The Seas with Nemo & Friends is a dark ride attraction located in the Future World (now renamed World Nature) section at Epcot, a theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. It replaced The Living Seas attraction and re-themed it to be based on the Disney and Pixar animated film, Finding Nemo. It opened on January 4, 2007.

Following the announcement, this attraction was set to became part of The Seas Pavilion.

History[]

In 2003, the process of bringing in elements of the Pixar film Finding Nemo began. This includes the now-popular Turtle Talk with Crush show where the character Crush talks to the audience about marine life by usage of an innovative live CGI system. In 2005, The Living Seas closed for its extensive Finding Nemo layover, which included removing the hydrolators and changing the Seacabs ride. The pavilion reopened in October 2006 with a new name, The Seas with Nemo and Friends Pavilion, as part of Disney's Year of a Million Dreams celebration.

A loosely related attraction using much of the same animation, Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage opened at Disneyland as an update to the original Submarine Voyage, which closed on September 9. 1998. This attraction opened on June 11, 2007.

In late 2019, as part of Epcot's ongoing transformation, the pavilion was renamed The Seas Pavilion. The original pavilion icon returned to its regular use and signage throughout Sea Base began to change to more strongly emphasize the Sea Base theme again and incorporate the park's new fonts and graphic design look.[1]

On March 1, 2020[2], a complimentary scavenger hunt game called "Finding Dory's Friends" was added to the aquarium itself, themed after the 2016 sequel, Finding Dory. Guests use a complimentary booklet to go on a scavenger hunt around the aquarium by looking at the informational signs by the exhibits to find Dory's friends by solving rhyming puzzles based on Dory's singing, which are marine species found in the aquarium itself.[3]

Premise[]

  • Board a “clamobile” and descend below the waves into a “Big Blue World” where Nemo and his friends flit through brightly colored coral reefs and gently swaying sea anemones. Swim with Mr. Ray and his school and see ultra-cool, ultraviolet “jellies.”
  • Dodge underwater mines, a toothy angler fish, and an even toothier Bruce the shark as he lurks in the rusted hull of a sunken ship. Then catch a ride on the righteous East Australian Current with sea turtle Crush and his little dude Squirt, and watch it barrel over you.
  • Your underwater adventure climaxes when the Finding Nemo characters join real, live sea creatures in the massive 5.7-million-gallon saltwater aquarium they call home.
  • Afterward, mingle with even more marine life at The Seas with Nemo & Friends Pavilion (now renamed The Seas Pavilion) at your leisure. Walk all the way around the aquarium and see some of the real-life counterparts of the characters from the film.

Entrance to the Building

Guests board their own 'Clamobiles' and venture into the sea to join Marlin, Dory, and the other memorable characters as they search for Nemo who has become lost again. The first journey through a coral reef where they find Marlin the clownfish searching for Nemo. Farther along the reef they come across Mr. Ray and his students set out to explore and look for Nemo.

Dory soon joins Marlin in the search and they come upon a group of jellyfish. Suddenly, out of the darkness comes an anglerfish that begins to chase them frantically. Guests dive deeper and come upon the wreck of a massive submarine that sits in the center of a deadly minefield. Peeking out from the wreck is Bruce the Great White Shark, and Chum the Mako shark trying to coax Nemo out from his hiding spot. Unfortunately, Anchor the Hammerhead is not part of the ride. They assure him that fish are friends not food in their sneaky voices. Guests' clamobiles are then swept up into the EAC with Nemo, Crush, and Squirt. The current empties out the guests into a massive aquarium where Nemo has reunited once again with his friends.

As they sing a closing song, "In The Big Blue World" (although the ride opened first, the song was adapted from the Disney's Animal Kingdom show Finding Nemo - The Musical), these Pixar characters swim in the real aquarium along with real fish by use of special effect glass. The clamobiles then arrive at the Seabase.
