nemo characters including Nemo, Marlin, Dory, and Gil.
Be sure to go to the Seas with Nemo & Friends when you have time to spend inside, you will miss much more than if you rush through and there is a lot for the children to see at this attraction.
The Living Seas pavilion began to transform in 2004 before it was re-launched as & quot; The Seas with Nemo and Friends& quot; featuring exhibits themed to the popular Disney-Pixar movie, Finding Nemo.
You can board & quot; clam-mobiles& quot; and meet Mr. Ray and his class on a field trip and soon learn that Nemo has wandered off. The journey in search of Nemo includes familiar characters such as Dory, Bruce, Marlin, Squirt and Crush. In the musical finale, Nemo is happily reunited with his class and friends.
Children love the Living Seas and especially Turtle Talk with Crush! This is a very popular attraction and the theatre is very small so you can expect quite long waits. You can minimize these by going early in the day or just before the last show.
You are seated on benches in a small theater that holds about 30-40 people whilst the children sit on the floor. At the front of the theater is a screen that’ s about 8 feet high 15 feet wide. The screen shows an underwater scene. Crush swims to the front and center of the screen and starts talking to the audience interactively. He selects individual people to talk to and identifies them by their location in the theater and clothing they are wearing. He has short conversations with these people. He moves to the left and right of the screen depending upon whether he’ s talking to someone on the left or right. His facial expressions change appropriately. It is great fun.
Children will enjoy the Undersea Robotics area on Level One where they can get into a diver’ s suit and then have to try to use their hands!
You can then walk into a two-story central viewing area, completely surrounded by sea windows that allow them to see the divers up close, carrying out research with marine mammals -- dolphins and sea lions.
Visit the Manatees on the 2nd level. Meet manatees who have been rescued and are being rehabilitated before being released into the wild. Each manatee eats approximately 50 pounds of food each day. Overhead television monitors show a short video on the manatee.
Here you can watch the manatees at feeding time from the upper level and be sure to watch the short film of the birth of a manatee.
Try and spend some time at this attraction it is well worth it.
