The Seas with Nemo & Friends opened in 2006 and made history as the first Epcot attraction that was based off of a Disney animated movie.
In this attraction guests will search for Nemo, who has once again gotten lost in the big blue ocean. Inside of the “Clamobiles” guests will journey through the ocean and scenes from the first movie. They will see a coral reef and Marlin, Mr. Ray and his students singing and exploring, and even the dangerous field of jellyfish that Marlin and Dory encounter.
Further along guests come across Bruce and Chum as they hangout in submarine wreckage looking for tasty bites to eat. After escaping the jaws of these sneaky sharks, guests will ride along the East Australian Current with Crush, his son Squirt, and Nemo as well.
The current takes guests to the end of their ride where they see all the characters singing “In The Big Blue World”. Prepare for this song to be stuck in your head for the rest of the day, even Peach the Starfish from the film is there to tell you how catchy that song is. The end of this ride has views of the real aquarium in the background to add a feel of real ocean life to it.
Location & Wait Times
The Seas with Nemo & Friends is located inside of Epcot in the Future World portion of the park. Guests can find this attraction situated between the Coral Reef Restaurant and the Aquarium, it is also connected to both of these. The ride will also exit into the aquarium providing another fun activity for the whole family to enjoy. It is also very close to SpaceShip Earth as well as The Land.
Wait Times for this ride are typically quite low. There are many points of the day that guests are able to simply walk through the queue and directly onto the ride, with no wait at all.
The queue for The Seas with Nemo & Friends sets the scene for the ride very well. It begins as a relaxing beach with the sounds of ocean waves crashing in the background. It is created to look like guests are walking on a boardwalk and there are even sculptures along the queue that look like beach plants and animal life.
As guests continue on their way they will see that the light changes and gives the illusion that guests are walking into the water, and eventually consumed by the water as well. Although there is no real water, the lights become dark and blue and the queue floor changes to look like the ocean. The sounds of the crashing waves is replaced by the gentle, bubbly tones that play in the Finding Nemo movie.
Cast Members are there to direct guests to the clamshell by telling them to “just keep swimming” and shortly after guests are able to explore the deep blue to look for Nemo.
